Sometimes it surprises me that I have a food blog. But not because of the reasons you think. The thing is, I am a people pleaser to a fault. I’ve always said I couldn’t be a hairdresser because I’m too worried that people wouldn’t like their hair. BUT recipes are the same way. Everyone has different taste buds and some things people either love or hate.
Sometimes I make a recipe that I’ve made a zillion times and it doesn’t turn out. There are so many variables: the butter is too cold, your oven temperature is off, your baking soda is old, you added too much of something. You learn as you go. So I always worry that if it doesn’t turn out for someone else, I feel responsible and I hate that.
But I finally came to the resolution that when it comes down to it, I’m posting recipes that me and my family love. Some people will love them but not everyone will. That’s life.
