Nice blog, like the strong title image. I would think about your title at the top of the page though: "haroldemccray.com". This isn't very descriptive, in fact its not at all obvious who your pronounce it! Ha-rold dem-cray, Har-old Emc-cray, errr. Its only looking at the footer do I see its really Harold E McCray...
If your blog is called 'Artist in the Kitchen', then make that the title. It'll give readers a better clue as to what the site is about and help Google listings.
Also your subtitle: "Gardening, cooking, photographing and writing". Swap photographing => photography. Will read much better. Even if its loses the consistency of the 'ing of each word - I presume that's why your chose photographing, yeah?
Your categories widget, its currently a drop down menu with 2 options hidden inside. Would be much better to just swap it to two links. Visitors don't need to click on it, to see what categories you have then.
Why is each recipe a huge jpg? None of the text inside will be indexed by Google, or searchable with your search box. Could be good to find all recipes using artichokes. Also, the jpg compression has done no favours to the simple black/white text, making it quite blurry. You'd be better off making this separate posts/pages you link to. Definitely find a nice 'print page' plugin though, I don't have a computer screen handy in the kitchen!
