I saw a great new cooking show that I believe started today. It airs on CBC(Canada) so it might not be available down in the States. But, I tracked down the website and they seem to stream episodes on-line. http://www.cbc.ca/bestrecipes/
The host is a fresh new face and she comes across with the enthusiasm of Rachael Ray...without the annoying parts. I've only seen one episode. But, the recipes seem pretty straightforward and the host doesn't dumb them down too much. It made me hungry when I was watching it, which I imagine is a good sign.
