I’ve lost my mojo.

Hi guys…I’m sorry that posting has been so sporadic and so sparse.  I don’t know if it’s the heat, the inevitable depro that comes with the change of seasons or if it’s just plain boredom.   It’s not that I’ve given up cooking…though, admitedly, we’ve been having a lot more convenient and quick meals lately.  I’ve just not been wont to set up the shoot, or do anything blogly. (yes, I made up that word.  so? lol)  Instead, I’ve been reading, going for walks, having coffee with the moms from school and shopping.  Not bad things, right?  But things far away from the puter.  So, I ask you, my friends…please be patient with me while I try and find my recipe/photo/blog mojo again!  I *do* have a bunch of new ideas for Halloween this year, so I’m hoping to get those started soon!  XOXO

  1. No problem chica! There’s ups and downs :D . Reading, having coffee with other mamis, walking and so sounds fantastic to me! Enjoy!

  2. Your blog is fantastic and very impressive. It is one of the first I started following. Just letting you know: you’ve got fans!

  3. I think it is great that you are taking time off from the puter to do those wonderful things. We’ll be here waiting for you :)

  4. You and Half Cups in the Kitchen should get together:D with your love of all things Hallowe’en Nikki. You will get your mojo back I am sure:D

  5. It happens to all of us from time to time. Sometimes, you have to step back for a while. I went through it myself a few months ago, and am still teetering. We’ll still be here when you get back! : )

  6. Seasonal changes do seem to do a number on people. As I sit doing tax returns and business calculations I’m thinking I’d so rather be having coffee or staring into space. Give yourself a break – it does the soul good.

  7. I think most people who blog have been there. We’ll still be here when you’re ready :)

  8. I’m just now getting my own mojo back after taking about a year off, so it’s all good. I’m glad I found your blog though! My fiancé and I are going to try your chicken shawarma this weekend.

  9. i totally understand. i lost my mojo too… still working on getting it back…

  10. After blogging both personally and then food-wise for over two years, I can tell you the same thing the people above me have told you – it happens to everyone. I see it all the time. At least one fellow blogger is going through that at any given moment. But you know, at least you’re off doing other things in life you enjoy. In the end, those are more important anyway. :)

    I think I speak for all your readers when I say we aren’t going anywhere!

  11. I agree with Rayrena, we’ve all been there. You’ve not only got fans, but empathetic ones! Have fun! We all need to get away from the puter every once in a while. :) Take care.

  12. Take all the time you need and come back fresh!

  13. Your mojo is still there, it just needs a vacation :) Look forward to your return. In the meantime, enjoy your time away!

  14. Take as much time as you need. We all love you out here in food-blogga land and will always wait for you. You rock girl!!
    I think I have your lost mojo as I have been without a fridge for a couple days and I’m DESPERATE to cook. Yeah I’m jonzing for it! Who knows when this stupid fridge will be fixed.

  15. Hi Nikki!

    I think we all go through times when our blogs need to wait and rightly so! This actually shows that we are humans after all and have other responsibilities as well!
    I enjoy your articles very much, your photos are OUTSTANTING, very vibrant and full of life (unlike mine)!

    So by the time I finish reading all the articles, you will probably be posting another one.

    Have fun in your off-line life!!!

  16. Gawd, you guys are just the BEST! :) Thanks so much for your encouraging words. Who better to understand foodbloggerblock than you guys? hehe I actually do have a gross Halloween recipe up my sleeve…I just need to pick up one ingredient…and see if there are any props to be found…I don’t know if I still have some of that stuff from last year or not. Be prepared to be scared! lmfao

    Hugs and Kisses to all y’all. I’m already feeling revved to try and get my butt (and clicky fingers) going!

    Best, nikki

  17. muchachita, suelta eso! piensa en las cosas bella que vienen con cada dia nuevo… tomate todo el tiempo que necesites….



  18. muac, Nik! We’ll wait for your mojo to catch up. :)
