I’m not a Best Blog…

So not only in the 14 paragraph email did I learn that I was horrible for not having a print button (which again for the record I do on the newer recipes) I also learned that I am not the best blog. Which is upsetting to me as pretty much anyone who asks what I do I tell them well I run the BEST BLOG don’t you know that? So clearly this was a blow to my ego. Thank goodness for Nyquil or I might not have been sleeping for the last few nights.

The other thing I learned is that The Pioneer Woman is the best blog and one of those reasons is because of her print button. Martha Stewart has a nice print button as well but that they would not want to be friends with her because she was in prison. Let me just say Ree this woman is a follower of you for life, though I do fear she may have a shrine up of you somewhere made of print buttons. Let’s hope she looks nothing like you Ree or she might be trying to do a little Single White Female switching action on you. Run Ree. Run.

Since she was so dedicate to all things Pioneer Woman I decided why not make a Pioneer Woman recipe? So I did…with my own twist of course. Tres Leches Cake (which means three milks for those not familiar) but with a candy corn twist since this has pretty much been candy corn week. Like the other things I have made with candy corn this week, this does not have an overpowering candy corn taste…just a hint. Which is why both candy corn lovers and haters will eat it. :)

And because I know the majority of you are dying to see what was in the email…here you go…in it’s entirety. My comments are in bold. :P :

I found your blog through Pinterest and while I find many of the recipes to look delightful you site is not nearly as good as most of the food blogs I follow. Do you know the Pioneer Woman’s blog? You should strive to be more like that. That site is well put together and has a lot of features your blog should consider. Hmmm…who is this Pioneer Woman you speak of? :P

The thing that bugs me most is that you don’t have a print button. I see a recipe that looks interesting yet I can’t print it. Am I supposed to walk to my computer everytime to make the recipe? Is this how I will burn off the calories I make from all your fattening treats? That is actually a great way to burn calories….good idea. 

Why would you make a site and not put on a print button. A print button is not that hard of a thing to put on. All of the best blogs have a print button so clearly you do not have a best blog. The best blogs have print buttons. Oh the shame I am not a best blog. (hangs head)

Maybe you like to tease us and are like joke on you you see the recipe but you don’t get to print the recipe. So you can want the recipe but can’t make the recipe unless you own a lap top which I do not. So if I want your recipe I either have to buy a lap top or not make it. Or if I print it will print out your entire site. Yes when I write this blog I think about how I can tease and mess with the reader…I did that in teaching school as well. 

Whoever designed your site shold have put in a print button. I hope you didn’t pay someone for this site because when you don’t have a site that looks like the Pioneer Woman people aren’t going to come to that site. But I guess that’s why she has books and tv shows because she knows how to run a blog. She also gets a lot of comments and you don’t because she runs a better blog. She does get a lot of comments. I used to get comments a lot more than I do now so maybe I used to be a best blog….just not anymore. 

It would make the life of the people who read this blog much easier to have the print button. We could just look at the recipe and print and it would be there in the printer. But you do not have a print button. The best blogs have print buttons. So what you are saying are the best blogs have print buttons?

It seems to me that if I were to start a food blog that had recipes on it and I wanted people to be able to use those recipes I would have a print button. I don’t have a food blog though. I don’t have a blog at all actually. But these are things to think about. Oh please, please, please start a food blog so I can learn from you. 

Another site that has a print button is Martha Stewart. She has both magazines and her website and I think she still puts out books as well. Very streamlined site. And she does crafts as well. Most people who cook craft or scrapebook as well have you considered a section like that. The Pioneer Woman has different sections on her blog and Martha Stewart does to. I’m not skilled enough to do more than one thing. 

I know you are not as popular as those blogs and people but I think more people would come to your site if they knew you had a print button. Maybe put in a print button and advertise that you have one on Pinterest and that you now have a print button which you currently do not have. I will have to look into that print button advertising. I’m sure it’s all the rage. 

Does it cost money for the print button? Is that why you don’t have it? Are you too cheap? I bet the Pioneer Woman didn’t care about the cost of the print button. I bet she thought what would the people want? I think she is very generous in that way. I bet she would be great as a friend. I wish I were her friend. I don’t think I want to be Martha Stewarts friend because she has been to prison. I don’t trust people who have been in jail. I suck at programming so yes it cost money to have the print button added. As with anything added to this site. It cost more than I make in advertising to run this site. I bet Ree would be a good friend. And yes be wary of Martha Stewart as she has far too many knives at her disposal and who knows what trade secrets she learned in prison for stabbing people. 

So if you could add a print button that would be great. I notice you have a donation button for pay pal so you will take our money gladly but you wont give a print button feature. I will never give you my money for your inferior site. Hey look I do have a print button. 

I can’t believe you expect people to give you money for this site? You just rake in money from us and expect us to sit by and make you one of the popular blogs when you don’t have a print button. You will never make it as a blogger without a print button. Yes, that’s me, just raking in the money. 

Maybe one day if you are very lucky you will meat the Pioneer Woman. If you do you need to ask her how she runs the best site there is. She might not talk to you because you don’t have one of the better blogs but she seems charitable to me. So maybe charity will be on your side and she can tell you how you can do the best blog ever. Yours will never be the best as hers but maybe. Yes MEATING the Pioneer Woman would be great. I have met her sister and she was lovely so genetics probably dictate that Ree is the same, eh? Yes hopefully she would help me become the best blog ever…after hers. 

So again please put in a print button. I want to print this cake but I sit here and I can’t I can not print because you do not have a print button. You are not a good food blog. Your wish is my command. 

Thanks for consideration please add print button or I cannot make recipe,


Not to be out done by the dog here is me in the Mail Chimp hat. :)

  1. LMAO. Clearly you need to schedule a conference call with the Pioneer Woman immediately, lest you miss out on your opportunity to be a best blog. I LOVE your blog; glad you have such a good sense of humor about this a-hole.

  2. This is, hands down, one of the best things I’ve ever read. Bravo!

  3. Oh that is just too funny! Love it!

  4. You are brilliant! Thank you for making my night. Have gotten too many like these myself.
    Printing recipe now. My laptop is far too heavy to actually carry into the kitchen and leave on the counter while I make your cake. ;)

  5. Lets look at the bright side…she gave you the inspiration for a new post…and a hilarious one at that.Also not to forget add a print button to your recipes!!

  6. What? Is this for real? If it is this person must not be all that bright poor thing! Print button or no print button it’s the same to me, I don’t have a printer, so here’s my little secret: I take a pen and paper and I just write it down! And it’s cheaper than a lap top! Really you should be ashamed of yourself, teasing people like that…

  7. Still laughing at the Print Button :)))

    Love your blog because i get a delicious recipe and an entertaining post! :)

  8. You’re are one of the best for me. You have such original ideas, you’re funny and everything you make looks amazing. You are so generous with your culinary creativity and I am sorry I don’t tell you how much I enjoy reading your blog more than I have.

    Thank you for sharing your kitchen life with the world.

    Thank you for inspiring me.

    p.s. Candy Corn Tres Leche Cake? Pure genius and utterly divine!

    p.s.s Anyone who cannot think to copy the text on the internet and paste it to microsoft word or similar needs to go back to school.

  9. Do these people not have a cut and paste feature on their computers. I often do this even when there is a print button, that way I only get the info I want and not all of the other jargon.

    Your cake sounds amazing. I like your blog, it has humor, something Martha is lacking greatly.

  10. All I have to say is THANK YOU! That email was fabulous.

  11. Is this person actually serious? i can’t believe we live in a society surrounded by people like this.

  12. Has this person never heard of copy and paste?! Your blog is still my favorite. :)

  13. Wow–I couldn’t stop reading her email to you. I just kept thinking–it isn’t too hard to copy/paste into a Word/Work/Notepad document and hit print. I hope her laziness doesn’t rub off on me…I have some serious printing to do…later.

  14. I have no words to say about this. I’m glad that you can laugh at this because you make me laugh at this. Thanks P!

  15. Print button? PRINT BUTTON? How mundane! I want a button to press that makes the actual recipe appear on my kitchen counter, ready to be eaten!

    Print button. . . hmph.

  16. I know a lot of people who check out PW every day just to see if she’s giving something away. You have something to say and I enjoy your humor and point of view. Oh, and you have some great recipe ideas. So keep on keeping on, you DO have a best blog

  17. Given that this woman is able to cook, and use a computer, I’m going to assume she has full use of her hands and arms. So – if she’s incapable of using copy and paste, what’s wrong with pen and paper? No? it’s either print button, or she can’t use the recipe without a laptop in the kitchen with her? Too funny!

  18. Yours is the only blog I read regularly, so to me, you are the best blog! Thank you for posting something so amazingly amusing for me to find on a day I really needed a laugh!

  19. Oh boy, this is hilarious! I kept laughing and therefore had to explain the whole thing to my roommate! (*^_^*) thanks for sharing! And I think your blog is great–you always have unique recipes and funny stories!

  20. hahaha….sorry I laughed, but this is just very entertaining to read. On a brighter note, take it as a compliment as she compared you with the Pioneer Women and Martha Steward side by side! ;) Okay, now, you have the Best Blog Ever because you’ve got a Print button on this post! hahaha….sorry, again. Can’t help it. Nice looking cake, by the way. Have a good day.

  21. I. Am. Speechless.

  22. Hilarious, yet sad. In the time it took her to write that email, she could have printed all of your recipes. Amazing! I wonder how some people function. Thanks for sharing – it was a great laugh!

  23. Your blog may never be “the best as hers” (Ree Drummond), and you may never have a chance to “meat her,” but you’re both bester than me cuz I don’t have a Print button. I really should figure that out at some point, but I guess it’s a good thing your ex-reader (?) didn’t stop by my blog!!!! That’s hysterical. If you think about it, she devoted so much time to the message, maybe she really does care and just wants to see you succeed. ;’)

  24. Peggy Fisher says:

    Oh my gosh! This is hysterical. Where is the LIKE button? Is that an option because really everyone should be able to LIKE something. Does Ree know about that?

  25. LOL. That print button lady is a kook. If she doesn’t know how to print a recipe without having the “print” button, she clearly should not be on the web. As far as who’s blog is the best, hands down yours is. No offense to Ree, I personally do not like her blog or her recipes. Tried a few, wasn’t impressed. But I chalk that up to just different people have different tastes. Keep up the good work!

  26. I don’t know maybe go the old fashion way and get a pen and a piece of paper?

  27. What ever happened to writing things down on a piece of paper. Remember recipe cards?! Yikes, people just have too much time on their hands to complain about silly things.

  28. Oh my. There are just no words for that woman. I think your blog is great and seriously funny.

  29. This is my first time to your blog via Bake at 350. That letter was so annoying, I couldn’t make it through paragraph 3! She is obviously very skilled with the use of her keyboard and has A LOT of time on her hands. Has she not yet heard of copy/paste/print? That’s what I do when there is no print option. (by the way crazy lady.. I have a laptop and an iPad and I STILL copy/paste/print!) I do not sit down and spend a half hour firing off a nasty email! There are some nutso people out there. Anyway.. You will be followed by me from now on because I think you are hilarious. Obviously you would be much funnier if you had a print button, but I’ll give you a chance anyway. :D

  30. I’m naughty. My first thought to reply was, “Hey K, print *this*!” lol but ya, copy/paste, pen/paper, crayon/candy wrapper, knife/tree trunk, chisel/rock, interpretive dance/captive audience, fire bad/ (and obviously) Ree good… what a kook- “K” needs to get a life! lol

  31. OMG Thank God you FINALLY added that print button! I know it is super difficult to just cut and paste your recipe and print it that way. So thank you! Did you ask Pioneer Women for help on how to add the print button? But don’t ask Martha Stewart!

  32. It scares me that there are people who can navigate Pinterest but can’t print things without a button. And more importantly, people this obsessed with a print button.

    If this would have arrived in my email, I would have just replied with “Am I being punked?”

  33. Hilarious. 3 words. Copy and paste. What a moron. Love your blog, don’t listen to the weirdos!!!!

  34. That person was seriously disturbed. If she can’t copy and paste the recipe has she ever though of a pen and paper??? Ugh.

  35. Oh. My. Goodness. Someone needs a life – don’t they?! Seriously? This just floors me. This is why I’m glad I DON’T have a popular blog! LOL! And really – I can’t tell you how many times I have just copied the recipe onto a word document and PRINTED it. Maybe that is more than this reader can handle. It just floors me. Pull that head up high and continue to blog proudly! :)

  36. Oh my goodness. I can’t believe this is for real. I’m dying. I found this post and your totally BEST BLOG (you’re great, I can tell already) through Bridget @ Bake at 350. I’m so sharing this and you with my readers. Your cake sounds yummy. Thank god I know how to highlight and print selection, but just in case some people (eh hem) don’t know about this miracle of technology you’re splendid Print This! button is the way to go. Thanks for the laugh. So following you now. Gotta make sure you have the clout to meet Ree. ;)

  37. Soo Funny! But where is your LIKE button?? :p

  38. Even though you are not the best blog, I am going to start following you:) that person is crazy!

  39. This is awesome! Who needs a blog conference?! I’m deleting my posts and replacing it with a giant print button so people will come from miles around to gaze at it! You just made my morning!

  40. oh my gosh. That email was WAY more mental than I thought it would be! (I read a later post first) Who the HECK has that kind of energy to spend on a print button?? With all that time spent typing she could have just hand-written out the recipes she wanted a few times over! Yikes. Sounds like my MIL. Actually, the only reason I know it’s not her is that she doesn’t live in Florida :) PS, I LOVE that you don’t have a blog like Martha Stewart. You are perfect!

  41. Print button. Print button. Print button.

    The word has lost all meaning.

  42. Jeanne Lobsinger says:

    I found your blog through “Bake at 350″ and now I must follow you! I love a good blog, especially a funny blog. When you can make fun of yourself, you have a “best blog!” Looking forward to many more laughs.

  43. “Blah, blah, blah print button. Blah, blah, blah print button! BLAH. Print button” COPY IT INTO A WORD DOCUMENT AND PRINT IT THAT WAY!

  44. Bwah ha ha ha!!! For the record, I just asked my 7 yr old daughter if she could figure out how to print this WITHOUT a ‘print’ button- and she can. So you are surely the best food blog in our household. I adore your beautiful photos, the recipes sound amazing (I’m pretty sure I’ve gone up 2 sizes just reading them!)- and LOVE that you’re a local girl!
    Thanks for the chuckle!!!

  45. Thanks to Bridget for giving us the link to this site….It is incredibly sad that K has nothing better to do than write negative volumes to express one point…hopefully someone kind in her life will show her how to copy and print from the internet….I am in awe of you and other bloggers who have so much talent! You bring joy daily to millions of readers….never fear, most of us know how to use the recipes, even without a “Print” button!

  46. debcurlydog says:

    OMG…I can’t believe this person, get a life??!! Print button, REALLY? Maybe copy text and paste, if you can’t do that, you shouldn’t have a computer LOL!

  47. Teri Youngblood says:

    Love it you are fantastic!

  48. hilarious! Why couldn’t that lovely emailer just right click and print? I mean, really. This is only my second stop to your blog and I find it lovely and inviting. :)
    Crazy frikkin people, gotta love them.

  49. That was quite an email. Somebody certainly loves print buttons.
    Amazing! And may I say Peabody, you DO have a “Best Blog” in my book!

    …Now that you have a print button, anyway.
