dream job involves food - is that surprising?

Thursday, November 29, 2012

I think I've found my dream job - a food photographer. It makes perfect sense because a good majority of my day revolves around prepping for and partaking of good eats, and the rest of the time I dream about food. Ask Jared, I LOVE MY FOOD, and NO I DON'T SHARE. He's still learning the latter part of that statement :) And being a food photographer would just open up so many doors for yummy things to get into my tummy!

So I made a batch of this ricey-goodness at the beginning of the week and I've been inhaling it every day for lunch. It's kinda like me and this skillet are dating because I'm always counting down the hours until lunch time and get rather excited when noon rolls around and we meet yet again. So today my food photographer self whipped out my cam because a) it's been 3 days and it's still DELISH, b) it's full of pretty colors, c) it's healthy, and d) I want you to make it!

Recipe found here. I substituted brown rice for the quinoa and did frozen corn instead of fresh. Now ready, set, go get your closest skillet!


  1. If you haven't already, you should check out Matt Armendariz at http://mattbites.com/ He's an amazing food photographer and his blog is a joy to read! :)

  2. i love following your cute blog! i have to say- a good friend and i have a new food blog (www.butterwithasideofbread.com)- i LOVE food, but the only thing i don't enjoy is that as soon as it's done, i want to EAT it! not take pictures!! it is a fun little adventure though:) i sure love food. oh, and yumm!... that recipe looks delish!

    1. I love your blog! Thanks for sharing your tasty bites!

  3. Mmmmmm that dies look delish!

  4. Yum! The best thing about this recipe is that it sounds like something both Maile and I would enjoy -- Thanks for sharing, and the photos are beautiful!

  5. I love rice! I could eat it every meal! Like seriously...I think it's my Asian half LOL
    Great pics too! I always want to take pictures of food I've made but never do...I blame the kids and having to cut their food into pieces which makes me tired and the food not look so good anymore ;-) That and I'm probably just lazy. HA!
    Following you back love!

  6. Ha ha! This is so funny, reminds me of the one and only blog post that I made on that blog that you helped me create. Now if only you would have been my food photographer, perhaps i could have kept the recipes rolling out!

  7. Okay, Kendra this is a great recipe. Thank you for sharing. I'm making it tomorrow, I will let you know how it turns out. I love the sound of the vinagerette. (spelling?) Happy almost Friday!
