Some people need to learn the difference between saying “little” and “a little” or "few" and "a few" (eg, “I planted few vegetables this year” versus “I planted A few vegetables this year”, or "little skill is needed" versus "a little skill is needed") - because, and this is really important, they mean the Exact. Bloody. Opposite!

If those people would take the trouble to correct themselves, things would be a lot less confusing on their bloody blog posts, especially when they're recipe instructions!

Yeah, I'm in a bad bood modd mood. And?

Oooh---I feel your pain! Little skill is needed to write recipes, it seems!

Oh, I have one too! I wish people would understand the difference between "it's" and "its". They're completely different, but I've seen
it on soooooooooo many food blogs being used interchangeably. I say food blogs coz they make up more than 50% of the blogs I visit.
I've seen this on some of the "good" blogs too and that has surprised me a bit.

Also, sometimes, I wonder why people feel the need to have a "story" to accompany the recipe especially if it is not even well-written. Really, just give us the recipe and nothing more, please!!

It annoys me so and just puts me off that post/blog!

God, I think I need help! :D
