  1. Just no. Do not dye your lasagna blue or pink. No.
  2. Yes, but then she might have to learn from (gasp) a lesbian. You know Anne would pick Jill for her team just to torture her.
  3. Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    This is where I've seen it and I have forbidden my TiVo to ever delete it. I have looked for how to buy it, too. Please let me know, @ChiCricket, if you do figure out where to buy it. I want to own it without pledge breaks to fast-forward through!
  4. Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    We arrived in Puerto Rico very late last night after travelling all day from Northern California. Our reward for arriving was seeing the eclipse from the deserted pool area at our hotel while the waves lapped on the shore. Spectacular. We are here because my husband surprised me with a trip and VIP tickets to see Lin-Manuel in Hamilton on Thursday night. I still can't believe it. I have been addicted to this soundtrack for the better part of a year now. The PBS documentary "Hamilton's America" is a good way to get a tasted of the show. I can't believe we're seeing it this week. I was already happy to have booked a ticket to see it in San Francisco in March and now to see it with Lin-Manuel in the titular role, I'm completely geeking out. Sorry for fan-girling all over the place.
  5. S05:E03 Caterpillar to Butterfly

    This episode was the first one where I noticed that Jazz's immaturity is modelled by Jeanette. Holy cow, grow up, woman! I see where Jazz gets some of her ideas about how to be a modern woman and that is a bit scary.
  6. Love It Or List It

    It's either where do they find them or why do the producers insist on the homeowners making themselves look like such idiots. Or both, I suppose.
  7. That depends on where in the US you are. Many areas in my part of California have made it illegal to use Styrofoam for take-out food, precisely because it is horrible for the planet. But no Duggar has ever cared about the planet.
  8. S16.E07: Carne!

    OT but I’ve made a Marc Forgione recipe a couple of times that includes a red wine/ port/ veal stock reduction with blueberries and bleu cheese over steak and, though it takes a couple of hours, it is fantastic!
  9. Guy's Grocery Games

    I liked the two women the best on this episode, too. And though I can't cite sources at the moment, I have read that Guy is not the homophobe the interwebs purports him to be. I mean, he's friends with the godawful Robert Irvine and that is damn near unforgivable but I have read pieces quoting those who work with him that claim he is a good human being and not homophobic.

    This to the nth.
  11. Chopped 2019: Put Down the Chopsticks

    I don't think I've ever seen for sale on a menu or in a market. I certainly hope FN makes an effort to responsibly source their food but I don't know that I've ever heard them say so. Here's what the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch has to say about marlin: "Look for other "Best Choice" seafood options first. If none are available, blue and black marlin caught by Hawaiian fleets (including vessels landing in California) are "Good Alternatives," but know that there are environmental issues with these sources. Striped marlin caught by Hawaiian fleets in the Eastern Pacific is also a "Good Alternative," but it’s on the "Avoid" list when it’s caught in the Western and Central Pacific because it's depleted and undergoing overfishing in this region. Say "No, thanks" to imported marlin. "
  12. Worst casting choice?

    This times 100.
  13. Guy's Grocery Games

    Just watching this now. I honestly did not understand what she was trying to say. Opple waffles and chicken that she was not going to put in the fraaaaarrr served with coconut serp. They were the most annoying team, followed by the somewhat dim but affable mother-daughter team. I liked the team that went home first the best. I need good people on these episodes to try to offset the awfulness that is Robert Irvine.

    Oh, I totally agree, actually. I just think some of the tunics she wears swallow her. I've been a low-level fan since she was on One Day At a Time when I was a teenager. I remember twice she wore something on that show that I actually owned and I was thrilled. I know she has struggled with weight and I did not mean to criticize her, just to comment that some of her shirts look a bit too big to me.
  15. The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    All those emojis make me stabby. But at least it's a personal message, rather than the "servant's heart" blather.
