Sybaritica’s post has sparked my interest to post these two dishes which I made with dried scallops. The main feature of these two dishes is to present the scallops in a “classy” way. The same principle applies: steam the dried scallops till they become wet and soft. Do not mix them up but leave them as a whole. Place a few “whole scallops” on top of a dish of mushrooms or vegetables. Pour the sweet juice of the scallops on the top. Present the dish like these to your guests. They would enjoy them very much.
This picture is a summary of my four posts of bitter melon. It also marks a milestone of my Blogging history. I am using the new WordPress app on my iPad for the second time to test out its effectiveness.
I started to blog 3 months ago; created five active blogs..kind of, and a few private and non-active ones. This is my only food blog. The others are about arts, travels, photography. Although I love arts more than cooking, I found the food blog most satisfying. I cook every day…almost. I took pictures of some of my products, wrote something, and unexpectedly I did have readers who liked my posts!
I have altogether about 245 likes, 58 followers so far. For a new blogger, that never did social networking or anything to promote my blogs, I am very happy of the outcome already.
I am extremely honest. I never liked something that I don’t like. I read posts with interest and sincerity. I commented whenever there was something that interested me. I am following those blogs which really interest me.
My passion is actually in arts, but I found that the interesting posts that I posted (I really think they are very interesting) are not as attractive to many readers than a simple dish that I made. I must say that I am quite disappointed in my arts related posts. I did spend much more time on my arts posts but they were not as welcoming as food!
My conclusion after three months of blogging: keep cooking, keep eating, keep posting. Arts is my passion, but food is my lifeline! Happy blogging, everyone!
