I am not a chef. I am not a baker. I have not been to culinary school. I am a husband and dad who enthusiastically enjoys cooking and loves to barbecue. More than that, I like to create, try to copy, or otherwise tinker with food and recipes. Nuff said...

I'd like to just ask you to stop hating for a moment and listen. I know 4, possibly 5 of the people you mentioned as being 'fake'. We live together in an apartment complex for Section 8/Low-income housing because we are either elderly or infirm. Yes, you noticed changes in Feb. I was attempting to turn over a new leaf. My little sister and mother of 2 was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. It is advanced. She WILL die in a matter of months. I just...wanted to be a better person, for her. She is religious and naturally did not like a name with 'Demon' in it, and when I had time I changed it-and myself. The medals-friends gave them in an attempt to cheer me up. No, it doesn't make me feel better or good about myself. All I can think of is how I will never cook for her again. I'm sorry friends awarding me medals offended you, and hope that you being banned from here will give you time to reflect upon treating people you don't know so harshly.

Hi Skeeter -- thanks for the note. The right contact for support is via the "Help" tab up top on every page, or just jot us a note at support @ bigoven.com. I'm going to remove that comment from my wall due to the private nature, but will investigate.

As you have probably noticed, the site founder/owner has seen fit to remove your offensive review from my recipe. Being insulting and verbally abusive isn't tolerated here, which is why I asked you to rethink your accusations. Let's help keep this place a informative, and moreover friendly cooking haven!
