She's also "internationally acclaimed" in Amazonland.


I read this as "irrationally acclaimed."

Fun with Google's new video search: Snadra on ET. Google searches the closed captioning text, so occasionally you get some weird quotes, like this: "I do things Iraq, easier, faster, with less work".

Others:

So have your family and guests join in on the fun. >> Get them involved in the cooking, you relax, just kind of direct everybody, go into the pantry, have everybody make one little dish, have a cocktail. It's all about enjoying yourself and the holiday season and being together.


or

>> Reporter:...Of course Sandra always said she was no Martha Stewart, but the comparison is inevitable. ...
>> Nobody really teases me about being the next Martha Stewart because they know that I'm different.


No, deary, nobody teases you about being the next Martha; we tease you about your oh-so-fake protests because you're the only one who ever brings the subject up.

Concerning tonight's 'presentation' in OKC at St. Anthony Heart hospital.

If you click through to the Sandra Link, they say:

SOLD OUT! The Sandra Lee presentation is sold out, but we’re pleased to share these Sandra Lee recipes with you:


One of the recipes they are 'pleased to share' is Marbled Sour Cream Cake. The ingredients are:

Nonstick vegetable cooking spray

1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels

1 package (18.25-ounce) yellow cake mix (suggest Betty Crocker Super Moist)

1 cup sour cream

1 cup water

≤ cup vegetable oil

≤ cup granulated sugar

4 eggs


How in the hell is that heart heathy? PornQueen, can we get some nutritional values on that?

Another one of the OKC hospital recipes is the beyond bland turkey chili with no seasonings other than spicy black beans and Mexican recipe-style stewed tomatoes. She tosses ground turkey in unseasoned flour (WTF??) and cooks everything for a whopping 8 minutes, so the flavors really have a chance to cook together and blend. Oh so yummy!

God, I hope someone we know goes! Hmm, 4 recipes from the 1st Low Fat show, 1 from the 1st Comfort Food show and a totally new recipe altogether.

TexasTallGal, here ya go! Please note substitutions/assumptions:

Marbled Sour Cream Cake
ok, I have no idea how much "<" is, (is that the "less than" symbol on the page?) so I went with 1/2 cup and assumed it was 10 servings

Per Serving (excluding unknown items): 515 Calories; 29g Fat (48.5% calories from fat); 6g Protein; 62g Carbohydrate; 2g Dietary Fiber; 86mg Cholesterol; 377mg Sodium. Exchanges: 1/2 Lean Meat; 0 Non-Fat Milk; 5 1/2 Fat; 4 Other Carbohydrates.

Southwestern Turkey Chili
I assumed 4 servings for this, per what it says on FoodTV, since she did do this one in a show (same for the cornbread)

Per Serving (excluding unknown items): 246 Calories; 11g Fat (40.2% calories from fat); 18g Protein; 18g Carbohydrate; 6g Dietary Fiber; 56mg Cholesterol; 329mg Sodium. Exchanges: 1 Grain(Starch); 2 Lean Meat; 1 Vegetable; 1/2 Fat.

Cornbread to go with Chili

Per Serving (excluding unknown items): 244 Calories; 7g Fat (25.1% calories from fat); 5g Protein; 41g Carbohydrate; 2g Dietary Fiber; 47mg Cholesterol; 569mg Sodium. Exchanges: 2 1/2 Grain(Starch); 0 Lean Meat; 1 Fat.

Herbed Pork Roast and Gravy
I don't have fat free soup listed as an option, so here is the numbers without the soup alltogether:

Per Serving (excluding unknown items): 158 Calories; 6g Fat (35.1% calories from fat); 23g Protein; 2g Carbohydrate; trace Dietary Fiber; 54mg Cholesterol; 60mg Sodium. Exchanges: 0 Grain(Starch); 3 Lean Meat; 0 Vegetable; 0 Non-Fat Milk; 0 Fat.

here is the number with regular cream of mushroom soup, condensed:
Per Serving (excluding unknown items): 238 Calories; 12g Fat (45.6% calories from fat); 24g Protein; 8g Carbohydrate; trace Dietary Fiber; 55mg Cholesterol; 691mg Sodium. Exchanges: 1/2 Grain(Starch); 3 Lean Meat; 0 Vegetable; 0 Non-Fat Milk; 1 Fat.

extrapolate what you think the fat/calories would be between those 2 numbers I guess

Brown Rice w/ Balsamic Vinager and Tarragon

Per Serving (excluding unknown items): 388 Calories; 1g Fat (2.9% calories from fat); 11g Protein; 80g Carbohydrate; 2g Dietary Fiber; 0mg Cholesterol; 515mg Sodium. Exchanges: 5 Grain(Starch); 1/2 Lean Meat; 0 Fruit.

Vegetables with Broccoli and Lemon Sauce
again, I don't have fat free soup listed, so here is with soup:

Per Serving (excluding unknown items): 244 Calories; 10g Fat (36.8% calories from fat); 5g Protein; 35g Carbohydrate; 4g Dietary Fiber; 3mg Cholesterol; 277mg Sodium. Exchanges: 2 Grain(Starch); 1 Vegetable; 0 Fruit; 2 Fat; 0 Other Carbohydrates.

here is without soup:
Per Serving (excluding unknown items): 226 Calories; 9g Fat (35.4% calories from fat); 4g Protein; 34g Carbohydrate; 4g Dietary Fiber; 0mg Cholesterol; 84mg Sodium. Exchanges: 2 Grain(Starch); 1/2 Vegetable; 0 Fruit; 2 Fat; 0 Other Carbohydrates.

Angel Food Cake with Berries
she just says 1 package berries, I have frozen berries in my freezer, and they are in 12 ounce bags, so I assumed 12 ounces for each berry

Per Serving (excluding unknown items): 329 Calories; 1g Fat (2.1% calories from fat); 6g Protein; 79g Carbohydrate; 6g Dietary Fiber; 0mg Cholesterol; 381mg Sodium. Exchanges: 2 Fruit; 3 Other Carbohydrates.

Isn't is wonderful to have such a sparkling personality and adored by millions? People can't wait to come over and do your bidding while you have a cocktail and enjoy yourself.

Where do I sign up?

OH MY GAWD!! I just looked at St Anthony's website and she actually *IS* making pound cake and pork with mushroom soup!! I thought you guys were snarking!! That PR person who wrote me from the hospital, telling me a dietiCian was ... oh what did she say....?

As you know, this event will focus on preparing heart healthy meals.  As
such, we have carefully selected menu items that she will prepare, and the
selection was made only after a dietician's review.  On the evening of
the event, our dietician will be on hand to answer specific questions from
the audience.  We realize that Ms. Lee prepares a wide range of dishes,
and not every one is heart healthy.  We are only focusing on selected
items that are healthy and at the same time can be prepared quickly
without extensive preparation.


SOMEbody should be looking for a new job...

[OT] I've been recently diagnosed with some borderline high blood pressure. In a vallient attempt to avoid medication, I will control it with diet and exercise. So, I've been paying more attention to labels.

Angel Food Cake with Berries
she just says 1 package berries, I have frozen berries in my freezer, and they are in 12 ounce bags, so I assumed 12 ounces for each berry

Per Serving (excluding unknown items): 329 Calories; 1g Fat (2.1% calories from fat); 6g Protein; 79g Carbohydrate; 6g Dietary Fiber; 0mg Cholesterol; 381mg Sodium. Exchanges: 2 Fruit; 3 Other Carbohydrates.

Holy Canolli, that sucks! Just crappy Angel Food cake and frozen berries and *still* there are 381 mgs of sodium??

Just take me out back and shoot me.

Out of curiosity who signed that letter? I just got back from the event and had the "pleasure" of meeting a bunch of them. So much snark, so little time.
But you will love this - she didn't use the low sodium canned soups, she used the regular ones because "she couldn't find the low sodium soups in OKC". It was classic.

Whoot!!

I admit that I sent her a few serious complaining emails ... including use of "sic" when I referenced her "dietician."

I would be honored if I were responsible for the police presence at the even, but probably not. I might be partially responsible for their welcoming attitude, though!

It's hard to know where to start, but I consider it well worth my time to attend - she didn't let me down. The woman can not focus. I am not lying, she forgot to finish the meal.As soon as she started the champagne cocktail the meal was forgotten - yes she got very excited about happy hour. I want to look up again what the menu was so I tell you the correct items, but the pork loin and at least the rice were never finished or heard from again. What was even more humorous was that at the end of the event there was a lot of smoke onstage and that burnt smell. The event was absolutely not about cooking.

When you came in they were serving.... drum roll please... store bought angel food cake with frozen berries. It wasn't even what she made in the presentation - she cut hers in half (and did a lousy job cutting it) and layered it with berries and cool whip and even stuffed the hole with it. We eavesdropped and listened to what the people seated around us had to say - no one around us had ever heard of her or watched her show. So I'm thinking these were people connected to the hospital and not neccessarily Fandras. They were selling her books for a book signing and they did a brisk business. Fortunately I had received two as gag gifts for Christmas and I had brought them. Favorite quotes from the crowd: "I sure wish they would bring Ina in, she really knows how to cook" and "she doesn't look anything like her picture (from cookbook) I'd never know she was the same person.

Yes, I have a video of the first 30 minutes and photos. Let me just say priceless.

Did she check the craft store?

Probably her wee little brain shorting out and overloading. Did you notice SLop's voice changing or her making strange spastic robotic movements at that point?

Ditto to Shnuglet's question. Also: Did SLop answer any questions? Was she really drinking during the presentation? Also, what was she wearing? Did she have eye-popping cleavage? Porn hair? Heavy eye makeup?

Shnuglet: "Can I feel your Payne?" is one I haven't heard before, and is actually kind of funny, like a bad pick up line.

It only really bothered me in grade school and junior high... everyone thought that Payne-in-the-butt or Payne-in-the-neck or "Your middle name should be Isa" was new and original.

My childhood dentist shared my last name. Now that made me giggle. He was a pediatric specialist. Can you imagine what some kids must of thought when their parents told them they were going to see Dr. Payne?

Now I'm stuck with a Japanese last name that few people can pronounce correctly. Annoying in a different way I guess.

Hey, look at that. Her name is Sandra, too! Coincidence? I think not.


That was her!! She was downright mean and was obviously someone who gets to be important once a year. She could not have done a worse job. About 5 minutes in to the presentation she came racing up the aisle to ask if anyone drove a Honda or some car - turned out it was her mothers and it was being towed! And let me tell you Sandra did not like sharing the stage.

Oh, Lifestylist, did anybody ask the "dietitian" any questions about the healthy qualities--or rather, lack of them--in the recipes--or rather, lack of them?

Yes, and again it was classic. Someone asked about using low fat Sour Cream and if there is a way that you can keep it from seperating. Sandra didn't have a clue, the Dietician (Spelled in OKC-speak) didn't have a clue, I'll get the exact quotes off of my tape. Then I think 3 people asked her about the sodium in the soups - she giggled nervously - couldn't give a good answer to that one nor could the others on stage.

OK, and I did ask one. I told her how much I love her show and I plan my Saturdays around it (true, but not in the way that she thought). I told her that I had read in different magazines that she was referred to as a Lifestylist - how did she come up with that term, and what did the term mean? Her answer was that she didn't - the media gave her that title and then proceeded to talk about 15 minutes about herself. I have a feeling she doesn't have a clue what that means!
