Boys of Summer: Your Perfect Respite From the Summer Olympics
Despite our whining about the length of the opening ceremonies, we really love the Olympics.
We're already sick of some rivalries (looking at you, Phelps and Lochte). And sometimes the tension is just too much to take.
We hear you. That's why this week Cooking Channel is serving up mini-marathons in primetime of The Boys of Summer (Bobby Deen, Bobby Flay and Alton Brown) -- the perfect respite from the 2012 London Olympics.
If tiny soaring 4'10'' gymnasts and scantily-clad buff and bronzed swimmers have you feeling a bit out of shape, Bobby Deen is the answer to your prayers. In six back-to-back episodes, Bobby recreates his mom's legendary (and highly caloric) recipes to be lighter on your wasteline while still packing a huge flavor punch. Watch Bobby cook his way through Game Time Chili Dogs, Monster Mushroom Burgers, Whole Wheat Donut Bread Pudding, Heavenly Milkshakes, Gooey (With Less) Butter Cakes and more.

If quirky food knowledge were an Olympic event, Alton Brown would be the man to beat. Satisfy your Olympic-sized appetite with " The Man Food Show" episode, and get Alton's best party recipes (beer and dips) with " Amber Waves" and " Dip Madness."
