a) forgetting to jot down or bookmark the recipes I've used to make things
b) ONLY writing down the modifications I've made, so you get recipes that go like... "substitute 1/2 cup soya milk, 2 tbsp olive oil, add 3 tbsp oats and miss out cinnamon" - unhelpful!
c) writing things down, but with no indication of what the recipe for so that I have to first decipher my scrawling, then try to second guess what might have been the result of combining those ingredients (assuming I've not forgotten any vital ones, which often I do)
So as a result if I don't blog about things fairly soon after making them, they sort of get lost in the mists of time.
And periodically I clear out the photos in my 'unblogged food' folder, post a roundup such as this, and delete them!
So here's my 2012 Q2 -3 roundup!
