Favorites: Spicy, tangy, fresh, comfort food, hot from the oven.

Least favorite: Plate (as in "plate the food.") Why can't they just say "arrange the food on the plate," or "glop it on?" (just kidding about the last one!)

do not like smidgen, or pinch or handfull because it varies so much you cannot use it as a measurement.

Love saute, because I can imagine the taste and the sound.
