This blog is not dead. It's just in a coma.

I missed my seven year blogiversary last month. Seven years of trying new recipes and I still can't cook! I knew I was not a 'natural' when it comes to cooking but I thought that with a lot of practice that I would see more successes than failures. And I was, when I was cooking regularly, but it seems that it didn't take long for me to lose whatever skills I had picked up these past seven years. Lately I feel like I'm a worse cook than when I started!

I have left ingredients behind, I have made the wrong call and added the 'wrong' ingredient (a few white chocolate chips were all it took to turn my son's nose away from one batch of chocolate chip brownies), I've overcooked and undercooked things. Even recipes I've made several times before are not turning out right (Dan's disaster of a birthday cake!) I can't even make a salad for myself that hits the mark. I can't make anything that doesn't come out of a box or package that my kids will eat, and sometimes I can't even get the packaged stuff right.

So it's been hard to revive my desire to blog. Blogging certainly hasn't been replaced with anything - I still have the time to do it (I have more time than ever to do it). I was still buying cookbooks until recently when I decided that madness has to stop, at least until I start using them again. Will that happen? I honestly don't know.

Oh, CBJ, don't be so hard on yourself. I think we've all been there. Lord, I've been cooking for over 48 years and I'm really disappointed with some of my dishes. It's so good to hear from you.

I'm glad you're okay! I hate when I get in slumps like that. And what is up with kids who no longer eat all our favorites?!? Maybe look back thru the archives and make some of your successes again to rekindle your interest. You have alot of great recipes here!

Glad to hear that you're still "here". Take another look at what you've done and then "turn left".
Best

It's so good to read you again, CbJ. And I agree with what everyone said. I've been cooking for 40-something years and still am not a very good cook. When I first got married, I asked Jan for a baked potato recipe and didn't know why everyone thought that was so hilarious. Remember that, Jan?
I really enjoy your blog, CbJ. You just have a way of 'talking' that makes things interesting.

Food is, certainly, the most significant source we must ensure our success from one-day to another. Our bodies just can't live with no essential nutritional elements, minerals formula books and vitamins that foods features. Whether you-grow your own, look your own, purchase/trade your personal or some mixture thereof, understanding what to do using the foods that you get makes a big difference in maintaining your foods from being the "same old, same-old, day in, day out" we choose to avert.

This is the reason formula books are such a basic within our kitchens and frequently become cherished family treasures, transporting through a few generations.
