I have gotten a lot of questions of why I decided to stop posting waffle and pancake recipes as well as my once a year recipe. The truth is I posted a year’s worth of pancake and waffle recipes. I could have kept going and created new and strange waffles. I was running out of ideas and the more recipes I posted, the slightly stranger and weirder they became. Perhaps later on I’ll add new recipes but for now it was a perfect time to end. I was moving, I haven’t been eating too many waffles lately and it was getting stale. I also don’t see myself ever becoming a food or recipe blogger.
As someone with a degree in health and 16 credits in nutrition classes I learned quite a bit about what is healthy and what is not. It is different than the blogging world “healthy”. At my house we aren’t eating strange foods you can only obtain at the highest shelf of trader joes. We are happy with regular peanut butter vesus super almond deluxe. We are happy eating eggs and toast versus oatmeal. We are happy eating simple recipes that take about 5 minutes to make. We would rather go out to eat a few times a week then buy 15 dollar jars of peanut butter or shop at high end grocery stores.
Sure we experiment in the kitchen sometimes (see this dessert pizza). Literally we just added ½ cup cocoa powder to normal pizza dough and topped with peanut butter…but we don’t cook fancy and gourmet recipes. Let alone go into the kitchen and create new recipes.
If I want to cook a brand new recipe (fat chance) then I’ll probably google “easy/simple and quick recipe for ______”.
A while ago I thought I could fashion some interesting and creative food posts but then quickly realized that isn’t for me. The only way my food looks decent most of the time is through 5 or 6 instagram filters and the blur technique.
So yes, while I enjoy eating and would consider myself a “foodie” while eating at restaurants I don’t enjoy cooking and cooking fancy foods. So in reality I don’t have much to share.
Questions for you:
Do you enjoy cooking? Baking? Being in the kitchen?
I enjoy being at the fridge and would rather eat cold leftovers then take time to cook a brand new fancy dish.
