Frequently Asked Questions

Got a question for me? or perhaps need an explanation of one of the features on the site? Here a few of the common questions I get…

How do you make your nutrition labels?

As a food scientist, I love information. I use the WP Recipe Maker plugin, which allows the ability to enter the ingredients and serving size. The plugin uses the FastSecret Platform to pull nutritional data from brands around the world. I still have to make manual modifications as I don’t feel this information is 100% correct, so please use this feature as more of a guide or approximation.

What camera do you use?

I use a Canon 5D Mark IV with a 24-105mm f/4 lens and 100mm macro for the close-up food shots. I strive to have my food photography style clean and simple, focusing on showcasing the beauty of the food without overloading the shots with too many props.

What photo editing program do you use?

I use Adobe Photoshop. Everything you see is real. There are no food photography tricks, like using Elmer’s glue to mimic milk or spraying food with certain chemicals to make them look shiny. I’m not a professional, so I don’t feel the need to compensate for the lack of experience.

I often post photos to Food Gawker or Tastespotting if I think I have a chance at getting featured. I hope you enjoy viewing my creations as much as I love making them!

Have your recipes ever been featured?

Sometimes my recipes get online and print coverage. You can check out my Media page for that info, although I admit, it’s not frequently updated.
