Domestic Goddess Cooking Show 2003 Flashback

Roseanne & Johnny had just hooked up (about 11 years ago) and he found himself in the reality show she was doing at the time, “The Real Roseanne.” It was an hilarious premise: a network (ABC) show about Roseanne trying to get a cable cooking show. It was brilliant and ahead of its time (It was Roseanne, after all!). Producers mentioned a theme song for the cooking show & Johnny asked if he could submit one for consideration. Here’s “Somethin’s Cookin’ – he wrote the words and music, played everything in a jazzy, Bluesy organ format, dashed into an LA studio and came out in less than an hour with this demo. Johnny and Roseanne loved the idea of the late, wonderful Phoebe Snow singing it when it got past the demo stage, but that wasn’t to be. But, we thought Roseannearchists and Roseanthropologists might enjoy this little 2-minute slice of history. It’s kind of a fun blast from the past that never really saw the light of day – but Roseanne liked it and that’s all that mattered to Johnny.

    I realize this is a long-shot. My name is Jamie Palmesano and I am from Estes Park, Colorado. Our community is suffering from the effects of a devastating flood on September 12, 2013. Numerous people have lost their homes, businesses have been crippled and the economy of Estes Park has suffered unparalleled loss. In an attempt to help the businesses recover, we have created a website called We are looking for any help in promoting this website and encouraging people to buy from Estes Park retailers, especially during the holidays. Would you be willing to mention this website on any of your social media sites? I know you have Colorado roots and are hopefully familiar with Estes Park. We would be enormously grateful for any “plug” you would be willing to give to support this hurting town. Thank you for considering this request!

  4. hello. enjoyment satisfaction, alike a genuine theme for Roseanne World., jazz light. About the recent **** censorship rants- who the f*** cares n***lette? communication of English language works well with a “G” rating, wider audience…I am in the dichotomy of white supremest oil field industry “clicks” and preferred groups, ‘big-money -chasing’ beautiful whores, and Bakken wastelands of North Dakota: bringing civilization to the Native Americans; via petrodollars. i hate the society, and what they are doing to the land and air (low hanging gas clouds burn your throat), but i am a pauper from Alabama: just alike every other poor working slob coming here for work. Oil barren monopolies and black gold…the only good job around. This country is b******t ! tell the tale without the swearing…, you are still cool.
