Keep in mind me? I utilised to weblog here. It’s been a minute (or whatever the youngsters are saying these days).

I didn’t indicate to ghost out on you all but I necessary a breather. In between the baby and the new organization, I was straight up stressed out and the site was starting up to really feel like a chore which I HATED. I indicate, I started out this blog for Enjoyable simply because I really like to cook and try out new recipes. But, prior to I knew it, the powers that be (i.e., my overachiever persona) made the decision that I ought to make this weblog my job which in the blogging globe indicates creating the blog my lifestyle. That was all properly and good when I was a laid-back, childless federal government employee with free nights and weekends galore.

Learn how to use WordPress? Positive. Master food photography? I’ll give it a go. Keep up on any and all social media accounts at all instances? Completely. It wasn’t easy with a total-time work but it was absolutely doable and the anxiety of producing, photographing, posting and sharing two recipes a week was manageable-ish.

Some thing had to fall by way of the cracks and it wasn’t going to be the paycheck we reside on, my little one or the franchise for which I have a contract and a teeny tiny bit of starter price debt to earn back. It had to be the weblog. As much as I tried to make it my “real” job it was nevertheless just a pastime that brought in occasional revenue. I never ever had sufficient time to compete with the huge guns and I certainly don’t have the time now. I had to accept that, for the time becoming, my blog, as considerably as I adore it, is an expendable in my existence.

At 1st, I was sad. All that time and power – what was the level? Then, I was relieved. And, then, I was inspired and thrilled. Stripping myself of the mindset that my website had to generate earnings meant that I no longer require to play by anybody’s rules. I no longer need to troll for sponsored posts or spend hours on social media or come to feel a ridiculous quantity of guilt if I don’t meet my month to month website post quota. So what if I don’t come up with the newest, coolest, most scrumptious quinoa recipe? So what if I’m not inspired by anything but PB&ampJs this week?  So what if my photos sucks (yes, I said it). IT DOESN’T MATTER.

If I’m going to proceed this weblog in the precious, precious minor time I have, all that issues is that I Appreciate it.

So, I’m taking my website back.

I’m going to publish what I want, when I want. I may possibly not publish for a month. I may submit five occasions in a month. But I’m not going to destroy myself over something that’s supposed to be enjoyable. Simply because what exciting is that?

That brings me to nowadays and these watermelon radish tartines. They’re not fancy (though they appear it). They’re not original (you can locate the recipe I barely adapted the tartines from right here and a equivalent recipe here). They weren’t inspired – we received watermelon radishes in our generate delivery box and I was desperate to uncover anything to do with them. The pictures are easy (no crazy backdrops – just a cookie sheet) but stunning (IMHO).

They had been precisely what I necessary exactly when I essential them – a quick, simple, fresh, healthy lunch featuring wonderful nearby make that my picky son actually ate (I guess we can include watermelon radish tartines to his limited repertoire of cheese, yogurt, chicken and tunafish – go figure).

I couldn’t wait to share them with you. THAT’S what this website should be about.

Watermelon Radish and Boursin Cheese Tartines
Prep time
Complete time
Serving size is two tartines.
Serves: 4
  • eight slices of complete-grain bread, toasted or untoasted (tasty both way)
  • 4 ounces of boursin cheese, garlic and herb flavor
  • 1 large watermelon radish (or two medium)
  • Chives or parsley, for garnish
  • Flaked sea salt, for garnish
  • Cracked black pepper, for garnish
  • Olive oil, for drizzling (optional)
  1. Making use of a mandoline or a knife if you have a steady hand, minimize the watermelon radish into thin slices. I utilised a knife so my slices have been a little uneven in their thickness but it was FINE. You do not require to peel the radish. I repeat, you do not require to peel the radish. I know the skin appears a tiny rough and elephant-like but it truly is totally edible.
  2. Spread a tablespoon (or far more) of the boursin cheese on every single slice of toast. Leading with 3 slices of watermelon radish.
  3. Garnish with fresh chopped herbs, salt and pepper. I utilised chives but I consider parsley would perform just as effectively. Last but not least, drizzle with olive oil...or do not. Critically, I could go either way on the olive oil. It adds that small one thing that olive oil always adds but you won't miss it if it truly is not there.
