Thank you, I have been discussing it with a few publishing companies but I don't want to jump at the first offer that comes my way. My main concern is that the book is beautiful with lots of beautiful photos, but this can be expensive and may not work within the budgets of all publishers so I am not rushing into it.

Don't we all!! I love fried chicken although I don't eat it often!
I don't keep count but it's easy to see how many posts I have which equates to recipes and it's a whole lot!!
I've only been several tropical islands in the Caribbean, Mexico and Colombia so far. I would love to travel the rest of the world when my little one is a little older. I love all cuisines, Indian, Italian, Asian, but my favorite would be Latin fusion! I love food from South America, Mexico and the Caribbean, they cook with so much flavor!
I use a Canon Rebel with a 50 mm 1.4 lens. I only shoot in daylight, light is the most crucial part of the shot.
I don't consider myself a professional photographer, I think I still have a lot to learn but I take lots and lots of photos of my food from all different angles and just pick the ones I like best. I do a little post-processing in Photoshop to fix color, contrast, sharpening and cropping.
I buy lots of different plates, napkins, etc at Home Goods and Pier One and I always look at magazines for styling ideas.
Before I had the baby I spent a lot more time at the gym doing Zumba, kettlebells, cardio and weights but now my time is so limited so I don't go as often as I would like to. I go to yoga every week and try to do cardio at least 3 days a week. I love how I feel mentally when I go to the gym, I have more energy and I feel happier overall so I really try to make the time. But I am also running after my daughter all day so I am sure I burn lots of calories chasing her around!!
I've taken a few cooking classes for fun but I grew up with two parents that loved cooking and made all their meals from scratch. My dad is Czech so European dishes were common in my house such as pork and dumplings, and my mom is Colombian so it was also common to have rice and beans! I always helped them in the kitchen and even cooked crepes and a few simple dishes when I was very young. When you like something and do it often, you get good at it. I had many failed moments in my kitchen and still do but that is how you learn, from your mistakes!!
My family never knows what they will be having for dinner, they eat whatever I make, good and bad!! lol
They are very supportive and are always willing to let me know what they think of a dish, if it's blog worthy or not, and if it's something I should make again. Once in a while I'll get requests from my daughter, she goes through my blog and gives me a list of food she is craving.
I'm not a good planner, I may have a few recipes planned from requests that I get, but it's usually not until I am in the store that I decide what I'll be cooking that week, mostly inspired by the fresh produce in season.
I like dessert but I only eat it once in a while, my favorite desserts are warm pies and cobblers with cold ice cream. I love the combination of hot and cold in a dessert.
