I have been reorganizing my posts a bit so the categories are a little different.
I have renamed the "Cooking" blogs as Cooking/Recipes. This category excludes those dull/silly, "I made dinner last night" blogs and only contains the dull/silly "I made dinner last night and here is how I did it," or "Here is a link to the recipe," or "Here is the actual recipe," or "Here is a link to a recipe I would like to make in the future." Anything that doesn't inlude any form of instruction (no matter how free-form some of my "recipes" are) or links to said instruction has been moved to the General category.
You may now carry on with your normal lives.
