updates and other things

For several years, this little blog has had two names. Something that had always annoyed my a bit, and I was never quite sure how to sever the two. Most of you guys enjoy the recipe section (aka “The Village Cook”) and some of you may not even be aware of the other side (“The Domestic Mama”)ย  As you already know, there are some days where I don’t have a new recipe, or I simply was too lazy to take more than an iPhone shot for Instagram. And then there are days when I just feel like writing whatever is on my mind- and then again there are days when the story just won’t fit the food. (I don’t think anyone wants to read about head lice drama and food at the same time…)

So, my sweet friends out there:

If you like the stories, and want to read longer ones – head over here: The Domestic Mama

Or, if you’re just here for the food: The Village Cook

Now, wait: I’m still going to be chatting with you over a recipe. I’m not going to just say: “Here’s some cookies they’re yummy” I’ll still have my input, and story that inevitably happens in my house.

BUT- what I am going to do is have more of the daily tales (andย  photos) without obligation to recipes on The Domestic Mama. (There’s a story there right now)

Today is the perfect example of not having good pictures. We had a German themed night and I made some homemade Spatzle. It was a recipe I had already posted years ago, and it probably needs a revisit…

And I snapped a less than perfect iphone pic.

Maybe that’s because I had a Tucher (a type of German beer) in celebration of our backyard coming together….. and since I needed some of it to cook up the Bratwurst in.

I know, excuses, excuses. ๐Ÿ™‚

The good thing is that I have leftovers specifically for a photo shoot. And another good thing: I’ll have a healthy recipe to counteract the German meal, and a cupcake recipe to counteract the healthy one. It’s all about balance, you know. ๐Ÿ™‚

What are your thoughts on the two sites? Did you know there were two? Are you a story person or food person?
