Wow! Thanks for this post! I belong to a brunch group of 12 women . Each of us takes one Saturday of one month to have the others over for brunch. This post has given me a couple of years of ideas!!!
I agree with Reba. I love, love your column and recipes—the best food blog I’ve found and even though I have hundreds of cookbooks, I find myself often going to your website for recipes and ideas. Today’s brunch piece was so cluttered with ads I couldn’t tell which was yours and which was ads. I know you have to make money from ads but I hope you can get this under control so we can all continue to enjoy your great work.

Thanks, Patti, for taking the time to leave a comment. I have forwarded these comments to our ad agency. I'm not sure if they are doing something different but we will figure it out.
Those are lovely ideas! (And I faced the same issue as Reba Eich regarding the ads)
Perfect timing! I'm starting to think about my Easter menu...and maybe if I make one of your magnificent brunch dishes, my boys will get their carcasses out of bed and come early for breakfast 🙂

I understand the necessity for ads on your wonderful website, but for some reason, today’s brunch ideas edition is so full of misc. ads it is very difficult to read. Continual pop-up ads. Is this possibly just my e-mail or phone causing this
I thoroughly enjoy your website and look forward to every new recipe; I’ve tried and loved many of them. Thanks!

Hi Reba, thanks for taking the time to write. You’re right, we do have to advertise as this is the way we cover the costs of running a website as well as making a living. But, there shouldn’t be any pop-up ads covering the content and making it hard to read. I will pass this on to our advertising agency.
