daily noms: the very first

Posted by aleta under daily noms

The more dedicated readership of Omnomicon may have noticed a marked lack of update for Wednesday. Perhaps they are thinking to themselves that I am a total friggin liar because right there on the sidebar, just under Ad City, is a little blurb assuring passers-by that I faithfully update on Wednesdays, and between last week wherein I updated on THURSDAY and this week wherein I failed to update AT ALL, I have not upheld this informal agreement. But I’m pretty sure that most of you are only just now thinking to yourselves “huh, I guess she didn’t update this week,” so hopefully I haven’t let anyone down.

I’ll get candid for a moment here. I’m pretty psyched that there are lots of you who come back every week and leave comments telling me that you’ve made a bunch of my recipes. You guys. That’s pretty much the coolest thing ever. That’s one of my regrettable catch-phrases, but here I mean it. Six months ago, all I wanted to get out of this site was a few people I didn’t know in person to come by more than once.

I’ve received some requests for more frequent updates, but unfortunately between my real-life full-time job (which I love very much and has nothing to do with food at all), and the two thousand-word posts a week that take me no less than 10 hrs apiece to produce, adding three more such posts is simply undoable. As it is, I’m up til 2am at least three nights a week trying to perfect half-batches of cupcakes, find the most artistic angle on that batch of ingredients, and sifting through vintage cookbooks for interesting ideas. Nevermind the fact that I can no longer make plans on Saturday or Sunday til after 2pm because THE LIGHT, what if I run out of LIGHT while we’re out at brunch? Plus, I am literally incapable of producing posts of a lesser quality, owing to some kind of Type A personality disorder, but I think I have a compromise.

How about daily photos? I can never use every photo I want in a post, and while I have no problem fail-blogging, sometimes there just isn’t enough to say about that thing that didn’t work out, leaving me with 10 lovely but orphaned pictures. Think of them as out-takes, bloopers and previews. How about every weekday?

To kick things off, here’s a picture, and a quick question for those of you who keep coming back. I’m not trying to fish for compliments (I already know I’m pretty great, thanks), but I’d like get an idea of why do you keep coming back? Your response doesn’t need to be a 300-word essay, but if you tell me what you like, or even would like to see, I can work on more of that. And then everyone wins.

enjoy lentils.

Thanks, guys. You are the best internet-friends a gal could ask for!

  1. Pearl Said,

    i keep coming back because you’re funny, honest, adorable and have awesome recipes. and it doesn’t matter how much you post – i will always come back πŸ˜€

  2. Kimberly Said,

    I keep coming back because I think you’re hysterical, and you make me want to cook more for my teeny little family consisting of me, my husband and my 16 month old who would eat a wooden train if I put it in front of him on a fork.

  3. Apollo Said,

    Well I don’t think I could say it much better than Pearl did.

  4. Kristin Said,

    Well, I started reading because of the name of your blog :D, but I keep coming back because the recipes are fun and I’m looking forward to more RRR!

  5. Amy I. Said,

    1. Wittiness 2. Kick-ass photos 3. Inspiration: if you can have a blog this awesome, maybe someday I can too.

    Don’t drive yourself nuts over posting more, k? I do like the photo idea though, it’d be relatively easy for you and eye candy for us.

  6. Dixie Said,

    I come back because I like your writing style, your pictures are pretty, and you talk about things I’m interested in. I’ve only made a few of the recipes (I am one of what I assume is a horde of people who showed up for the rainbow cake and stayed for the muffins), but I’ve enjoyed every entry.

    Or, put another way, you somehow manage to keep me interested in even the things I’m not interested in doing or making.

  7. Val Said,

    I keep coming back because your recipes are creative and great, and you have a nice bit of that New England charm that I love so much. Yeah, I said it. :)

  8. Mara @ What's For Dinner? Said,

    I love love love your site!!!!!!

  9. Esi Said,

    I come back for your words, photos, and amazing recipes. No matter how often you post, I’ll keep reading :)

  10. Leslie Said,

    I found via another blog because of your rainbow cake creation. I went back through your old posts and thought they were full of spark and personality. I love the step-by-step breakdown of how you make everything. It is more fun to visit your website than any cookbook hands down. Now, I admit I use a RSS feed, so I don’t pay attention to a lack of posts. I am just happy to see a new post. Daily photos would rock, even if they don’t come along with the recipe. :)

  11. Morgan Said,

    Like the poster above, I found your blog via the Rainbow Cake. I’ve showed it to a lot of friends, and they’re all as addicted as I am. I love the pictures and the recipes, but one of the parts that keeps me coming back is your writing. Your posts are always entertaining! Daily pictures would be lovely, but I’m fine with only a couple posts a week like you have it now. It’s something to look forward to each week!

  12. stephchows Said,

    You are freakin hilarious. I love reading about your adventures. You have totally fun recipes that think outside of the normal every day. Your photos are amazing. I’d love to read more but totally understand the time commitment. I’ll keep coming back no matter how much you post :) I mean that’s what google reader is for, lets you know when you update so I can go see! πŸ˜€

  13. Amelie Said,

    Yup, showed up for the rainbow cake too. I keep coming because first your pictures created a total food-porn addiction in me; second because I love that you don’t just post a recipe, you also tell us every details about the process, and finally because I don’t feel like I’m reading a recipe book but more like i’m chatting with my friend on the phone saying ‘hey you have to try this (or not!!)’
    I suggest you don’t change anything to your formula… Don’t be a victim of your success πŸ˜‰ If it’s not broken, don’t fix it!..I’d be sad if your articles were shorter because you spent more time on daily pictures…

  14. Macy Said,

    I also found you via the Rainbow Cake. I read quite a few of your past entries and decided to subscribe via RSS. I come back because your blog is interesting, vibrant, and full of witty/sarcastic loveliness.

  15. sarah Said,

    you’re a funny, sassy B(itch). Keep it salty.

  16. Uma Said,

    I too found you b/c of the rainbow cake (which I made: http://gastrofabulous.blogspot.com/2009/04/rainbow-cake.html – hey – I had to toot my own horn!) and found your responses to all the negative comments hysterical – I mean it – I couldn’t stop laughing at the comments ppl must have made at you and how honest / real your comments back were! I come back (well I cheat, my RSS reader comes back for me…) because I’m opening to finding new recipes and was impressed by how thorough your review of where to get spices was (that was about when I first found you).

  17. Kate Said,

    Like those before me, I found you via the rainbow cake entry – which I actually made into rainbow cupcakes for my little sister’s birthday treat to take to school. I keep coming back because you’re freaking funny. And I’m pretty sure that if we lived in the same vicinity, I would hope that we’d be friends. I even put you on my blogroll so that my friends enjoy your blog as much as I do. You have really fun recipes and you present it in a really fun, quirky fashion.

  18. Steve Said,

    I’m a total sucker for your witty charm. In the recent lull of posting I have read your past entries two or three times over because they never stop being entertaining.

    The pictures thing is a good idea, it will feed the hungry internet masses as well as provide photographic evidence of just what can go wrong when you think everything will be alright.

  19. Leah Kleylein Said,

    I’ll keep coming back no matter how often you post! You are a great writer, easy to read, and so funny! You have inspired me, a total non-entity in the kitchen, to actually expand my horizons a bit!! I keep you in my google reader, so I’ll know when you have a new posting, no pressure.

  20. pockafwye Said,

    I also first got here by way of the rainbow cake.

    I keep coming back for most of the same reasons folks have mentioned above. Your writing is intelligent and entertaining, your sense of humor is delightful, and the “voice” you write with is “real” – like a friend describing events to another friend. Your photos are beautiful. I’d come back for those alone.

    Plus, you somehow almost always choose to post about foods that are things I’d actually want to cook and eat (or make my Mister cook – he’s the baker here). Google Reader brings your entries to me when they go live, so I don’t miss your posts, regardless of your timing. But I do wander off the reader to your blog page periodically, to check the categories list, etc.

    Oh, and who can’t resist a word like “Omnomicon”?

  21. edd Said,

    I come back because one time you offered to make and send me cookies, which goes a long way in my book. Also, the pictures are purty, and you aren’t Delia Smith and don’t me feel i am in home economics class, which always end in trying to set fire to someone’s notes or cooking something half decent and not beinog able to eat it because you haven’t payed your 3 quid subscription that term and they are only going to bin it later on so why not just give it to me? It’s literally nothing like that. And, it seems like you actually like the idea of other people making this stuff, rather than it all being an ego-wank-project for your good self.
    So. That’s that.

  22. Mary Said,

    I love the unique recipes and great pictures all the time! I think its fun to be able to do things step by step and compare what I’m doing to what you did. The pictures are always really beautiful too!

  23. Emelie Said,

    I keep coming back because you’re so damn realistic! I could see myself saying some of the exact things you do when you post – “shit, gotta take those outta the oven!!”… it’s refreshing to hear something a little different than your regular, run-of-the mill “grease your pan, mix the batter, bake, cool”

    keep it up girl!

  24. Bertha Said,

    I come back because I love food, I love your photography of said food, and I love the way you write about the heretofore mentioned food. I also love that you’re local (I’m on the north shore) and seriously, omnomicom? You had me at nom.

  25. Atrian Said,

    I come back because I love food, pretty food pictures make me happy, you have awesome recipes, and the blog name is kickass.

  26. ivy Said,

    Well, everyone has basically said it all. Like I had commented before, I didn’t cook till I found your blog. All my friends at work think it’s great when I bring in something for them to try and they say “Oh, is that off that blog?” My husband probably is starting to think i’m nuts because I say “Aleta said this, Aleta showed me that”, like we are long time friends. Keep up the good work. No pressure!

  27. Lily Said,

    Dear Aleta,
    I absolutely love your site! The photography is beautiful, the instructions are clear and understandable, and you seem like someone I would like and hang out with in real life. I am a terrible cook with big dreams, and your site makes me smile. Keep up the good work, you rock!

  28. Stephanie Wagner Said,

    I keep coming back because the recipes are fun and the pictures and writing awesome! Showing us your bloppers might give the rest of us some hope…Thanks for sharing!

  29. Erin Said,

    I come back because of your beautiful pictures and nomable recipes. Plus, you’re friggin hilarious πŸ˜€

  30. Nick Said,

    You write awesome posts with kick-ass recipes and photos. Don’t compromise that just to make something every day.

    Give yourself a break!

  31. Rose Said,

    I keep coming back because you keep teaching me things. Your entries are always fun to read (though I was a bit horrified about naming your lobsters and then ripping their appendages off – though I understand that this might have been done in an appreciation of your food, etc.) and I love love love the vibrant photos and funny captions.

  32. Nicolas Said,

    I come back because of the photography and the way you write. So witty and fun. Also because of the name mostly teehee

  33. bill Said,

    <3 witty commentary, beautiful pictures, great recipes, and unique/weird ideas and techniques.

    Found your blog via publicity your rainbow cake got (which I made with great success, everyone loved it) and have been a fan of your crazy shenanigans since.

  34. Jess Tryon Said,

    Sounds like my reasons are popular. I adore food, and your writing style is fun and you keep it real. And your photography rocks. Keeps me coming back.

  35. ChemicalDependence Said,

    I found you when my roommate linked me to your rainbow cake. (We’ve now made 3…) I used to read a different blog that was sometimes about food and is now defunct, but I’m hooked to this and so is half my household. Your pictures are fabulous, there are just the right amt per entry. Not inundated with pics, but also not an overwhelming volume of words. We, like Ivy, also talk about you in my house like you are a long-time friend. “Mmm did you see what Aleta made this week? Looks delish…” I love how you blog about the fumbles in addition to the wins. Obvi, there is the hilarity factor, but I love the witty, sass and blunt honesty even more. In my book, you win the coveted title of “down-ass bitch.”

  36. Max Johnson Said,

    I was drawn in by the rainbow cake pictures, then delighted by the name of the site, then charmed by the amazing wit and candor in your writing. I was going to write more, but everyone before me has covered it. πŸ˜€

    Thank you for all the time and effort you put into every post.

    P.S. This is the first RSS feed I have EVER subscribed to. Yes, you are just that awesome.

  37. Kelsey Said,

    I keep coming back to your blog because I love your recipes, your blogging style, and your sense of humor. πŸ˜‰ Your artsy pics of food are fun to look at too. Keep up the amazing work!

  38. Karen Said,

    Me, personaly, i keep coming back because of your style of writing and candidness. your style is very simiilar to some friends i had to leave behind when i moved south and they stayed north. and i love that you tell your downs as much as ups. its incouraging. so great food and fun personality do it for me.

  39. Robyn Said,

    I was told to come here by my friend Raych because we both lurvvvvvvvvvv omming and nomming things and we both also lurv creating things to om and nom. I won’t lie, at first I was merely attracted by the catch phrase (“Say it with me now, ‘om nom nom'”) and the pretty colours, and then I was all ‘oooh, pictures!’ but then I actually READ the blog and I was hooked. I love your writing style and your sense of humor! Keep it up!

  40. telis Said,

    I keep coming back because your blog is entertaining and educational — double-whammy of excellent. Also, it doesn’t overwhelm my Google Reader because you don’t update with terrifying frequency. It’s a nice break from the normal super high energy grind of science-fashion-popculture-politics reading that I feel like I HAVE to keep up with. This is my first time commenting, but I figured since you asked so nicely I’d oblige. πŸ˜‰

  41. Cat C Said,

    I keep coming back because I’m hoping to see you do a recipe for a flaky pastry sometime *wink* And the Lovecraftian blog title sets my little Irish heart a-flutter. I miss you! :0D

  42. Trixt Said,

    Amazing photos, witty commentary and fantastic accessible recipes :)

  43. Steph Said,

    Why? Because you are hilarious, the pictures are beautiful and it feels like awkward kindred spirit due to the fact that I actually say “nom nom nom” all the time.

  44. nat Said,

    you’re funny and i love your photos.

  45. Jurlique Said,

    I love the whacky humour in your writing and of course the kick-ass photography, which makes the blog one heck of an entertainment site for me!

    I first saw your blog when a friend shared the url where you made rainbow cakes and since then I was hooked. πŸ˜€ No other mags can produce the stuff you do. <3

  46. Vera Said,

    Wackiness! great photos and recipes! :) I don’t even know how i got here, but i love this website and i check it regularly. Greetings from Peru!

  47. tori Said,

    pictures so great i want to eat my laptop

  48. HelΓ©na Said,

    lol! Tori!
    I love your pictures – what camera do you use?
    and your recipes are very clear and easy to follow,
    I also like the way you photograph the ingredients up front

    what is your day job? :d

  49. Snead Said,

    The photos, the creativity, the inspiration.

    Keep it up!

  50. jen Said,

    I like your blog because… I dunno. I just like it. :o)

  51. Joey Said,

    When I just started my blog, you took the time to read mine and comment. That made my day. I repay my debt to you with an addiction to your blog because the food looks good, your pictures look good, and you look good. (There. I said it.)

    Keep it up!

  52. Michelle Said,

    I come back because I love creativity and food. I only started my cooking journey a few years ago, so everyone who cooks is an inspiration.

  53. Kat Said,

    I love your tongue in cheek way of narrating, the incredible artistic value of your photos, and how much you love food! I’m a full time student and I check faithfully twice a week and most of the time come more often because it is a beautiful break from papers and projects! Keep up the good work but take care of you! Oh and I made Pho after your post and it was wonderful! I hadn’t eaten it since I moved from Minneapolis a few years back, THANKS!

  54. Cait Said,

    I found your website through a link to your awesome rainbow cake, though i don’t remember how i found the link. loved that article, loved your photos. so i sifted through some more entries and i thought to myself, “Self, these recipes are really good, easy to make vegetarian, and not weird!”
    Thus, you were a keeper.

    i also really enjoy the way you word your entries. you write like i talk. :)
    and i like to laugh with you at your fumbles. it’s refreshing to have an entry about how “such and such didn’t work and here’s why so don’t do as i do!”
    your photos are really well composed too. as a quasi-photo student, i can really appreciate someone that know how to adjust the white balance on a camera so your lovely meringue doesn’t end up looking stale and yellow from the light. happens too often in blogs.

    <3!

  55. Domachie Said,

    The sens of humor. The way of writing. The decadent recipes. The step-by-step pictures. The fun I get reading it all and do some of them :)

  56. Liene Said,

    hmm…i think i keep coming back because once in some blog or website i read abot your rainbow cake…i loved the photos of that and i think that the very best thing is the artisctic photos you make….and how the food looks like in them. it really makes me want to eat my computer screen sometimes:D i think thats because i am not a cook (i am just 17 year old)….but i really like the recipes and someday i will try them out:)

  57. SΓ©b Said,

    I keep coming back because you post great material. I would much rather have a few great posts than a lot of good post.

    Keep up the great work.

  58. Mu Said,

    Love the photos and your sense of humor! Keep it up!

  59. Ezra Said,

    I come back for your writing, and your kick ass appreciation for food. You aren’t pretentious or snobby, but you know the good stuff.

  60. Alvin Said,

    I liked the picture of you in an apron. Where has it gone? =(

  61. Kellen Said,

    I come back because you have a good personality, you take WONDERFUL pictures (I found your flickr before your website) and the recipes are fun to make!

  62. OMGTSN Said,

    I enjoy your recipes. I make them every chance I get. PLEASE keep posting!

  63. Jessica Said,

    This is my favorite food blog! I love your writing style. If I had a food blog this is how I would like to think I would write it, too.

  64. Meg Said,

    I also found Omnomicon because of the RAINBOW CAKE!!!!!
    And now I continue to read it because it is hilarious and I love your pictures. I don’t have an oven and even if I did I don’t know how to cook anyways, but I’m always hungry and (living in a dorm) I am especially always hungry for some home-grown cookin’. So Omnomicon gives me the little fix I need.
    My favorite thing to ask my friends:
    “Hey, do you like food??”
    “…Yes?”
    “Okay do you also like blogs??”
    (To which the answer varies between indifference and appreciation)
    “Great, then go to this website!”

  65. Varya Said,

    I find that most food blogs are either pretentious or unreal or (worst of all) unattractive in both content and/or presentation. you are neither. beautiful and interesting and inspiring and TASTY.
    thank you. always.

  66. Elisabeth Said,

    I must have found you right around the same time as Ulma, because I know I thought that the spice-buying post was the most awesome thing EVER. It is just me and my husband here and the idea of buying a whole cannister (sometimes a whole expensive cannister) of spice for the two of us to try a recipe that may or may not become a standard in our house is enough to put me off of trying some more challenging things. But that post really helped. So I promptly lost an entire delightful Sunday afternoon in your archives.

    Things I like: The pictures, the humor, and the helpful way you often say “don’t do this, because I already did it that way and it didn’t work … you’re welcome!” It really helps to know what improv moves will enhance a recipe and which will bring epic fail.

    Thanks so much for having a real food blog for real people. And 10 hours for a post? Wow, that’s all I can say, just wow. It makes me appreciate every word even more.

  67. Rissie Said,

    1. Beautiful photos
    2. Inspiring recipes
    3. Hilarious commentary

    Please keep writing. Thanks!

  68. Adagio Said,

    I come back every week because you are family and I feel obligated.

    HAHA! Just kidding. It’s nostalgic and reminds me of family dinners/breakfasts. Remember when you threw a huge wad of oatmeal at me? Yeah, that’s the feeling I get everytime I visit (except it makes me feel warm and fuzzy all over, not just on my cheek).

  69. Jessica Said,

    I too found your website through another one showing the rainbow cake! I love to cook – and am always trying to come up with new and exciting ideas. Like clothing, vintage is always cool! I enjoy your writing, pictures and your “realness” (if that’s a word!). Even when something doesn’t go right – you share anyway! Keep up the great work!

  70. LadyGlutter Said,

    Since you asked, I’m a long time lurker first time commenter. I’m not a huge foody, so coming back to your website is a pretty big deal for me. You’re not boring or snooty like other food blogs often are. I come back because you’re funny, you post such awesome pictures, and your recipes are lovely!

  71. Kay Said,

    I haven’t made any of your recipes, but I always read each post all the way through, cuz you’re just so darned entertaining! Maybe one day I’ll make something of yours, but for now, your pictures and commentary is really doin’ it for me!

  72. Christine Said,

    I am sucker for your writing style, too. I think I fell completely in love when you referred to yourself as “bitch” in the 3rd person in this post: http://www.omnomicon.com/strawberry-heart-shortcake Thanks for all your hard work. The quality is appreciated!

  73. kimi Said,

    You inspire me to think outside of the box that it would appear I’ve wedged myself into. I also feel encouraged to find the joy in creating something pretty and edible just for the sheer pleasure of doing so.

  74. Paul Irish Said,

    I wanted to offer my opinion as I’ve also been in a similar situation. I’ve run aurgasm for 4.5 years and regularly have gotten requests for more frequent posts. I’ve kept the post volume relatively low (2-ish posts a week) for this whole time, and my traffic has been growing steadily. (now 5-7k visits/day)
    I’ve seen many bloggers that feel pressured to maintain an unsustainable blogging rate and then call it quits after a year or two. You really have to find a good balance. I certainly would not trade more frequent updates if it meant i couldn’t have blogs posts like your Coffee Chicken or Labneh ones. Those are such high quality, they keep you as the only food blog I follow.
    Best of luck.

  75. Mitawa Said,

    Came to you from a link to the rainbow cake from Geekologie.com ^^

    I absolutely love the photos. Something about the way you compose your photography reminds me of simplicity and freshness. I love cooking but the kitchen became a mess and schedules just never seemed to work so we’ve been eating take-out in our house for a month or two now.

    You made me actually force the time into my schedule to clean things up and get functional again.

    Also, the blog has a great name. Who could refuse to come back to a name like that??

  76. Becki Said,

    Because you combine two of my favorite pastimes–cookin’ and swearin’.
    :)

  77. Dustin Said,

    Yep. I’m coming in a little late on this one with nothing new to add.

    Omnomicon is pretty much the perfect storm. You have gorgeous photos and witty banter and enough hilarious LOL-inducing swearing and mishaps that keep me coming back to the site when I’m at work, reading when I should be working. The frank and unabashed “behind-the-scenes” looks at your flops and process are very comforting. (Take THAT, Food Network and your carefully-crafted presentations!)

    When I’m actually in the grocery store wondering what I’ll cook for dinner? Yup, I find myself leaned up against the endcap with my kindle, going through old post titles for inspiration. Because in addition to being an enjoyable read and a lovable “character” you’re also a damn fine cook with tastes compatible with mine on the ingredient-, preparation-, gadget-, and healthiness-scales.

    And I really love the photography, as art and as an instruction method. I’m looking forward to more kitchen pictures, because you have a great eye for lighting and style and they’re purty!

    So, yeah. Duh, girl: keep up the good (tasty, practical, beautiful, snarky, funny) work. I’m okay with fewer posts, too. :-)

  78. Janni Said,

    My son recommended your blog because I mentioned I can’t get buttermilk in Mexico where I live, which was a surprise to me because I didn’t even know my son liked to cook (it was a surprise to him too apparently, even though there were hints of this between ages 5 & 8) and then I found the famous Rainbow Cake from reading all these comments and will try it because we liked Mama Zuma’s Red Hot Gams and the Surf and Turf Macaroni even though I haven’t had time to try the buttermilk recipe, which sort of sums up why i keep coming back: it’s the recipes…with a dash of wit and charm and good photos to boot, but I don’t get here every week myself due to being busy, so a lite posting schedule is fine and thanks for the inspiration!

  79. employedhipster Said,

    I got here via the rainbow cake page and was immediately hooked! You’re fantastically funny and your recipes are easy to follow. I wish I could have you and your mancessory over for noms, the wife and I are big dinner party eater folks.

  80. Tara Said,

    I come back for the amazing recipes, the great story telling, and your photos.
    Keep up the awesome work! ..nom nom nom..

  81. Victoria Said,

    I come back because I love food blogs and yours is my favorite. You’re creative and really easy to follow when I find recipes I really like because of all the awesome pictures. And even, with the switch to more picture posts, it’s still a fulfilling blog to follow. You’ve inspired me to buy bulk spices. I’m intending to make the switch in a few weeks. (Oh, college.) Also, I love your ideas about making homemade hot sauce and bottling it for people. Thank you for inspiring me to cook in a more creative way (and sometimes take pictures along the way). =)

  82. Leigh Said,

    “Nevermind the fact that I can no longer make plans on Saturday or Sunday til after 2pm because THE LIGHT, what if I run out of LIGHT while we’re out at brunch?”

    >>I am so right there with you. My friends have taken to mocking me regularly.<<

    I don’t remember how I found you, but it was immediately after my friend David and I got on a “nom nom nom” rip over something silly and I said “Hey! There’s this chick that has a blog called…get this…The Omnomicon.” We had a brief, shallow discussion about the sort of person that would cross Lovecraft with food and decided you were awesome. At that moment the clouds parted and the sun shone and….I realized I was hooked. :) Keep writing.

    I come back because you say things like ” because THE LIGHT, what if I run out of LIGHT while we’re out at brunch?” and also because you have recipes like Lemon Meringue Cupcakes and Rainbow Cake that I can make that noone’s wife at my work will be able to make better.
    I dont care that her banana cake has walnuts in it. Mine doesn’t and its still damn tasty. Now shoosh and eat the free cake.
    Also, all the other stuff everyone has said about pretty pictures etc :)

    Also because you document the recipes etc that dont work. It’s endearing to know that even you have total bombs sometimes
