Sandra Lee, mostly drinks

I have been watching her little marathon today, most of her recipes seem to be for cocktails, meals come second.

  1. And this is a surprise because.....????? ;-)

    I saw that it was coming up after Ina Garten this morning, but I had a really REALLY good meal with friends Saturday evening, and I just didn't want to see it again. The meal, that is.

    I had to quickly change the channel when she started talking about beerscapes. BEERSCAPES! ::::shaking my head:::::

      Nothing says family dinning like a 'Beerscape'.

        I so know I'm going to be sorry I asked ... but, much like a moth to the flame ... exactly what in Sandra Lee's strange world might a beerscape be?

        (I'm guessing my thought of building a city with bottles of ale probably isn't it. Nor constructing a diarama with Silver Bullet cans.)

          Someone else will have to answer if they watched it; this was one car wreck I wasn't about to stop for.

      2. this has been the best day of food network programming in years.

        1. she's on for humor. My wife has actually shuddered and made some recipes which actually were pretty good. THat being said, 2 out of 4,000 dishes shouldn't stun people so much, but it does.

            R U saying only 2 out of (potentially) 4,000 dishes she's made are the only bad ones?

            1. re: LindaWhit

              no 2 of the 4000 she's made are any good. Typically if you keep throwing em out, something's gotta stick, still shocks the crap out of me when they actually do work.

              Btw, her "drinks" can be pretty nasty too, and all tend towards cloying or gross.

              1. re: Icantread

                Actually, if you keep throwing them, you could create wallscapes to match her tablescapes. ;-)

          2. One of my colleagues has a few times brought in food made with recipes she saw on SL's show and I must admit that they were pretty good.

            1. Beerscapes. I think we made those in college. Pile the empties on top of the coffee table to see how high we could get it, at four in the morning.

                Ahhh, yes. But were they COLOR coordinated according to brand of beer?

                1. re: LindaWhit

                  At four in the morning and after 'creating' the empties we thought it looked pretty darn good! Then next morning/afternoon not so much but then nothing much looked good at that point
