Anyhow, the Food Network continues to provide me with warmth and entertainment during this icy day.
Let me tell you... Miami is looking better and better each day.
How do you think Emeril will be as the host/master of ceremonies for the first-ever Food Network Awards? Hopefully better than his ill-fated sitcom.
In other news, D.C. blogger Jordan Baker has up a hilarious recap of her Sandra Lee Potluck.
They really went all out with their Cosmoritas, Champagne Punch, Cheddar Ranch Dip, Crab and Shrimp Dip, NACHO POTATOES, stuffed crescents, and Boston cream cupcakes.
Jordan even created a nifty little rating scale based on: ease of preparation; visual appeal of finished product; how interesting/innovative the recipe sounds; how appealing/tasty it sounds; smell; texture on palate; flavor; whether they would eat/drink the dish again.
Unfortunately, Sandra's potluck only seemed to prove what many of us probably thought all along:
In summation, the best thing I can say of our Sandra Lee cuisine is that nothing was better than mediocre, and many things fell far shy of that mark. And if mediocrity works for you, that's fine. Eat your Hidden Valley Ranch and your imitation Krab meat. Get all your fruit and vegetables out of a can. Fill your clinically obese bodies up with even more salt and preservatives. Drape a different color of Christmas lights around the room every day and pretend that means you care about your home and family. Die of heart disease or complications of diabetes before you hit fifty. See if I care. But please shut up about how Sandra's way is "great and simple." It's not.
