This sounds like Cincinnati-style chili. It's interesting, but -- to this Okie, anyway -- a little weird. It's always served on spaghetti, for one thing, and the chili must contain cinnamon.

My own pet peeve is chicken breasts on salads -- particularly when the menu doesn't tell you they're going to be there. A salad is vegetables. If you want to put chicken, or shrimps, or ham hocks on it, at least warn your customers.

OK, this is only for fine dining...but I HATE the trend of arranging my food into little vertical towers. I mean, it might look kinda cool for a second, but it's usually totally impratical to eat. You have to knock the tower over in order to get a bite.

Ditto on the huge plates / small food thing.

This is a great thread!! I hate (read HATE) cupcakes..they are always dry and the frosting tastes like it has a vegetable shortening base. And I hate it when an otherwise decent restaurant puts whipped cream and a cherry on my creme brulee...what the hell is that about??? Or when a really crappy place tries to say that vanilla pudding with burnt sugar on top IS creme brulee and the waiter argues that it's not (pudding)!! UGH!!

YES!!! I can't stand those multi-colored pieces of plastic all over a perfectly delicious baked good. Unfortunately they were all over the edges of the chocolate birthday cake my husband bought me this year Of course I didn't say anything and I ate it anyway but *sigh* sprinkles dimmed my joy.

Cincinnati chili isn't always served over spaghetti. That's just one way we do it. Sometimes we put it over hot dogs and add cheese. We eat it on its own topped with cheese (crackers and/or onions and/or beans etc).

It has chocolate in it too. But.....that isn't that strange when you consider how chocolate was originally prepared.

Did you grow up on the east coast? People here, I notice, call them jimmies. But out west I grew up knowing them as sprinkles.

I've always adored cupcakes since the days of birthday treats being brought into school. [Grew up in the generation that allowed homemade school treats and ones that weren't healthy. Poor kids today.]

However, I do hate "caramel" apples with so much crap on them that they need a chisel to eat. Look yummy. Totally impractical. Sort of like metallic, beaded 4" stilettos on a sightseeing walking trip. Hard to enjoy the good stuff if you're annoyed.

I think a good apple needs very little to make it shine, so to speak. What's wrong with simple food?

Ditto. And I'll add I hate it when you order a dinner salad and it comes with bacon bits and hardboiled egg on it. Shouldn't that be called a breakfast salad

one food trend I'm tired of is foam.
I don't just want the flavor and air - I want the real thing.

I'm also sick of towers of mismatched food. If I want to play with my food that's my business. It shouldn't be the chef's too.

I agree with the dissing of wraps. Where I work we run a residential facility, so we have a food service. When a group has a meeting in our conference room, we peons get informed when the meeting is over and we can come and graze for a while. If all that is left is wraps, I generally pass it by. Even if I'm hungry.

Bostonians, and most New Englanders know them as jimmies. Some other easterners call them jimmies too. I like them all right on ice cream but they don't do much for me on a cake. Or on ham hocks for that matter.

Enough with breakfast sandwiches! I know, I know, it's simply *practical* to shove all your breakfast food between two halves of a biscuit, or two pancakes, or some crap like that, but stop pretending it's an original idea whose limited range of combinations must be exhausted for great justice.

Ranch dressing does NOT make everything taste better, period. Also, this stuff that most people call "ranch" dressing...is BLECH. The only ranch I know of that tastes like anything but watered-down mayonnaise with some parsley in it is Newman's Own, and that's because Paul Newman actually makes some darn good salad dressing.

Stop serving my sandwiches in wrap form. There's only one "wrap" I don't mind--a burrito. Heck, we may as well call wrap sandwiches what they are: burritos with cold cuts and no beans.

I totally agree. On the same note, what's with the oregano fetish?
Why does every DAMN sandwich shop insist on putting oregano all over everything? You tell them 5 times no oregano. You get your sub and its loaded with it. It over powers the whole sandwich. UGH!

For the people who do not like cupcakes. You all are nuts! lol I know there are a lot of crappy cupcake shops out there. The cake tastes like crap and they over compensate by making the icing super sugary. However, there are some places that do it right. When you find one, it is a little piece of heaven.

I agree with the annoying Organic label on everything. People who buy this crap piss me off. Ummm, yeah I eat all organic but I work in a big polluted city and pop my body full of every other chemical I can find. But, yeah I am so healthy because I am organic. Get over yourself!

I agree on the wraps. EWWWW. Why would someone want their cold cuts rolled up in cardboard?

Aww, I actually like Rachel Ray. I watched her Chefography the other day and she seems like a great person.

Buut, I CAN see where she would get annoying realllly fast. She's pretty loud and excited, yeah.

MY favorite is Paula Deen. That woman is so crazy, and I love it. I will go to her restaurant one of these days.

I totally agree. I do like Rachael Ray but the way she talks drives me nuts. The one I really hate is when she calls sandwiches sammies She really is cute and spunky but her invented lingo is annoying to me too.

I must give a shout out to Cincinnati Chili. I am a Jersey girl and live in Florida now. The only reason I know what Cincinnati Chili is that a snowbird, (winter visitor) posted a recipe in the local paper and I tried it.

It is not a traditional red chili. It actually comes out brown since, as mentioned in previous posts, it contains cinnamon and chocolate. It has a rich, unique, delicious flavor. It is served traditionally on top of spagetthi and then you offer toppings. They are warm red kidney beans, chopped white onions and shredded cheddar cheese. That is then called a three way, four way or five way. They also state that the proper way to eat this chili is by cutting through the layers and scooping it all up with fork so you get it all. You don't twirl it like a traditional spaghetti and you don't mix it all in.

I don't think this is meant to be a food snob thing, only a presentation of a traditional recipe. It tastes really good and it does make a bit of difference how you eat it. If anyone wants the recipe I use, PM me.

Sorry to get off track, back to things that irritate.

I am with you on the lingo. You know what is worse than her saying it? Other people saying it. I hate when I talk to an adult and they call a sandwich a sammy or sammich. It's not cute, its baby talk. STOP IT! LOL

Yes, they must use word like 'Grinder' and 'Po Boy'

Ok, I love cupcakes lol. SO much more convenient for serving. had them for my wedding cake and they were delicious and a huge hit.

I agree with the EVOO thing.

And I too call them jimmies.

Ok...now, my irritating things:

What's the deal with EVERY sandwich being toasted or grilled???! Now i actually have to ask Subway NOT to toast my stupid sandwich. I like my bread soft and squishy.

And why is it that we can toss anything in the fridge and/or cabinet together and if we add cream of mushroom soup to it, it's suddenly a casserole??

HA! I hate it that she says that too. And when she says "Sammies" instead of sandwiches. You know she just irritates me. But you know who I love on the food network - Paula Dean. I watch her show with a mixture of disgust, fascination, and hunger.
