The Gourmet Next Door: Love It or Hate It?

Has anyone been watching The Gourmet Next Door, Amy Finley's new cooking show? The television series was Amy's prize for winning the Next Food Network Star and debuted on Food Network about six weeks ago. After watching a few episodes, I can't help but wonder why this woman has a cooking show. She's nervous and uncomfortable in the kitchen. She comes across uninformed because she doesn't mention measurements. When she spills ingredients or burns a dish, she ignores her sloppy mistakes.

On the other hand, her recipes are interesting and scrumptious sounding. I may even give her Moroccan chicken stew a try. Still, a successful cooking show is about so much more than good recipes, right? What do you think?
