  1. What a lovely blog!! The lighting in your photographs is fantastic — is it natural light?

    • Jenna says:

      Thanks Michele! No, it’s not natural light–I do most of my cooking at night (after work), so I use an external flash (SB-600) on my camera and I bounce the light off the ceiling. If you’re interested in more details, I talked about this flash in one of the first posts I wrote in my ‘photography’ section.
      I wish I could use natural light–it’s the best option–but unfortunately by the time dinner is on the table (especially now with the time change) it’s waaaay too dark, even right next to a window.

      • Thanks so much. I’ll definitely do some reading in your photography section. I don’t have natural light either. One might say the lighting in my kitchen is “office-like.” Wretched, but I do what I can for now. :)

      • Jenna says:

        I feel your pain about the ‘office lighting’ . . . thankfully you can correct the color balance with your camera to create a warmer picture despite the bad lighting. And the power of that flash . . . I really can’t say enough about it. I use it for pretty much every food shot that goes up on this blog.

      • I was just thinking the same thing, so I’ve been trawling through your posts. What a blog it is too…, I get really excited when I come across a blog like this, love it.

    Your culinery endeavors never cease to amaze, Jenna! Looking forward to smelling that delish pot roast, come Sunday… :) I’m thinking about maybe bringing along my recipe and ingredients for a delectable cinnamon bundt cake for the potluck … Think we’d have time to bake that amidst the scrapbooking chaos?

    • Jenna says:

      Sure, if we meet early enough. =) If I have the pot roasts in the oven it might be challenging to fit in a bundt cake as well, but I’m sure we can make it work!

  3. Can’t wait to try out all these recipes. They sound fantastic!
    Also love your header pic btw. Beautiful :)

    I cannot believe you made that; it looks like a magazine picture!

    I love your photography style, mama.
    When I come through Chicago next year I’ll have to do a dinner with you!
