The Christmas Cake That Killed Christmas

hm, i don't have a house cleaner or nanny, and neither did any of the women in the generations that came before me, and lo and behold, cook and bake they could, and cook and bake they did. perhaps it's simply a question of what is and isn't a priority and in my family cooking and baking always was. not trying to be snarky here, but it's another point of view.

Should I Cut My Steak Like a Brit?

i find it interesting that europeans are being criticized by north americans for shoveling food and not enjoying it. it's like some sort of alternate universe from the one i am aware of.

i was taught the correct (sorry, european) way when i was in kindergarten, so obviously it wasn't so difficult that an entire continent cannot manage it.

chopping up your meat and then eating it in little pieces makes you look like a toddler, that linen napkin lying daintily on your lap notwithstanding.

yes, i know i sound like a judgmental bag, and yes, i really wish i could let it go, but alas, i cannot.

Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes

i remember being shocked when we emigrated to canada and i discovered people put milk in their mashed potatoes. totally flat tasting and lacking that very tang! we also add roasted garlic, then it's just pure polish heaven.
