"What I tell you three times is true."
"Megan McArdle is a New York native who, while working at Ground Zero, started writing Live from the WTC, a blog focused on economics, business, and cooking."Megan McArdle has never "focused on cooking" in her life.
But--but--she won a blogginheads cooking contest! In New York!
If that mac and cheese recipe truly won a contest other than "worst recipe ever," I pledge to actually make and eat it. It will be painful, but I will concede.
You would choke on all that fat. I looked it up--3/4 c. butter2 c. milk2 c. creamover 2 and 1/2 lb. cheeseI love heavy dishes like fettucini alfredo, but that just looks nasty.
Is that the recipe where she explained to her readers what fresh ground pepper was? That gave me a laugh. Thanks, Megan. Now please instruct us on how to boil water again. That part always confuses me.She makes Sandra Lee look like Julia Child.
Doesn't she put sour cream in it as well?
I finally went to her archives to check it out. It calls for 1-2 cups of heavy cream (?), or 1 cup of cream and "1 small container of sour cream" (how small?). This is on top of two cups of whole milk, the aforementioned 2/12 lbs of cheese, along with the Kraft singles. To go along with one pound of pasta. That recipe is absurd.At least I learned that I can use my food processor to grate cheese and that if I don't have one, I can do it with a hand grater. I never would have thought of that on my lonesome. [rolling eyes]
Remember this thread? Gold in the comments.
Oh, I remember that post. Those were halycon days, days of innocence when I could still be incredulous about her writing. The comments are hysterical.
God, Oh God!, why can't you bring back the days of Megan's recipe blogging? Please, if--God--you exist, prove your existence by having Megan blog about recipes again. Please, God, I beg of you.
She hit the ground running. Her first answer is a mass of non-responsive confusion, capped by utter bullshit numbers.
Loads of BS, bad faith, illogic--in other words, her usual.
Lady Lucy - I kind of miss the recipe blogging as well, if only because she was so damn cluelessly awful. Did she really think that none of her readers were knowledgeable enough about cooking to notice that she didn't have the foggiest idea what she was typing?My favorite is the time she instructed us to make mashed potatoes by boiling the raw potatoes in milk or cream.
It wasn't a statistic--it was a hypothetical. Gaaaaaaaaahhhhh!
Good question, huh?
Rats! She took a wedding question and ran away.
And she didn't answer my follow up question--if her entire arguent is that stat (which she said it is) and her stat is hypothetical, isn't her entire argument hypothetical?
