If you don't enjoy reading a certain blog, what do YOU do? I leave.. Maybe it just wasn't my thing. No biggie. Whatever floats your own boat is all that matters in this short life. To each his own. Variety is the spice of life. Big multiple O's are what makes the world go round. Having said that, I feel compelled to share with you an email I received. I have been stewing in my juices, and I have some nice hot sexy juices, let me tell you, anyway, Ive been stewing for a while now about it, so I think Id feel better if I could share it, so please allow me this selfish moment. Letter reads:
Donna- Your blog content is totally offensive and rude. Why, thank you! Not everyone enjoys pictures of men in a food blog. Ummm, Maybe not, but I do, and it is MY blog..
Are you proud of the fact that you speak like a tramp? Why, yes as a matter of fact I am, I am proud to be a tramp slave to my FFH(firefighter husband), I bet your husband is not nearly as happy as mine, you dried up wench..I see you as a tramp. Yeah, and I see you as a moron without a life. You joke about issues that are sacred to a marriage, such as love-making,yep, thats right, and that should remain behind closed doors.Reason being?? Also, as a foodie, I think referring to food as sexual objects is appalling.OK, this one's for you. Bet I can Beat you!
Your platform should be about food, family, and the like,Says?? Who?? The blogging police? Are my rights not included in the Constitution as well as yours? not about your antics involving christening rooms, and playing organs in cars. I think the green-eyed monster has got you. Find a different avenue for your dirty way of thinking. OK Maybe I ll try 69th street. It will benefit us all. Bite Me. I don't want to read your smut anymore. Go play with yourself.I will allow that speaking of gas and cracks is slightly humorous in a distasteful way, but the rest has to stop.You will ALLOW, how exciting, what is my punishment if I disobey? If you think you may need some professional counseling, I am sure there are services available in your area. And if you'd like to come to the class I teach on Sexual Acrobatics for the frustrated, bored, whiny woman, I will let you in free of charge .Or maybe speak to a local pastor about your nymphomaniac ways, they may be helpful. Crap- thanks for the idea, confessional quickie.I would never speak about such things on my blog,Well good for you jellybean ..Bet you would never undress in front of hubby either... I am proud of my blog and I work hard on it. You sound like the kind of woman that may have to work too hard at having the big O also. Bet I have many more than you have. I hope you take these words to heart and mend your soul. And my fervent hope for you is that you're ready for me when I come down your street ,with my lil ole groove on, my Polish temper aflarin', wanting to dance with you. Signed, And, no, you wuss of a woman, I won't publicly out you, you see, I'm too much of a lady. 'nuff said.
Pear Coffee Cake with Ginger Pecan Crunch Topping
This recipe is originally from a Bed and Breakfast Inn in Hyannis, MA. But can also be found on recipezaar here.
Before you begin, chop up about 1 cup of pecans and toast them.. my suggestion.. it wasn't called for in original recipe.. But everything is better toasted including men's buns. Cool and set aside. Preheat your oven to 350. Spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray.
Gather together your pears
and chop up about 2 cups worth. Mix together your flour, white and brown sugar, salt, and nutmeg.
Stir in your oil to incorporate thoroughly. Reserve 1 cup of this in a small bowl for your topping. Fold your chopped pears
into the remainder of the flour mixture.
Now stir in your egg, buttermilk, baking soda, and baking powder. Pour this goodness into the prepared pan. Sing I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy..
Gather your topping ingredients, the pecans, the ginger, and your reserved mixture.
Mix together. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the batter.
Bake for about 40 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.. This was so tasty, so very moist, and the flavors blended so well.
I will definitely make this again!
