Do you like the cake stand? My youngest son bought it at a garage sale when he was five. At the time I thought it was so cute that a 5 year old wanted a cake stand of his very own. Alas, in the interceding years the novelty of asking him if I can borrow his cake stand has definitely worn off.
This concludes the Photographing Food section of my post as I don't suffer from Pioneer Woman Syndrome (the desire to include 59 hi-res photographs detailing every minuscule step of a recipe lest your readers are too thick to read and comprehend the recipe without visual aides) hence my recipe blog is very dull, and graphics-free. Am I the only person who doesn't care for this trend? I see it popping up everywhere. What's the appropriate number of photo illustrations for a recipe? I'm going to say 4. Three if it involves opening a tin of Campbell's soup.

What a swell guy.
