Brainstorms and Treats

It was brought to my attention the other day by my friend Ashley that compared to this blog that it seems I neglect my food blog. Well yes and no...I don't completely neglect it. I usually get a post up at least once a week..or every two weeks? So what is the reason for that? Well #1 it takes more effort. I can't just sit down and write a recipe. I have to test it first and include photos. I hate when recipes don't have a photo of the finished product. ( I am aware that I posted a cookie recipe without a photo the other day ). #2 You get less bank for your buck. In other words - I don't exactly have a following. I might have spent hours in the kitchen and shooting photos of a salad while my bread is in the oven and my pasta is over cooking on the stove only to find out that the lighting makes my food look like a Sizzler salad bar menu. ( Sizzler seriously needs to hire a new food photographer...or perhaps their food is really just that horrible. )

So after finally cooking my whole meal frantically trying to do a million things at once and also remembering to snap photos...get them uploaded to my computer, then post the recipes, the directions and etc. onto my blog... I don't usually get a comment. I still post anyways but it is a lot of work and I am kind of like a Dog. I need praise and encouragement...maybe even a treat?

I guess my hope one day is that someone just might try one of the recipes on my blog and give me a review. Whether it be good or bad, just to know someone tried your recipe would be awesome. Gosh I am such a sad, and pathetic being to beg for comments and reviews.

I am kind of brainstorming on some ideas for my food blog/ future youtube cooking show. I recently did a few "how to" videos involving cooking and thought it was pretty fun. I am not sure I would shoot it in the same format or not.

What do you guys think?

Oh and of course it would be all vegetarian :) Sorry carnivores.


  1. Hmmm....never thought about the youtube process. You might give that a try as others have been discovered that way. Post it on Facebook and I'll re-post it on mine and see what responses you get. :o)

  2. Youtube is a great idea! Especially since you make such great meals. I think a lot of people are afraid to eat vegetarian because they aren't aware of how much food you can make. They think it's all raw or steamed veggies.

  3. I understand why you have written less in your food blog. I know when I was writing more blogs and didn't get any comments I stopped. Figured no one was reading them, so why waste the time. Now I only write one once in a while. I think the Youtube idea is a good one, why not try it with your favorite recipe.

  4. I loved your VEDA how-to video and would totally love to see more of that kinda thing. I've been wanting to start cooking more, and focusing on healthy foods, so I'd totally try out your recipes!
