About having a food blog

Some days I ask myself what I am doing with a food blog. Am I pretending to be one who knows how to cook and bake or what? There are so many food blogs out there, how can I believe that what I scribble down, the photos I show, the recipes I share, can be of any interest at all to other than myself?
I wonder if I shall stop food blogging, or if I shall close my foodblog down. It takes alot of time keeping up with all my blogs, and my family keep on teasing me when I line up our food for photos...........

But I keep on. Year after year. At least I have some recipes to show my children, I say to myself. The boys both have kitchens of their own, they call me from time to time asking how to cook this, how to bake that. May be I shall gather some of my recipes and make them a very special "Recipes, with love from Mum"-book?

Still I keep on food blogging. If you are once smitten, it is hard to stop. And then things happen. I get comments, I get emails. Questions. How do you do this? I like your blog? How do you make that? You have inspired me to start blogging, come and have a look....... And I know that food blogging has become a part of my life I will not leave behind.

Like when I write a post about our first Christmas cookies, and people from around the world take time to contact me, to comment, to help me with the words I don't know in English. UP, an extra Thank You, for the link which explains hjortetakksalt

Balisha, you have asked me about the colouring of the cookies in my previous post. It is so simple. We drip a few drops of food colouring into an egg glass, then we use the back of a match stick, dip it in the colour and use it as a paint brush. Good luck!


The recipe for these kokosmakroner, you ask? Well, I shared them last year. Take a look here.

Keep up with the good work. What a wonderful blog

Thankyou, Britt. Now I must ask..What is an egg glass?

Hi Balishe. My "bad translation" :-) I guess the English word is egg cup (where you put the boiled egg on the breakfast table.......)

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my

first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I

will keep visiting this blog very often.

Do keep your food blog! It's fun and informing and gives me a taste of Norway. Mine is somewhat neglected but I return to it from time to time when I need to satisfy my own hunger, if only for a nibble...

What a delicious time I have had catching up on your food blog. I have neglected to check in here with a regular click of the keyboard, and it has been to my detriment. I am inspired by your photos and recipes (my own memories ignited about rommegrot and risengrot -- YUM!). I ponder a food blog, but determine that I shall merely integrate more food onto my current blog -- one blog overwhelms me at times, how would I ever manage to live my life and nurture two or three blogs?? My family will be in for some new Norwegian treats. ; D thanks for sharing your treasured recipes!
