A Little Bit Of Nice

Deborah Dowd of Play With Food is, as I have previously said a regular commentator here. Recently I published her Sparkling Punch Recipe which I stole from Play With Food with her permission of course. In that post I made a comment about Deborah not being Jewish and thus her blog was essentially not a "kosher" blog. I did it because the recipe appeared right with a "shrimp" recipe and meant it as a compliment.

Deborah then commented on the post writing:

Teddy,

Glad you don't old my not being Jewish against me. An equal opportunity blogger...

Deborah
When I read that I assumed that Deborah was offended by the remark about not being kosher so I immediately wrote her and apologized and removed what I thought to be the offending sentence. The following is what Deborah wrote back:
Teddy,

Absolutely no offense taken! I took what you said in the manner in which it appeared. No need to be politically correct. I am thrilled if you and your readers can find not only recipes but ideas and attitude from my blog, and I am excited to do the same from yours. Also, do not apologize- I respect that your faith is part of your life and part of your blog. It is very refreshing to see someone who does not apologize for their faith, especilly in a public forum like a blog. We both worship the God of Abraham, so don't sweat it.

And since I have heard there is such a thing as Jewish guilt don't spend another moment on this- I am thrilled to have your readers visit my blog and I hope they find things they can use within the constraints of a kosher diet, and your blog is still prominently linked as one I visit daily.

Deborah
Thanks Deborah. But one small thing you got wrong. Guilt? Me? Hah! (You see I know it is always my fault. That is what makes it so easy!)

Teddy,
Thanks for posting my response (and my sloppy mis-spelling)!My favorite thing about blogging is being part of a large international and diverse community that daily demonstrates how much we all have in common!

P.S. I am going to read more about kosher foods- I didn't realize shrimp was a no-no.

Hi Teddy, thanks for your kind comment on my blog. I'm really enjoying your blog (as showed by the link), I will have to try a few of the recipes out. I love to cook, but only when I'm in the mood.

Please keep making my mouth water with these lovely recipes.
