Today’s post is a little different. Pamela from Brooklyn Farm Girl nominated me to continue the Writing Process Blog Tour and today I am here to share a little about why I blog about food. I’ve also nominated three fabulous bloggers to continue the tour, so make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom to see who I nominated.
I started reading blogs regularly around six years ago. The first food blog I read was Annie’s Eats and to this day Annie’s blog is still one of my favorites. I love that she shares recipes that are relatively easy and always produce great results. I remember when I first started reading her blog, each week I would anxiously await a new post and couldn’t wait to try out her new recipe in my own kitchen. For many years, I read blogs, cooked, baked and developed my own recipes, but never shared them with anyone. Eventually I started my own blog in order to share my recipes with others, and now I am here sharing with you today.
(1) What am I working on? I’ve been working on a bunch of new recipes that you will love. We are heading into my favorite season on the blog. The fall and winter is my favorite time on the blog because everyone loves cooking and baking during that time of the year. I love the change of the seasons because there is always something new.
I use fresh, seasonal and organic ingredients whenever possible. I want my readers to be able to head to the grocery store, purchase fresh seasonal produce and go home and make my recipes. I love a balance of healthy recipes and sweet treats. But most of all, I love creating easy yet impressive recipes that everyone will love.
(2) How does my work differ from others of its genre? Food blogging is a wide-open field of so many fabulous bloggers. I am really honored to be among such a wonderful group of people. The thing that I love most about developing recipes is that every single one is different. Every recipe developer has their own unique inspiration for the recipes that they develop, whether it means altering the combination of flavors, making the dish healthier or simply creating an entirely new recipe. I strive to create and share recipes that are different and that my readers will love.
(3) Why do I write what I do? This one is easy. I love food and I love sharing my recipes with others.
(4) How does your writing process work? To be honest, writing is the most difficult thing about blogging, especially when you are a food blogger. I struggle with creative writing so the narrative is the most difficult part. I want my readers to focus on the recipe, the ingredients and the flavor. I know that people don’t visit my blog to necessarily read what I have to say, so I try to focus more on perfecting the recipe and sharing photos that will make you want to instantly dive in.
