I know it's all about "everything in moderation", and I understand that Spark is a gigantic site and not all articles are going to be viewed as helpful by all people.
But an article by Stepfanie Romine, a Sparkpeople Editorial Director, on how to make your own Girl Scout cookies seems to be over the top!!!!
AND, using the already-decadent Girl Scout cookies as a dessert INGREDIENT? That just leaves me speechless.
I really don't like seeing recipes on Spark for things I consider trigger foods (such as the herb-flavored potato chips that are also on my start page today). If I could control cookies and potato chips I wouldn't need Sparkpeople to begin with. If I see a recipe for an 8x8 pan of brownies that I'm supposed to cut into 32 servings? I'm not making it. In my book an 8x8 pan of brownies is 4-6 servings!
Ms. Romine's biography doesn't say that she's ever had a weight problem, and I'm thinking that's part of the reason for this Spark article "faux pas".
Am I overreacting? What do you think about this article?
