Playing with Food

Lemon Garlic Herb Roast Chicken

I have never roasted a chicken before. Until now!!! I’m so proud of it! Like I said, I’ve never done this before.

Woohoo!

Guess what? My Smoked Gouda Spirals was featured on TasteSpotting! It’s pretty tough to get a photo accepted on Tastespotting. I’m new to food photography and have nowhere near the professional cameras and lighting set ups some people I have.
