One suggestion - you may want to broaden your tags - they are like an index in the back of a book. You want them general enough that people looking for a specific item will have your blog pop up.
For example, on your hash brown topic you have Hash Brown Casserole and Paula Deen as tags. Go to the WordPress home page and click topics. If you search on Hash Brown Casserole on about 8 blogs show up – this makes it less visible.
I would suggest tagging this post Food, Casserole, hash browns, breakfast, Paula Deen. This way people who are looking at Food blogs are sure to see it. You will have a better chance at finding your core audience.
The same with your blackberry cobbler post – you provide great step-by-step instructions, but I won’t find them with the current tags – suggest something like Food, recipe, instructions, cooking tips, cobbler, blackberry.
