    You can't tease your readers with your weekly menu and not give the recipes!!! Do you really cook like that all week?! What a lucky family you have:D

    Cool blog! Lots of fun stuff!

    I haven't figured out a good way to post the recipes. Some of them I can link to their original sites, but some I have printed out at home and have no clue where I found them.

    And yeah for the most part I do cook like that all the time. The recipes aren't always a success so my family isnt that lucky! :)

    The mushroom & chicken stroganoff wasn't a winner.

    An easy way is to scan in the recipe card and post a jpeg (as long as you're not scanning something from print, just something you have written out yourself). Adds to the ambiance if there are food stains on it. . . .

    So I heard a news report yesterday that people writing blogs has gone down steadily over the past year or so. I think the report is here: http://pewinternet.org/Reports/2010/Generations-2010/Overview/Findings.aspx

    I think the trend is towards Facebook and Twitter. Obviously some stuff you do might work better on a blog than either of those but I was just thinking that you could also supplement with FB and Twitter and link to the blog. I don't FB and Twitter enough to actually suggest to you how best to use them but I think for getting readers that incorporating them would probably be useful! I know I sometimes read something short that gets my interest and click on a link to the blog about it for more detail.

    My facebook friends could care less about my crafts or camping or anything.

    That would be fun, but I cant stand the sound of my own voice.

    I might try and make the font on your header darker, bolder, and bigger. I find it rather hard to read.
