A 10 Minute Lesson to Photographing Images with More Pizzazz via Digital Photography School

Even the most seasoned photographer wants to continue to stretch their creativity. I know I do!

One simple activity you can do in your spare time is to find new ways to photograph everyday, plain things. Yup, the things you see or use every day; no models, no glamorous set-ups, no breathtaking locations. You don’t even need to do this with a fancy DSLR camera or have a significant amount of time. The lesson you learn can be achieved in 10 minutes once a week, using a $100 camera or a smart phone.

Think hot toddies are reserved for only the coldest of cold days of winter? Think again! Call me antsy, but the the minute it’s the least bit chilly, my go-to cocktail starts heating up. Move over pumpkin spice latte, it’s toddy season!

Leftover Quinoa: Make Patties via Stacey Snacks

Years ago, 101 Cookbooks introduced me to quinoa, and I haven’t looked back.

It’s delicious and nutritious, and gluten free for all of you GF people out there.

Here is a great way to use up leftover quinoa from last night.

I had at least a cup leftover of cooked quinoa, so I figured I would try a different variation of Heidi’s quinoa patties.

Lemon Poppyseed Muffins~ and Spooky things:) via La Table de Nana

Every time I try a new muffin at Les Moulins Lafayette ..that I fall in love with..I try and recreate it..This time I only had to try 2 recipes and on the second one..I found my perfect Lemon Poppyseed Muffin.
It’s sooo close.. in my mind it’s spot on.
It is from Cook’s Illustrated.

A neat thing about this recipe..is that you can whip up a batch..put them in a muffin tin..cover with cling and refrigerate unbaked..They say so!
So I will make these for Christmas morning I am thinking:)

Fermentation Farm: The oldest form of food preparation makes a return via Modern Farmer

An hour outside of Nashville, Tennessee, down a dirt road and up a steep, curving hill in the woods, you’ll find fermentation guru Sandor Katz in a solar-powered log cabin cooking goat testicles for lunch.

The 12 students accepted to Katz’s early summer 3-week fermentation residency eagerly crowd around the kitchen table, watching him trim and slice the bulbous product, a gift from a nearby farmer friend. “They look kind of like onions?” one student muses. Surprising these students isn’t easy.

The lowly tripod – the unsung hero behind so many fantastic shots – finally gets its day in the spotlight here on dPS.

Do you want to photograph the stars? You’ll need a tripod. Want to get silky smooth waterfall photos? Yep tripod again. Need to photograph an HDR to extend the dynamic range of your scene? Oh yes, tripod required there too.

Basically, if you want to do anything more than point and shoot, you’ll need to bring your three legged friend along with you.

If these pancakes can’t be a part of your most immediate NOW, I’d really love for them to be a part of your most immediate weekend.

They’re indulgent. They’re best made in the late morning in your house-slippers. Allow the stars to align.

Video: Solving the Mysteries of Brunelleschi’s Dome via Arch Daily

A new hour long documentary for PBS’ series, Building the Great Cathedrals, explores the mystery of how, in the 15th century, Florentine architect Filippo Brunelleschi constructed one of the largest domes the world had ever seen. Winning what could be considered one of the earliest architectural competitions, Brunelleschi developed a unique system that allowed construction on the dome to occur while services were being conducted in the cathedral 100 metres below. The team in this episode model this freestanding structure in an attempt to understand just how Brunelleschi achieved such a feat of Renaissance engineering.

I have a soft spot for brownies. Well… actually, don’t we all?

Brownies were the first thing I learned how to bake in the kitchen. My parents kept the flour, sugar, and those gnarly bars of unsweetened chocolate in a little cabinet just within reach of my little 8 year-old body. It only took me one nibble of the unsweetened chocolate to figure out that it was not at all suitable for sneak-snacking… but the box of unsweetened chocolate had step-by-step instructions on how to turn the dark blocks into something entirely delicious, aka BROWNIES!
