Trial and Error: The 5 Things I Learned About Blog Writing This Week at Clearly Delicious
Many think it’s foolishness to claim that ignorance is bliss. Well, to achieve food blog recipe perfection, sometimes ignorance is necessary.
This past Friday, my boyfriend and I decided we were going to cook dinner and watch a movie. It’s currently Lent, which means no meat on Fridays (see here for great Lenten recipe ideas).

Neither my boyfriend nor I had ever cooked lasagna, and neither one of us had ever worked with butternut squash before. I printed off the recipe, and we were off to Winn Dixie to buy our produce. Not only did I drop a big butternut squash in the process—twice, mind you, cracking the botanically-classified fruit—but I also didn’t know to seed the pumpkin-like vegetable.
