New Year - New Format

Tags:

It's been just about a year since I started this blog, and as I hoped, my skills have vastly improved. I'm cooking better, I'm eating better, I'm saving money, and I'm learning a lot about food.

However, I haven't been posting nearly as much as I'd like. I think it's mostly because creating an entire recipe post, with photos and instructions, takes a few hours. Posting one of those a week has been difficult, especially when it may be months since I actually made the recipe.

I'd also like to talk about the things I'm doing today, not 4 months from now. If I find a new recipe and try it out, I'd like to quickly show it off, and invite you to try it yourself.

I'd also like to start collecting bits of food knowledge: When to buy things for freshness and lowest cost, how to store them, how to cook them, how to prepare them. So much food can be made without regard to a recipe, just preparing a bunch of different foods and combining them together. A nice egg scramble with mushrooms and onions doesn't require a recipe, it requires cooking and knowledge that these things go together.

So, I'm changing up the format of this blog a bit: The blog will contain all the posts as I make them, with some new posts reporting on recipes I find around the Internet. Full recipe writeups will still be produced, but likely at a slower pace, and organized alphabetically. I also hope to open a space for me to keep food knowledge soon, and I'll post updates to those pages to the blog as they happen.

Here's to another productive year of cooking and learning!
