I love this show because the recipes work for someone who barely has time between work and everything else to prepare meals from scratch. On the weekends, I'll try "from scratch" recipes from other cooking shows and I have a great time with them. But during the week, I've incorporated Sandra Lee's techniques and they have worked out great.
She's had some really fun ideas for party food and favors. Marshmellow popsicles covered in fondant may not be the height of healthy, but for a party the kids loved them.
While I'm not much into decor, I do love most of the cocktail ideas. You may be cooking for kids, but the grown-ups need some love too!
If you are obsessed with gourmet cooking, or if you want everything to be from scratch, watch a different show.
