Twice as Nice: Happy 2nd Birthday, Cooking Channel!

Cue the candles and the bubbly pairing for that barbecueCooking Channel turns 2 this weekend. Ready yourself; here come the proud-mama clichés: So big, so fast! So young still, but so smart! It seems like just yesterday we were brand-new on air and just a wee blog online. As much as maturing, we’re still by Food People for Food People.

Remember that first blog post? Okay, you prolly don’t (again that parental pride). Anyhow, as we launched, Cooking Channel General Manager Michael Smith touted our game plan: “Together we’re going to find more ways to explore food and cooking, including the unconventional, how-to, global cuisines, wines and spirits, international travel, history and hidden gems, and even some classic favorites.” Over a couple dozen months we’ve been spinning the globe and peeking and poking and pondering and powering our way from cook to cook, cuisine by cuisine, city by city. We’re becoming the food destination to watch, finding what to eat and drink here on our site, on Facebook, on Twitter and on Pinterest and discovering the best of what to watch, whether it’s on television or with fun (and funny) original series here on our site—Trend Alert, anyone? Fodder for thought…

Stay tuned for even more hot shows this summer.

We wonder what her favorite recipe was!

Just like the Breakfast at Tiffany’s star, chocolate cake is a true classic that everyone can appreciate. There’s nothing quite like a slice of rich, velvety cake frosted to perfection. Truth be told, the right recipe can turn an ordinary night into a fabulous one.

We’ve put together a list of some of our very best recipes that would be Audrey-approved. Face it: there are far worse (and few better) things in life than treating yourself to a slice of chocolate cake.

Inspiration for your glamorous chocolate weekend:
