FAQ

What kind of camera do you use?

I have a Canon EOS Rebel T2i.  I have absolutely no idea how to use it.  I do not claim to be a photographer and know very little about how to use my camera but I am absolutely in love with it.  I take it with me everywhere.  I use my 50mm lens the most.  One book that I found very easy to follow and very informative is Bryan Peterson's Understanding Photography Field Guide.



Who taught you how to cook? Where do your recipes come from?

Both of my grandmothers were big influences and amazing cooks!  I have a lot of recipes from them that are family favorites.  I still call my grandma (and mom) and ask them how they make things- tuna fish, egg salad, and deviled eggs seem to be the most common.  I can never remember if I'm supposed to use mayonnaise or miracle whip!  I also get a lot of ideas from recipes I see in magazines and cookbooks.  Once I start making them, I switch it up a bit to make it "my own".  They don't always turn out.  I don't blog about those! I seem to be much better at making savory dishes than sweet. 

The best way to "learn how to cook", if you don't have someone to learn from directly, is to follow a recipe word for word.  That's why they're written!  Find an easy beginner's cookbook and just try! Don't eye ball measurements, set a timer every time, and take your time.

What color is your living room?
 I've been asked this question a lot.  I've sold a bunch of old furniture on Craig's List and had someone email me after seeing a picture and ask what color it is.  I can't take credit for the color- my entire house, inside and out, was painted this color when I moved in.  It's a great greyish-blue color.  I found a spare can of paint that has the custom color label on it so hopefully this will help:

    1. My entire house was painted that color when I moved in so I can't take credit for it. I don't have the exact name but I did find a spare can of paint with the custom color match code on it. This can is exterior paint but the outside of my house is the same color as the inside. I'll add a picture to the post above so you can have the code. I don't know how to add the picture to a comment. :)
