A "Yummy" Addition to Our Family


No, it's not a new recipe ingredient, not a new puppy sibling for Hadley (don't tempt me!) and no, we didn't have a baby.  Although, in a sense, we did.  A while back Brian and I purchased a web site called Yum Goggle which featured beautiful food photography and links back to the recipes.  It was small and rather poorly designed but we saw an opportunity.

For the past few weeks, I've been working with a designer to update the look of the site and fix its many bugs.  Some of the changes were easy, some were like giving birth but all were a labor of love.  And today I'm so thrilled to say it's done...for now.  I mean, really, are these things every fully done?  But I wanted to "unveil" it officially.  To those of you (most of you) who are not food bloggers, Yum Goggle is a great place to go for cooking inspiration.  You'll find the work of some of the best food bloggers and recipe developers to browse through.  You'll get ideas and directions and a feast for the eyes.  I do hope you'll visit often.

But I'd also like to speak to some of my fellow food bloggers for a minute and explain the philosophy behind Yum Goggle.  We're all familiar with curated sites that arbitrarily reject photos for "composition" and other varying and, ever changing, reasons.  And we've seen the handful of sites that take all comers, no matter how awful, and produce no results.  We want to be different.  We want to be the most blogger friendly resource for you.  No, we don't accept all photos but our criteria is not based on cropping, lighting and composition.  Does the food in the photo look like something we'd want to eat?  If so, we want to show it to the world and let them see your work and your recipe.  Who better than another food blogger can understand all that went into creating what's in that photo?

And, while we're at it, who better than another food blogger understands the need to show off your work on social media?  And so, we do.  You'll find us pinning, tweeting, and posting your work to Facebook and G+.  And so I'm asking you to join Yum Goggle, submit your photos, follow us around on social media, visit, pin, share and spread the foodie love.  And, if you need me, get in touch.  I'll be here...cooking.

  15. On a bigger scale however it is possible to add on the house, not just a room but several rooms, sometimes in the form of a whole new story to the house. Adding a second story to a one story house is a great way to give a small home added size and by building up a family can easily add bedrooms and a bathroom without taking away the needed space below. construction companies san francisco
