Don’t Let the Picture Intimidate You

And now for breakfast this Sunday morning! Does it still count as breakfast when you eat at noon?


I guess it is called brunch. Or, it is called sleeping through breakfast and eating lunch.

I can’t call it lunch though, because knowing me, I will still eat 6 small meals before I get to sleep.

This is quite the dilemma isn’t it? Haha, we will see!

Anyways, moving on to the food! I had an Ezekiel Cinnamon Raisin English Muffin (I almost lost my breathe typing that run on title) with Peanut Butter & Honey

I love this creamed honey from Trader Joe’s for spreading!


This morning, I wanted to share a couple of fabulous new blogs that I stubbled across. I will be following these daily now.

I love, love reading through blogs in the morning. Seeing other people light, brings light to my own life.

Plus, I absolutely love supporting other blogs. If you guys have blogs that you always read, please share!

Here are the new blogs that I added to my blogroll (located at the bottom of the sidebar on the left side of HHTS):

And yes, I love making my food (and the pictures) look nice.

I try to be as realistic as I can, but sometimes, setting your food in the planter for a picture is just more pleasurable to look at.

I eat in the planter all the time… who doesn’t? 😉

Never be discouraged by a picture.

I think this happens with readers. The point of us bloggers taking time to make the food look nice, is for the pleasure of looking at it; a nice picture even makes the food more enjoyable to eat. Don’t be discouraged, thinking “that looks way too put together, I can’t make that.” I know some of you feel this way at times, because I do too when I look at a certain blogs, or a recipe book. It’s normal to feel that like, but don’t tell yourself you can’t do it. You can!

Put yourself in a bloggers position (or maybe you are a food blogger): when you take the time to post your food to the world, you obviously love food, and you want to share the beauty of it. Of course you want to have great pictures. It doesn’t mean that you took more time making it… it doesn’t mean you’re any better at cooking or putting things together… it doesn’t mean that you’re better than anyone else… it just means that this is your hobby, and you want to share it to the world through your own creative eyes, and you want it to be enjoyable to other peoples eyes! You can’t taste the food that we make, so the way we make it taste good is through a fabulous picture. I think that last sentence explains it pretty well!

Have you ever been discouraged to make something, because it looked too good?

  1. Thanks so much for adding me to your blogroll! I used to think of the well put together food on blogs as intimidating too when I was a reader a couple of years ago and now the whole photography part has completely grown on me and become my favorite part of blogging. I’ve definitely also done the food in the planter thing 😉
