Thank You, Blog World #7

Time is speeding by – I’m not quite sure how today is December 1, but here we are. I am taking advantage of a slow Saturday, waking up with a cup (or 2) of coffee, staying in my PJs for as long as possible, and perusing cookbooks and blogs as I think of the meals I will create in the week ahead.

Coffee, Breakfast, and Meal Planning

With Thanksgiving behind us, it’s time to start preparing for the holidays. I’m moving more slowly into the holidays than some, no decorations are up yet, and no gifts have been bought. Today I will be working on lists of what to get for each member of our family. But first, it’s once again my turn to say “Thank You” to my fellow bloggers, as we do on the first of each month.

Thank You, Blog World…

Caitlin’s underwater method is fabulous! I have always been intimidated by pomegranates, and so I rarely eat them. My mom and aunt told me horror stories about the staining powers of pomegranate juice, so I’m not sure I ever would have attempted to remove those loveley seeds if I had not found this method.

Caitlin’s method worked perfectly. Trust me, you want to try this!

Food Photography

Lately, I have been finding myself more and more interested in improving my photography skills. I love reading tips from other bloggers, and recently discovered a blog all about food photography! While I am by no means an expert, I am getting more and more comfotable with the camera. Here are some of my favorite resources:
