An open letter to Martha Stewart

Dearest Martha,

I have tried; I mean really tried to use your recipes. Your whole living website is great for healthy recipes that sound edible and delicious and I really do appreciate that; but, we need to have a chat. After multiple attempts to use your seemingly delicious recipes I have one main observation; girl, your recipes don't make any sense. I mean seriously...

When something like this:

ends up looking like this:

THERE.IS. SOMETHING. WRONG. And that took 5 ppl to try to interpret the recipe and we still failed.

I have a quiche in the oven right now that I had to scramble the eggs just to make them stay in the crust (a crust I have to mention I had to cook twice, because do tell, how does one make a crust with wheat germ, flour and chard alone? No wet ingredients at all?!) I now have egg soup under my quiche scramble...

So...Martha...dear Martha, I think you're fired. That is unless you decide to make your recipes more user friendly; cause I am not magical my friend. It's a good thing I have a taqueria with some killer mahi mahi tacos right around the corner.

Yours Truly,



  1. bahahahaha, this is great!

  2. hi cinnamon,

    your scaring me because my sister just bought me three of her cookbooks. yikes! thank you so much for the birthday wish!

    what book did you get this recipe from? okay, i see, you got this from her website. but most of her recipes from her website and show are in her books. i'm concerned. this is funny!

    God Bless,

  3. hahahaha OMG I swear I'm only laughing because that is so me... I'm glad to see I'm not the only one!! They actually still look pretty good... did you try it??

    Hope you have a great week Love!

  4. Haha, so true! That's why I've converted over to the recipes, etc from Real Simple instead, as they're a bit more my speed.

  5. hahahaha, i love the before & after! hopefully martha gets wind of this :)
