    You had me at Peppermint Bark, December 2008! I'm a follower and always get rave reviews on my bark, I made 6 batches this season and it's always a hit…I may even make one more. I tell all my friends the recipe is from you and for them to check out your blog. I love how you are so down to earth and not fussy and enjoy your recipes and reading your blog. Yes, I'm a follower and will also post you to FB. As a mom now to two boys, newest baby born 4 weeks ago I think the slow cooker is going to be the way to go, especially when I go back to work after Mat leave.

    (Can you hear Billy Joel singing?)

    "Don't go changing, to try and please me
    You never let me down before
    Don't imagine you're too familiar
    And I don't see you anymore
    I wouldn't leave you in times of trouble
    We never could have come this far
    I took the good times, I'll take the bad times
    I'll take you just the way you are!"

    That's the truth!

    Hey there –
    One thing about your blog….no.
    Blog layout? I have to say I am partial to black print. Something about black background and white print makes me cross-eyed after a while….then again, that could be the wine, lol…just kidding. Sorta.

    This slow cooker is so nice. And what a nice person you are to give this slow cooker away. How can you not hoard it for yourself. Very generous. Thank you for giving me a chance to win this. As for the site more recipes would be wonderful. The demands of a family sometimes do not allow it. I do like your recipes and photography.

    Happy New Year!

  160. 160

    I do love your site but I sometimes am distracted by the color of the background. Everything else is great.

  162. 162

    Full feeds would be very nice. I subscribe to over 100 blogs and I just don't have time to always click over.

    There are ways to compute the feeds into your blog stats and there are ads you could put in the feeds if that is the reason you aren't publishing full feeds.

    Hi! Thanks for the giveaway… I'm new to your blog, but my initial reaction is you seem like a really fun, easygoing, talented food blog author.

    The only thing I could think of changing is maybe your black background? I really love the way it looks, but for some reason it hurts my eyes if I read for an extended period of time. But maybe it's just me??

    Guess what? I met someone! Actually I have known him for a few years as a customer. He thought I was a bitch for ID'ing him every time and I thought he was a dick for telling on me. Turns out there is another side to this man. Oh wow! He moves in next week. I am so damn excited. Which means I will be cooking more, so…..pick me, k?

    Your blog is great. The black background makes it very hard to read!

  372. 372

    I like your blog as is, but it's a bit hard to read on an iPhone with the dark background.

    I tweeted the contest from @poodle_power

  374. 374

    New reader. Like what I see. Not crazy about the black background, but that's much less important than the content.

    You must be perfect, take that SpongeBob cake for example, perfect! The feedback on my cakes are more like WTH? Lovely site, can't wait to see you on FN. Oh and another perfect thing about you, sponsoring this amazing giveaway!

    You are Peeeeerrrrrrfect!! However, one teeny suggestion about the blog would be to stay away from white writing on black backgrounds. It's hard for us OLD Hungry Housewives (and Little Effers) to read with our old eyes!!
    Thanks for including us!!!

    Love your site! I would maybe make the header on top a bit bigger? No biggie though. I wouldn't have thought about it unless you asked me. Otherwise, I like it! Thanks!

    LOVIN' the new background! <3

    I don't know. Maybe more photos of the food you cook or photos of the steps as you make a dish. I always like that. Great site!
