2 Minute Recap: Fancy Pancakes

Back by popular demand is "2 Minute Recaps." A spinoff of "Harriet Carter Wednesday," watch my favorite Harriet Carter model, Rachel Platt, host this online cooking show like a champ. If you're new to this, check out the explainer by clicking here. Now that we're all settled, here's my craptastic recap of this weeks episode of fancy pancakes and Rachel's rack of rack!:
  • It's time to make crepes and Rachel is not only already slurring her words a bit whilst falling out of her shirt, but she almost seems ready to orgasm when she cracks the secret code and discovers that they are, in fact, making "tiny little pancakes." Tiny little pancakes, but "big huge rack."
  • Rachel, of course, it immediately 100% confused when "Chef Mario" tells her they are going to whisk the pancake mix. She literally says, "What is this?" Really Rach? Never seen or heard of pancake mix before? She then repeats "pancake mix, more water." Seriously, I think Rachel shouldn't be allowed to sleep without one of those baby monitors in her bed just to make sure she doesn't suffocate herself at night.....or that her boobs don't explode. Better to be safe than sorry.....whatever that means.
  • The brilliant questions keep on coming when Rachey-poo asks "Chef Mario" if she can just buy crepes if she wanted to. Sure Rachel, you can totally buy crepes, but see those cameras around you? Know how you have a microphone on? Yeah, well you're actually hosting and filming a cooking show (believe it or not) so if you went out and bought the crepes there would be no show for you to host. I know, I know. Once in a while it's important to think about what you're going to say and then say it if you think it still makes sense.
  • Um, if they're making a breakfast dish why are they drinking wine? I guess it's 9:30 somewhere!
  • Yeah, no one on the "set" of this show believes in yelling "cut." Ever. Chef Mario flips the crepe and it rips and folds over a bit and they just show it in the pan like that. Looks like shit to me, jackass.
  • So who didn't know that Rachel was going to say "you can't over do it, right?" when they are filling the crepe with jelly. Uh, yes Rach you could over do it. You could put too much jelly in it. That would over do it. Kinda like when they filled your rack with all that silicon. That kinda over did it. Just sayin'.
  • Finally, the crepes are done and they look like retarded fortune cookies. No thanks, I'll pass.
  • What a cute little touch by having the dog bark at the end. It probably found the old chef, "Chef Will," tied up in Rach's bedroom. Skanks.
