I have been a bit busy lately, with family stuff, and travels, and catching up with life in general, the blog has been a bit lacking! I will fix that, very shortly.
What I have noticed from taking time out and stepping back, watching TV cookery shows and reading items on-line, is that I have grown weary of certain things.
There are times when I get so tired of clichés on tv shows/magazine recipes/ recipe blogs etc,. It’s just me, I suppose, but am sure you know the sort of thing….. so here are eight of my pet-hates, and wonder if have you any, and, if so, what are they?
- Fresh from the Oven..
- Use Good Olive Oil/Wine/Vanilla Extract …

I forgot about that one Amee 🙂 Thanks for your comment. There’s always “freshly brewed” too, as opposed to brewed last week!
Have to agree with all you have said above!! Quick and Simple or Quick and easy really gets me too!!
Thank you for your comment, David. There are lots more we could think of 🙂
Oh I am sure the next time I watch a show I will notice so many of these ones and more new ones!!
