I’ve been blogging for close to 3 years now and apparently I haven’t learned a darn thing in the time that I have been doing this. One of the rules of blogging, according to such pros as Darren Rowse from ProBlogger, is to have a plan for your blog if you are taking a blogging break. Have guest writers, plan some posts in advance to launch while you are on your break, return to your archives and share posts from the past… all of these options are good ones if you plan on taking a vacation from blogging.

If I was thinking ahead of time, I certainly would have done any one of these. The truth is, I didn’t think I’d be gone for long. I thought that I would maybe even be blogging from the hospital bed soon after the baby was born! Then this sweet little pumpkin entered into my life and I suddenly found that I had other things I wanted to focus my time on. The challenge with food blogging is that even if you have the desire to write, the desire to cook may not accompany the writing desire. It seems as if that is the case for me anyway.

Well, for those of you here for a food and the blogging, you will be happy to know that the desire to write and cook is finally returning! I am still completely smitten with our newest addition, but after 2 weeks (can you belive Leah is already 2 weeks old?) we are slowly getting into a bit of a routine and I am finding some time to get back to some normalcy, which includes cooking and writing.

For now, you will have to suffer through some fairly quick and simple recipes as I am not dying to go all gourmet on you right now.  This Tasty Tilapia recipe is so easy, and like many Tilapia recipes, is perfect for a family who is looking to get something delicious and nutritious on the table without taking away from the escaping hours in the day.

Thanks for sticking around during my little blogging break. I can’t promise that my posts will be all that consistent over the next little while, but I will get back to regular blogging very soon! Oh, and if you haven’t recently, make sure to head over to the Mommy Madness site to check out my current posts and videos. If you are in Kansas or Missouri, I’d love to earn your vote!

    First off, congratulations on the baby :) Second, we LOVE tilapia, and I just bought some this weekend, so I am totally making this tonight! We’re going away tomorrow, so I need to make something I know won’t have leftovers, and they will eat it up! Thanks :)

    I can’t believe your little darling is 2 weeks old already! I also can’t believe my Olivia just turned 2 YEARS old! lol! Time flies, that’s the only thing we can be sure about. :) I’ve been such a slacker blog-wise lately, and I don’t even have a good excuse! That dish sounds terrific, just what we need, something easy for those lazy summer days ahead!

    I like fish that doesn’t taste like fish… tilapia is one of them! And I often run out of recipes… this one looks great! Thanks for sharing!

    I think May is a slow month in the blogosphere, so not to worry! Enjoy your newborn and post when you can. I’m not sure what my excuse is. I’ve only posted 5 entries so far in May. Not my best month…

    Thanks for the tilapia recipe. My hubby loves tilapia, so I’ll fix it for dinner tomorrow night~

    Well, I must be a horrible blogger because I never get guest posts or plan posts ahead! You deserve a break without thinking about that…who came up with blogger etiquette anyway? If it’s your job I understand, but it’s not your job! :-) I LOVE tilapia…it’s my favorite. I need to make it sometime soon!
