Green Beans with Walnuts and Blue Cheese {Low-FODMAP}

Low-FODMAP Green Beans with Walnuts & Blue Cheese  /  Delicious as it Looks

Fresh green beans are excellent this time of year here in Iowa. August is probably the best time of year for fresh home grown produce in the Midwest. Sweet corn, tomatoes, green beans, it's all so good right now!

Food Photography with Dianne Part 1: Setup & Lighting

Food Photography Lighting & Setup with Delicious as it Looks

I've been taking photos of food for quite a while. I first started in 2009. I was bored one day and decided to make some cookies. I found a cookie recipe on Allrecipes.com that I decided to make and saw that you could upload a photo of your food. I thought, "why not?" I had just gotten my first digital camera and decided to see what it could do. It wasn't a very fancy camera, just a point and shoot (not a DSLR), but I made it work.

L.A. and Art

My husband and I don't travel much. Most of the time we think it's too much of a hassle and we are usually content to just stay in the comfort of our home. Every once in a while we venture out when we have the opportunity. We recently had the chance to fly out to Los Angeles. I haven't been to LA since I was 12 years old (so that makes it 30 years ago!) and my husband had never been to California before, so we were excited.

Leftover Steak & Blue Cheese Grain Bowl

Leftover Steak & Blue Cheese Grain Bowl {Low-FODMAP, Gluten-Free}  /  Delicious as it Looks

Well, I have had the most difficult time getting back into the swing of things since getting back from our little mini-vacation to LA. I've been busy playing catch-up on my work (even though I tried to work ahead before we left - I guess it wasn't enough!), so I haven't had much time or energy to work on the blog. But here I am, refreshed and full of inspiration from being someplace other than Iowa! I came back from LA with a bunch of ideas for recipes, but I just need to find the energy to carry them out.

Low-FODMAP Baba Ganoush (Eggplant Dip)

Low-FODMAP Baba Ganoush (Eggplant Dip)  /  Delicious as it Looks

I first had baba ganoush at group dinner outing at a restaurant. Someone at the table ordered it and was kind enough to share. If that hadn't happened, I don't think I would have ever ordered it or tried it myself. I thought it was unusual, but pretty good. My husband thought that it was just "neutral."
