I have been stressed out about blogging lately. There is far too much going on in my life right now. I started doing this blog to help people suffering with food allergies, as well as myself. I enjoy creating delicious, allergy friendly recipes for everyone. Unfortunately, I have been getting stressed out about getting recipes created as well as getting them onto my site. As other bloggers know, you don’t just make a recipe once and post it. I sometimes make recipes four or five times, before I think they are good enough to post. I have been posting weekly for many years. I’m sorry, but I just can’t keep up anymore. I will still continue to do recipe development, but on a slower scale. For now, I will only be posting, say once or twice a month. Β I was just going to walk away from it completely, but I don’t want to do that. I am sorry for scaling back. At some point I will jump back into things more completely. For now, I hope you understand….

So my hubby has been having some gut issues and has been more restricted in his foods than I am. Nothing raw for the last half of the summer. Cooking stew in August was fun. Gluten free and dairy free has been easy. He has also had to stay away from anything that causes gas in any way. So I haven’t been able to cook with onions. Lets just say that I’ve been experimenting even more than normal trying to find good flavours that his gut can handle. This soup is delicious and thankfully, he can enjoy it! Hopefully soon we can figure out what is the cause or this may have to be his be lifestyle.

  1. I hope you are catching up and feel better about the events in your life. Thanks for all the recipes and work you have done. Best to you and your family.

  2. Oh my goodness don’t apologize! I find blogging quite stressful, Sandi. It takes an insane amount of time and devotion (and patience!). Take the time you need for the things you want to do – blogging should be for fun in my opinion.
    This sounds like a nice gut-friendly soup. I’ll make it for my husband. He also has digestive issues. He went on an elimination diet quite some time ago and sadly was not ever able to reintroduce onion or beans πŸ™

    • Thanks Kimmy! I agree that blogging should be fun. Your husband still can’t have beans or onions… Yes that is very sad. Mine can’t have many things but we haven’t narrowed everything down yet.

  3. I totally hear you on blogging being stressful. I don’t think some people realize how tough it is to create a recipe, try it a number of times, and then photograph it. When I told my family it takes me at least 6 hours to do a blog post (and that’s not including recipe testing) they couldn’t believe it and looked at me like I was crazy. Try not to stress too much about it – you always have great recipes for us at HVF. πŸ™‚

    This soup looks like a great recipe for fall! So warming!

  4. Sandi- I hear you! Blogging is incredibly time consuming!! And especially when it comes to sharing recipes. One day I spent 2 hours trying to get the right picture of blueberry muffins… I knew I needed to scale back then, as it was not fun anymore. One thing I have been doing when pressed for time is revamping old posts with new pictures and pins! It has been fun to do and republish them! Your soup looks great!! πŸ™‚
