0 Celebrating Recipe #100 in Style... with a Blog Contest!
It's hard to believe that this blog has almost reached recipe #100. That means I've created & cooked almost one hundred original recipes since this blog's inception back in mid-July of 2007! Can you believe it?!
If you consider that every recipe is first scribbled down, then made from scratch in my test kitchen, taste-tested, sometimes revised, edited, & then posted on this blog, it's not hard to see that a lot of time & effort (as well as love & care) has gone (& still goes!) into the entire process! It also explains why recipes aren't posted in rapid-fire succession; if they were, you can only imagine the weekly grocery bills & the army of people I'd have to invite over to eat all of that food! Hehe.
Our fridge is usually bursting with fresh ingredients as is. It always seems like it's "time to cook" at our place. ;) I couldn't delay the recipe creation process right now even if I wanted to, because otherwise there'd be a whole lot of perishables going bad in the fridge. ;)
Plus, right now, I've got a whole queue of future recipe ideas lined up one after another. My brain is overflowing with ideas, and frankly, it's been a real challenge to keep pace with the recipe-writing output. There's a lot of rapid-fire cooking going on just to keep up with the flying sparks in the brain. ;)
Also, I figure that, at the moment, it's easier to just churn out new recipes every day, because it's actually a multi-purpose activity: With each snack, breakfast, lunch, &/or dinner I create, there's also a new recipe entry for the blog (and/or cookbook!). :) Sure makes the recipe-writing process go a heck of a lot faster when there's a practical purpose behind it all!
Anyhow, I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about how to celebrate reaching recipe 'numero 100.' It's only days away, and so I've decided to hold a contest to commemorate the occasion.
