This is a venting thread.
In my household, I am the cook. ...
Rachael doesn't, either. She has said throughout her career that she's a cook and not a chef. I learned a lot from her when I was learning how to cook close to 20 years ago (late bloomer here [emoji257]). She starts with whole ingredients, for the most part, and her food is well-seasoned. I still use some of her recipes.Try Rachel Ray. That is painful. Sandra at least doesn't pretend to be a big Chef.
Ginny, I know how to cook, but sometimes I make those kind of grilled cheese sandwiches! I call it Cheater Grilled Cheese and would make them when we were trying to cut back on calories from fat... and I was trying to get out of actually grilling the sandwich. I like holding the non-buttered bread better, so now I use my Cuisinart Griddler if I want unbuttered bread.

That's what I'm talking about. I had surgery years ago that required a six-week recovery at home and I discovered the Food Network and Rachael Ray. My mother didn't teach me much about cooking - it's not something she enjoys. So I learned a lot from those "30-Minute Meals" shows.I'm not a big fan of Rachael's, either, but I will say I liked her in the early years - those "30 minute" shows.
Knives! I can't stand watching inept knife use. I cringe and wait for the knife to flop onto it's side mid stroke or fingers to be extended into the path of the sharp edge and blood to flow.
I further shiver at the site of dull knives being used because of the additional force needed to cut. That extra force translates to deeper cuts and more blood.
