Almond dates chocolate truffles : Keeping it real !

" A new [blog post] is up " Can you guess the amount of time and work that goes behind writing this little sentence in social media platforms like Facebook ?




For me it's A LOT ! That's why I am constantly amazed by how often other bloggers put up new posts every week or maybe even everyday. Maybe I haven't found a rhythm yet, but a new post for me starts with something like that: I get a sparkling idea in my head that I think will make a good contribution to the blog.





I write it down, marking a day on my calendar that I will make/ test this recipe. Then I'll make it and when I am fortunate with a good tasting food then I will then  plan the photo shoot, which is a whole different story. I'll have to think about the props, the surface, the lighting, the mood...etc, And it doesn't help that my allocated  space for shooting is all the way on the other side of the house away from the kitchen and I only have a few hours of the day where the lighting in that space is just perfect!
