Hi, my name is Lindsay.

I go to food photography classes.

Bowls of food on a wooden surface.

I meet friendly pugs at food photography classes (eeeee!!!).

I try to use my new photography skills.  #oops

Muffins with butter and honey drizzle.

Annnd… I avoid taking pictures of spicy sausage posole by posting photos of other more interesting things?

Don’t be fooled by my bad attitude about soup pictures.

This is actually my favorite fast weeknight soup.  It’s spicy and yummy and it only takes about 20 minutes to make.  Did I mention I love sausage?  And cilantro?  Cause this soup is loaded with both.  BTW, did I mention my closet love of Doritos?  I never let an opportunity for Doritos pass me by, and this soup is screaming opportunity.
