My new camera lens!

star1 005

  ISO: 1600 F stop: 5.6 Shutter speed: 20 seconds I got a new lens people and I'm so excited! Besides food, another subject that I LOVE to shoot is the night sky. I could look up at the stars all night long. Fargo is terrible for light pollution, so we have to go out into the country somewhere to get a good shot. The lens I bought was  a 11-24mm wide angle lens and so far I'm really loving it. There weren't these many stars when I was taking  pictures last night and the c ...

Candied Walnuts and Chicken Salad

walnut 037

You want to know what term I don't get? Clean eating. It makes me think of someone who eats and cleans the house at the same time. I'm picturing a person chowing down on a piece of lettuce while they're sweeping the floor. Ha ha get it? Good. That's my joke for the day. Hope it made you laugh a bit. :) I'm sharing this salad recipe for everyone today because it's what I usually get when I go to the deli. I love walnuts, chicken, feta cheese, and dried cranberries on top of romaine ...

The Hangover Quesadilla

Happy 2015! Last year was a good year for this blog, and I can't wait to see what this year brings! The best thing I ever did for this blog, was to buy a book on food photography and practice taking better pictures. The book I bought was Tasty Food Photography, you can get it on Pinch of Yum's site.  Two of my recipes were featured on the Huffington Post and 1 was featured on Buzzfeed. I would like to see my site traffic grow even higher this year, and  get more recipes featured. P ...

Cake Batter Oreo Blondies

Cake Batter Oreo Blondies 005

Using store bought cake mix and just 3 simple ingredients you can make these cake batter Oreo blondies in just seconds. This could be dangerous! I love simple baking recipes like this that require using a box cake mix. Although, that can be really bad for me. After this I'll be testing different flavored cake mixes. My pantry has a lot of boxes of cake mix, because I like to buy them when they go under 1.00. That is a steal.  It's also fun to see what you can put in these blondies.  Usually, m ...

Cowboy Bacon Beans

I used to have a long list of categories on this page that contained the weight watcher points and if it was a weight watcher recipe or not. For some strange reason that disappeared and I apologizefor that. I'm thinking about just having 3 different categories on my page now which would be Bacon, Weight Watchers, and Really Fattening recipes. I've been noticing a trend on my blog lately and those are the only three kind of recipes which people seem to like. ;) One of my favorite things to do ...

Homemade Bacon

homemadebacon

I made homemade bacon in the oven for the first time. I've had quite a lot of free time to myself recently and will have a lot of it coming up pretty soon. I'm hoping I can find a job really fast or else I'll be bored out of my mind. :( Anyways... The first step to making homemade bacon is to find a good butcher. I went to the butcher where I live in Fargo, ND on University Drive. It's a little nice meat place called Prime Cut Meats. The guy there was very nice. Ask for a pork belly loin. The ...
