As I was looking through my posts on my dashboard, I found some recipes that was stashed in my draft folder. This is one of them. Not sure why I didn’t post it 2 years ago. Lol! But it is still a recipe that I make every now and then. So I thought, why not share it with all of you!
Browsing through my older recipes and posts, I see how I have evolved as a cooking blogger. At one point, I thought I should just redo all my older posts. The ones when I first started out blogging. My pictures are terrible. haha! I’m not saying that they are excellent now. I’m still learning, but my food photography skills have definitely improved.
I’ve been blogging for about 3.5 years now, and I’ve enjoyed this journey tremendously. I’ve learned a lot along the way, met many awesome foodies and fellow bloggers, I have learned not to beat myself up if things are the way I want it to be, and to let go. I’ve learn to have fun, laugh at my mistakes, appreciate feedback and critics, and also be grateful for all the encouragement and support shown. And with all these, I decided to leave my old posts as it is. It document how Delishar has developed, it’s authentic, and it will continue to show how Delishar will evolve in future.
