One of my most favorite bloggers of all times that I just so happen to know from my college years is Blair Staky of The Fox and She. Not only do I get tons of inspo from her because her style is on point, I also really look up to her when it comes to all things blogging. She has become, in my eyes, my mentor and when she and Jess started Blogging For Keeps, my life got a hell of a lot easier.
So many of you reach out to me asking for advice about your blogs and/or about starting your own blog and don’t get me wrong, I am so very flattered that you do that; however, let me let you in on a secret… I feel so lost all the time in this little blog world. It’s a tricky thing to know your worth when it’s time to start monetizing, how to better your photography skills, know how to approach brands when they want to collaborate, and just how to grow your blog in the best, most authentic way in general. Well, Blogging For Keeps answers all of those questions and so much more.
I started my blog out of my incredible love of food and cooking. Over time, it has become more to me than that. I’ve met so many amazing people doing this blog, I’ve pushed myself in ways I didn’t think I ever would being a stay-at-home-mom, and my love for cooking has grown even more, which I didn’t even think was possible. However, it is a lot of work and sometimes I get frustrated and feel like I am just a little dust in the wind ready to be blown away. I am not technologically savvy at all– I mean, shoot, yesterday I spent 3 hours trying to fix my damn camera! Ahh! It’s not all pretty pictures and delicious food. It’s a lot of work but work that I love and I am grateful to be doing and I am so grateful that Blair and Jess started Blogging for Keeps to help guide me along the way. Thank you, Ladies.
Anyway, I got on that rant because 1. you guys message me about blogging all the time and I wanted to share that resource with you and 2. because this ‘perfect omelet’ recipe was completely inspired by my girl, Blair. I used to always make omelets the tricky way but this way is foolproof, delicious, and the possibilities are endless! Stuff it with whatever you have on hand and enjoy your breakfast!
- 2 eggs
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 8 inch skillet with lid
- coconut oil spray (or any clean cooking spray)
- desired filling
- Heat an 8 inch skillet over medium heat.
- Meanwhile, whisk together 2 eggs with salt and pepper, to taste.
- When skillet is warm, spray with cooking spray. Pour eggs into the skillet and reduce the heat to low. Cover and let cook on low until eggs have set and cook through, about 3-5 minutes.
- Slide egg onto a plate and place desired filling on one side of the omelette. Fold in half and enjoy!
- I filled mine here with my Sweet Potatoes O'brein and wilted spinach.
