|CHOCOLATE RICOTTA MOUSSE|
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!!
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.
