Can you believe May is finally here!? I am so excited because I've been anxiously awaiting our trip down to Sanibel where I'm going to do a couple restaurant shoots and spend the rest of the time relaxing on the beach with Mike, my Mom and my camera.
I went into April thinking it would be a blog-focused month. I didn't have a ton of outside work lined up and I wanted to slow down and focus on Up Close & Tasty. But, before I knew it, work was coming in left and right. I was meeting with new clients and more outside shoots were scheduled. So, although this month wasn't as blog-focused like I planned, some exciting things have been going on.
Here's what I've been up to this month:
Forager Brewery, Rochester, MN
...because my sweet little hometown now has breweries!
Zucchini Noodles with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce and Goat Cheese
...because sometimes eliminating carbs can be really delicious.
ZZest, Rochester, MN
...because their menu is unique and inventive and they're also located in my sweet little hometown.
...because this recipe gives water the extra love it deserves.
I also want to share that I recently partnered up with Edible Chicago, Standard Market and 3rd Coast PR to shoot Standard Market's newest cheese cave and the process of what goes into making and aging award-winning cheeses. It was a blast to be a part of this. The feature is being published in the Spring issue of Edible Chicago and comes out this week! I'll be sharing more on this very soon. This project was especially exciting for me since I've been wanting to work with Edible Chicago and Standard Market for a long time... and well, I love cheese. You can subscribe to receive seasonal issues of Edible Chicago here.
Be sure to follow me on Instagram to get some sneak peeks into our Sanibel trip this month. I am testing out the Olympus Pen F for our trip and who knows, it may just become my new travel camera. I'll definitely let you know how it goes.
Thank you for sticking around to support Up Close & Tasty! See you next month!
