Agreed. The cupcake is a terrific vehicle for combining everything people love about pastries. They can be extremely simple and home-spun to exotic and elegant, and are appealing to everyone from children to the elderly. They're also portable and come in handy single servings. I hate cupcakes made with shortening-based frosting, or cupcakes that are merely a vehicle for a giant mound of sugary frosting.

Ironic both cupcakes and Cincinnati chili were mentioned in this thread. I just recently moved here and baked a batch in honor of Cincy's own Skyline Chili. They were chocolate cupcakes with chipotle chili powder, allspice, and cinnamon topped with a cinnamon clove cream cheese frosting. Cincinnati style chili, by the way, is a creation of greek immigrants. Many greek meat dishes (my favorite is pastitsio) contain sweeter spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, and many contain cocoa.



Also, for you cilantro haters, there's a reason behind your hatred. Apparently they have discovered that some people have an enzyme in their saliva that reacts with cilantro and gives it a terrible taste that ranges from soapy to rancid to "a mouth full of nickels". Next time anyone gives you grief about it, lclue them in.

As for my food trend issue, mine aren't really trendy, just more common flavors that shouldn't be. White chocolate-macadamia, and sun-dried tomato. Keep them awaaaaaaaaaay!

I agree. I've been to a couple restaurants that have chili nachos. I thought it was a unique menu item and decided to try them. In all cases, it ruined the nachos.

I prefer ground beef.

I agree with you.

They always charge less for products that contain more.

For instance, my sister uses laundry detergent that contains nothing but soap (no fragrance, no softener, etc) due to allergy reasons. Yet, it costs more. If they don't add softener and fragrance, shouldn't it cost less?

If you're referring to those $300 a pound mushrooms, I agree. They would certainly save a lot of money if they used it a lot less and our menu items would be a lot cheaper.

I've noticed the same thing. At first, I didn't even know what it was. The first time I saw that word was when a local convenience store was selling those little snowman-shaped bottles that were expensive. Since I had a couple extra bucks to spend, I decided to try one. Blah! Tasted horrible. Months later, that word started popping up everywhere else in everything. I still didn't understand what the hell it was... until I saw a movie mention it and someone was eating the actual fruit. From what they described, it sounded good... but tasted awful to me.

Yep... I'm the same. I prefer regular stuff, not diet stuff. Ever go on a low-carb diet and try to find something that low in carbs as dressing or condiments? Well, regular stuff is actually lower in carbs than the "light" and "diet" stuff. Even the light salad dressings have 2 to 3 times more carbs than the regular stuff.

That's why I don't care much anymore for diet stuff. If someone offered me soda and all they had was diet soda, I'd be fine with it... but by personal choice elsewhere, I prefer the regular stuff.

I don't like ANY sprinkles. I'm not very crazy over chocolate. I don't mind a small piece of dark chocolate candy or a chocolate cupcake if someone offered me one, but I won't say... "I want chocolate!" The only way I will accept chocolate is if it's added to vanilla ice cream or served as part of something with caramel or peanut butter. Gotta love those Reese's and Carmello candies!

Cinncinnati Chili is the bomb.
I also dislike Rachael Ray...EVOO extra virgin olive oil...I don't understand the point of using an acronym if you're always going to define it afterward. I've never heard her say just EVOO and I've watched A LOT of Rachael Ray in my 18 years. My Mom is an avid fan, UNFORTUNATELY!

I think the most annoying food trend is food, recipe books and appliances that have the name or picture of a famous chef on them. They just use it to trick people into thinking its going to make their food better or that its higher quality or something. One thing that really comes to mind is all of those sauces by Emril...they taste just like anything Kraft puts out and it's twice the price! Oh, and going back to Rachael Ray...the other day I saw an advertisement for a Rachael Ray garbage bowl and guess what, THIRTY FIVE DOLLARS! I can't believe anyone would be sucked into buying that. Rachael Ray puts a big, green, plastic bowl next to her while she cooks and suddenly green tupperware is all the rage. Ridiculous!

Wow, great informative post, thanks!! That's very interesting about the cilantro thing! Also... pastitsio, omg... that takes me back to holidaying on Corfu on a tight budget and eating pastitsio nearly every day as it was so cheap yet tasty and filling, so we could afford to buy more alcohol each night - happy memories!

ps. your fairy cakes (cupcakes) look fantastic, I love the sound of the flavours in the frosting!

I hate that I have to actually ask for ketchup to go along with my french fries now at the drive thru...

See bakeries put too much stuff on it and then it's horrible! really!
I tried to rep you for the Artie Lange cupcake, but I couldn't.

Yes, I loves me some Artie Lange and one day when I finally try that cupcake I'm sure I'll love that too!

This isn't exactly a peeve, perhaps a mild annoyance, but definitely a trend these days: "whole grain"

It appears to be all the rage now to advertise that your product is made with whole grain, when 9 times out of 10 it only means someone may have walked past it with an eyedropper full of unprocessed wheat, rice, corn, barley or what-have-you. It's tired. It's just like the "low-fat" salad dressings and fat-free cookies that are usually worse for you than the original; just 'cause something may have whole grain in, around, or near it doesn't mean it isn't loaded with hydrogenated oil or 14 pounds of sugar. Enough already.

Reminds me of the old Maine adage: Just because your cat has kittens in the woodstove, it doesn't make them biscuits.

Oh I do have another annoying trend: White chocolate. What the hell is that sh*t about?

Since we've brought up the Food Network-- Sandra Lee needs to be shot. What, exactly, is she "cooking"? Oh, that's right. SHE ISN'T. Opening a can of chemicals and adding one fucking spinach leaf is not cooking.

It's not really a trend since they've been doing it forever, but I hate the way food manufacturers try to fool consumers with the nutritional content labeling. For example, a cup of yogurt will list the calorie content as 100 cals. per serving, which sounds fine until you notice that they've divided the little container into 2.5 servings. It's understandable that larger volume items break down the number of servings, but for a cup of yogurt or a candy bar? Come on!

You know what's even funnier is when they do it on bottled water. Which has nothing in it. No calories, no fat, no vitamins. And it's like "Servings per container: 2"

I don't think Paula Deen is much better than Sandra Lee. She's always uses packaged items as of late as does Rachael Ray (higher end version of SL). I don't watch food network for faux cooks. I watch it for real chefs and meals I'll never make.

I love giant cupcakes and I love cinnamon rolls with too much frosting.

Hey, how come the cupcake phenomenon hasn't made it to Alaska? I'm bummed! Someone send it up here, willya? The only place I've seen them for grown ups is at Starbucks and the two I've had were naaaasty.

Good to know about the whole cilantro thing. I've always HATED it. It tastes like ass, absolutely. Ugh. And they put it on everything, it seems. WTF?

I, too, am tired of wraps. It was fun for about five minutes, but give it a rest. I'd much rather have a sandwich with some really yummy bread. Whole grain, preferably. The real stuff.

Oh, and what the heck is EVOO?

i know we ranted about sandra lee's inability to actually cook...
and she always has a cocktail...

but what about her "tablescapes"???

THOSE BUG THE CRAP OUTA ME.

i mean really... its a cooking show right? no need to tell me about where to find low priced fabric, or how you got cute mini coasters at the dollar store.

she continually upsets me with this. when i cook... the food is the main appeal. not some fake plastic flowers in a damned rain boot. or frigging umbrellas in 5 different colors she insists everyone has in their darned closets.

shes way to excited about pink by the way too. all pink tones. i cant help but want pepto after i glance at her show.


oh yes... and i am sick of energy this and that.
even snickers has a new CHARGED bar. with extra caffeine and ginseng

leave the chocolate alone please.
