Beans, Beans, the Magical Fruit

The sort of secret blog of Beans, a.k.a. Jules, a.k.a. "Legs for Miles" a.k.a. "Rackie the Boob Queen." Fine, ok, not the last two. Starting July 2006, sometimes "Mike," aka "fagadoccio," is a co-poster on the blog. The co-poster child, really.

Live Blogging the Food Network: Rachel Ray

OK, alright. It's easy to beat up on someone who's had a ton of success. The idea of a 30-minute meal? Doable. Easy. Digestible. Smart. So let's see this show through eyes that are not, at least initially, filled with scorn.

Pros: The concept. ... The kitche-- the kitchen's ok. In today's episode she's making Mac n' Cheese and sauteed chicken thighs. What's wrong with that? Mothers everywhere coud make that for their little ones, I guess.

Cons: I can't say exactly what it is that's so terrifying. Is it that she's so fucking perky it feels like she wants to stab you in the eyes? Is it the cutesy nicknames for everything (EVOO, GB, etc.)? Is it the apish giggle used to dull the afterpain of inane comments ("I love these li'l squirt bottles! [apish giggle]")? Is it the food itself, basically blameless but never very appealing? Hm.

I don't know what to say. She's just trying to be wholesome and helpful, right?

This IS the face of "what's wrong with food today." What a dumbass. Y'know what we professional chefs call "evoo?" We call it.... "olive..... oil." Life is so much less cutesy than on the food network. This chick should be publicly smacked to (at least) death for what she's done to my profession. Rachael Ray..;. what a putz.
