5 {Foodie} Instagrammers That I Love

photocredit

After years of putting it off, I've finally become a member of the instagram community. I must say, you people are beautiful photographers. It's amazing what a quick capture and a few great filters can do nowadays. I'm a really visual person and seeing lovely arrangements, crisp landscapes, and different color palette-mixing is quite an inspiration. I'm especially in love with all the foodie photos on instagram.

I rarely have a cookbook in my cupboard that does not boast a picture-a-page, and it's for good reason. If I see it and it looks healthy and delicious, I want to make it, simple as that. Instagram is a great place for me to follow some amazing cooks, and although I follow most of these cooks and bakers on their blogs, I thought I'd share a quick list of my favorite {foodie} instagrammers, so you might take a peek, too, and find a new idea for dinner.

*Aimee Bourque from SimpleBites.net has by far the best spreads. Her photo usually captures the entire meal, in a lovely arrangement. She cooks, grills, bakes, and eats out, and I like all those options, too. Her blog is one of my favorites. This picture (up top) was so fetching to me I made the meal that week and it was fantastic. It fed us for two days, and we felt great.

*Joy the Baker has her own website, a number of cookbooks, and even hosts a podcasting channel. What I love about her instagram photos is that they are mostly all muted in tone, and hushed in color. They appear to be living in this perpetual Sunday-morning foggy realm of cozy, cats, and sweets.

*Robinette Farms are located near my hometown of Lincoln, NE. I enjoyed their delicious organic produce every summer from the farmer's markets my town had to offer. I could kick myself I didn't sign up for their CSA before choosing a different one (long story). Their photos are deliciously colorful and deep in the dirt. I was able to hear Chole, one of the owners, speak at an event once and have had much respect for the work they do since then. #EatLocal

*CannelleVanille is my all-time favorite food stylist. It's actually a job. Not only that, but she travels the world while hosting food styling, preparing, and photographing workshops. Swoon! She has recently relocated to my neck of the woods and I'd probably act like a 50s girl meeting a Beatle if I ever got the chance. Her photos are quiet, with usually one pop of color. Her food is simple, yet unique and elegant, and the best part? She's completely gluten-free.

*TastyYummies is a new face to me, having never read her blog before I saw her on instagram. Her photos cover texture and fullness, with the food nearly bursting through the square boundaries of each photo. There are lots of garden produce hauls, stuffed-large meal spreads, and super color 'one-pots'.

Who do you follow on instagram that gets your stomach growling? Leave their handle in the comments for me!

How To: DIY Sand/Water Table

How To: Build A Sand/Water Table for Under $30 ! Sorry this took me so long to blog, but I had to have a tool list and full instructions before I could do so. A little history on my love for the sand/water table . I love the idea behind tools for tiny hands, i.e. the Montessori Method , and like to have Lukka 'figure things out for himself', even when he is playing. I try to have the most simple and basic toys available for 3 reasons: a) simple toys generally have less parts, which means less of a hassle for me b) simple toys inspire way more creativity and imagination than do 'exact replica' toys c) they are much more aesthetically pleasing to look at, therefore, not making every nook and cranny of our house an eyesore! I know the last reason is just for me, but it's true. Plastic things don't generally last 1/2 as long as wooden or fabric toys, and they are unattractive. For this reason, I started to look for a wooden sand/water table as opposed to a pl

Anikka's Birthday Interview // 12

Ani has grown at least four inches this year and is nearly my height at 12. She has grown in her artistic ability and loves to change her room up, organize, and play with anything art or craft related for hours on end. Often her creativity amazes me for someone her age. She is a better skier than I'll ever be, and has that 'can-do' Mast attitude ("I just think I can do it, so I do it") that is worth its weight in gold.  She is determined when she has a goal and has gone from zero ability to kart wheel to not only kart wheeling, but doing back-bends, leg lifts (straight up and down with her legs!), the splits,  contortionist positions (see below), and incredible dance ability  all because she steadily worked at those goals.  We are so proud of you, Anikka, and we love you! self portrait    What is your favorite color? green  Who are some of your friends?  Lilah, Audrey, Anya, Marie, Kate, Ophelia, Charlotte, Charlee, Summer, Emily, Isla, Kathryn, Anna, CJ What do y
