......ran into this.......described as almost comical....


.......Food Network has removed it from their website but it lives on......via the internet.....



Kwanzaa Cake

.......Much of the criticism of Lee has coalesced around a recipe for "Kwanzaa Cake" that she demonstrated on a 2003 episode of Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee. The recipe consisted of angel food cake topped with icing, cocoa powder, cinnamon, apple pie filling, pumpkin seeds and acorns (all store-bought), with seven Kwanzaa candles then inserted into the cake.

Food writer Anthony Bourdain, who was harshly critical of Lee in general, described the video clip of this segment of the show as "eye searing" and "a war crime". The cake was called "scary" by the Houston Chronicle, and "the most ghastly-sounding dish in Lee's culinary repertoire" by Tulsa World. Salon.com wrote that the video "takes pride of place in the pantheon of hilarious culinary disaster videos".

Cookbook author Denise Vivaldo, who claims to have ghostwritten recipes for many celebrity chefs, wrote a humorous post in The Huffington Post in December 2010 stating that she was responsible for the recipe (though she said that the candles were Lee's idea), and apologizing for it. She also wrote that Lee "has incredibly bad food taste". A week later, the post was removed, after Lee's lawyer threatened legal action. Lee has said this recipe is the only one of hers whose criticism she has taken to heart, and that the recipe was partly due to the Food Network dictating the show's content at the time......



here is link to youtube to the actual video of the recipe.......?!

This is my favorite horrible recipe. It should count as a hate crime. The corn nuts, i mean 'acorns' really sell it.

This shirt rocks!



She went after Jews, too

Take an ordinary cake, dye the frosting blue and voila! A Jewish holiday cake! tongue sticking out smiley

* Most marshmallows are made with gelatin from unkosher animal bones. It just shows how clueless Sandra is in terms of taste, presentation and ethnic sensitivity. As with her other recipes, I wish I could give it 0 stars.

Decades ago, that was widely considered so. And in that time, a lot of gelatin was made from pig skins, so doubly awful. But even then there was a bit of debate because animal bones and hides are not considered food and are defacto “kosher.”

I think the majority today has gone the other way: Gelatin is generally kosher.

And for those who don't think so, there are kosher marshmallows made from fish-gelatin.

It's very possible that she crammed kosher marshmallows in there.
