Well, this break took a bit longer than I expected, but I was really trying to figure out what to do with this blog. I've been researching about what makes a blog successful and there's a consensus: the website must provide UNIQUE and VALUABLE content for the readers. Piece of cake, right? Not for me.

The Internet is such a wonderful place because you can find anything you want. So, there are probably zillions of pages talking about food. How can I say something new about it when there's so much information out there? I'm still trying to answer that question.
I the mean time, I tried to figure out what information I do have that's slightly different from the rest. In this search for uniqueness, I decided to talk more about what it means to live and eat in the Caribbean, Latin America and Venezuela. It took me a while to realize that my regular meals (arepas, for example) might be new for some of my readers. Be prepared to read a lot about tropical meals and the wonderful fruits we enjoy here.

Furthermore, I tried to understand what seemed valuable to you, the readers. I'm still unsure about this, but my attempts at replicating recipes are gone, at least for a while. From now on, I'll focus more on writing about the nutritional value of certain foods, the history behind some famous meals, scientific facts and cultural trivia.

Finally, I decided to have a more dynamic approach to this blog. I'd like to know what your food related questions are and I'll do the research for you. I'll post my findings once a month, depending on how many questions I receive. Are you ready to start asking?
That's all for now, folks. I hope you enjoy these changes and that we spend more time together. Thank you very much for your support.
