Hey there! I’m Emily, and for me, food is a borderline obsession. All aspects of food. I love shopping, preparing, cooking or baking, and most importantly: eating! This blog is my opportunity to celebrate all things food.
Alrighty, prepare yourself: rant time. One of my biggest pet peeves in food blogs is needing to scroll through an entire blog post just to get to the recipe. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t want to read the story or find out more about someone’s beloved or diligently created recipe. In fact, I love learning more about the “why” behind people’s recipe and food. Not to mention the food porn… I mean, photos… that come in the body of the story. However, before I get there, I want to check in on the recipe to see if I have all the ingredients, the perceived difficulty, and equipment needed. And I also want it at the top, so that once I have started with a recipe, and the page inevitably crashes, I do not have to wait for the ENTIRE story and photos to reload before I get back to the pertinent information. Which of course for me typically happens at a critical moment of preparation… enter a trash mouth, banging pots and an elevated blood pressure.
My challenge to myself and commitment to you will be leave the story off, and to bring the recipe to the top. I may blather on afterward about the recipe, give some hints, tips or tricks, and add lots of photos; but I will always work to put the recipe first.
