About a month ago, my mom asked if I had ever considered including some sort of index on my blog where people could easily locate recipes that I have posted.
I’ve been hesitant to do this. Partially because I still have some adolescent resistance to doing things my parents suggest, even if it’s something I had thought of myself.
Mainly, though, it’s because I don’t see this as a food blog. It’s a mix of things that I’m interested in sharing, and as it turns out, a lot of the time, I’m interested in food. (Probably because, as busy as grad school can get, I still have to eat.) But I have absolutely no culinary training. I’m completely inconsistent in the format I use to share recipes. In fact, a lot of the time, I just include a link to the original recipe. And the meals that I post that are my original creations are very loose and most certainly have not been tested beyond, “This is what I made for dinner and this is what I think I remember about how I did it.”
I like to think of it as being reflective of how I would converse with friends about cooking- sharing recipes, ideas, and improvisations. But the benefit of a blog is that it’s like having all of these conversations archived and available to refer back to. And having an index certainly makes that easier.
So, now you can find all the recipes and I’ve ever talked about right here, and there’s a handy Recipe Index tab on the home page. You can thank my mom.
