Discontinuing blog... but not really

I'm sorry to say this, but I've decided that I'm not going to be actively working on this blog (as you may have noticed from the past month). This is a hard thing, as I was quite excited to embark on it, however, I do not have the time for it, and it has become quite difficult to find tasty recipes given the dietary restrictions that have been placed on my husband so that he will be able to get past the chronic acid reflux that he has been experiencing. We are doing a "bland diet" now. As you may imagine, from the name of the diet, it's not much to speak of. We have found some somewhat tasty recipes, however, they haven't been anything that I have been horribly excited to share with others. I don't want to be tempting him with still trying out new recipes all the time, and so I've discontinued trying new tasty recipes.

I'm not going to delete the blog though. I still think the concept is great (though I'm sure that it's not original), and so I'd still love to invite any who would like to, to submit recipes to me that you think others would enjoy. They can be main dishes, desserts, appetizers, whatever you would like to share. If you would like to submit recipes on a regular basis, then I will be happy to make you an author on this blog. Please include any tips that you think would be helpful as well (not necessary though).

Helpful guidelines for submitting your favorite recipes

First of all, I want you to contribute your recipes, so thank you for looking at this section! Please submit your family favorites, as well as recipes that use food storage items. I would like for this to be a great resource for simple (enough) homemade dishes.

Please include any helpful tips that you may have for the recipe.

If you have modified a recipe to where it is no longer recognizable as the original, do not bother citing your source; however, if it is only slightly modified, please note the name of the cookbook, author/editor, and copyright year (this may be a great opportunity to help others to find good cookbooks!).

Please do not submit recipes containing any type of coffee or alcohol.

Thank you so much for your effort and willingness to share with us your family's favorites.

One last thing, please let me know if you wish to be remain anonymous as far as who submitted the recipe, otherwise I will credit you as submitter by putting first name and last initial.

I will contact you via email if I have any questions for you. Thank you so much!
