I’ve been playing around with my food pictures and using different backgrounds instead of just the plain white like before. Do you miss the plain white or do you like me changing it up a bit? I’d love to “style” the photos more, but I literally make a plate, put it on the background, take a picture, put in on the dinner table, and then we eat. I’m pretty quick about it and I don’t like to eat cold food, so I go as fast as I could, and I don’t take too much time to make it all look fancy. Then, our dinner tables really look like this. It’s just a regular family having dinner on a regular table with regular dinner messes. It’s totally not styled and just real life. Sometimes, I’ll be intentional on making sure placemats, napkins, and dishes match, but most times I just let the girls set the table, so I’m cool with whatever.

    Oh no, there’s no link to the roasted cauliflower! That looks so absolutely delicious, I want to make it!

      Thank you for telling me. I totally forgot to link and now it’s adjusted.

    The pictures are beautiful, as always, and I particularly liked the wood background, but I did question if they were your photos or if they had been pulled from somewhere else, just because you usually do white!

      Thank you for your feedback. I really appreciate it. I will keep playing around with backgrounds!

    I have always loved your white background for your food posts. It really makes the dishes pop and it sort of feels like your ‘signature’. I can totally recognize it on Pinterest. And I like the simplicity of it. But that’s just my opinion – do what feels right to you!

    I’m just catching up on the past few weeks of your posts. (Although I don’t comment often, I never miss one!) I loved the video of your daughter singing “Let It Go”. Priceless!
