And you know her life? You've been there for all her accomplishments? You've shadowed her throughout her life? You are her shadow...

You don't know her actual accomplishments, just what might or might not be on the internet that you found.

Then stop saying hateful things about Sandra, please. She's gone through things very few can understand. There are a very limited group of people here who can understand going to bed hungry, Sandra can understand that. It's a fear I fall asleep with every night. Sandra overcame that dispare, I praise her. She's to be admired, not cut down at every turn.

The table-scape thing ... well, yeah - but my Mom would have loved some of those ideas back when I was a kid and she found herself forced into the "Officers Wives Club". Mom was a Texas girl - comfortable in boots, jeans and sitting on a horse or a tractor (or running around barefoot) - not doing military protocol or Southern hospitality dinners!

Go to your local food bank and look at what they hand out. Then come back and criticize Sandra for trying to take those ingredients and make them taste better. How would you use those same indredients and do it totally "from scratch"?

She is not my favorite TV chef - but I just hate to see a good person getting trashed for trying to make a positive contribution.
Baloney! She's out to make a buck and merely found a niche to sell her wares. Her 70% reliance on packaged products is neither nutritionally sound nor economical. If you want to help someone who is struggling to make ends meet but still wants to prepare nutritious, delicious meals for their family, give them a copy of The Settlement Cookbook, the first edition of which was written for poor immigrants more than 100 years ago; more than 2 million copies of the 40 editions of this treasure have been sold since.

Worse, most of Ms. Lee's recipes are terrible, despite her brief tutelage at Le Cordon Bleu. They're an insult to poor people, just as her "Kwanzaa Cake" was an insult to African Americans. This site says it all: CLICK ME

I'm closing this thread down.

The point of having this section is to discuss the chefs not to get into fights about them.
