I started this blog awhile ago for my own convenience. When I started I didn't have any pictures, just a bunch of recipe ingredients to make it easier when someone asked for a copy of a recipe (no more writing it out by hand, or missing an ingredient, or writing down the wrong measurement). It was also great for cooking when I was out of town. I could access my recipes from anywhere - my mom's house, the family reunion, or sometimes even pull it up quicker on the computer at home than I could find it digging through my recipe box.
I didn't tell anyone about my blog for a long time because I didn't want them to get on, see 5 whole recipes on here and say, "Wow, Whitney, that's great. Whoop-de-doo. So what. You typed up a few recipes." My goal was to eventually get my whole recipe box on here. Then I discovered how much I like to have the pictures of my recipes too.
I have a lot of recipes I've already posted without pictures. I am in the process of going back and trying to add pictures for every recipe. Somehow it makes them new all over again. I figure you are more likely to try a new recipe when you can see a picture of it instead of just reading through the list of ingredients. At least that's how I am.
I have actually been going back and adding pictures to a lot of my past posts for awhile now. But nobody knows it unless you are searching through my archives. So I have started re-posting recipes as I have a new picture to go with it. Enjoy.
