Clarissa Cooks it All

Sabrina Cooks it All!If you’re my age (shh…27) and you grew up watching Nickelodeon when it had something other than Sponge Bob Square Pants and Rugrats reruns then you probably remember a fab little show called Clarissa Explains it All. Melissa Joan Hart portrayed a precocious teenager with a funky fashion sense and a suitably bizarre family.  And don’t even try to convince me that you didn’t totally have a huge crush on her best friend Sam.  I loved it!

Well now Clarissa is all grown up, just like the rest of us, and according to Ecorazzi she’s teaming up with Lifetime Movie of the Week phenomenon Kellie Martin (aka Becca Thacher or Lucy Knight depending on if you’re a Life Goes On Fan or an ER junkie) to open a resturant.   What theme could these ladies possibly come up with?  I’m seriously dying to know.  I really just hope that there’s some Sabrina the Teenage Witch paraphenial on the walls, and maybe some framed photos of Kellie Martin as “Christy.”  Sort of like a nostaligc 90s teenage girl version of TGI Fridays.  Maybe they could provide diners with complimentary “Girl Talk” boardgames too?!  Sounds like my idea of good time.

I used to love Clarissa Explains it All (and Sabrina the Teenage Witch, too.) I just really like Melissa Joan Hart…can’t wait to see what she does with the restaurant. 🙂

Clarissa Explains It All! What a nostalgia buzz that title gave me and how I love food related “reality” tv. I can’t wait!

I haven’t been reading your site long, but between the Clarissa Explains it All post and the Cherie in the refrigerator post, I can just tell we’re going to be friends.

Oh MAN! What a flashback. Okay, quick question…did you ever watch Roundhouse on Snick (Saturday Night Nick)? Because if so, we are totally bosom friends (a la Anne & Diana). And even if you didn’t, that’s okay, too. We can still be bosom friends. But only because you’re so awesome. Hee hee hee. 🙂

Anyhoo…this sounds like a very interesting idea. I would be ALL for the 90s Teenage Girl Version of TGIFridays. Can you imagine how AWESOME that would be?!?!
