The Girl Behind The Camera

This week we are going wildly off subject. I am going to share some of my deep, dark secrets and what changed my perception of myself! I am sure you have noticed by now, that there aren't many pictures of me on my blog! For years, during my whole life I have hid from the camera. I have never really liked how I look in pictures. I look too pale, my eyes are too small for my face, fat, out of proportion to others, my head is too big when my hair is up, my hair is messy when its down, I don't have make-up on, etc... The reasons and excuses have been used up... and I am sick of hiding!

Lately I have found myself hiding behind the know if you are taking the pictures, you can't be in them too! It has worked really well for me, but for years now, there is nearly no record of me in family photos. But, sometime last year I decided to stop hiding and start sharing!

French Potato Salad

Welcome to the middle of the summer. My school doesn't start until the 3rd week of August and my annual vacation to Nantucket is coming up soon! One of my favorite things about summer is all of the BBQs and special summer food. Potato salad is a summer food must and this is one of my 3 favorite recipes and this recipe is one that can easily be made and enjoyed all year long. I have made/eaten this potato salad several times in the last few years, but I have only ever had it with the mayonnaise mixed into it.

Red White and Blueberry Topped Vanilla Cupcakes

Good Morning! 
     As you all probably know, the 4th of July is a pretty bad day for me. I try not to dwell on all that happened on July 4th 1995, but 18 years later,  it is still the worst day of the year. I don't like fireworks, waving flags that seem to pop up all over town, or anything to do with July 4th. It was just bad luck on my part, that the doctors discovered my pituitary tumor on a national holiday...oops.  So as you know, I don't post July 4th recipes, but this year I decided to break one of my rules, so here you have a lovely red, white and blueberry July 3rd recipe. Happy July 3rd to you all!!
