Sandra Lee's New FoodNetwork Show

I can't stand Semi-Homemade, but this new concept might be better.



"Sandra's Money Saving Meals will premiere on May 10 at 12 p.m. The show will focus on Lee's "triple A factor" of accessible, aspirational, and affordable food. She'll provide cost-saving tips for grocery shopping and feature innovative ways to use leftovers. "

Thanks - I'll have to try & catch that one.

I don't mind "parts" of her current show, so long as the "semi" part doesn't include a lot of processed foods - which it usually doesn't. But I zone out when she gets to dessert, her cocktail libations, & her decorations.

I don't mind her show, she does give me ideas, but I have to agree, she focuses alot on her "cocktails" and her table scapes. She goes lil way out on that. who wants to spend all that money on stuff to clutter the table and then you have to find storage for alll that stuff. I hate to sit at a table when there is to much clutter and you can't see your guest. I also have never like the ides of place cards, let people sit where they want. You can make a table love great with simple decorations.

Not to sound like a broken record because I am sure we've discussed this before, but the amount of processed foods she uses (that are high in sodium, fat, chemicals) is shocking. I was getting a pedicure on Saturday and the spa had the Food Network on. She made 3 dishes - and I think I counted 4 cans of soup between 3 recipes PLUS a Lipton's dried soup mix. Hello?!! That is enough sodium to kill a camel.
Plus she just annoys me in a thousand different ways. I know some folks like her, so I'll just [try to] shut up now.

I'm anti Sandra too - she isn't even a cook - using way too many
prepared foods.

Ditto!! I can't image her giving believable tips. Kelsey from The Next Food Network Star would be a better host of a show like this.

No one on the Food Network wastes more money on ingredients than Sandra Lee.

Sandra Lee makes a common practice of using sub standard ingredients. I expect nothing different from the new offering.
