Through The Lens Thursday: Together

Or, as they toddler says “too-gedduh”.

I made some gluten free popcorn party mix for the girls’ Easter parties at school tomorrow. (It’s super easy, but if you want the recipe, check it out on Today’s Work At Home Mom…and feel free to take a look around while you’re there).

Food photography is tough, which is why I was excited to practice for this week’s prompt. I need a set-up with “walls” and a surface to put the food on, though. For now, I clear off (part of) my kitchen counter.

Now, excuse me while I try not to eat all of the treats.

(OH! And um…in case you didn’t put it TOGETHER, I mixed all of this stuff TOGETHER into a super yummy and addictive party treat. So, there ya go.)

    Hah! I like the cleverness of the togetherness. And this looks yummy!

  2. This looks like a great treat for the kiddos and I know a few adults that would go crazy for this mix too! I am right there with you with food photography, it is very challenging, especially if you don't have good lighting or back drops or any other fancy pants things that the professionals do but the most important thing is to keep at it! You go girl!

    These photos are great, you know why? 'Cause it makes me want to eat ALL of that! 😉 K got some of this from a friend at her school party in a cute little package that said "bunny bait". 🙂 I am resisting eating it as I type…

    I officially registered a request to have my Easter basket delivered to your place next year, in hopes of scoring that mix. I'd have traded two chocolate bunnies and a dozen peeps for that setup. I think it would be acceptable to replicate that for, say, Cinco de Mayo. I just don't to wait until next Easter!
