Link to spoof website for Sandra Lee?

I seem to recall reading a thread that referred to a website dedicated to making fun of Sandra Lee's Semi-Homemade Cooking. Since, over my vacation, I've become entranced by her show, and have similarly drawn my husband in to this, I would be grateful for the link to this site - didn't have any luck finding it on Google.

Thanks,

M

  1. I have gotten more belly laughs out of this than any other single website, partially because it is ever-changing, based on what Ms. Lee has foisted upon the unsuspecting viewing public each day. Pure snarky comedy gold. The brand-new crockpot thread is, um, boiling over at present...

      Thanks! BTW - didn't realize she has a magazine .... M

      1. re: MMRuth

        So you mean my husband isn't the only one who calls her the "b**byshake lady" because every time she stirs or beats something up, usually a can of icing with something bizarre, like pickle relish, her breasts shake in a very noticeable manner! And what a great drinking game--every time she says "mmmmm!" and makes a yummy noise (in addition to the little jiggle), you could take a drink!

        1. re: Diane

          I think that my husband (a newbie at only 2-3 episodes) is still too shocked about her "cooking" to have noticed that!

          The other thing that I have noticed is that her entire kitchen decor changes to be "in tune" with the episode's theme. I swear that in the Romantic one, with the pink & black theme, the kitchen aid mixer was pink. And in the City of Lights French Food episode, she had all sorts of signs around that said "Bistro" etc.

          1. re: MMRuth

            Ah, you mean the episode where she referred to France as "the city of lights" and "the city of romance."

            Apart from all that's been already mentioned, her grammar and enunciation are laughable in and of themselves.

              AMNewsboy, do you still have your... um... "stirring"
              pictures?

              1. re: AMNewsBoy

                And from that episode the infamous "treasurly" supposing to be "tres jolie" - let's remember by her on admission she says foreign words fast so people don't realize she doesn't know how to say them....

        2. re: peg

          Holy Cow! Are those people exagerating, or is the show really that bizarre and hilarious? I've never seen it, but it looks like it's time for some Tivo- action.

          1. re: danna

            Some of it is a little over the top, but so is Sandra Lee - it really is unbelievable.

            1. re: danna

              ....what can I say?? Just watch. As Bob recommended,check the TWoP site before viewing...it will make you fully aware of the culinary atrocities you are about to witness. The apple pie napoleon is quite possibly the worst recipe ever perpetrated on the unsuspecting viewing public.

              Don't forget to read the reviews. Talk about snarky! :o)

                I set the Tivo last night! Can't wait!

                1. re: peg

                  I can't resist the temptation to re-post the picture of one of Sandra Lee's most hideous creations - the Hamburger Dog. As you can see from the reviews, any sane person is appalled.

                  I think of her show as a kind of "Island of Lost Souls" for food with her in the role of Dr. Moreau. In her kitchen laboratory normal ingredients are tortured and bent into horrifying inedible creations.

                  Aside from the horrible food, you'll want to pay special attention to her hair - it never looks the same twice.

                    1. re: ladeeda

                      "you GOTTA be sh*tting me"

                      No. That's just what her stuff looks (and probably tastes!) like. :-)

                      I have been fortunate enough to have missed all of her shows. But reading threads here and on the various other SLoP boards, I just might have to watch. Once. If I can bear it. And not after having already eaten. Otherwise, I'm afraid I'll...well, you know. Make a mess that looks like her "recipes".

                    2. re: Bob Martinez

                      no matter how many times i see pictures of her "creations," this one in particular, i am still shocked. it's like an adult version of the fun house. you have to psych yourself up for the experience, you think you're ready for the horror...but you're not!

                      1. re: Bob Martinez

                        Why can't I see any reviews?

                        1. re: Frosty Melon

                          "Why can't I see any reviews?"

                          Sanra Lee's recipes frequently provoke sarcastic, outright nasty comments. Deservedly so.

                          The Food Network periodically "sanitizes" the reviews or deletes them completely. This seems to have happened for the link I posted - the reviews were there this morning.

                          Just so you don't feel deprived I can recall one from memory -

                          "After seeing those Hamburger Dogs I'm glad Martha recently got out of prison."

                          1. re: Bob Martinez

                            That website is absolutely hilarious. I watched the episode for Take out/in last night and could not believe the fact that there might be people out there who take her show seriously.

                            Really, what I wondering is if the fact that she's the laughing stock of the channel ever get back to her via her PR manager? I mean, does she not know how ridiculous she is? Do you think she's seen that website?

                            1. re: Anon

                              I watched last night too and couldn't believe it when she was talking about how she loves cheese, being "a Wisconsin girl"...and then later talking about how she hails from Seattle.

                              1. re: Frosty Melon

                                how about the brilliant trick of her kahlua tiramasu? or watching her trying to take a bite of the pizza? she had a hard time biting through it, looked up at the cameraman, but they didn't take the camera off of her. and then before she even swallows the pizza, she's taking a bite of the tiramisu. disgusting. or how about when she put the tiramisu in the fridge and says, "put these in the fridge for, uh,[glances up at the wall as if she's looking at a clock] a day."

                                ok, i'll shut up now.

                        2. re: Bob Martinez

                          Ahh, looks like she's been stealing ideas from 7-11.

                        3. re: peg

                          Dear God that it is awful meal.

                        4. re: danna

                          I wish they were exagerating more but they really aren't too far off the mark. I recommend watching it with someone so you can have someone to be outraged with. My husband likes getting upset that she never washes her hands after handling chicken. I like to critique her food combinations. We both marvel at the amount of alcohol in her cocktails.

                          1. re: LisaLou

                            How do you think she gets away with serving her schlop? She gets everyone wasted!

                        I'm glad you find Sandra as hilarious as we do. Aside from the weekend craptaculars at 11:00AM you can catch up on Sandy's previous culinary crimes at 5:30PM on weekdays. I recommend you prepare for the episodes each day by checking out the TV without Pity site and seeing the comments from when the episode was originally broadcast. Sometimes it's better to know what's coming.

                            Thanks for the link! I'm becoming a member and getting ready to submit some delicious receipts.

                          2. She has to know exactly how she's perceived by viewers. This is one sharp cookie. (Sharp...Cookie??)
                            Her show is the Food Channel's National Lampoon. "Laugh at me, suckers, I'm gettin' paid and havin' fun."

                            1. You are right! Sandra Lee is unintentionally hysterical.
                              My favorite thing is she alwys seems to be making weird food with beer!
                              Like beer cupcakes.

                              1. Tonight she made baked beans... which began with a can of baked beans. Also on the menu was hot fries: that would be Ore-Idas with a package of chili seasoning on them. Throw in a "drunken watermelon" smoothie/boozey cocktail served over ice with melon balls and a sassy sports-themed tablescape, and someone's got a party!

                                "You can serve the drunken watermelon right from the melon, but I'm gonna serve it up in these fabulous glasses over ice, cuz I need a taste test. It's cocktail time for Sandy! Mmmmmmmm Perfect!"

                                1. I'd like to know who SUPERVISES this woman! She misnames and mispronounces things all the time! Who at the food network says it's OK for her to say MARscapone and call deep-fried pot-stickers "pan fried"??? She is so strange it irks me. She is part of the reason Americans have the reputation we do about eating disgusting processed food!

                                    My favorite is when she adds "fiend herbs" to her food. She means "fines herbes," but of course she doesn't know that. Nor does her target audience.

                                      I was waiting for this... someone was gonna bring this up. I'm surprised they didn't call the episode:

                                      Gettin' Down with Store Bought Barbie.
