For those so interesting in the doings and musings of Lisa Garza, Suze co-owner and would-be Next Food Network Star, she's posted a rather lengthy what-up in the comments sections of yesterday's wrap-up. She begins thusly, before reposting a treatise she wrote earlier for SideDish: "I only wish the bloggers really understood what it's like to do one of these shows. You could never imagine, even if you watched, what it's like to live in that 'reality.'" A riveting must-read, preferably over a late breakfast of French toast. --Robert Wilonsky
