What do you look for in a cooking blog?

I am working on a food and cooking blog, and am looking for input on what people like and hope for when they visit a food blog. I know everyone here is sensitive to spammy posts - I'm not going to post a link or even the title - but I'm just hoping for advice.

Personally I'm tired of food porn - 10 gorgeous pictures, one recipe, no content. I like to read, and to read about cooking processes, techniques, and real-life situations like cats jumping on the counter and mistakes and spills. So my question is this: what is your ideal food blog like?
