Let me just get the ball rolling with two which I dislike for the same reason:
Maybe it's my inner (and/or outer) aging curmodgeon, but I am not a child and you are not my mommy.
Phrases and Cliches:
Here are three, just for starters:
(1) A little...
You hear this on TV cooking shows. "A little" has become the food equivalent of the teenager's "like." If asked what's in your pesto just say "basil, salt, olive oil, parmesan, pine nuts and garlic." You don't have to be all like "a little basil," and "a little garlic." It's awkward, hackneyed, and has become meaningless.
(2) ...meltingly tender
Food reviewers killed this one. Makes me homicidal.
(3) Adds (or just for, or...) ...a little crunch
I'm not sure which Food Network personality is the biggest offender -- not only with "crunch" but in combination with "a little." It's either Michael Symon or Sandra Lee. It further irritates me to use their names in the same sentence.
And you? Which shibboleths get your teeth grating?
