I started the once-a-week schedule officially a couple of years ago (though I was posting at least once a week since the blog started in 2013) to give myself more structure (a weekly goal) and to pace myself (from doing too much!). Combined with my other endeavors and responsibilities though, the weekly post schedule has become pretty stressful; it's so time and energy consuming–time and energy I can't afford to stretch so thin anymore (as Bilbo said, like "butter scraped over too much bread").
For those who subscribe to my newsletter, you'll still receive an email when a new recipe is up on the blog, it just won't be weekly as it has been. Also, when the newsletter arrives, it won't necessarily be on a Monday, it'll be whatever day the recipe is posted.
Fiction Kitchen Podcast with Carrie Rashid and we post twice a month (that schedule won't change). In each episode we discuss a different TV show, movie, or book along with our impressions of it and the food found in it. We also share recipes we've made (and I need to catch up on posting mine)! So you can look for me there if you're interested. We're just a couple of dorks who love finding food in our media ;).
I'm very active on Instagram, and occasionally post short recipes or how-to's there (like today I posted about simple layered drinks inspired by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, here and here) , along with food photos and quotes from various media I come across like books and comics. I also post pics of subscription boxes and other bits & bats from my life. Instagram is a lot of fun, I've discovered. It feels more candid and quick :).
I have a tumbler where I share some of my food pics and an occasional recipe (like Sabine's Starbird Pizza and little Tie Fighter treats for Star Wars)! That's also the place I'll post book menus, a.k.a. food lists from books I read (like this list from The Blackthorn Key by Kevin Sands).
Some of the things I'll be working on are putting new designs in my Zazzle shop, creating new items for my Shopify shop, and mixing new tea blends. I'm part of a few book clubs so I'll be readingreadingreading. You can follow me on Goodreads here. For a year or so now I've been thinking of starting a recipe card subscription....maybe on Patreon....and I would love to do a cook book....that's definitely been knocking around in my brain for several years...
Haha, anyway, there you have it. I'll still be very active doing fiction food stuff, among other things. I'm simply releasing myself from the once-a-week recipe post schedule (I'm free! I'm free!).
Thank you all so much for your support!
I look forward to interacting with you here on the blog, and on my other social media :).
