What does food have to do with photography?
Well, I suppose if you make up a recipe and cook something you should probably take a picture of it. lol!
This is more of a personal get-to-know me blog. There are lots of things I love and one of them is cooking. It’s like a creative outlet for me and I also love to eat. My style of cooking is to find a recipe, get a general idea of what should happen and then wander around the kitchen and find interesting things to add to my dish. That’s the creative part. I like to expirement and sometimes it turns out wonderful and other times… well, lets just say sometimes my husband is “not happy”. 🙂
I usually don’t write things down, but I did make one really wonderful stuffed bell pepper dish and I wanted to document it for future use. So here’s my secret recipe. For those of you who love to cook, give it a try. Also, one of my favorite blogs to follow is my cousin Ashley’s. She’s an amazing inventor of recipes! Be warned though, if you visit her blog you’ll probably feel inspired and end up in the kitchen. (Notwithoutsalt.com)
