Thank you to all the fantastic cooks who generously shared their talent with LC these last few weeks. 2012 will bring more Guest Post Spotlights. Collaborating with creative passionate cooks is my favorite part of blogging.
I will be changing up LC a bit.
I find posting recipes to be ponderous. Especially my cuisine ends up having multiple components on almost all my dishes. Makes the posts pretty damn long. Anyway we know that most people only like to look at the pretty pictures.
Honestly, how many of us out there actually cook other food bloggers recipes we read on posts?!
As food bloggers, we cook our own dishes, labor over writing our posts and then take about 1000 photos. All the while agonizing over which is the perfect one to post. Not to mention every one's favorite past time...THE COMMENT GAME.
What I would much rather do on LC is talk about the process of cooking. What goes into what we do. All the different cooking techniques used, the philosophy of dish creation, and choosing of specific ingredients.
To me that is much more interesting. Ultimately, recipes are guidelines, not laws or contracts. Cooking is a joy, not a chore. It should be a journey of exploration. Make dishes your own. Play, experiment, fuck up, frustrate yourself, learn something.
Some posts may have recipes, if it's something different or pertinent to a particular course...or not too long.
Many probably will disagree. Some will say they do cook other peoples food and love to see recipes on blogs. That's fine, in life there are no absolutes. But this particular space is called Lazaro Cooks.
I encourage anyone interested in my complete recipes to contact me. Talking food is my passion. I respond to one and all.
I know my long time readers will say that I hate Twitter. Which I do. However, I am trying to make an effort to be active on there.
2011 was a pile of shit. Lets make 2012 fuckin' rock!
That's it for now...till we exchange a few words again...Peace!
