A Woman of Quality

Honestly, if I read one more recipe calling for "good-quality" chocolate or "good-quality" olive oil or "good-quality" parmesan cheese, I'm going to scream!! For heaven's sake. How snobby is that? If I habitually buy "good-quality" ingredients, then it isn't necessary to tell me; and if I don't, get off my back! I'll use the Great Value brand chocolate chips if I want to! And what's more, I'll enjoy them!

  1. Great Value!? sick. I only use Williams & Sonoma chocolate chips. They're a luxury I can afford.

  3. I just made some cookies with a recipe that incorporated a similar injunction. It always feels a bit condescending--like I'm being told, "Well, if you don't use all these fancy ingredients, it's not my fault if these cookies a total disaster."

  4. Yes! Exactly. And they expect (with your low-quality track record) that they WILL be a disaster.
