These soft pretzels pair perfectly with a warm, spicy beer cheese made with sharp cheddar. Make sure to drink the rest of your F5 while preparing!
It seems like the entire state of Oklahoma is celebrating! On October 1, a law passed in the 2016 election finally went into effect. We can now have beer and wine in our grocery stores, and cold beer in liquor stores. Liquor stores can also sell 20% of non-alcoholic products, such as limes, wine openers, mixers and more. This will change the whole landscape of grocery stores, and honestly it was long overdue. Lots of retailers are celebrating, especially all of the craft beer breweries in the state, since they will be available in grocery stores all across the state.
Hi friends! I am back with a super fun post about food photography. Over the past year or so, I have made it a goal to get better at food photography and photography in general. I have learned how to set up my shots, how to edit and what looks good vs. what doesn’t. Keep in mind I am not a professional, but I have been constantly observing and trying to learn what works for me and my website/brand. I have grown my Instagram following by posting these photos, and have had so much fun doing it!
Now I am starting with iPhone photography, because that’s what I have been using the last year. I have used an iPhone 7 Plus and have recently upgraded to the XS Max. I also use my Sony a6000 camera for bigger projects and blog posts, mainly for the ease of shooting in raw and editing in Lightroom. We will get to the ins and outs of “big” cameras down the line as I learn more about them. (because I am a hardcore newbie and hobbyist!) For now – read on for my tips and tricks to get better at iPhone food photography. iPhone cameras are AMAZING and I will totally vouch for them.
This blog post details my trip to Sandos Playacar, an all-inclusive resort in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. What I liked, what I didn’t like, and if I would go back!
Hello friends! It’s been a minute since I have chatted with you via blog post. I’ve missed you! I have been in sunny Mexico the past weekend, and I wanted to hit you with a quick recap of my trip.
This trip came up very suddenly as a bachelorette party for one of my best friends getting married, so I could not miss it. Through another bridesmaid, we stayed at a Royal Hacienda at Sandos Playacar, which is located in Playa Del Carmen, about an hour away from Cancun. This was my first trip out of the country and to Mexico, so needless to say I was excited.
I’ve been waiting to write this review for a time where I can focus my mind on the greatness that is Simply Falafel. Buried within the heart of Edmond, it’s some of the most authentic Mediterranean/Middle Eastern food available in the city. I always, always always have a top notch meal here. Part of that is due to the food, but mostly the hospitality of the owner, Magid Assaleh.
I have to tell you, I have a long history will Simply Falafel. I know you wouldn’t peg me for it, but I lived in Edmond for about 6 years. Four years for my college degree, and then I hung around as an employee at the UCO Alumni Relations Office. I lived in a 600 sq ft garage apartment with no Internet, no A/C, and the bathroom was connected to the kitchen. I watched a lot of Friends on DVD, took walks around campus and I always had a styrofoam box of spicy Simply Falafel hummus in the fridge.
