Whatever!

I love you people who leave negative comments...but always forget to leave your name. You entertain me. Edited to add: I also love Velveeta, Miracle Whip and Pork Rinds.

Cool whip?! Premade cookie dough?! Ick! Not very domestic diva.

Geesh! Does this lady actually whip her own cream or what?!? LOL! I thought it looked pretty tasy, myself. And... why spend all that time making things from scratch if it saves time & tastes good? That's my theory, at least. :)

Kelley Eubanks said...

LOL!! You go girl! If you can't say anything nice... just move on to the next blog!

BTW... I never comment on here even though I have followed you forever! Don't be thinking it was me! :) Just wanted to say that I like a woman who will call someone out! :)

Lynn said...

omg...I thought the recipe looked pretty tasty! I am definitely going to try that cookie recipe. Who wants to spend time in the kitchen when there is papercrafting to do, right?

sewingseedscraftylife said...

Aren't those the four basic food groups? lol I love your blog and your recipes. I have tried several and they are just delish!!! Gotta go, I think I'll make me some cheez whiz nachos before my TV shows start. Life's too short to take negative comments seriously. Patty

Pattie said...

I love your blog Michelle! And I use shortcuts all the time...I work full-time retail hours and have two kids and sometimes shortcuts are a lifesaver.

I had a neighbor like "anonymous" once who thought that making everything from scratch was better. Trust me...it wasn't.

Anonymous should go read another blog then...just my opinion...and I'll be using my real name. Oh, and I'm one of "those people who say it like it is!" ;)

Patti J said...

Some people just have too much time, and no common sense. And...are just plain mean! I actually LOVE that you don't whip your own cream! I'd feel like a real loser running out and buying cool whip! lol... So glad you held your ground!

Lynn said...

Good Lord...you go on Mish! I absolutely adore your blog and have zero patience for negativity. It is a choice to follow blogs...if you don't like it...move on to the next one...too many wonderful times in life to spend time on negativity. I love all your inspiration and peaks into your everyday life. THANK YOU FOR SHARING WITH US! Keep it coming!

Connie Pruitt said...

Mean people suck!

Sue said...

Just as not everyone has the ability to create wonderful works of art, some are just plain "challenged" in the kitchen! Shortcuts and "cheater" methods make perfect sense to me! My kitchen sees me doing both "from scratch" and "cheater", and I know from your previous posts that it is the same for you. Too bad anonymous is a kitchen snob (and snarky besides)...

Betty said...

cool whip is a staple in my fridge - try betty crocker pumpkin spice cookies (the mix comes in a bag) - they are yummy with powdered sugar frosting drizzled on.

Helen said...

Why would anyone bother to say mean things.. let it go, some people are never happy, I love your blog and cards.It's the first one I check everyday,to see what you have come up with next..I brought you those little tin cups to the Cha show in Chicago. Hope you were able to put them to good use.
Helen

Gizmo said...

What a snarky comment. I love your blog and look forward to each new post, whether it is crafty or whatever. I love your Etsy items too! You've even inspired me to use some of my grandmothers things in unique ways in my craft room and I am so glad I found a way to enjoy them everyday.

Romaine said...

You know, I don't know why those people bother....I love what Kelley E. said!
I love reading everyday, I just don't know what kind of "tasty bit" for eyes or otherwise I will find! :0)

jen said...

I'm with everyone else- I love your blog & all your ideas!!! I'm always amazed that people will go out of their way to be nasty... WHATEVER is right!!!! :D
(and I can't wait to try those pb & reeses cookies!!)

Kimberly Anne said...

Wow, Mish...you're hilarious! Even though I aleady love your blog...I love it even more now. Thanks for making us feel inspired every day & for making us all laugh along with you.

Save me some velveeta (which goes great mixed with a can on Hormel chili and tortilla chips)!

Jackie said...

Please - I used to make all pie crusts from scratch and peanut butter kiss cookies from scratch. After twenty years I discovered that pillsbury tastes just as good for a fraction of the time. Why spend quality time that could be used for friends, family or crafting ;) to stand in the kitchen to get the same results? Believe me, I have quizzed friends and family who could not tell the difference, and I am a great baker, btw - lol! Keep up the great blog, love it!

glitter girl said...

Good for you! I have only recently discovered that a lot of people like to make very mean comments hiding behind their computer screen! I'm appalled, although I *suppose* I shouldn't be. AND - can I mention that Pioneer Woman makes a similar cookie recipe w/ store bought dough and mini candy bars, so there!

Nadine said...

Geez, some people's children! Just for the record, I wasn't the anonymous poster, lol!!

I also wanted to let you know that I love how you are handling this! You go Mish!!

Follower from Down Under said...

Here's another anonymous but POSITIVE commenter! Your BLOG and your WORK are awesome and you are a very talented person. Keep those great posts coming. I enjoy reading them immensley! THE END!

Elin K. said...

Don't let the negatives get you down! MOST of your followers, though some like myself are often lurkers, adore your projects and the things you share.

I love when I get to "know" someone through their crafts, then they grace me with a peek into their daily lives. Even if it is Cool Whip and half-handmade cookies. :)

Sarah Martina said...

Yum... I could go for some pork rinds. Good thought, Mish! ;)

Eveline said...

People shouldn't judge people by what they use in the kitchen!
I like your blog, always a joy to come by.
I use shortcuts too, and sometime I make things from scratch.
Eveline.

Le Raskin said...

What's the point of leaving a comment if you're just going to dis someone? Someone clearly has too much time on their hands and too much attitude. Cool whip rocks. It's my shortcut for desserts because let's face it, I don't have time or energy to just whip cream. I have cards to make and blogs to follow--like your blog! Loving all the holiday ideas! Thanks for sharing.

Gaby Santiago said...

Thanks God you used pillsbury dough, otherwise we wouldn't have those beautiful posts with your paper creations!

I know you also make things from scratch, (jalapeno jelly for example...)but it's nice to hear there's people out there using pre-made ingredients, too.

I love your posts and I visit you every day :), I followed you from PTI

Nori said...

omgoodness that was hilarious!!

i'm sorry... who said that this was a cooking blog??

i love you and all your ideas!

Anonymous said...

Why do we all concentrate on the negative, we don't need it. You just concentrate on all of us who love what you do and live in the real world. I, for one, really enjoy your blog and your incredible talent. Gill (in Aussieland)

Anonymous said...

Food snobs are so boring! If it tastes good, I don't care how it's made! Love your attitude Mish, and love that you share with us.

Robin Ide said...

I figure people like this are pretty unhappy with themselves and their own life to write nasty, negative comments on someone's blog. If you posted that you had made everything from scratch, their comment would have been "well, it must be nice to have the time to do all that"
It all comes down to Karma, baby---and I think it's gonna suck to be them down the road!!!

I LOVE your blog--don't ever change!

eleftheria said...

i visit your blog every day although i don t always leave a comment.I love your attitude towards mean people but i hope you re entertained more by all of us who LOVE you and your beautiful creations. Hugs and kisses from Greece...

Dawn F. said...

As a Family & Consumer Science (also know as home economics in other parts of the country) teacher in Northern New York, my motto is buy premade and spice it up. Yes, it's fun to make things from scratch but who has the time. My students are getting the skills to know how to "go homemade" if they choose but many times it's just as easy and economical to buy premade. Anyway, enough of that - I say bring on more of great recipes - I"ve made quite a few of them and have never had a complaint so thanks for sharing so generously!

JeanD said...

You're a domestic and crafty "godess" in my book. I thank you for all the inspiration you give us with your craft,decorating and cooking. Who cares if it's not all "from scratch" (other than the obvious one). we should each be able to cook/craft/decorate as we please if our families are happy with it.

Lisa said...

Your projects are among the cutest on the web and I visit you blog daily for inspiration. Why on earth would anyone take the time to actually leave a negative comment? You've got to ignore stupid people and keep posting your amazing work for those of us who are addicted to your blog!! LOVE YOUR WORK!!!

Beth said...

SPEW! Maybe you need to open a can of Whoop@$$ in your next recipe! LOL! THAT'S A SHORT CUT! I know *YOU* have that in your closet!

Remember - people can be totally rude - remember the woman who told me to get my eyebrows done! LOL!

Isabel Z said...

You rock, Mish! I LOVE Velveeta and pork rinds.

sherryann (aka Sherry Eckblad) said...

Some people have nothing better to do so they try to rain on everyone else. Too bad we all just find it just a little funny and something to comment about.

I am all for premade cookie dough and coolwhip.

Cindy said...

I think you can hold your own, Mish!
And, I don't know how much more domestic you can get. All of the crafty goodness you create just blows my mind. I look forward to reading your blog daily. And on the days you don't update, I am lost! Keep on doing what you do!

Debbie Fisher (debbiedee) said...

Mish, I am sooo glad you posted your recipe. I make these every year and I make them the LONG way. I was thrilled to learn of a short cut!

scrappin' happy said...

Gosh, I'd love to see what this person thinks of my doings because I am the queen of using shortcuts...I always think, oh how I would love to be more domestic like Mish but with three little kids and one on the way....not going to happen anytime soon! This is the 5th blog I have visited that has had negative comments. I don't understand what gives people the right! I'm doing a cookie swap and I was totally going to use your cookies for it! Still am! Love your blog! I visit it everyday!

kinderdi said...

Focus on the positive and leave the negative behind! : ) We are busy women and pre-made cookie dough is the way to go. I use it all of the time!! Your time and energy is put into the gift; thanks for sharing the inspiration on your blog!

Kim G said...

Oh my word, who would ever leave a negative comment on your blog? You are such a great inspiration! If she doesn't like what you use in your recipes, she just doesn't need to make them! Keep up the good work!

Kristy Hansenwi said...

I'm sorry for the mean comment-You have many great ideas-and if she didn't think so she wouldn't be on your blog to begin with.....so with that said I hope you can let it go and chalk it up to someone that doesn't realize that someone like me needs those shortcuts and easy to follow recipes....I thank you!

Sarah O. said...

Hahahahaha...LOVED your Edit!! Don't let the turkeys get you down. Annonymous probably pumps her water from a well too ~ instead of using the faucet "short cut".

Dinah Soar said...

That person needs to get a life in the real world. For HER information fat free Cool Whip has helped me lose 26 pounds.

Evidently she doesn't have any real friends who've told her that she is rude.

KanataNewf said...

good for you on the call out. Personally, I thought it all looked pretty tasty and would try for myself. Albeit from scratch because I am one of "those" people who does that sort of thing (no kids=lots of time to play in the kitchen and craft room). That being said - I'm not above the short cuts! (and definitely prefer Miracle Whip to real mayo!)

mamajulie said...

I can't believe someone would be so negative with you when you share so freely with us. Some people are just mean and bad to the bone--like the old man who followed me to my car in the mall and yelled at me for no reason. Funny part--bypassers asked him if I was "bothering" him when he was verbally assaulting ME. Try to laugh it off and move on.

milkshake007 said...

As long as it is made with love, it doesn't matter if it was made from scratch or not.
Love your blog and please keep sharing the recipes.....I truly enjoy them. Wish I could do one fourth of the stuff you accomplish!
Hugs!!
Cathy

Kris Carpinello said...

Oh my gosh!!! For those of us who have NO desire to be Martha Stewart, premade cookie dough is PERFECT!!! My kids appreciate anything I make, be it from scratch or not, and I can guarantee you we have those treats a lot more often that if I insisted on making everything from scratch. Have never posted before, but just couldn't keep my mouth shut.
Keep those recipes coming!!! 99% of your readers love them!!!

paula said...

A true domestic diva uses what is in her kitchen to make something delicious! Sounds like you fit the bill to me!

dolcreations said...

She sure doesn't know our Mish! I thought that recipe was perfect and actually I am heading out today to get the ingredients! Please keep posting ALL your wonderful creations...WE LOVE each and every post!

Kristin said...

Good grief! I rarely comment on your blog but read EVERYTHING you write and am a fan on FB. Seriously, some people have too much time and not enough to do. Told my sweet dh about your cookies and his comment... "want me to go to the store?" HA! love it! Anytime you want to post a recipe you do it! I've made lots of your stuff :-)

Angie DiMeglio said...

How rude!!! Can't believe someone would actually put that in the comments -- there's one in every crowd.

Tracey McNeely said...

Mish, you are amazing. Negative and downright mean comments are simply jealousy! Your blog is always inspiring and yours is the most domesticated and uber cool blog I follow--don't change a thing!! Please keep being you.

Beth Norman said...

I'm so glad you shared what she said because it would kill me to know. What a nasty lady. It sounds like to are able to get past this. I'm so sorry for you.

Regina Cornelius regcorn@zoominternet.net said...

oh my - how RUDE of that commenter.....

i absolutely love the fact you hit this comment head on. way to go!!

♥Wendi said...

OMG, are you kidding me? This person obviously does not follow your blog enough to know that you are as amazing as it gets! As for me, your recipes are always a hit with me. Keep them coming, just as they are!!

Cindy Otto said...

I love your website and hope you continue to give us yummy recipes and ideas for treats and gifts. Don't let the negative comments get you down. You only live once! Enjoy it!!!

Jennifer aka Scrappin' Aggie said...

Mish - you crack me up! I cannot believe someone would waste the time to bring someone down, and the fact they couldn't leave their name they knew it was wrong. It is so much more fun to lift others up!

Patty J said...

You rock! At EVERYTHING! And you make me laugh too. Such an enjoyable blog with my cup of tea in the morning, thank you and please keep sharing.

Craft Crazy Carrie said...

Hi Mish! I'm with the gals--I love clicking thru your blog in the am to see what new, neat exciting things you have done!! love the inclusion of your kids...it is so warming to see them! Thanks for all you do!

DeeDee said...

OMG! Some people! Good gravy, the nerve of 'em! Well, I just wanted to let you know that the man who blogs here: http://www.happilyevercrafter.com/2010/11/wanted-bread-or-alive.html thinks you've hung the moon.....as do I! Love ya girlie! HUGS!

Brenda Weaver said...

Oh my! You'd think people would have better things to worry about than whether or not someone else's food choices meet their expectations.
So she doesn't eat those things, you do. Who cares!?
I haven't been reading your blog for a very long time, but I love the ideas you have to share. (psst...I love cool whip too!)

Rachel Schumacher said...

Whatever is right! I love your blog and I love me my cool whip, too!!

CARDS by SUSAN said...

Hey Mish! PLEASE don't stop posting recipe's on your blog, shortcut ones or not. I have tried more than one, they are GREAT! We all know you ROCK as a cook. Does Anonymous grow a garden and can??? Seriously, jealousy is the worst trait in a person!
Thanks for sharing yourself with thoes of us who love you!
Susan

Krista said...

so sorry Mish that you have to deal with that kind of childishness. as silly as her comments are, what it really means is she's jealous and unhappy

Cindy H. said...

Oh, Mish, add me to the list of people who think you have it all together! Your tasty treats always make me think of the warmth of home and isn't that what you are trying to create for your family. The anonymous person must have found a few minutes to harass you as she/he waits for their pheasant-under-glass to cook - ick!! Please don't change, I love coming here. Cindy H., who loves short cuts in the kitchen:)

Creative Crafting said...

Oh Michelle! Why do people have to be so rude?? I love your blog, keep up the good work!! :) (hugs)

Kristyn Sinnott said...

In my eyes, You ARE a domestic diva...you care and love your family and you seem to make the most mundane normal things in life a celebration. I need to do more of this. You inspire me, cool whip and premade dough and all.

Stampin' Jen said...

Hello....Cool Whip. Um. Yeah. I use it. I even buy the store brand instead of name brand. Shame on ME!!! Mish - you rock my crafting world. And, I think you are an over the top mom. You do so many wonderful things for your little gals. The post with the special strawberry breakfast you served up in a fashionable style is still one of my faves. Just because we cut a few corners now and then, does not make us less of a person. Those who think otherwise need to go dunk their homemade oreos in their homemade cocoa, topped with their homemade marshmallows. By the time they are done, I'll have had mine, read a book to my kiddos, and stamped 3 cards!

Cheri said...

Really? You like pork rinds? Oh girl. . . you just gave me some good ammunition! I tried to get my hubby to eat them and he was horrified! Now I can tell him that Mish loves them too. . . :-) And really, don't all the BEST domestic divas love them?!?!?

resmith said...

You go girl! What is that say, "If you can't say anything nice don't say it at all".
I love you blog and what tips you give all of us to make our life easier!
I want to thank for all that you do!
Keep it up!

Jessie said...

Love your blog! Keep up the wonderful job!! You rock!!

Barbara Axmacher said...

Way to call out the negative blogger. I agree with so many of the others posters - shortcuts are for everyone and allow us time to spend with our families and crafting. I wouldn't change a thing.

I've made these cookies the long way and love that you've given me a shortcut. Tthey are the best ... and you are too!

Paula said...

WAIT A MINUTE! (looks around)...nope no amish around here! and I'm pretty darn sure the amish use cool whip too! LOL... Keep up with the inspirational recipes...if you and your family like them, that's all that REALLY matters...and pssst...I love it when you share your recipes and the yummy photos along with the paper crafting...brings me back EACH AND EVERY DAY! Mish, don't let the clowns bring ya down! Now what did I do with that Velvetta?.....I've got a hankering for nachos...how'd THAT happen?

patriciad said...

Hey Anonymous: It's called www.marthastewart.com. Go over there and give HER a piece of your feeble mind. HA.

Mary Sara P. said...

You Go Girl! People never cease to amaze me with their negativity and there is no place in my world for it. Good for you for posting it and calling it out. You are amazing and I love and follow your blog all the time. I think it's wonderful to be able to use "short-cuts" when we can and I use them as well as bake from scratch when I can. I don't know but that looked pretty yummy to me.

{Lynn - that's me!} said...

Way to go, Michelle, for calling this person out! I don't "get" why people leave negative comments. Didn't their momma ever teach them that if they don't have something nice to say, they shouldn't say anything???

Chris said...

I have no idea what cool whip is as we don't have it over here but that nasty person obviously doesn't read your blog and see all about your canning and pickling and your beautiful recipe cards! You are my crafting Diva anyways!

Jennifer Bruce said...

You tell 'em' Mish!!! Some people are just so doggone rude! But, just so you know, I love your blog and everything you do!!! That "anonymous" comment leaver is just jealous!! LOL!!

Heather Jensen said...

Hey...I love Cool Whip on my coffee. It is a lot less calories than the whipping cream.
So did she think she was at Martha Stewarts blog?
Hey Annonymous, this is Martha Stewarts blog if you need more instrucitons or recipes:
http://everydayfoodblog.marthastewart.com/
Hugs,
Heather :)

Renee said...

Ok, sooo far behind and just now having a moment to catch up and I have to comment on someone's lack of courtesy.
First off, that person needs to check Betty Crocker! They have some of the most awesome cookies, all made from their mixes, AND a contest that you can win $thousands$ if you submit a winning recipe. Some even have Cool Whip in them...Ever tried Strawberry Dreams? Strawberry cake mix, Cool Whip and an egg? Drop on a sheet, bake 10 minutes and they are some of the bestest, gooeiest cookies you have ever had!:)
Second, that person apparently doesn't know how much work goes into growing your own veggies, canning and freezing that fresh produce, running a household with a hubby and 2 young girls, working...I know how much work that is and therefore, I don't do it. My fresh produce comes from Kroger's, or my Mom (who grows her own) and sometimes I'm pretty sure DCS could take the kids from the state of my house... Mish, you are the definition of Domestic Diva (watch out Martha!). Sticks and stones, that's how we're supposed to be...but sometimes you just gotta let that kindergartener out and have her say!
And a SMART domestic Diva always takes any shortcut that presents itself if it won't sacrifice on taste or quality, and Cool Whip and Toll House is NO sacrifice!
Love all your AWESOME ideas, you inspire everyday!:)

Priscilla Heistad said...

Seriously, some people need to get a life! Also, can I just say that "only" a mom is a HUGE job. Huge. And the most important one. I hope anonymous gets his/her eggs from his/her own chickens!

You still inspire me, Mish.

Katherine said...

Oh, all of you ladies are so lovely, I for one am not such a nice person.

I really just have to say...
Who do you think you are?! How utterly judgmental and so outrageously RUDE! Domestic Diva? Since when is that a requirement for being an awesome mother? Not in my book.

I seem to remember that as a mom that our primary job is to care for and love our children. These young girls are some of the happiest and smilingest (yes, I know it's not a word) kids you could ever meet.

Last I heard, teaching your children to be good, honest and giving is much preferred over teaching them to be self righteous, arrogant and shallow.

Anonymous, get a life!

Anne said...

"If you don't have something to say, don't say anything at all!"

LOOOOOOOVE your blog, Mish!

Sharon said...

Hi Mish:
For the record---these peanut butter cups are to die for! They have been my girls' FAVORITES since they were little all the way thru high school and college, and their sport teams and beyond( Not to mention all their friends and parents! One of their friends said' it changed her life" hahahah-they have since graduated from college-UCLA and LMU, and still request the cute cookies.
I think you and your designs are fabulous-thank you for always sharing!

CindyLee said...

Don't dis' the cookie! We've been making these for years! These cookies are not only my families favorite but the neighbors as well. I HATE making cookies, but with these my daughters and I have a blast. There's always a scramble to see who will get to unwrap (and taste test) the reese cups!!
It's about the memories not the process! Feel sad for this commenter, because my guess is, I don't think they have realized this yet!

mamichelle said...

Why do people have to be mean?!!! Get a life anonymous!!

Diane Jaquay said...

As someone who just ordered a bunch of boxed mixes from King Arthur so that I'll be able to whip up some easy goodies at Christmas, I fully support your right to use Cool Whip or whatever other dang shortcut you choose! You GO girl!

Kim H. said...

I wish I saw this earlier this week. What an unbelievably self absorbed person. I love your blog, I love your talent and creations, and I love being able to spend time with my family. I don't have to be anyone but me... A Mom who loves her kids. I still can't believe someone would be so rude and self rightous. You are awesome - at everything you do!!!

Mrsro said...

I JUST had to comment on this...sounds like whoever wrote that is nasty and cranky from spending too many hours in the kitchen being a "domestic diva" slaving over their "homemade" cooking!! WHATEV......Your blog is AWESOME

LB Designs said...

OMG! some people just don't get it. If you don't have anything nice to say...don't say anything at all. How pathetic and typical that a mean person posts "anonymously".

Ashley Nguyen Newell said...

WOW! She's like school in July...NO CLASS! :)

I would like to mention that I love Slim Jims (I don't even think that's real meat!), nacho cheese, and I've NEVER made lasagna or meatballs from scratch!

Camille McNatt said...

You are an amazing mother and talented artist, NO ONE can be a perfect MoM!! She must have all the time in the world to cook from scratch. My mom always told me that when people are negative towards you that means their jealous. :)

Camille,

Anonymous said...

Honestly you should take class lessons from your friend Melis. You would never this on her blog.

Suzanne J Dean said...

You tell 'em! I love negative anonymous commenters too--it makes me enjoy what I'm doing EVEN MORE, lol! All that matters is love, that is most important and I'm sure your family knows that!

Bah humbug to the nasties and holiday hugz to you & your family! (and yuummmmmmmm..mmmm I'm having coolwhip in my hot cocoa right now, hee hee)

hugz,
Suzanne J Dean

Pam said...

Oh gosh - pork rinds are my guilty pleasure! Guess what? When you're a grown up, you get to choose. As long as it's not illegal or immoral, who cares? Lighten up, Frances (as my husband would say).
