When I first began commenting on SE, I was worried that I was too much a home cook, not elitist enough, not a chef, not a REAL foodie (whatever that means.) But in the past few years, I've had so many of those stereotypes dispelled.
Have any of yours been dispelled for the better? (Let's make this thread positive!) I always assumed the SE talkers were women and those on Slice were male; not so. And Velveeta---who would've thunk? But the last thread "What's in it anyway?" yielded a "serious" Velveeta recipe by dmcavanagh.
And I never would have thought I'd fall in love with a dog-in-the-kitchen. (Oh that Dumpling!)
What pleasant surprises have you experienced on Serious Eats?
