2016 – 365 Challenge 34/365 – Rocky

Today’s CY365 theme is rocky.  My picture doesn’t reflect this but I guess we can pretend the sprinkles are rocky.


Lisa’s 365 Project 14/365 – Say Cheese & My Own Design Seeds

Every Wednesday, I pick up our little cousin from school.  He is so sweet and we all look forward to having him come over just as much as he looks forward to us picking him up.  Last night I didn’t feel like cooking so we had cheese pizza and they really enjoyed that.  When I brought out my camera, little man grinned and said cheese!!!

So…on another subject, I love Design Seeds. I receive them via e-mail everyday and they always make me happy.  What is even more exciting is The CoffeeShop Blog now has a color palette template where I can try my hand at creating my own little designs.  I decided to take one the green velvet cupcake pictures and give it a try.

Lisa’s 365 Project 11/365 – St. Patrick’s Day

In my house we don’t make a big to do about St. Patrick’s Day.  We might wear green and that’s usually about it.  This year, I decided to take it just a little step further.  I didn’t do corned beef, I’ll try that next year.  Instead we had roast beef and I made yummy green velvet cupcakes.  I saw a pin on pintrest for this and decided that I had to try it.  It was pretty easy, just find your favorite red velvet recipe and instead of adding red food coloring add green instead. I used one bottle of McCormick green food coloring.

2013 Monthly Photography Challenge – Food Photography

Hi everyone…I am back with another new post for this year’s monthly photography challenge that I am participating in with some very fun and talented ladies from Clickin Moms.

This month’s challenge was food photography.  Yummy.  I was pretty excited about this challenge because love looking at pictures of food, and finding new recipes.  There is lots of inspiration out there.  I also read a book called Plat to Pixel by Helene Dujardin.  I purchased it last year and thought this would be a great time to read it.

Taking the pictures was fun but even more fun was eating he goodies afterwards.  I didn’t try any special recipes just easy stuff I had around the house.  Maybe later own I’ll try some new recipes and post the pictures here.

The cookies were the Nestle Toll House turtle cookies, the strawberry shortcake was just short cakes from the grocery store with some cut up strawberries.  I put sugar on them and let them chill in the refrigerator for a little bit then placed some strawberries on the shortcake and drizzled some of the syrup they created from the sugar on top.  I topped with a little Cool Whip and a strawberry.  The mac ‘n’ cheese was homemade.  I baked the peach cobbler myself….but Sarah Lee  did all the hard work. The yummy cupcakes were from my local Bi-Lo grocery store.

Well I hope you enjoyed viewing this month’s challenge.  Please keep the blog circle going and head over to Melinda’s blog and check out her food photography this month.  Be sure to check come back for next month’s challenge….Interesting Perspectives.
