I totally should have had her job.  I got cutes, accessibility, my weight is
no worse than Paula or the Contessa's, upstate New York roots and much more
food knowledge.  Phooey.

assessing a show like this, it pays to remember the target audience.  She's
like "Barney" to a 3 year old and we're big kids now.
