As you probably know, my recipes are step-by-step with lots of photos. Why? Because I think step-by-step recipes are super useful and uniquely suited to the blogging medium. Also, I hope that many gluten-free newbies read my blog and are less intimidated about jumping head first into the world of g.f. cooking.
But sometimes, I mess up. It’s true. I know you’re shocked. Take a moment to sit down if you need to.
You see, sometimes I get everything set up to blog about a recipe. I buy the ingredients, start the prep and take the pictures. But somewhere along the way, I forget to continue taking pictures. Usually this happens if I’m making a meal for company, and I get rushed at the end. Or my blood sugar is low and I’m on the dangerous tight rope between lightheaded and hangry (hunger-induced anger = hangry). It’s a dangerous place, my friends. Just ask The Professor. He’s been caught in those crosshairs before.
This reminds me of a picture I saw on Facebook a few days ago.
Can I get an Amen?
So, anyways, my point. I have a few awesome recipes whose photos just sort of unceremoniously ended before the recipe was finished. They’re amazing recipes, but I wouldn’t normally blog about them because they’re missing some of the step-by-step pictures.
This was making me sad though. Because, I mean, they’re some of my favorite recipes. So I’ve decided to feature one of these recipes, and I’m letting you decide! Right now, they are on the Island of Misfit Blog Posts, and you have the power to set one free!
Vote in the comments section by Friday, February 15th. Whichever recipe wins will be featured on Accidental Okie!
Recipe 1: Roasted and Caramelized Vegetables with Sesame Seeds and Rosemary
One of my favorite exports from New Zealand. Filling and economical and oh so good.
Recipe 2: Quiche
There’s a secret ingredient. Spoiler alert: it’s in this photo.
Recipe 3: Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Dates
The party food of kings…or of all my friends. One of the two.
