What is the best substitute for Greek yogurt?
Plain yogurt or sour cream are both good substitutes for Greek yogurt.
Your blog is very nice, and you have some yummy recipes. One thing that will make me leave a page immediately is a black-out subscribe-to-my-blog page that takes forever to load and get rid of. Please consider rethinking your invitation to subscribe.
I appreciate your kinds words and your feedback. Honestly, it can be a difficult line to walk. Everyone hates pop-ups, but they are effective. When I had an invitation to follow on my sidebar, it went largely unnoticed. I tried to find one that was relatively unobtrusive, and I chose one that was easy to close out of. I will, however, look into why it took forever to load and to close. Thank you again for your feedback!
Good luck to you says
I agree, I wanted to check out your recipes, but I had to close a pop-up every time I clicked on something. It was really annoying. I won’t be back.
I’m sorry that you feel that way. Unfortunately, I can’t make everyone happy, and I have tried to minimize the intrusions where possible. Were I to take down all of the ads and remove all pop-ups, I would have to pay for the hundreds of dollars in fees associated with running this site every month out of my pocket. After all, the “free” recipes that you get on sites, really aren’t free. Any legitimate blog that puts up recipes has a huge investment in that site in time, design fees, maintenance fees, food costs, hosting fees, and other assorted expenses. The cost to you is closing out a pop-up. If that is too much for you, I wish you luck in finding sites where you never have to deal with ads, pop-ups, or any other annoyances.
