The 14th season of Semi-Homemade Cooking, the Food Network's cooking-meets-entertaining-meets-fashion program hosted by Sandra Lee, premiered yesterday. How did the first episode live up to the press release's promise of "a razzle-dazzle fusion of food and home-fashion," "an eye-popping new set," and "dynamic, doable and dramatic tablescapes"? Break out the sunglasses, people—if the photos above are any indication, it's gonna be a helluva razzley, dazzley season. Let's hope those neons don't distract New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo—Lee's boyfriend—as he chases after the gubernatorial seat.
