General complaint

Monday, July 01, 2013

This really doesn't have anything to do with my weight loss journey, which I've kind of slacked off a little bit. This is a complaint about the Spark Recipes shared by so many members.

These people take the time to share their recipes, sometimes with pictures as well. Then in the reader comments, you see things like "I liked this, but I substituted this for that." If you have made changes, it is no longer the original recipe submitted. If you insist on saying it is, you have just insulted them by telling them that their recipe needed to be improved.

To all those who post their recipes, kudos to you. To those who think they can "improve" the original recipe, go to Spark Recipes and create your "own recipe." The original is great as is.

    Don't like that and also I don't like when you go to see a recipe that it does not have any ingredients at all, just the name

    I definitely agree. Every now and again I may make a modification, if its something I don't have on hand or I don't eat, but I never write it in the review.
