Master Recipe Index...A Labor Of Love!

Pin It

Lindaraxa's Garden Master Recipe Index is finally here...and what a labor of love it has been!

This is probably my proudest moment since I started this blog, a year and four months ago.  In the beginning,  I had no idea where I was headed;  not that I know now, but let's just say I have a clearer vision.

Revisiting all the posts has been very worthwhile, indeed.  I can see clearly now where the gaps are.  This is the problem with blogs, everything seems to disappear after you post it.  Sort of out of sight, out of mind.  When you get to my age, that can be a major problem.  Just a couple of weeks ago I found myself writing a recipe I had already posted! I also can't believe how much progress I've made, not only as a writer but as a techie and how sh@*$#% my first photos were.  Rather lame I would say!

It has been a lot of fun and definitely worth the effort.   It's a culmination of everything I've learned  and cooked and yet a window into so many new things.  New friends, new ideas, new technologies, new ways to make things, a continuous learning experience!  But the thing that comes particularly to mind is the fact that I am leaving another footprint, another trace that I was here.  Not only are these recipes for my children and family,  but also for you, dear subscribers, so that when you make something you found here and everybody raves about it, you can be proud to say it came from me, an unknown lady name Lindaraxa.  I just saw a very nice post by a friend and subscriber about a meal she made for a dinner party with all the recipes from this blog.  These are the rewards of writing a food blog, seeing it all put to work.

So it is with a lot of pleasure that I give you a master recipe index by course that you can use as a cookbook.  It has been done with love and affection for it has been indeed a pain in the neck.  I shouldn't have let it go this long, but you know how it is.  I promise that when I catch my breath, I will subdivided the categories even more and I will also incorporate the recipes from  my country blog, My Kitchen By The Lake, so it is all in one place.  I will also take a look and see what is missing.  I can already see there are too many entrees that also need to be subdivided and not enough cookies (which I love but hate to make) so I will adjust accordingly.

I really want this to be a small legacy to my family, friends and those of you who enjoy my cooking.   In the future, if you think of anything you would like to see, drop me a note.  Please do comment though.  I have a subscriber base who is either terribly shy or is on a perpetual loss for words! I know it is a pain, but it is really simple.  Just put your name, any name,  or send them anonymous if it is easier.  That way you don't have to go through the process of opening a Google account.  If you have Gmail you already have a Google account!

So, I'll shut up now, and let you see my masterpiece. Clicking on the recipe will take you to the original post. Have fun!
