"When it comes to eating right, or perhaps more important, cooking right, my go to person has always been Tina.  With my schedule and all the dangerously tempting food options out there, that's a clearcut recipe for disaster, but Tina always goes back to the basics, and then provides the answers to keep me - and just about everyone else - on the right track.  Nothing beats common sense backed with facts and good judgement, and that clearly defines Tina's advice." - Peter Greenberg, CBS News
