Blog Comments to Expect When You Post a Recipe Online

Looking for a laugh this morning? Well, The Toast made a list of the types of commenters who put their opinions on recipes online. From the shameless substituters to the chronic oversharers, the list of comments is hilariously accurate. If you've ever tried to share a recipe of your own creation online, you definitely know what this blog is talking about.

Even if you haven't shared your own recipes online, you've likely seen a few of The Toast's examples in the comment section of someone else's recipe. Heck, you've probably seen all 23 of them at one point or another.

Here are some of the best from the list:

"I didn't have buttermilk, so I just poured baking soda into a container of raspberry yogurt. It tasted terrible."

"I just started Paleo yesterday, and I'm wondering if there's a way to make this without the ingredients."

"I'm actually a supertaster, so I can't eat anything that isn't licking the salt off the top of saltines; will this recipe work for me?"
