I am a self-taught cook and chef and now I am becoming a self-taught recipe writer and blogger. It is a process I am not going to kid you, there are times I want to quit. I feel like there are so many food bloggers out there who could care less about what I have to offer.
Once I get over my pity party I seem to always have this recipe I am making that I want to share with my friends and with people on social media. Whenever I post a recipe and my friends, family and my followers like what they see it makes me want to write more and create more simple recipes.
I find that people rather simplicity when it comes to cooking and not complicated dishes but, it still has to look and taste delicious and that is what I try to execute simple delicious meals and dishes. People do not want to travel the globe for an ingredient so you can make a great dish many times with what you have in your pantry.
I thought this would be easy but it takes a lot of dedication and commitment to become a blogger thinking about what can you write about next or what dish can you make and will people read what you write. You also have to be a part of the now with social media you have to put yourself out there, now I am on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ and Tumblr which I recently joined. I am just glad that I am retired
I am still a work in progress there is so much I have to learn and so much I have learned. I do know one thing that cooking is my passion and I have taken pictures of my food with my cell since the iPhone 3G came out making it easy to take pictures of everything. Until next time, make something great.
