I get many emails asking various questions about my blog. So I am going to do my best to answer them.
Why did you start a food blog?
It is a bit of a long story, but I will give you the cliff notes version (are Cliff notes even sold anymore?). My husband was gone at night remodeling his Mothers house while she was away on missionary work. So after the kids went to bed, it got pretty boring. I loved food and loved photography, so I thought I would take pictures of my food and put it on the internet. I am hoping you weren’t expecting something more exciting than than that.
How did you come up with the name “The Hungry Housewife”?
This was quite easy. My kids were at the table playing the board game “Hungry Hungry Hippo”. And it instantly hit me! The Hungry Hungry Housewife! I decided to shorten it to just use one “Hungry”. And “The Hungry Housewife” was born.
Who takes your photos?
That would be little ole’ me.
What type of camera do you use?
At the beginning of my blog I used a standard point and click camera. Point and clicks are all fine and dandy, but they just don’t fit the bill when it comes to taking pretty food photos. I am by NOOOOOOO means a great photographer, in fact my photos are sub par if you take a peek at other food blogs. But the crispness of my pictures comes from my DSLR..Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT with a 50mm 1.4 lens.
My kitchen is SUPER dark so I often rely on the light of an Lowel Ego Light. Your camera flash will KILL your food photography.
Why do you do videos on your blog?
I do videos when I want to talk about something that I am really excited about or when something is too important to “type”. Translation gets lost on the pages
of a computer and I like for people to be able to feel and see my excitement.
Where do you find your recipes?
Unless otherwise noted, they are found in my crazy and confused mind.
Can you review my book or product?
Shoot me an email and if I feel that your product is relevant to my blog, I will certainly consider doing a review.
You have so may typos, why?
That would be because I went to school for nursing, not grammar.
