Okay, first of all, I would like to protest that THAT LAST POST about Scrooge and Love Actually etc etc was definately created after midnight. That was today's post, people. This is just wrong.
Second, have I mentioned my intense dislike for this woman?
Oh my, I do not like her at all.
I am not in the habit of hating random people on television - I figure that I am not the target market for most shows, and so, when a professional presenter is in some way distasteful, I barely notice. Even on shows I love, I can overlook a great deal - for example, the presence of Nina Garcia (Stacie knows why I am snickering.) But this woman...Foodnetwork.com tells me that she has authored 13 cookbooks! That she went to the Le Cordon Bleu!
All I know is, I just saw her make a drink that involved hot apple cider, bourbon, mulling spices and... COOL WHIP.
Seriously? Come on, Food Network - Seriously?! Really, seriously?
(I want to say that I'm not a snob, at least not a very convincing one. I have enjoyed my share of Cool Whip through the years. But seriously - even if you care nothing about weird fats, or about flavor - non-dairy whipped topping in a hot clear liquid is a bad idea. )
