It’s a Hit!

So I recently posted a picture of some cute Halloween treats I made for a photo shoot on my website blog (click here to see it). The image also got accepted on Foodgawker and Tastespotting (two awesome sites for finding recipes and pretty food pictures). I submit photos to them on a regular basis. Sometimes… Continue Reading

Apple Dip

A friend of mine gave me this recipe a couple years ago. I think it beats outs store bought caramel. Even better, it is extremely easy to make. Here is how it goes: 8 oz. Cream Cheese Softened 1/2 c Brown Sugar 1/2 c White Sugar Mix it all up and top with crushed Heath… Continue Reading

Bill was Baptized

Two week ago my Grandma’s husband Bill was baptized. It was an amazing experience. All of the 8 missionaries that helped teach him were there, along with about every other missionary in the area. All of the grandchildren sang two songs and the missionaries sang the closing song. There was standing room only in the… Continue Reading

Halloween Treats

I wanted to do a more complex shoot, meaning not just a close up of food but the whole table type thing. So I made a bunch of Halloween treats over the last two days and gave it a shot. So here you will see owl cupcakes (idea from One Charming Party), sugar cookies, candy… Continue Reading

Kevin spends lots of time studying and I spend time thinking of concepts for images. We… Continue Reading

Pretzel Hugs

I eat way more of these than I should. I love hugs and I love salt (especially pretzel salt) and the combination of the two are wonderful! It’s probably a good thing I don’t have any of these items at my house on a regular basis or I would have some major health problems I’m… Continue Reading

A Utah Classic

Every Utah food blogger probably has to have some form of Jell-o on their blog at some point right? Well, I can’t say I’m generally a huge fan of Jell-o but… my mom’s layered Jell-o Salad (it’s still funny to me to call it a salad) is really good. So try it out! I don’t… Continue Reading

A beautiful dinner! Balsamic Feta Chicken 12-15 chicken tenders of 4 chicken breasts 1… Continue Reading
