To continue on with the beet recipes, here is a super easy, light, and tasty salad I made a couple weeks ago, since blood oranges were in season! If you haven’t tried a blood orange, you need to!

Some of those who know me have been known to call me cheap…well I like to think i’m thrifty. Now is that such a bad thing? Certainly not when it comes to making your own photography accessories! Especially considering the price of some of the items out there. So in my “thriftyness” I was looking for a good solution for indoor photography lighting for my food and came across these Lowel EGO Lights which look great. Now I wasn’t so concerned with the price, as it was fairly reasonable for good photography lighting, my main concern was the fact that I live in Canada and I didn’t want to wait long to get these shipped. So off I went searching for Do-It-Yourself EGO lights and found several results and realize I could make these right away, not to mention they would be way cheaper as well! (Always a bonus for me).
So here goes the Do- It-Yourself Guide (and for those who just prefer the ease of buying something, you can pick up a nice pair at amazon.com below!)

For the Canada Day Weekend, my grandparents were nice enough to let me take a few friends to their cabin. So friends, if you’re reading this, be sure to comment below and say thanks – my grandma subscribes to the blog and will see your comments!!

During the weekend we ate like kings – from homemade four bean hummus with an assortment of veggies, homemade salsa with chicken to guacamole, sweet potato fries, over roasted hashbrowns, bbq’d eggs, skor bit fruit dip to coconut-panko shrimp!
