I started this blog less than 2 months ago. Way back then, I would never have called myself a ‘recipe writer’. I was certainly a practiced home cook, accustomed to creating my own dishes. But I was definitely not a recipe writer. My measurements and process were haphazard, virtually indescribable, purely a matter of instinct and experience. Starting this blog has forced me to slow down, reflect on my decisions, and be more purposeful with my cooking. And I’m thankful for that. Thank you, blog. Thank you.
As I’ve become more entrenched in the foodie blogosphere, I’ve started to notice recipe contests; something I’d neither noticed nor considered in those ancient pre-blog days. As I said, I wasn’t a recipe writer then. I am now.
So, today, I submitted my first recipe to a contest. I can’t tell you what it is, for fear that I’ll jeopardize my chances. But , I can give you a few clues…
A prize-worthy recipe? I don’t know, but it was certainly a win in our books!
