Do you ever have one of those days where you just stand in front of the fridge staring inside? And you think that there is nothing in there. Yesterday, was one of thoseeee days for me. I realized that I must have been standing there for a while and so I shut the door turned around and went to my pantry. I did the same exact thing, then rolled my eyes, and gave up. Sometimes my brain just stops working, it could be because I am tired or not in the mood. Yes, I also have those days where I just don’t want to do anything…but just sit on the couch and feel sorry for myself. We all need to vent sometimes. After work, I headed back to the fridge with a clear mindset and found a few ingredients. (And this is what I came up with Spicy Feta Cheese) 🙂
I love Appetizers and the reason is that most of the recipes are quick, with variations in taste, and sooo yummy. Especially when Feta Cheese is the main ingredient. Don’t you just love dipping into dips, or spreads with freshly toasted bread, sprinkled with a bit of oregano, olive oil? Sound good? Yes? No? Well, if yes try out this delicious and sooooo easy to prepare. Believe me, you will love it!! that is if you love Feta. 🙂 If No, well that’s fine too. 🙂
I had mentioned in the past that I was looking into finding a food blogger/photographer to help me with food styling. A few months ago, while I was responding and liking some comments and photos from other bloggers on IG. I came across a Food Blogger by the name of Anthea. Anthea had posted that she attended a Food Bloggers Workshop in Athens, Greece. I of course had to comment with a “FINALLYYYY” a workshop for Food Bloggers IN GREECE!! I started following Anthea on IG. She responded I think with a smiley face?? I don’t really remember.
We started to comment on each other photos, etc. While looking at her blog I came across The Salty Biscotti Studio!!! I liked what I saw and right then and there is when I decided that I would like to follow Anthea’s Seminar. We had our seminar at the beginning of this week. Anthea is a chilled out person with a great sense of humor, who does an amazing job explaining the tips, tricks, and the mathematical facts about food styling in detail. (ufff math) Seriously detail!!
Anthea stopped every so often to ask me if I had any questions. I think this was the first seminar that I attended that I did not need to write down any questions or not sure if I heard correctly. I have attended more than enough seminars to see the differences and this one was the best by far!! So, if you think you need help with food styling or food photography then I definitely recommend Anthea to anyone out there.
I integrated all the information I learned on Tuesday into my featured photo for this post. The featured photo for this recipe is what I posted on IG. Guess what guys I got a thumbs up from Antheaaa.!! Anthea’s blog is https://thesaltybiscottiblog.com/ it is definitely worth popping over and checking it out.
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!!
