Thanksgiving & a Giveaway!

**Giveaway Closed**

Hello all!

Did you have a great Thanksgiving?

Stuff yourself with far too much food?

Spend time with loved ones or friends?

My grandparents were in town this past week and it was really nice to spend some time with them. I was lucky enough to have the entire week off.The Cooks


Yes, the entire week. I know, unheard of.

Living so far away from family, I don’t get to see them that often so it was nice to see them and catch up and spend a holiday with them.

We spent time watching the Peanuts specials on ABC, which I just can never resist watching. Who doesn’t love snoopy??

We spent time screaming at the television during Penn State football, KU basketball and the Kansas City Cheifs losing.

My grandparents spent countless hours helping at our new home that Patrick and I are trying to build together.

Overall, it was a pretty great holiday. I need a break from all the eating haha

I hope that your holiday was filled with laughter, love and lots of delicious NomNoms.

Today I am thrilled to be sharing with you a new book called:


The Unforgettable Photograph: 228 Ideas, Tips & Secrets for Taking The Best Pictures of Your Life.


Unforgettable Photograph by George Lange from Lange Studio on Vimeo.
It is an almost completely non-technical book that shows easy ways to take better pictures of anything. Scott Mowbray, the Cooking Light Magazine Editor, based this off of the great work of George Lange.

George Lange is a top pro photographer who devotes much of his everyday life to shooting pictures of family and friends.

Tis the season when people start to take lots of photos with their smart phones and point and shoots of food, family and friends.


Sneak peak inside!


I am excited to reveal that you can get your very own copy of this book to help you know what to look for in photos of just about anything.

If for some reason you don’t win the contest, you get this book on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

I am so excited to be giving this book away, because we food bloggers are always looking to better our photographs.

I read through the book already and it has some really interesting perspectives on photographs and capturing moments instead of staging them.

Anyways, so how do you win!?!
