WFMW: Online Shopping

wfmw

Okay so the topic today over at Rocks in my Dryer is online shopping.

I don’t buy too much online. I usually like to see what I am buying first. Especially when it comes to clothes, will it fit? Will it look right? Etc. Enter : Amazon; books. The books there you can sometimes flip through it online using the “search inside” feature. There are usually a bunch of reviews so you can get a pretty good idea of whether or not you will like it. They are cheaper than the local book store most of the time. If you buy directly from Amazon and spend over $25.00 you can also qualify for free super saving shipping.

Last year I bought my Make a Mix cookbook from them and more recently I blogged about buying more books here. Just 2 days ago my dh wanted to get me some stuff for Valentines day and I happened to mention this wonderful dessert cookbook I was eyeing. He told me to get it!

How to make Awesome Banana Nut Bread

I don’t have any pictures of the banana bread handy so this is a picture of some banana muffins. I am sure you all know what bread looks like. 😉 Well over Christmas I went searching for an awesome banana nut bread recipe. I stopped by Epicurious and clicked to see what bread had the best rating that was strictly banana nut bread, not one with streussel topping, not one with macadamian nuts, etc. The first one I came to that was such, I immediately clicked the reviews. There were 219 of them!

It is a good thing I like to actually read the reviews instead of just making sure a recipe has a lot of reviews and alot of stars/forks. I didn’t read all of them, maybe just 4 or 5 pages or so, out of 22. But it turns out about 3/4’s of the page down on page 5, “john from Franklin Ma” posted a great recipe he had and for the next 5 pages just about everyone quit reviewing the original posters banana bread and started reviewing his recipe!
