Tonight I was struck with a sudden craving for chicken nuggets. I (fortunately) don’t live anywhere near fast food, leaving me with two options: buying some of the pre-packaged frozen nuggets, or making my own.
I was actually pleased with what a simple decision it was. Having done a fair amount of food research for a college project, I’ve become increasingly conscientious of what I choose to eat, so it made the most sense to me to make my own chicken nuggets.
I did some Googling, and found this recipe: http://www.skinnytaste.com/2011/04/healthy-baked-chicken-nuggets.html
Right before I put my homemade nuggets into the oven, I started thinking about how easy the recipe had been to make, and how happy I was to know exactly what I was putting into my meal. It was at this point I arrived at my epiphany; I feel that my blog has so far lacked purpose. I found myself asking what information I could bring to people about food that would stand out, and what would help them make smarter choices about what they eat. I will use my blog as a tool to provide people with a collection of simple and easy recipes and tips that they can use rather than turning to take-out or frozen food from the grocery store.
Now, as a regular person with a schedule, a job, and other responsibilities, I can’t deny the appeal of things that are really easy to make and/or take almost no time to prepare. That is where my blog comes in. I’m going to scour my resources, try out as much as I can (so you as a reader can be confident that the recipes you get from my blog will be successful) and find simple and fast recipes that will not fall short of satisfying your cravings.
I’m still debating as to whether or not I’ll be leaving tumblr, but I will be sure to keep you all up to date with wherever this new direction takes me.
Thank you all for being wonderful followers <3
PS. The chicken nuggets I made tonight were fantastic. Just what I was craving.
After a little more thought, I’ve decided that perhaps instead of migrating, right now my blog would be better off going on a little hiatus. I’ve got a lot of other things to focus on right now, and just can’t give it the attention it deserves.
Keep on cooking, everyone, I’ll be back <3
After much deliberation, I think I may have reached a decision to move my blog either to a new tumblr account or to a new blogging service entirely… I’m not having as much luck with tumblr as I thought I would, and I don’t feel as though my blog is living up to its full potential.
If I remain on tumblr, I’ll be sure to notify those of you who follow me as to what my new contact info is… otherwise, perhaps I’ll see you on whatever my new platform is.
Just to clarify, I’m not 100% set on this decision… but just something I’ve been thinking about.
