    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.

      lol, oh well - I'm still gonna have to try out some of these recipes! We're lazy cooks and just starting out and honestly this looks easy! If they suck I'll let y'all know

        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!

          Btw, I'd never heard of her before this...
