Blogging is very comforting but sometimes things get complicated because sometimes your assumptions misled you and blogging is something which you can’t even discuss with your friends and family because for them it is an unknown territory. So if you get strucked somewhere you don’t even know the way to come out.
As a routine check I open facebook to check how people reacting to my posts and I saw a post from a blogger, who was upset from some of the blogger, because they copy steps of instructions from the recipe. Even I had this misconception that when you are giving link to any site, you can copy the whole recipes. To clear my confusion I chatted with one of my blogger friend and she told me you can rephrase the steps but can’t copy.
You must be wondering why I am sharing this with you because may be many new bloggers like me didn’t know about this fact. When I started blogging I didn’t even gave link to sites from where I have taken the recipe, but when I came to know about it I immediately updated my previous posts by giving appropriate link. I think we should respect what other bloggers think and must learn from other mistakes.
Ahhh… lots of serious task, let’s talk about common interest. This time I bake my best ever Granola. It is certainly the best granola recipe and so easy to make. You won’t require yogurt, chocolate, fruit or just name any other luscious thing to accompany this tasty granola. This was my third attempt of making Granola. First was a total disaster and I had to totally throw the whole batch in the bin because I didn’t stir it in between and it got burnt. Stirring is a very very important step while making granola, so that it can bake evenly. I made some changes in the original recipe. My second tryst was a success too. Check out my previous granola recipe.
