Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade Recipes

Recommended Posts

I received this for my birthday from my Aunt. It's a collection of her recipes in a cute little red box. I haven't tried out any of the recipes yet but they all look delicious! Has anyone else heard of her or made any of these recipes? I cannot wait to pick some of these out and try them! I'll share them here as I make them...

ok, my honest opinion...i think her show and recipes are crap...she uses really crappy ingredients and her technique is really bad...maybe i am a food snob but i am always amazed that on her show she has nice cooking gadgets like the kitchenaid but uses a cheapie hand mixer...she is all style, no substance in my opinion...

 

i know this sounds mean but i watch her show and think "what is she thinking!"

 

if you google her funny things come up about her calling her the "semi-ho" and stuff because she seems to get wasted on her show alot.

hehehehe.... If you're a food snob, so am I... :) I'm the same way about her. I find her show mostly annoying and "gimmicky"...

I tend to think of her as a "Home Ec" teacher: she teaches easy and fast ways to throw together a meal, which is great for people just starting to learn to cook. My mom wasn't the best cook (for real- I was 19 before I realized meat actually had JUICE in it!) and she wasn't exactly the 'motherly' type to teach me how to cook. So the Sandra Lee type of cooking was great for me before I started enjoying cooking in my mid-20's.

Now that I've learned how to blend flavors together, tried experimenting and learning that way, etc.... I prefer to create in the kitchen and cook from scratch instead of using a lot of shortcuts like she uses.

These short cuts are exactly what I'm looking for right now. Sorry food snobs! cheesy.gif wink.gif

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
