Today marks My Life in Food’s first month of existence, and I’ve reflected on the ways that it has served as a record of what I eat and think, but also storing recipes in a new way–not in a cookbook, not in a computer file, but embedded in a narrative which necessarily interacts with the context of my life – past, present, and future. And believe it or not, that got me thinking about the ways my blog has contributed towards my own personal recipe storage and organization.
Some bloggers, such as Cooking Today, use the blog as a way to organize all those miscellaneous recipe files, streamlining them down to the basics, accessible at any time by searching for a particular tag or search term. Aside from the smattering of recipes I’ve managed to share here, the rest of my recipes can be found in books here:
