Domestic Misfits Unite On New Website Thestandupgourmet.com
Self-Proclaimed Domestic Misfit, Betty Home-Mocker Makes Her Online Debut on December 1, 2010
Formerly a television producer, Betty traded in her Call Sheets for Cheat Sheets, developing quick reference guides for spices and herbs, liquid and weight measurements and more, to help her followers shave aggravation off their domestic experience. Betty’s extensive Explanation Station Page, featuring both the Cheat Sheets and the Misfictionary, a 700+ word domestic dictionary, is a must see for anyone embarking on household chores.
By clicking on The Recipe Box, Misfits can check out delicious recipes for the beginner, intermediate or advanced culinary skill levels. If a Misfit is not sure where they fall on the domestic skill scale, they can take The Standup Gourmet Misfit Quiz. This 50 question, multiple-choice quiz will calculate Misfit skill levels, enabling them to better maneuver the website.
For those Misfits who need a break from their daily grind, there’s Betty’s Blog, which features her acerbic view on everyday life. Her random stream of consciousness never sleeps with monthly articles entitled, “Curb Your Damn Dog!” and “The Mirror is Your Friend: Just Say No to Spandex!” Upcoming articles to look forward to will be “The Gout: A Family Tradition” and “Wake and Bake is Not a Toy!”
A visit to thestandupgourmet.com would not be complete without stopping by Cockamamy Corner to check out the Misfit’s Manual section. This series of how-to guides, such as Misfit’s Manual to Reading Recipes or Misfit’s Manual to Filling Concrete Cracks, among others, provides step-by-step, easy to follow instructions for the domestically challenged. For those Misfits who are interested in saving money, they would be wise to embrace the tips and household recipes found in Frugal Factory. Betty encourages her Misfits to be Fantastically Frugal because every penny counts!
If that is not enough, Betty and The Standup Gourmet Misfit Crew provide product recommendations and taste tests based on her very own 5-Star ratings guide, ranging from the best (★★★★★ or Mockalicious)
