Waffle Pizzas and Celebrating My 200th Decline

Two years of ‘blogging’, 532 posts, and today we are classic up the joint with these waffle pizzas and celebrating my 200th decline from Foodgawker! Foodgawker, Tastespotting, Tasteologie and others are sites worth drooling over if you are looking for inspiration or just looking. They update a large selection of new recipe posts daily linking back to original recipes from bloggers like myself. Needless to say, I felt that 200 declined posts was a pretty monumental event in my food blogging career.

Grab your party hats and kazoos so we can get party started.

Now, I am not going to be the food blogger that boo’s and hisses over the food p*rn sites (though, I have whined about the delay with Tastespotting the other foodp*rn site lately… I need to remember it’s summer, and we all get busy) . Foodgawker and others have been kind to me and my accepts exceed my declines. The traffic that you get from the sites certainly helps and I always get a kick when I recognize a friends dish while perusing today’s posts. But really, this party wouldn’t be as fun if I had to make something pretty to celebrate accepts.

How do I celebrate? With these classy personal pizzas – that’s how! Quick, fat kid friendly, and full of weeknight awesomeness. I’m sure there’s a part of my bad foodie self that would love to be offended at these – but really, I can’t help it. These were fun, tasty, and satisfied my hungry belly after a long day of work.



Do you have a post you feel was wrongfully declined from a food p*rn site while some other overexposed odd angled shot of black coffee sat at on the home page all day? If so post a link – lets share some love.

And, if you really want to post your hard little labors of love, check out Tastestopping! They will take what those other sites have shoved aside with open arms.

Found your post on Foodbuzz. It's nice to find others who have been given the stamp of rejection! I love that you are celebrating!

I don't let the rejection deter me. Since there seems to be no rhyme or reason to what makes the cut, I just submit everything!! Some of my best pics have been denied (and I was like WTF?!?) and other pics that I thought were crap and would never get accepted end up on page 1. I've just given up trying to solve the mystery.

WAFFLE PIZZA, omg this is such a great idea! The whole food porn decline thing had me cracking up too. Personally, I haven't even bothered in months to submit anything. Your photography is awesome though - let me know if you ever figure out the secret to what they accept because after years of doing this also I have yet to determine that!

Kita, you are amazing. Cheers to 200 declines! I think your photography is aces. As long as your readers are drooling, that's all that matters. Tasteologie is a new one to me, how come I didn't know about that one?

Congratulations on two years of incredibly delicious recipes! Lets hope there are many more to come! I'm with you on the Foodgawker thing, I pretty much stopped sending in pics, just to stop the rejection...sigh
