        Will the first season of Masters be available (with recipes) for Christmas stocking stuffing?

          SERIOUSLY good news, Phaedrus! I was slammed at work this afternoon and am just reading this now. You sure know how to make a gal happy. :-) Can't wait to see who's chosen as the Master participants. :::::Doing the Snoopy happy dance, happy dance::::

              Yes, but will my adorable love be on the show this time? A LindaGirl can ONLY hope. ;-)

                The only fault for me of this show is Kelly Choi. She's even worse than Padma as a host(ess).

                  I didn't like her at the beginning, but she was fair. Still don't like the BobbleHead she's got on her tiny shoulders. She is most definitely there just as a hostess - I don't think she gets to taste the food during the QuickFire.

                  And she is most certainly *not* my adorable love I mentioned. :-) (please, please, please PLEASE have Ripert on this Masters season! please please please PLEASE!)

                    LOL @ BobbleHead.

                      Petty but I don't like watching her eat. She draws her lips way back like the food in on the other side of a fence and she needs to get her teeth to it.

                        Ah, yes - I remember that. Can't smudge that lipstick you know. :-)

                          I use to see Kelly Choi joggin in my neighborhood. I'm guessing she's moved because I don't see her any more but she use wore make up during these jogs. Not just a little but a face full of make up, it was just silly.

              Since Kelly Choi tweeted it, that must mean she's been renewed, too? I could do w/out her.

                Since I have been following her tweets, I have begun to like aher a lot more than during the season. I hope she lets a little more of her personality come through, much like Toby inthis season of TC, I think she needs to relax a little. She definitely has a cool job, outside of TCM.
