When you have been blogging as long as I have, almost five years (where did the time go??) you have a lot of old posts. With old posts come old photos and while those are sometimes fun to look back on I can definitely tell how far my photography skills have come. Not saying that my camera skills are something to brag about now, they are most definitely not, but at least I’m not still using my old point and shoot and posting super tiny, blurry photos. Ugh. Why all the tiny photos?!
Recently I have been on a mission to update a all of my old recipes posts and get better, Pinterest-worthy, photos of them!! I am also uploading the recipes into my recipe card maker plug-in thing so they will match my newer recipes, hello OCD!!, and be more streamlined and easy to print.
This is a pretty large undertaking and will take some time but I am excited about revisiting some old recipes and eating all that yummy food!! With our further ado, I bring to you a few of the recipe posts I have updated!!
I did not realize that you had been blogging for 6 years. I laughed when you mentioned all those tiny photos when you first started blogging. My first ones are like that, too and they are all over the place – no rhyme or reason. I love all your recipe redos. I’ve been working on some, too.
Oops!! Typo…my FIVE year “bloggiversary” is 11/11! I’m going to blame that on trying to think late at night, LOL!!
These all look like delicious recipes. I am always looking for new meal ideas!
oh gosh. I HATE looking back at old photos and posts. Makes me cringe. My photos are so tiny, the lighting is horrible, they’re all over the place and aligned in the post weird. Ah I cannot talk about it lol.

This is the best idea! I can totally relate to how you feel about your old recipe photos. These all look great!

When I look at my old posts, I want to crawl under a rock and die from embarrassment because of the pictures. I can’t believe I actually pinned them. The poppy seed chicken looks delicious!

I’ve got you beat in blogging, I’ve been blogging since 2001 lol. Your dishes look so amazing and are really making me want to get in my kitchen on this cold, wet and dreary day. Nothing can cheer me up quicker than trying new recipes.

I’m always looking for easy, delicious recipes! That lasagna soup looks so delicious! And I love that it’s lighter and lower in calories than traditional lasagna!!
That poppy seed chicken looks so good. I was going to make chicken tomorrow a different way but I will have to make this one!
Megan Elford says
Ooh, I would love to check out that lasagna soup – it looks delicious! It’s so much fun to go back through those older posts and reread them!
Sarah Bailey says

I really need that lasagna soup. Everything looks so good and your pictures are great. I think you are doing a great job updating old recipes.

Stephen Parry says

I hear you on blogging long term and trying to update photos from those early days. I used to be on blogger and the photo transfer did not work very well so every time a post from that era pops up, I have to fix the photo. I love that you are updating your recipe posts because these are some delicous looking recipes I need to try.

lasagna soup!?!?!?! whaaaaaaat!!!!! this looks so incredibly delicious!
i need to update some of my old posts too–i don’t have any as far back as 5 year buuuut you know what i mean!
All of those recipes look amazing! Especially the pasta dishes. Congrats on the milestone and for succeeding in blogging for so long!
they all look delicious, that’s for sure! I think food photography is one of the hardest realms out there.
Poppyseed chicken sounds good to me. I’d like to make that for the fam.
