Happy 2020! I’m so glad to be back! 2019 took a lot out of me. I think last I was here, I was about to run the Boston Marathon. I can’t believe I haven’t given you a recipe since St. Patrick’s Day! I spent 2019 really focused on running, which meant posting took a back seat.
I still was baking and creating recipes, but the blog writing and photographing are so time-consuming and I just wasn’t able to keep up. But that means I have a lot of recipes queued up ready to share with you!
I’ve seen a lot of posts recently of people complaining about recipe blogs that talk about their lives before getting to the recipe, but the reality is that there has to be a blog post to accompany the recipe in order for the recipe to show up in search results. I won’t pretend that I understand how SEO works (though I am trying to learn more!), but I know that I need to write something to go with the recipe for SEO purposes!
I find it more interesting to write about life, than to write out a blog post of how to make the recipe before posting the recipe itself below, but I would love your input on what you want to hear about in these posts. Since my limited knowledge of SEO says I have to write something, I want it to be what you want to read! If you want step by step recipe instructions, I will do that. And if you want to hear about running, or my life, or blogging, or cooking, or baking, or anything, I’m here for it. And if you just scroll down to the recipe, that’s okay too. If I’m being honest, I mostly do the same.
In the meantime, if you’re loading up on caffeine to kick off the new year (aka going back to work after a lot of time off), this is the perfect treat for you! Happy New Year! Wishing you all the best for the year ahead!
