Prettiness and Pretension

I found the witty and beautiful blog Smitten Kitchen through this know-it-all blog recommended by Hub. Please go to Smitten Kitchen immediately. She's a winner. As for know-it-all, approach with caution. His book reviews lured me in, but when I started on his food and cooking posts, I was a little turned off. I don't like it when people talk about bread like they talk about business. I don't know what's missing in his discussion, but I feel like it has to do with artistry or sympathy. He undeniably knows his topics (books, baseball, and food), but he's a little too sharp and critical for my taste. I picture him as smoothly shaven, sneering, and paunchy.
