    Dude I like your stuff but I have to tell you that the mobile site is not very functional. I just tried making one of the recipes and I gave up and freelanced it halfway through because to get to the recipe I had to scroll through a bunch of writing… it kept closing on me and I had to expand it… there were a bunch of ads and reviews I don’t care about… it would be so much better if the recipe was just. There. When. You. Open. The. Page. I’m not trying to be a bitch… but think about it!

      Shoot! I’m so sorry you had such a bummer experience. This is the first time I’ve heard of someone struggling with the mobile site. Will definitely look into it – thanks for bringing up.
