My Last Post?

Hello all to the two people out there still checking the blog for new recipes :)

It has probably become apparent over the last several months that my enthusiasm for posting new and exciting recipes has been waning. The land of food blogs has come a long way since I started back in 2008 and I haven't had the energy or time to keep up. New blogs pop up everyday and everyone who's anyone now has a light box to shoot their food, attends food photography classes and writes witty commentary to accompany their recipes.

So from here on out I will essentially be posting links to the recipes that I have made. I still cook dinner most weeknights and enjoy giving dinner parties large and small so I have recipes waiting to be shared. But I believe that for the time being it is better if I leave it at that. I think it will be a sense of relief to not be thinking about how to photograph my food before I eat it, or to make sure that I am making new meals with regularity so that I can post on a schedule.

Thank you to all of you who have read the blog over the years. I am keeping the blog address online so please feel free to continue to use the archives as well as check back if you want for my recipe links. (I guess I am essentially creating my own personal Pinterest board?) Maybe one day I will return to the land of blogs :)

Good for you, but sad to see it end. I enjoy your blog and think of mine pretty much the same way- mostly a collection for myself to look up things I made and liked! I need to make those lava cakes again :)

I will miss you!! :( (Not that my own blog is flourishing these days, lol.)

This is very sad, but I understand. You should only blog and post if you love it, and it shouldn't have to be a chore. I think your food has always looked fantastic and your blog is still very much appreciated.

Goodluck with everything.
