Nice box, eh? We have two of these boxes in the kitchen cupboard. And they are full of recipes. Every now and then you need a reminder of why you started something. Like this food blog. I get questions all the time about this blog.
“Why did you start the blog?”
“How come there are no pictures of food?”
“Why don’t you have more recipes?”
- I was inspired by two books. One was a community fund-raiser cookbook where everyone shares a recipe and the book is sold as a fundraiser. The other book was a collection of Aunt Charlene’s recipes complied by her granddaughter after Charlene died. I thought to myself, hey when you’re gone your recipes are gone with you. So I started this blog.
- I cook. I am not a photographer. I’ve also made the conscious decision to not make this a for profit endeavor.
- When I have more time you’ll get more recipes.
The Boss and I were out for lunch and I got the following question:
“Why don’t you make that breaded chicken dish you made for the kids all the time that was breaded and baked, not fried?”
Then it hit me. I started a food blog with the intention of capturing recipes from the past in a place where they could live on and enjoyed by others.
Did I mention I have two boxes of recipes?
