My sister and I almost had our own cooking show on television, but we would've had to be in LA four months out of the year and our six kids were young.
In cleaning out our warehouse I found the master tape of the opening for the show and thought you'd enjoy watching it. The show was going to be called, The Phony Gourmet after the name of the successful cookbook of the same name. Had the show materialized, we would have shared all our short-cut cooking recipes and ideas.
The whole idea for the cookbook was to combine convenience foods with fresh foods and save time in the kitchen. Our motto was, "It's not what you do, it's what they think you do."
I'm clearing out The Phony Gourmet Cookbooks at $5 plus postage. The hardback book originally sold for $15. We're close to being sold out.
I hope you get a kick out of the show open!
