‘Sister Wives’ Star Christine Brown Lands Digital Cooking Show After Kody Brown Split

Christine Brown is moving on to bigger and better things after her November split from husband Kody Brown. The 49-year-old Sister Wives star ended her plural marriage to Kody after years of tension on the TLC reality series, and now “just Christine” is getting her own digital show.

Cooking With Just Christine is a new digital series featuring the mother of six sharing some of her favorite, easy recipes for fans. It will stream on Instagram and on TLC.com every Sunday.

The network shared a cute teaser trailer clip of Christine and her daughters preparing and tasting the foods.

“You know me from Sister Wives but what you might not know is how much I love to cook!” Christine says in the clip. “So get your apron ready, because Cooking With Just Christine is coming to TLC.com.”

The “just Christine” part of the title seems to be a nod

‘Cooks with Collars’ videos show what priests are cooking up in the kitchen

ALLENTOWN, Pennsylvania — When priests hang up their clerical robes, grab their aprons and head for their kitchens, what’s cooking?

The answer can be found online at www.CooksWithCollars.com, where the Diocese of Allentown has posted cooking videos from 35 priests from parishes around the diocese as part of a friendly cooking competition.

“In the life of every cook, there comes a moment of truth,” an introduction to the series says. “Heroes will rise. Cakes will fall. So whatever you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it for the glory of God. And a vote or two.”

Proceeds of the “Cooks with Collars” competition go to the diocesan Catholic Charities agency and to each participating parish. Parishioners can vote for their favorite video by making a donation on the website. As of Feb. 16, the competition, which runs through March 1, had raised over $110,000.

BBC’s ‘Two Fat Ladies’ Was the Perfect Fat-Positive Cooking Show

I generally don’t watch a lot of food television. After thinking about food and eating all day at work, the last thing I want to do is hear more from chefs as they prattle on about their amazing creative abilities and personal struggles on an episode of Chopped.

It doesn’t help that the format has been warped and abused over the past decade, with cooking shows growing ever more absurd in their attempts to attract viewers. From Guy’s Grocery Games to Gordon Ramsay’s Next Level Kitchen, I have no real tolerance for fucking around with the already-dramatic process of cooking by, say, making chefs switch kitchens in the middle of preparing the entree. Which is probably why I have an unrelenting love for the quiet simplicity of Two Fat Ladies, the best cooking show in television history.

Premiered in the United Kingdom in 1996, the BBC show

Lisa Ling On Her New HBO Max Food Show, ‘Take Out’

Despite the fact that HBO Max gave her a show about food, Lisa Ling never really learned how to cook. “Grandma never taught us,” she reflects during episode two of Take Out With Lisa Ling, sitting in the Chinese restaurant once owned by her grandparents in Northern California. “She didn’t want us to have to work in a restaurant.” Now, 30 years into a successful career as an investigative journalist, debuting a docuseries that explores Asian American culinary histories feels like both a tribute to her grandparents’ legacy and an exploration of shame — specifically, the shame they felt about restaurant work and that she felt about her identity growing up — especially as she looks at the complex dynamics in Asian diasporas around food, tradition, and class.

In this six-part series, Ling unearths some of the buried stories of Asian America and retells them plate by plate. The
