The first ‘7 links’ I read was Lyndsey’s of The Tiny Skillet a few weeks ago and I loved it. It made so much sense to trawl through the blog archives and select 7 posts for 7 different reasons. And so when Steve, the ‘Oui Chef’ tagged me I was thrilled – finally it gave me a chance to share ‘my post’ which didn’t get the attention it deserved…but you’ll have to wait for it.
and Chapman drink (which also rank 2nd and 3rd in popularity) fit the bill.
I particularly like that in the posts I do a lot of research and learn an immense amount about the various ingredients, substitutes, flavours and a whole world of new uses!
My most controversial post
For most of my life I’ve been a pacifist, call it ‘middle child syndrome’. I used to hate controversy, so I shut up a lot….and often kept my thoughts to myself, rarely airing my true feelings for fear of alienation and retribution. A few years ago, I realised that was RUBBISH – utter nonsense and though I’m not permanently on the war path, I’m no longer afraid to stand up and say ‘NO’. Thank you Lord.
‘Not win. They smell pretty good but the taste is bitter and the texture is coarse.
Yes, they’ve got no sugar in them, but to stifle the taste you have to add a sugary topping, so there’s not a huge point to that.’
‘LWJ, they do smell pretty good but bitter, I would argue. I guess that’s why I say they remind me of brownies!!!!! As for the texture, it is soft and open, I wouldn’t say coarse! The reason I don’t put any sugar in is that I end up putting sugar on them any which way and I invariably use less…… but that’s just me. Thanks!
Some might say this is hardly controversial….but it was the only one I could remember off the top of my head!
And it made me realise that comments are not always criticisms and that everyone has their point of view. I say that I refuse to be judged for who I am, the choices I’ve made and the decisions I’ve taken. In return, I will do my best not to judge.
A post whose success surprised you
A summary of my holiday to Barbados! I guess photos of the azure waters and sunshine are enough to warm hearts.
A post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved
After what felt like a hundred thousand photos and as many videos on learning to make sushi at a fantastic Japanese restaurant, and documenting it all step by step, the post garnered nary a nod. It is still one of my favourites though!
Passionate about food in its entirety – cooking, eating, dreaming, writing and photographing it.
