Here, on my own in Boston, every night is a chance to prove I’m a real-life person via cooking myself something that does not incorporate a microwave and/or only eating Pop-tarts. And how do I accomplish this? I Google recipes. I follow food blogs. I piece together my own version of Chopped with whatever’s left in my pantry. I decided to see if my online culinary-crutch could be seen in the Cooking category, and I was pleased to see one of my all-time favorite food stars ascending the ranks. That’s right: Paula Deen is on the rise! Sure, nutritioncuisine.com might have enjoyed a 250.71% MOM increase, but the celebrity chefs are not underrepresented in June’s top movers. May the odds be ever in their flavor!
