Beloved Guinea Pigs 

As a Thank You to all our beloved Guinea Pigs who've sampled our food and given us important feedback on the recipes, we're creating a BlogRoll just for you.

Well, those of you who have blogs, anyway, and don't mind being linked from here.

Most of our guinea pigs were drawn from colleges around here. Contrary to popular belief, college students will not eat "just anything". They can be pretty picky eaters, and they know what they like to eat.

That means they aren't likely to discuss Food Porn[1] on their blogs the way we do here. They may not even talk about the Cracked Cauldron in their blog at all.

That's not the point.

We like these people, we've made friends with them, and they like our baked goods and soups. These people have bravely, willingly, eaten food we give them, trusting it to be at least edible. They've even eaten things they normally dislike, just because we gave it to them. And when it was a disaster, they still tried the next thing we offered.

How can you top that?

We couldn't.

So, instead, we're going to link their blogs and let you get to know these people, too. Aren't you the least bit curious about the sort of people who will eat something unknown just because I ask them to?

If I've ever shoved an amorphous brown lump at you and asked you to taste it and you write a blog that I don't already know about, tell me, and I'll add you to the roll.

Yes, it counts if you were given something at the OU Medieval Faire last year (orange cinnamon rolls, Scottish Eggs, Banbury Tarts, or one of several loaves of bread). We'll be at MedFaire again this year (with or without our own booth - we're working on that), and you can sample more goodies.

MedFaire isn't the only place we've distributed our goodies, so if you sampled any of our goodies anywhere (mostly around Oklahoma City, but we shipped some off to others, too) - and you have a blog! - let us know the URL of your blog and we'll add you, too.

And if you don't have a blog, what are you waiting for?

[1]HeHe! We were sent Food Porn Star buttons by some of our Guinea Pigs. I think being a Food Porn Star is much better than being any other kind of star.
