How kind of you to point out my error,

It wasn't an error -- just not a unique trait.

 

But I will say the mentions of their land holdings in this thread kinda' paints a picture of people wanting to become landed gentry in America.

Oh...goodness....if this is for me, I totally do not want to become a land baron and I give the Drummonds all their props for doing what they do.  My whole point was that I don't think that Ree would be where she is right now without help money-wise---like paying for her site to come up first when searching for certain food recipes. And, one of her recipes totally failed for me so *shrug*.  To each their own :) .

 

I will bow out of this conversation.

Not at all.  My comments were in response to her two supporters in this thread who didn't address the quality of the show, but rather her stature in the community.

 

Honestly, I've never even seen the show beyond pausing while flipping through channels.  Now I'm more curious.  But, IMHO, her supporters really have not done her a favor here.

Ok.  I get you now.

Thanks :)

I had luck with PW's simple recipes, like her creamed spinach and 7-can soup (you literally open 7 cans and make a soup). But her mushroom tart bags were a fail and reading what she did to beautiful beef tenderloin makes me want to cry.

 

She's not a chef, she's a cook, not even a good one at that, but she makes no secret of it. I guess she's aimed for the allrecipes crowd, which is annoyingly popular with mainstream America.  She's definitely found her niche at, you guessed it, Walmart. Her logo, products and cookbooks are everywhere. I'm guessing because people buy that crap.

 

I never watched her show but I would imagine it would be a complete waste of time. I don't think it takes an hour to learn how to make creamed spinach.

* 7 cans of whatever you want. Don’t drain the cans. Just violently throw them into the pot.
* Some kind of gourmet cheese stirred in at the end. And just a warning: My choice of cheese is a little intimidating in its level of sophistication, so I apologize in advance.

Not.

 

Wait, what?

It's actually tasty, in a low-brow, non-haute, middle-America, kind-of-way.

 

I made mine with canned tomatoes, black beans, chili seasoning, corn and pumpkin.Then I heavily topped with cheddar cheese. I just had to try it.

 

It was very.... edible.

That's one way to look at it.  I see it as ranching/farming growing a business.

See I enjoy Guy Fieri cause he showcases interesting food and recipes that spur my creativity.

I like Martha Stewart cause its easy to watch and nothing annoys me. I own none of her books or merch, I just enjoy watching her and I loved her spots on Letterman and Conan (esp when she drank a Colt 45 and Taco Bell Burrito) and love her love of Gangsta Rap.

 

I am not interested in ppl like Ree or Rachel Ray, how many burgers can one eat? Ill bet neither knows any food history etc.

Ree and Rachel are like Fallon, Martha and Vivian Howard are Letterman

 

Ree and Rachel exist to feed the average American Family who knows no better. Ive cause Rachel in the past, making false statements about recipes and ingredients.

 

Im having the same issues with YouTube cooks, recently I unsubed 2 Indian youtube cooks, cause I had had enough of their stupidity and ignorance in cooking. When you are using a spatula in high heat and it is literally BLACK from being burnt in hot oil, you know bad estrogens are seeping out into your food, and the reason your cakes are flat is because you mix the baking powder with the wet ingredients and stir and let sit while you mix the dry and prepare the pan...SMH There is an American Im about to unsub cause she mispronounces things and all her actual cooking is fairly bad, and she is pretty unknowledgable too.

 

Well Ive said a lot, or too much

 

You do know there are blogs and web boards dedicated to HATE watching cooking shows right? Its snarktastic fun.
