Why do I have a blog? Sometimes when the creativity is lagging and I’m pressed for time I have to get back to my primary intentions. Though it may have begun as a kind gesture gifted from my brother-in-law, I’ve kept it up for six years for several specific reasons.1) I like that my favorite recipes are all in one place and I can access them in the grocery store when I need to buy ingredients.
2) Instead of settling into a routine of the same old recipes, I’m always looking for and trying something new.
3) If even one person is blessed by a recipe I thought good enough to pass on, then my time and work is worth it.
I don’t operate under the false idea that I’m a better cook than anyone else but I do get excited about food and am at my most serene when I’m cooking (to be correct, I mean cooking when the kids aren’t around). Recently I made, slightly tweaked and shared a recipe from a Philly bakery for almond chocolate chip cookies. They made me happy and I couldn’t wait to share them so you could enjoy them as much as I have been. Sharing excellent content is amazing, and I want to do it whether the recipe is something I developed or not.
I realized then that there are likely so many family recipes, either your own or copied down from moms, dads, or grandparents, that deserve a permanent home on the internet. I had a thought – if you know me personally or if you read this blog I’d like you to think about getting involved. If you email me a family recipe or one that you make over and over and can’t get enough of, I will make it as written or with a slight tweak here or there, and post it in your name with my “how to” photography. That way it will always be available to you and you can email the link to family and friends.
What do you think?
Email me the recipe at email@example.com. This can be a help to you and will definitely be a help to me, as instead of getting ideas from magazines or other sites, I can work with time-tested, family loved recipes that are sure to please.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
