I am pretty sure she would be content never cook or even "assemble" her food again. I honestly cannot believe I used to think highly of her blog, was I blind? I was totally shocked, actually, that her fridge was so bare, I don't even get the point?!?

In defense of those who did, it really was normalish 3-4 years ago. I actually found it googling random terms for chocolate oatmeal PB cookies the Gramcat made and I lost the recipe to. That should have been the first sign. I really didn't think anything of her except that she ate a shit load of oatmeal.

I never read the comments so didn't realize how unhelpful she was. The first time I was like, "This chick is pretentious." was when I came across the comments for the first time and she was just NOT helpful to someone who seemed like they really didn't understand what she was saying.

Smug Life Fo'evah!

I'm technically a "foodie" by that definition and I absolutely hate that term and would never call myself that. However, someone who never actually cooks, only eats gastropub/new American food and doesn't even cook with one of the major flavoring agents (onions) is most certainly NOT a foodie.

But fish with Marcona almonds and vegetable puree is such a wacky culinary adventure!

That falls under the New American category. :P

But it is so exotic on her palate! Do not criticize the palate.

I had the Rockfish with all kinds of strange things – marcana almonds, eggplant puree (the layer of black), “sea beans” (whatever those are) and pattypan squash (I think?). Fennel on top!

 

ugh. you can watch iron chef america and know what sea beans are.

Is it just me, or do all her recipes seem to be really lacking in seasoning? She basically only uses salt + pepper, maybe throwing in some garlic or lemon juice so it's not completely bland. 

I think this is pretty much demonstrated in the fact that she said Math put Sriracha all over his chickpea-millet salad. A good cook seasons so that no one should have to douse your food in salt or hot sauce.

Truth.  And anyone who spends any amount of time at their LOCAL FARMERS' MARKET knows, for sure, what pattypan squash are.

Those are nasturtium leaves. You are so cute! You made me laugh. Totally edible–they taste peppery.

 

Props to the reader who properly identified the mystery "lilly pads" in Kerfuffle's soup.

What I don't get it is if you are genuinely interested in food and can't identify an ingredient, why not Google it? Or better yet ask the server at the restaurant what kind of leaf the "lily pad" is.  Is it because she is afraid of appearing ignorant? Or is it because she doesn't actually care?

DUH!  There were Marcona almonds in the dish so it is practically an ethnic meal in Kerftoe's eyes.

I read it in that southern "Bless your heart" kind of way, as in "You are [such an idiot].  You made me laugh [at your stupidity]!"  

I'm probably giving the commenter too much credit though!
