Quarantine Recipe Reveal

Here is the inside scoop on some different photography I take from time to time. Aside from traveling, cooking is the new adventure I'm trying while we're all cooped up in quarantine. There's a few things I love cooking repeatedly, and I just so happen to enjoy photographing them while I'm at it. Sharing is caring right? So here you go...

The Tasty Time Killers: these are not only some of my favorite recipes, but some of the best "activity" recipes to enjoy with a full bottle of wine, quality time with your co-chef, something different to do while dancing alone in the kitchen, change up from Netflix or to fill in a long day without any other plans... Enjoy!
