Sandra Lee gets a magazine?

YET MORE FOOD: It looks like another Food Network regular has scored a magazine deal. Hoffman Media, the company behind "Cooking with Paula Deen," is planning to publish a new magazine with Sandra Lee, a New York Times-bestselling author, who has also made a few appearances on People magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People list.

Hoffman Media LLC is offering a subscription for six issues of Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade magazine for $19.98, to begin with the February/March premiere issue. The cover price will be $4.99 and it will be published six times a year with a print run of 280,000. It will have recipes, entertaining tips and home decor advice. More information could not be learned, as Sandra Lee did not return calls by press time.

    Because there's going to be little to no actual content. :-)

    1. Oh goodness, where to start...

      Nah, shooting fish in a barrel.

      OK, a list:

      Table scapes
      Color coordination
      Getting schnockered on the air
      Anything to do with lively and lovely alcohol punches
      The Kwanzaa cake and corn nuts.

      Discuss amongst yourselves.....

      1. Wow. Really? I thought she was so over...

          Remember "Mirror, Mirror"? The Star Trek where evil Spocks and Kirk reside in a parallel universe. OK, we just went there.

            That is just great, Phaedrus!!

              If nothing else was proof of that, I'd say it would have to be the Kwanzaa cake.

              1. re: flourgirl

                Have you read the reviews on the Kwanza cake? They're priceless. I think my favorite is the one calling her cake a "hate crime."

                  A "hate crime". That's hilarious.

                  1. re: flourgirl

                    I hope the NAACP sues her for something because of that Kwanzaa cake.

          2. A sneak peek at Sandra's Holiday Special:

              Internationally acclaimed home and style expert?


            2. Either I had a really bad dream last night, or I saw a commercial while watching a portion of Iron Chef America for an entire Food Network magazine, emcompassing several chefs' work, and other scintillating tidbits?

                I saw it too--be a charter subscriber! or not

              2. I see it being along the lines of the .99 cent Kraft recipe booklets that come out every few months. I'll pass.
