PB&J

Alright everyone… it’s time to get real.  Peanut Butter and Jam sandies (otherwise known as PB&J) are maybe one of the worlds better inventions.  From its beginning, it was a match made in Heaven.    This magical union supposedly originated in the USA and according to Wikipedia, “A 2002 survey showed the average American will have eaten 2,500 of these sandwiches before graduating from high school.”  I believe I am one of those stats they are talking about.

You can make a PB&J without using real peanut butter – this we have learned from all of our allergy friends out there — cashew butter, almond butter or even no-nut peabutter – can still do the trick.

Now, we happened to stumble on the greatest Buzzfeed post — The most delicious pull we got from their take on PB&J’s came in the form of French Toast —- YUMMMMM!

Once again… YUM.  

If you’ll all excuse me… I’m going to the kitchen.

Happy Thursday!

Nobody ever really thinks about Thursday.  The ‘real’ middle child of the week.  Many would think that Wednesday has it the worst, but they are wrong.  Although it gets misspelled every now and again, good old Wednesday is the peak of many a week.  We know that we’ve made it through the dreary Mondays and the hopeful Tuesdays. We can look forward to the ever so casual Thursday and the excitement of Friday.    But Thursday on its own, well, it seldom gets the credit it deserves.

We like Thursdays because of its hype for the weekend. We like Thursdays for the fact that its different – we use an ‘R’ to abbreviate it.  It’s homey, its calming, its pub night, its Thursday.

So, Happy Thursday!, everyone!  Get out there and celebrate!

Zoom

 

 

Zooming and  cropping are little edits that  can change the entire composition of your images.

When we zoom, we are able to see details in our images that we may not have noticed to the naked eye.  We see the grains, the pores, the dust.  We see the reflections, the shine and the wrinkles.  It is always very important to look at your entire image at 100% to make sure that you have captured your image in the best possible way that you intended — that 33.7% zoom is simply not good enough and more often than not, quite deceiving.

By cropping, we are able to make our images much stronger.  We get rid of the extras, the excess and the distractions. We allow the audience to see the details that are the most important.  Here, you see a photo of some cute kittens on a bed.  Unless the cats got in the way of your pillow shot… start cropping and keep only the cats.  The pillows will always be pillows, but the eyes and expressions of those kittens will change faster than you can say ‘meow’.

Happy Zooming!  Happy Cropping!

Go ahead… smell ’em!

It is definitely the beginning of a wonderfully warm and sunny spring season!  We have changed the clocks, cleaned our homes and started the insane task of switching out our winter clothes for summer ones in the closet.   Yes, the weather has has a mind of its own… it snowed an incredible foot and a half just the other day, yet managed to melt and disappear by the time we all finished shoveling the driveway!  It’s time, dear Mother Nature.  We’re ready.  Bring on the sun! Bust out the sandals!  Let’s get outside and play!

Delicious!

 

Do you every get that desire for a delicious, ooey, gooey pizza?  I sure do!

There’s not much that comes close to a weekday dinner splurge of picking up that phone and calling in for a pie or two.

Whether it be a plain Margherita or piled high with all the fixings, sometimes you just need a slice.

pizzaMamma Mia! Thatsa’ good lookin’ pie!
