I need to ask you guys a crucially important question.
I love to cook. I’m usually too busy blogging lazy to do much of it, but I enjoy it nonetheless.
However, I’m not some super-fancy blogger toiling away at 3 AM developing recipes and discovering new ways to use rare white truffles from the Croatian Black Forest.
(I’ve never even tried truffles, except for the chocolate kind, but I really think I would enjoy them.)
(Anyone up for taking me out to dinner at a place fancy enough to serve truffles?)
Most of the things I cook are simple, homey recipes that I’ve collected over the years, especially including recipes from my treasured family cookbook that my Mom made me for a wedding present.
Occasionally, I tweak recipes to make them healthier, tastier, or just plain saltier, but that’s usually as far as my kitchen creativity goes.
With that being said, though, I do feel like I’ve collected some fantastic dishes over the years, and would love to share them.
But I find myself conflicted.
a) my blog is already schizophrenic enough in it’s random variety of subjects (and lack thereof),
b) I’m not sure as to the etiquette when blogging about recipes that one didn’t create themselves,
c) I don’t know if you have any interest whatsoever in my measly cooking endeavors (or endeavours, for those of you that aren’t from around here – I really prefer the British spelling of that word. And of most words, really), and
d) Since many of these dishes are old classics, I’m deathly afraid that I will just be recycling material that’s been on the internet twenty dozen times already and you’ll all roll your eyes at my ridiculous unoriginality.
But in an act of rebellion to my conflicted self, I started secretly blogging a recipe here and there by putting them on a “page” instead of a “post”, and only publishing it to Pinterest.
Here are the three I’ve done so far (click on the photo to go to the recipe):
And here are the links to some recipes I’ve posted in the past:
Breastmilk Smoothies (For the BABY, not for you. Geesh.)
Hungarian Chicken Paprikash – one of my favorite dishes of all time.
Kitty Litter Cake (Hard to eat, but oh-so-good for the laughs)
So my all-important, life-altering question is this:
Do you have any interest in recipes, or do you come here to escape from all of the guilt heaped on by recipe, DIY, and home décor blogs?
(And, by the way, have no worries that I will start plaguing you with the latter two types of posts. I am in desperate need a home makeover, but I am clearly not gifted with the ability to carry it out.)
Would you like the variety of one or two random recipes a month, or would you prefer that I continue only in the endeavours (oh that feels so good) of subjects such as talking breast pumps, presidential christmas gifts or presidenim, and toenail art?
Your honest(!!) opinion counts. So give it, or I may start robocalling your house.
