Lately I’ve had a bunch of opportunities to chat it up with my internet besties about some of my favourite recipes. I’ve received a few e-mails from sweet readers telling me that they miss my little ol’ recipe blog. And guess what? I miss it, too. I really do.
I never intended for it to go by the wayside. I never sat down and decided that I would stop posting recipes and keeping up with that little corner of the interweb. But, life happened. More specifically, Evalyn happened. After she was born, I had a break from cooking. We had my mother here for the first week, Evan’s mother here for the second week and my church brought meals for us the third week. Not to mention I had stocked up enough frozen meals to sustain a small country – which meant I didn’t really have to do a whole lot of cooking for the first 2-3 months of motherhood.
Which, I might add, was ah-may-zing.
By around the 6-8 week mark, though, I was ready to start getting back into my kitchen, so I gradually did. And since then, I have been cooking. Much to your surprise, I’m sure. I cook and/or bake on an almost daily basis and I do my best to try a new recipe or two every week or so.
But? The thought of snapping photos, writing up recipes and steps, and keeping track of what I’ve posted and haven’t posted? Daunting. Absolutely daunting. My meal prep is often done in the morning while Evalyn naps and the rest of the cooking is done here and there throughout the day whenever I get a chance. To remember to grab my camera for a shot of every step? Impossible. And, heck, I hardly find the time, energy, or motivation to keep up with this blog, that I just don't see myself getting back to Lucy’s Kitchen anytime in the near future. But, I do miss it.
Which is why I have decided, that after Evalyn’s birthday is over with and once I get myself settled into our new routine, I am going to try my darndest to start a weekly recipe feature here. On this blog.
Posting one recipe a week certainly doesn’t seem as daunting as keeping up with a regular, every day cooking blog. Besides? If I have nothing new to share, I will dig from my archives and pull out some of the old faithfuls.
So, friends, keep your eyes peeled – because this Crazy Kitchen Cooker is comin’ back at ya.
