A pinch of salt
Is it just me or do all of the Food Network personalities have an unusual definition of a "pinch" or a "little bit" or even more mathematical precise terms like table- and teaspoon?
It seems like everytime one of them (I'm watching Tyler Florence now) says, "Well, I'm going to add a little olive oil..." And he pours in much more than I would consider "a little". This happens again and again. Geez, he just said, "I'll add a little mayo..." And he put so much mayo on the spoon, it was practically dripping down the sides, falling off.
