by in Holidays, Recipes, December 5th, 2010

12 Days of CookiesIt’s time for 12 Days of Cookies, FoodNetwork.com’s annual cookie swap. Each day visit us here on the Dish for a peek at new holiday cookies, party-planning tips and top techniques for rolling, spooning, slicing, baking and decorating delicious sweet treats to give – or keep – from favorite Food Network chefs. Then visit Cooking Channel’s blog for great takes on holiday baking from Cooking Channel chefs and Food People alike – cookies by the dozen to celebrate all season.

Turn ready-made sugar cookie dough into a dessert fit for anybody who graces your doorstep this season. Just add raspberry jam, lemon extract and chopped pecans, and voila — Sandra Lee’s Raspberry Cake Bars! Personally I think they’d be just as good for breakfast — especially if I can snag the corner piece.

Semi-Homemade Money?

by in View All Posts, April 10th, 2009

Whats better than George Washington on your dollar bill? Sandra Lee! Take a lookey-loo at what the SC got her hands on:

Ms. Lee was just in the FN offices talking biz. That’s how I got my mitts on this green. The word from the top, “she is very smart and very charming!” And I got the Sandra Lee dollar – whoo-hoo!
Now if only I could get her to sign this bill….

Until then….Heres to eating well!

Wardrobe Malfunction Averted on Semi-Homemade

SandraLeeHalloween
FN’ers love their holidays but no one does Halloween like Semi-Homemade star, Sandra Lee. Aside from coming up with some of the most inventive tricks, treats, cocktails and tablescapes of this spooky season, Sandra knows costumes.

We aren’t talking about bedsheet ghosts and rubber masks. Sandra could literally step onto movie sets with the costumes she discovers.

We caught her between takes, wardrobe changes and a million other things as she shot her AMAZING Halloween Queens episode which aired earlier this week. Imagine cooking, hosting and finishing a long day of shooting — all while balancing a huge, top-heavy wig on your head.

What’s Halloween without tricky costumes?

If you missed Halloween Queens, fear not. Another great Sandra-fied Halloween episode airs today at 4pm ET / PT. Sandra…or should we say Marilyn, or Liz, or Vivien, serves up spicy bat wings and sweet & sour eyeballs, to name a few.

Can’t wait? Check out Sandra’s Greatest Halloween Hits:
