“Now I know why your mashed potatoes are so much better than mine, Jess. Look at all the butter you put in.”

“I have this image of a TV cooking show competition, where the cameras are following the chefs closely the whole time as they carefully measure and chop. And then, in the last few seconds, one of them just throws a whole stick of butter into it, and the judges glance down to their clipboards and make a quick decision.”
