Changing Things Up....Just A Bit

So I have been in a blogging slump. Partly due to the stresses of every day life but partly because I just haven’t had the same passion in my blog when I started out a few years ago. In an attempt to freshen up my blog and make it more fun for me (and hopefully you as well) I wanted to share something that truly interests me and that I enjoy talking about.

So what do I have an interest in and a passion for…..cooking and entertaining. I seriously LOVE IT and get such joy out of cooking a romantic meal for just my husband, a big lasagna dinner for my family, cooking with my sister & family, or hosting a party for my friends with a great theme and lots of fun food!!! I think recently I realized how much I miss event planning, and I think this would be a good compromise and outlet for my ideas.

I know we have a food blog (see link to right) but I am thinking of putting down some of my favorite things about cooking & entertaining on my blog on a weekly basis. I may feature fun tips, budget friendly recipes, quick recipes, family-style recipes, recipes for parties, or even some of my favorite serving dishes, utensils or party ideas.....this is something that I REALLY adore and want to share with you on my blog. Hopefully you will enjoy it as well! By the way, this isn’t going to be ALL my blog is about, just another part of what I want to share and who I am.

Besides posting about the things above, I will also rate the recipes I post in different categories with 1 being the lowest/least and 5 being the highest/most for those categories.

Cooking Level: 1 = anyone can do it; 5 = may need a helper
Quickness: 1 = quicker then a box of mac and cheese; 5 = get comfy, this may take awhile
Cost: 1 = very budget conscious; 5 = a bit of a splurge
Ingredients: 1 = you just need a basket; 5 = may need a couple carts

So you get the idea. The first post will officially come tomorrow and I will post whenever I get new ideas or something fun to talk about!! Also, look for new food related features on my blog. I hope you will enjoy this new feature and PLEASE let me know if there are any topics you would like to read about!!
