Berries and the Bullsh*t


On this episode of Let’s Get Real, The Berries and the Bullsh*t…I’m doing a little happy dance/aqua zumba routine today, to celebrate the closing of not one, but two IHOPS in New York City. IHOP never belonged here in the first place. We never asked for it, it wasn’t on our collective wish-list or our gift registry! Sp take it back! Of course, the empty spaces will probably now be a juice emporia or a bank branch, but whattaya gonna do? At least I don’t have to look at that poster anymore in their window of the jelly donut pancakes, with that little red-poop-like squiggle on the top of the stack…ick. And what actual flavor is jelly donut jelly? Red flavor? What is it, cherry, raspberry, strawberry? Marion Barry? Tee hee… Does anyone even remember Marion Barry?
And hey, while we’re talking red stuff, it’s berry season around here in the northeastern US, so you know what that means….what, you don’t? How long have you all known me now? It BLUEBERRY picking time, as in WILD blueberries, so if you’ll excuse me, I need to get to the studio, do this episode, then head back up to the mountains before the deer eat ’em all. All this and oh yeah, berry-flavored FOODINESS™ on this episode of Let’s Get Real.

Big Brother is Watching…From Sleep-away Camp in New Hampshire


On this episode of “Let’s Get Real”…Uh oh..We’re in trouble. Lil’ Baby LGR, after celebrating her/our 100th birthday show, got a very angry letter in the mail. No, not an angry letter from someone who challenges my use of olive oil for sautéing in some dumb old video, or someone who calls me an “angry smirking lesbian” (as if there were something wrong with being THAT!) for my performance on Chopped, no, not one of those letters. Then who from, you ask? And then you say, “wait a minute, before you tell us who, did you say a “letter”, in the “mail”? Yes, a letter. On paper. From Lil Baby LGR’s older brother, “Why We Cook”, do you not remember him? Oh, come on! He had (approx) 100 episodes on Heritage Radio Network too, but now he’s off the air, and off at camp, and he’s mad at us. For what, you ask?…Well, you’ll just have to tune in and listen, because it’s all in the show. So put down the diet iced tea and fat-free frozen muffin tops, cut off a big slice of watermelon and crack open an IPA instead, and pull up a lawn chair. You have 28 minutes to spare for me and my little family, dont’cha?

Lil Baby LGR Turns 100 And Still Doesn’t Eat Sh*t


Happy birthday to US! Happy birthday to US! Happy birthday dear Let’s Get Reeaaaaallll, Happy birthday to US! Today is LGR’s 100th episode, and we celebrated by attending the annual Fancy Food Show in NYC. And boy, what a fancy food show it WAS! So fancy, I felt underdressed. And you know I’m usually quite a fancy dresser. So, in this week’s episode, we take you along through the five thousand or so aisles of the biggest food and Foodiness™ infested trade show of the year; tasting, snacking, schmoozing and elbowing our way to the good stuff like the pro’s that we are. Who knew there were a million or so variations on the kale chip, or the seasalt caramel? Well, now I know, because I tasted them all…ick.
