What celebration of Kwanzaa would be complete without Sandra Lee’s infamous Kwanzaa cake?

For those unfamiliar with Sandra Lee, her gimmick is that the ingredients in her recipes are primarily prepared foods, a food-preparation technique (I'm reluctant to call it cooking) which she calls "semi-homemade."

First, the creation one critic called "an edible hate crime."

Next, the apology from the creator.

I guess I imagined something more refined. And I know the Corn Nuts were disgusting, but she didn't. As a matter of fact, the more tasteless the recipes got the more she liked them, the faster she approved them.

  1. The horror… the horror…

  2. (by the way, the first link is semi-broken, it brings to an existing page but the player says that "the requested video cannot be found" – maybe they hid it out of shame?)

    [The video is probably blocked outside the U.S. (Out of shame?) -Raymond]
  3. Nobody doesn't like Sandra Lee…

    Why does she call the Corn Nuts 'acorns'?

    haha. i love cooking, even the occasional "semi home-made" but this went too far!!! what i really like about this is how all cooking shows people acting "wow, this tastes so delicious" funny part here is she says that before she even has tasted it! more funny as the apology that comes out…Thanks for sharing.

    Wikipedia says "the most ghastly-sounding dish in Lee's culinary repertoire"…

    Should I be amused or disturbed that the pre-roll ad I saw was for a Surface?
