I’ve been feeling dreadfully uninspired in the kitchen. My cookbooks all look the same. My recipe cards must be in Greek, and the aisles of the grocery leave me feeling nothing but blah. My pots and pans are sitting (gasp!) clean in their rightful places. I’m afraid they’re going to develop a complex.
I’m sure you’ve been here before. We’ve all been stuck in eating ruts, whether it’s making the same dish night after night, ordering the same greasy chinese, or suppering on crackers and yogurt because we just can’t muster the spark to create something delicious. But when you’re a food blogger, not cooking can put a serious dent in your culinary ego.
But you, my lovely readers and the reason for my internet existence, can help me out of it. Riddle me this:
What are your favorite recipes? What have you been cooking lately? What have you been dreaming about cooking lately? What are some recipes that you have stumbled across that have smacked you over the head and screamed, “cook me NOW”?
I need help. This is my 911 call. Only you can save me from this dry, barren wasteland where my creativity used to blossom. Leave your recipe, a link to your recipe, or even an idea for a recipe (I’m desperate) in the comments or email them to me at jenny (at) rainydaygal.com.
I will love you forever, kiss your feet, do your dishes for a month. I need to cook! Saute! Roast! Bake! Grill! Or else I will wither away and melt into a Jenny-shaped puddle on my kitchen floor. Here Lies Jenny Miller. She cooked once. And then she died.
