If you follow me on instagram you may have noticed my bold statement earlier in the week, involving chimichurri sauce and pesto, and how the former can defeat the ass of the latter any day of the week. I love making factual-esque statements about things that are actually entirely subjective. However, I concede that condiments really are in the eye of the beholder. Or something.
When you’re a true everything bagel aficionado, the bagel is not enough! Whip up a batch of this everything bagel sprinkle and get your fix at any time- the possibilities are endless.
Generally, I don’t give much attention to trending foods. It’s not because great ideas can’t be trending ideas, or that they become less great as they reach a wider audience- I’m not entirely sure. I think part of it is that there isn’t much room for creativity, and when I make something that I know has already been done before it precludes me from enjoying the self-satisfaction that results from introducing something totally unique and 100% mine. And honestly, the ubiquity and novelty just gets old after a while. Take the bacon trend, for instance. Bacon is one of the most outstanding and magical foods known to mankind, and yet, now when I see it haphazardly thrown into a perfectly good dessert just for the hell of it, I audibly groan. “Chocolate chip cookies… with BACON!” “Cinnamon rolls… with BACON!” “Pecan pie… with BACON!” I’m sure all of these recipes are delicious, but… it’s gimmicky, ya know?
