that's garlic jello in the center. makes it look like a roast rack of hot dogs.

i asked dw to make that for me for my birthday. the look of horror on her face was my gift.

Spring is finally here! I got so excited that I wet my plants...

Ewww...! I bet you both had a good laugh over that suggestion.

disclaimer....my late mom never made such horrific dishes...I just liked looking through those recipes and laughing, even back then...

That was a good read Cheryl. Thanks for sharing it!

I don't know the regulations that were in effect in 2012 when the article was written, but I hope they might be tougher than those in the 1990's. Back then I did food demos at a local grocery store for a regional chain. My supervisor had come to our store from a job at Meredith Corporation. She created recipes, wrote magazine articles and cookbooks, and worked with food photographers and stylists all the time. Heather would say "I make it taste good, then they make it look pretty". And she would certainly tell us that the stylists had much tougher jobs than she did - she really admired their skills. But the rules limited the food stylist as to how much "lipstick and hairspray" they could use. I would think the rules now are at least as strict as they were in the 1990s.
