Wow, she dropped a ton of weight since last week when meeting Mario Batali with Brown Eyed Baker.  Photoshop or pre-gain photos?

I'm going to say very calculated photo angles. They're all of her face.

I'm not saying she needs to turn into ELR and post twee pictures of herself making "oops" faces over plates of butter and bacon but Jessica, honey, it's time for a new About picture. YOU LOOK LIKE A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PERSON.

No shit!  My jaw literally dropped when I saw that pic of her and her husband.

People have mentioned that her husband is a lot older than she is but if that pic is any indication I say they appear to be around the same age.

clever angles indeed–and so much photo shopping! huge pores are GONE

I really like her, but I agree, clever photoshopping and angles. It's all about the angles. Those pictures have major filters applied to them and the one from the Brown Eyed Baker thing is much more natural.

With that said, I could never eat the way she says she does — and honestly? I highly doubt she eats most of the recipes she posts. She'd be a walking vat of brown butter and bacon at this point.

I kept debating it and debating it, but finally…

I unsubscribed from her.

I used to like her, and so I kept hoping it would get back to the way it used to. But the girl really has sold out, and it's so sad because her blog used to be great. But now, every post starts one of three ways:

–"Here, I made you this"

–"There are vegetables on my blog!"

–"Oh look, bacon!"

 

And the recipes are repeats of old recipes, or adaptations of old recipes. (No, Jessica, it's not a new banana bread recipe if all you did was take your old recipe and add bacon. That's called recycled content.) And three "recipe round up" posts in a row for Memorial Day?!? Um, can we say click whroe? Her readers just eat it up, clicking the links and giving her page views. It's dishonest, and I'm happy to say I'm not one of those gullible readers of hers anymore. There are so many other, better blogs out there.

+1 above.  I'm unsubscribing as well.  Her contrived blog voice just grates on me every time I see a post from her in my reader.

I'm not unsubscribing (mostly because her pictures are so pretty) but I wish she'd make something without bacon.

What sucked me in to her blog was the crazy feta recipe and the layered Greek dip. I think I'm just hoping against hope she'll do more healthy recipes.

I refuse to believe that avocado-frosted brownies actually taste good. They easily win as the most disgusting-sounding thing she has ever posted. I can't blame her husband for not being excited.

I actually haven't been to this blog for a while, but used to be a religious reader. 

There came a point where I would scroll through recipe after hideous recipe and it all looked so disgusting and fake. Like, who would actually eat that/make that? Especially to bring over for friends or something. Like those "crack" brownies would surely not be popular with "normal" people that aren't obsessed with Pinterest. And like her crazy "marshmallow smore" margarita or something, like who the heck would waste their time making something so weird? 

She annoys me so much. And her photography is not good at all.

I am SO GLAD you brought up this post – I was actually trying to find it earlier but couldn't. I am done with her. Those stupid "Tuesday things" posts…here, let me write the next half dozen for you:

 - Teehee, look at this unhealthy cookie/candy/cake I've been eating for every meal!

 - Who else is TOTALLY obsessed with this tv show?

 - Look at the lip gloss/eye shadow/heels I'm SO into! I'm just like Carrie Bradshaw, with my sparkly makeup and impractical shoes!

 - Bacon

 - Link to Thought Catalog

 - Look at the latest asshole move my husband pulled that I'm trying to show as omg charming because he bought me something after

 - Did I mention that we went out to dinner and he ate an entire cow, a wheel of cheese, and drank a keg of beer and STILL ordered dessert after?

 - Another link to Thought Catalog because they are the great thinkers of our time

 - An Instagram of some over-sugared coffee drink that I totes only drank half of 'cuz coffee, ick.

 - Butter. More bacon.

The sad thing is, I didn't even need to look at her site to write this.

I think she just has this vision of herself as some Zooey-esque charming quirky gal when in reality she's…..anything but. JUST STOP.

Don't forget..

- I have been DROOLING over THIS (link to popular blogger friend) all WEEK!

I'd have more respect for her if she actually chose some amazing stuff from thousands of blogs that don't already get 100,000 hits a day and are BFF's from Blogher conferences or 'paid in full by company' trips to pimp products.

She chooses from the same group of bloggers all the time.

Shrug b***h, you nailed it. She has become almost as twee as Jenna. I'm over her.
