Recipes can be made so many different ways, thats what makes cooking fun. I apppreciate that you both feel there is a right and wrong to cooking. Hey everyone has an opinion, it’s just a shamed people think their opinion is the only one. I guess when people aren’t happy they are down and out about everything in their life. Enjoy the sandwich your way :slight_smile:

You seem to have taken affront to my comment that your recipe isn’t a typical Monte Cristo. There is no need to get your knickers in a knot. I certainly know that recipes can be changed however you want, but that doesn’t change what a recipe is typically.

Nice one. I just wondered where they got the name Monte Cristo. First time I’ve heard this.

After researching for the origin of the name, sadly, no one seems to know.

Kitchen Witch, I sure see where you got your name. Who are you to call people REAL cooks, just because they don’t make a recipe the way you feel it should be made. Wow I cannot believe that you can say someone is not mature. I see you on here putting people down. Yes, you have helped people too, but I would never ever think of telling someone hey that recipe isn’t made right. But you can and thats great for you. Also I do participate here just not like you do. I am not spamming, I am sharing and I have had many people appreciate that. I have plenty of faith in my blog and joining other sites do help our sites, but thats not why I am here. But thanks for knowing everything again :slight_smile:

OK, have a nice night!!!

Another website I belong to (unrelated to food) quickly bans people for personal attacks.

“Kitchen Witch, I sure see where you got your name.”
This is what I was referring to.
