How many photos are too many for a food blog?

This is an issue that I occasionally wonder about as a fairly new food blogger. What do you think?

Personally, when I'm browsing other food blogs, I love looking at gorgeous food photographs, but sometimes there are just too many and I just find myself scrolling down and skimming through them, regardless of how great they look.

Then there are times when there is one lonely picture and I just yearn for a little more. I know it's a subjective thing and it also depends on the complexity of the recipe itself, but where would you draw the line between just enough and too many?
