Coming Out From Behind the Camera: My Review is in the June Issue of All You Magazine

Slow Cooker Pork Loin with Cherries



Ever since I started this blog there has been one question that I get asked the most. It's not about food. I get emails, tweets, facebook posts about why I don't include a photo of myself on my blog. With my kids it's a matter of privacy, I am very protective of their online identity. With myself it's more of wanting a focus on the recipes and food. However, the longer that I have been blogging the more I realize that eventually I will have to come out from behind the camera. So with that in mind, you can find a picture of me in the current June issue of All You magazine.

As you all know I review magazine, cookbook and online recipes. All You has started a section high-lighting readers that have tried their recipes and a few question and answers about the results. I was flattered to be approached to be the first person for this section. If you look on page 9 you will see my review of All You's Slow-Cooker Pork Loin with Cherries (you can read my original review here). It really is a great recipe and one that I loved making. The section also includes a photo of me and a photo I took of the dish. No more hiding behind the camera.

My husband's only comment about the mention was that everyone is going to think that I'm 42 since my age states that I am 35. I promise I really am 35, but I guess I should start telling everyone that I'm 27. Only problem is that I don't think anyone would believe me!

  1. How wonderful! You have a lot to be proud of, your blog is terrific. I'm going to be 35 this year myself, actually; I think I'm in good company. :)

  4. Congrats to you!

    It has been only in the last few months that I took the leap and posted a photo of myself. I noticed that blog readers said that they felt more connected with a photo...

    Cheers.

    1. It's funny how photos can make people feel more connected, but they do seem to make a difference.

  6. That's fantastic - congrats!

    I don't use my kids names online, but I do post pictures -now. I didn't for the first couple of years, but I was running out of things to blog about, so I decided to show their cute faces.

    1. I have always been told I'm paranoid :) I think anyway you decide to do it is fine, as long as it works for your family. Your kids are adorable too!

  7. How exciting! Congrats on getting into the magazine. Too funny about your husband. I guess those of us that actually tell the truth about our age are just doomed. ;-)

    1. I made a bunch of slow cooker recipes when I was pregnant with my two boys and then froze them. Having meals prepared ahead of time is so nice!
