Picture Perfect!


As food bloggers, we know the value of food that looks good. We think about how the dish will photograph prior to cooking because we know there are certain dishes that delight the eyes and dazzle on the plate!

 Picture Perfect dishes strike us for a variety of reasons. A plate full of colorful veggies beautifully arranged, the sight of melting butter pooling off a slice of homemade bread, fruit dripping with juice, a fresh bowl of pasta oozing with melting cheese, or dainty chocolate shavings atop a fluffy chocolate mousse. It's these Picture Perfect dishes that call to us just begging to be made.  

Please post your Picture Perfect Heidi Swanson dish by Sunday, March 5th. Please remember to link a thumbnail image and leave a comment after so that we don't miss out on your dish.
