today she went on and on about CHIA frosting.  it took until the end of her blabber to realize she meant CHAI.  i can't  believe she is getting published.drool

She only typo-d "chia" once? You're right though – still a twat. Also, three photos would have done nicely rather than 12 nearly identical shots.

Basically what I did is took the Irish foods I know (and love) and put them into a mac and cheese…the bestest mac and cheese. I used mass amounts of sharp Irish cheddar, a little bacon, some kale pesto and um well as you can see, a little potato chip crumble situation baked on top.

 

Because Ireland is famous for its kale pesto. others-221

This is a grown woman. Bestest is not even a word I hear most children saying

I'm beginning to think she just uses a random food word generator for her post titles.

Never fear, hams. If you're ever running low on kitchen staples, Tiegs has some to spare in her panties.
From today's post:

The chili is super easy to make and there is a good chance that you’ll have all the ingredients on hand. It’s mostly just some spices, tomatoes, a little broth, lentils and black beans. I always have these foods in my panty…

 

F**k's sake, Tieghan, one quick read before you hit publish.

So normally I stick to shit show fashion blogs, but I found a recipe of hers I liked then stalked her blog. Then I was like hey, this girl sounds f**king stupid and her cutesy fonts are so irritating…maybe she's on GOMI! So my hunches were right. I read the first five pages and loled to myself. For someone whose site makes so much, she should maybe have better recipe organization. And idk if it's been discussed, but recipes aren't protected by law so she can't get sued for copying a recipe. Makes sense she's copying though because she doesn't come off deep or thoughtful at all. Also, don't think her parents are rich since they're living off her blog it appears. Not sure if that's been said but those are my two cents!

Okay I'm back because I've thought about this more. I think half baked harvest has popularity partially because of her use of vegetables/fresh items and foodie sounding food. Mostly when you go to food blogs it's the same old carbs smothered in cheese and other really bland, sad American diet food. It's also hard to find recipes that sound "foodie" ish, at least I've had issues with it. You know, those creative combinations you see at trendy farm to table restaurants and the like. Not many food blogs I've come across appeal to that food type. And my brother's Egyptian girlfriend always says her biggest gripe with American food is that people don't use or know how to cook vegetables. Dang, she can do some amazing stuff with vegetables and I think people are looking for ways to incorporate them in interesting ways. Half baked harvest may be a damn shit show but people are yearning for creative recipes and with her combinations they look at it and think, dang that sounds unique! Not WKing for her, but I think that's why she's popular.

Anyway if anybody knows blogs or websites with recipes for foodie type food or with more fresh ingredients that doesn't involve just throwing 40 random items together, PLEASE let me know! That and the photography are why I was first drawn to her website.

The thing is, I really do like the sound of some of her recipes. But she's so annoying I feel stupid for liking them

I agree. I'n amazed at how simple and often very unhealthy some of the recipes that 'food bloggers' post are. So many ingredients that are basically manufactured junk. I never knew how many uses crescent dough had, or that people regularly cooked with condensed cream-of soup, until I fell down that rabbit hole! There does seem to be a bit more to Teighan's recipes, even if they are often silly for other reasons. 

 

I'd love more quality / fresh (but not necessarily diet) blog recommendations too! Currently I only really read What's Gaby Cookin and I've never made anything of hers.

I recently found this thread after following the Gluten Free Girl forum almost since its inception (check it out if you haven’t seen it before, huge trainwreck with a few interesting parallels to HBH). I’ll read this whole thing but so far, it seems I agree with much of what I’ve seen: blatantly copying others, annoying fonts, overuse of exclamation points, cheesy writing, and strange persona in general. Was she homeschooled? She sort of reminds me of that type of person. Ah well, I’ve found my T-day binge read!

I don't think she was home schooled, but I think she left high school early.  She seems very isolated… her entertaining posts always make me cringe.   Everything is so overdone and contrived.  I can't even imagine the amount of extra food and props she throws away.

Lauren Conrad did her hot toddy kit last christmas.  It was even packaged in exactly the same way.

I know her blog is 99% Pinterest bait so I don’t know why I’m even commenting, but her fondue post from yesterday seems like the pinnacle of Pinterest crap. Why on earth would you have cookies on the same tray as rare steak? What do you do with the unpeeled carrots and whole persimmons? What is the honey for other than making a mess? How do you eat the pomegranate seeds, especially once they’re covered in cheese drips? Though given that the close-up shows she doesn’t have the cheese sauces over a flame, you’re going to have solidified cheese fairly soon. 

I know this is her schtick and she’s successful at it, but it makes me curious about the customer reviews she’ll get when her cookbook is published, unless she manages to come up with more practical but still decadent recipes.

No kidding.  Notice there was no mention or pictures of her actually dipping anything but the bread.  Which is really pretty much the only thing dippable on the board.  I too am curious about the purpose of the honey.  How do her "guests" actually eat any of this stuff without getting most of the cheese/honey on their fingers?
