Hi gang! This is something that has been on my mind for a while because I’ve been sort of taking a look at my blog and seeing what areas need improvement. One thing I would like to do is post more recipes! Posting recipes is one of the main reasons I started OHC over a year ago (wow!). My dilemma is how to approach the recipes and posting them, which is why I’m turning to you.
For those that develop and post their own recipes, what is your approach? My inital thought was to try the recipe a few times before posting it here on OHC, however this has also proven to be my downfall. I might try something new and love it, but then I won’t have it again for months or at all even! So then the recipe never gets posted and I feel like that is such a loss because it was good one.
My other approach would be to post the recipe with the disclaimer that I’ve only made it once, this is what I did, and it turned out well.
How do you handle recipe posting? Should it be something that has been tried and tried again before posting? Or do you feel that, if it worked once, might as well share it?!
Being your everyday homecook, I’m always experimenting in the kitchen. Especially now that we tend to eat a high veggie diet with the occasional meat tossed in here and there. Since I’m always experimenting, repeat dishes sometimes don’t happen, and this is causing me to lean more towards posting right away when I have the opportunity.
I’ve also started posting more information about meals in my Daily Eats section. For example on fish night, I now tend to give more info about how I made that fish for the evening. Should I start making that a recipe inside the post so people could reference if it they wanted to? The technique doesn’t vary but the seasonings/marinades do change often.
Would love to hear your thoughts on the subject!
