I mean, have you read the reviews on every single recipe?

ex: Oh I give this 5 stars!! I only changed every single ingredient amount and added these 5 things, used a completely different temp and time but it was great!!!

Just thought I'd vent my frustrations lol

********* Ok so SOME are having some reading comprehension trouble. I don't care, and even applaud you, for taking a recipe and MAKING IT YOUR OWN. My point WAS that if you take an online recipe and change nearly every ingredient plus the amounts and method of cooking, why go back to that recipe (which is not even what you really made anymore) and review it with all your changes? You're basically giving your own recipe 5 stars under someone else's recipes' reviews lol

And yes, vice versa as some have pointed out. When you change everything and give it a poor review. Point. Less.

I understand a tweak here and there is great and that IS why I even bother reading the reviews (honestly I don't know why you wouldn't read at least one review under a recipe before diving head first into it. It's just like purchasing something, I need to make sure there aren't any flaws that I or the "seller" aren't seeing or revealing before I buy).

Anyhow, hope I cleared that up.

Lol,
This just goes to show that my policy of avoiding the comments section just about everywhere on the interwebz is sound.

 LOL yes. I do use that site and people review a recipe and they changed the whole thing.

I hate when people do that! You didn't follow the recipe at all. I understand tweaking some things, but when you replace virtually every ingredient...

I'm glad I'm not the only one that this bugs. Lol

Yep, it's the same for almost every single recipe site. Some are genuinely helpful, but most are annoying as shit.
