She later dipped these baked puddings in more eggs and proceeded to burn them in a frying pan. Close ups of burned food, yum.
I could only stand to watch one episode of the newest Craptastic Half Hour of Food Destruction.
Lee is fond of making "untrue food declarations" like the one about sliced mushrooms. Let me tell you where sliced mushrooms originate, Sandra. They are what's left after an employee of either the supermarket or the mushroom grower cuts off the ROTTEN pieces of mushrooms that were likely returned when they went past their date. So let's review. You're paying MORE for shrooms that are likely OLDER than the fresh, whole ones.
If Sandra wants a bargain on mushrooms, she should go to Costco where she can procure a large box of gorgeous WHOLE cremini mushrooms for a song. I'm sure she MUST have a membership or she can't buy cases of cake mix for cheap. I don't think she does much shopping in the regular GROSHERY store, anyway.
Thanks for your observations - you're braver than I. No more "Cheap Junk Meals by a Non-Chef" for me. I only did one ep and that's likely all I'll do.
I did catch Anne Burrell doing her "little plates." OMG, I wanted to jump through the TV, everything looked so good.
