For The Love Of Shortbread
Stop the madness people! I love cupcakes as much as the next person, but just because one loves cupcakes doesn't mean that it's necessary to go around recklessly disparaging other desserts.
Let's have some respect for the diversity of confections people! There's enough love for all the sweets.
Via a tweet from Raquelita, I learned that Cupcakes Take The Cake just celebrated their 9,000th blog post. That's quite an accomplishment. Congratulations!
One of the bloggers, Nichelle Stephens was quoted in a Los Angeles Times article about cupcakes. It's a wonderful article, and I agree with Tara Settembre's statement, "I don't think you can be angry eating a cupcake[.]" But read these not so sweet statements.
"Cookies are boring." "There's nothing endearing about a brownie."
Ouch! That's a bit harsh.
I didn't see anything about shortbread, so I guess it didn't even make it on the radar to warrant an insult. Well, I have to admit that I'm a recent convert to loving shortbread. But I'm a big fan now.
Recently I created a new shortbread recipe using OIKOS Organic Greek Yogurt. G went absolutely wild over it and I loved it too.
