Let’s Get Real About Recipes
As a food blogger (or a blogger in general if I am being honest) we have this deep seated need to be perfect. We tear apart our kitchen, do elaborate set ups, buy vinyls and cutting boards and backgrounds and props to take a trillion pictures in hopes to find the “one” that makes you click and visit. I know that people always think its about the ads.
And yes, bloggers get paid for ads, but most don’t get paid nearly enough for the time it takes to haul everyone to the store just to get ingredients to share a how to make cookies if you know what I mean.
After over 10 years of blogging and tens of thousands of photos taken and advertised I have learned one thing- y’all, the audience, don’t always care if the pictures are perfect. If the lighting is right. If something is a little overexposed or not sharp enough. What you want is a solid, delicious recipe idea that is easy, doesn’t break the bank, and tastes great.
And throughout the years I have had far more amazing recipes than crappy ones.
But here is the thing- some food is just freaking UGLY. Casseroles, dips, heck anything that involves beef, but its also some of the BEST food.
So I am going to try to let my personal need to only put out pictures that are awesome and instead share with you some of my normal day to day life that doesn’t include set ups, but rather real cooking experiences.
And I hope that you come along with my adventures, forgive me for the “non-professional” imagery and give these homemade recipes a shot.
Today is one of those days.
Personally I hate sandwiches on the daily. Its about the most boring lunch on the planet, so today I made some Beef Enchilada Dip. This is SO easy to make and yep, one of those “gross” looking foods that also tastes fantastic.
I took the images and videos of the recipe while on my phone, not under special lighting or special set ups, but documenting it as I personally made it, and ate it.
I hope you enjoy this real look at my life and the recipes I serve my family!
