Meringue 12 Ways

Long story short: I can’t eat meringue because it makes my tongue itch. (An egg white allergy? Who knows.) But I think it’s so luxurious looking and love the idea of it, so much so that I want to make some for others to enjoy at some point. Have you had it? Do you love it? Here are twelve delicious looking recipes to investigate.

Rice Krispie Treats 12 Ways

August means back-to-school and school means rice krispie treats – it’s simple math really. When I was in elementary school few kids had crazy food allergies like today, so it was always exciting when one of my classmates had a birthday and their parents sent along a classroom treat to celebrate. My favorite was always rice krispie treats. I loved their texture and the sticky way they pull apart, and I still do. Check out these twelve recipes for some creative takes on the classic!

Tips + Tricks: Food Styling and Photography

Apt 34-Design Crush
Apt. 34

 

I’m endlessly fascinated by food styling and photography because when it’s executed in an interesting way, well, it just doesn’t get any better. Time and time again I find I’m drawn to a certain style of the art that’s equal parts delicious and creative – I definitely want to jump into the photo and devour whatever’s on display but I’m also deconstructing just what makes it so beautiful.

Check out these tips and tricks whether you’re looking to amp up your Instagram lunch shots, an aspiring food blogger, or just love amateur photography.

  1. Play with light and shadow
  2. Experiment with interesting cropping
  3. Take direct overhead photos
  4. Play with action shots
  5. Show off the messy aftermath
  6. Display deconstructed ingredients
  7. Showcase the monochromatic

Muesli 12 Ways

Muesli, aka raw oatmeal, came into my life several years ago on a business trip. I was looking for the healthiest option at the hotel’s grab and go breakfast and went for it, having no idea what I was eating other than cold oatmeal. But I really liked it and noticed how it kept me full for a long time, atypical for breakfast foods and my body. I’ve since made muesli for myself and am always looking for ways to mix it up and take advantage of seasonal fruit to add in. Check out these twelve recipes and let me know, are you a fan?
