Photoshop Masking, Breaking Through The Confusion

If you are taking your own photographs for your blog, photoshop is a necessary tool, it is also like walking through mud. The book is almost as many pages as War and Peace, but the characters are not Russian. I have found after reading and re-reading the Photoshop CS5 book I found that there needs to be an easier way to understand. I have found a few short cuts and will share these with you. I hope my experience will be helpful. For the The Mousse au Chocolate I started with a studio background, using the the quick mask tool to cut out the...

Sharing Family Traditions, Pecan Pie

Sydney and I are blessed with a plethora of readers, some who have enjoyed sharing family stories, and treasured family recipes. A week or so ago a regular reader, Carolyn K surprised us with her family’s traditional pecan pie. Carolyn wrote how once a year she throws cation and self-control to the wind, and indulges in baking her family’s traditional pecan pie recipe. Even the years she is unable to go home for the holidays she bakes this timeless traditional pie. The aroma as the pie bakes in her oven brings her heart and soul...

Blogging The Good, The Bad, The Frustrating but it in All it Should Be Fun

It goes without saying Sydney is my heart and soul. I remember when she was born, the nurse took her off my stomach (just to clean her). It was in that moment I had an epiphany ..that this tiny little newborn owned my heart. DF was just starting his career, while we were paying off his student loans; I didn’t want to leave Sydney with a sitter or day care, I decided to start a catering business out of our house. It seemed the perfect answer I could work with Sydney by my side. I wouldn’t say it was easy; it was challenging and...

Bobbie Talks Blogging

  Sydney and I work on Bobbie’s Baking Blog side by side, with out her editing and poof reading every article I would not be able to post as often as I do. Blogging is a full time job, sometimes more than 8 hours of work. When we first decided to start a blog I admit I did not know what I was getting us into. My main love is food; creating food, baking food, learning about food, and of coarse eating food. Photography was something I did for family functions and to record Sydney’s life as she went from a cherub little baby to a...

2010 A Year of Change and Growth

So much has changed since this time last year. When the year began Sydney was a senior in high school, my husband was still the CIO for CRI, and I had just began dipping my toe into the pool of blogging, (What a big pool). I can honestly say I did not understand this new “blogging world.” The first few blogs lacked structure, the stories were dry, and the pictures I posted were grainy, dull, and the styling was boring. All four of these pictures were shot with a sony point and shoot, in haste, and I was pretty “green.”...
