For those who have forgotten what the previous blog looked like, here is a screenshot:
I dropped the ball on updating the blog regularly, because the entire task was very daunting: while trying to cook an entire meal on a work night in my hungry and exhausted state, I need to take photos of every step of the preparation &cooking process? After uploading the photos from the camera to the computer to the blog, I found writing the actual blog post very difficult: I never use measurements when I cook, but when writing each post in traditional recipe format, I must include the actual measurement for every ingredient?
The entire task from start to finish was very difficult.
Here is my soluition moving forward:
- No more step-by-step photos directions. Text only.
- No more recipes in traditional 'recipe' format. This means; no exact measurements, no bullet list of ingredients, no enumerated list of instructions.
As I always remind people, cooking is not about exact steps and measurements. Cooking is about using some information (whether its a cooking technique, or dinner meal idea) and adding your own twist and creativity to your dish.
Thus, it is contradictory for me to post step-by-step directions how to cook, and how much of each ingredient.
My blog entries will now be in log or "diary" form.
- Lastly, I need to keep in mind that this blog is supposed to be for 'fun'. =)
