Remember the recipe survey I gave you last week? To help me tailor the recipes on the site? And to get to know you lovely readers better? Well, to all of you who participated, a huge thank you. The data I collected has been more than helpful as I write my recipes. And for you curious minds, here are some gorgeous charts showing the results.
You statisticians just got a little rush, didn’t ya? I won’t judge.
You leaned between “yes” and “always” for estimated cook times. Noted. I’ll now have Lucy clock me as I cook. If you see “Prep Time: 1,2,3,4″ and “Cook Time: Pretzel,” blame the time keeper.
A slight majority think a list of special equipment is unnecessary, but enough of you want to be cautioned about special appliances that I’ll include a list of those from now on.
Let’s compromise and do numbered paragraphs, shall we?
I’ll stick with short and sweet, maybe going into more detail for less familiar ingredients.
I’ll continue with my standard Tbsp, Tsp, Oz, C, etc.
Oh 38%. How I love you. And for you 51%, I’ll employ a nutrition calculator when called for.
For the 58% of you who would like freezing directions, I’ll include those when applicable. And for the 21% of you who have things growing in your refrigerator, I refer you to this video to scare you into safety. Grandma always said, “when in doubt, throw it out!” Okay, not my grandma. I’m pretty sure she still eats Triscuits from 1988. But I’m sure some grandma somewhere says that.
Alright, you 1%: reveal yourselves!
Thanks again to everyone for filling out the survey. Maybe next time I’ll poll you on your favorite foods. Or whether or not you would like to see me do video cooking demos wearing a Spiderman costume. Or which flavor of Lip Smackers is the best. Or which aisle of the grocery store makes your skirt fly up. Or whether you prefer the Beatles or the Stones (there is only one correct answer).
I freaking love surveys!
P.S. Hugs to my husband Dave for putting together these graphs for his Excel-challenged wife. xoxo
