"Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived."

Why Sandra Lee drives me completely bonkers

I temporarily have cable TV right now and I could not resist this opportunity to see that crazy loon Sandra Lee. I'm embarrassed to say I hope I still have access to cable TV on the 15th as she's doing another one of her infamous specials and I really want to see what insanity she's managed to come up this time. *hangs head in shame*

Uh, if your cake to frosting ratio is 1:1 you are doing something wrong. After seeing this, I immediately went over to Television Without Pity to read the Semi-Homemade board to enjoy some fresh snark. *sob* I've really missed the company of like-minded people.

Next up is her infamous Kwanzaa Cake which has been reworked to become her Fall Harvest Cake . Please note that what she called acorns in the video are actually corn nuts. See that blue cake with the star on it to the left of your screen? That is her Star of Hanukkah/Star of David cake which has non-Kosher marshmallows stuffed in the hole of the angel food cake. Later in the episode this cake was on her "tablescape" with a baked ham. Gah!!

I have just found a video that shows her Hanukkah/Star of David cake. The video quality is not the highest but, I'm glad to have it to show to you.

I rest my case. Good day everyone.

edited to add: When I originally posted this, the links to the recipes at the Food Network's website were not working. They are currently working so here are the links:
