52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog

52. What’s Cooking?


Tonight it was apple crisp! My husband hates apples so since he is away I made the house smell like warm apples and cinnamon! The recipe I followed belongs to my Aunt Lois who is an amazing cook. I love to use recipes given to me by people I love. It gives me an opportunity to remember that person as I am cooking a dish that reminds me of them. My second favorite apple crisp was the one the lunch ladies made when I was in elementary school. Isn’t it amazing how a certain food can bring back a flood of memories? Aunt Rosie’s Taco Salad, Aunt Alice’s left over pork roast stew, Grandma Vinson’s frozen chocolate chip cookies and german chocolate cake, Grandpa Vinson’s chicken and dumplin’s…. Yummy!

Hi, my name is Mindy Towns, I live in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Along with several friends I have been participating in a weekly, theme based, photo blog since August 2012. Each year we receive a new list of 52 themes. We then post a photo each week that fits one of the themes along with a brief description about why we feel the photo fits the theme. Over the years I have learned a lot about my camera, new photography technics and also a lot about my fellow bloggers. I've peeked into their homes, met their families and traveled to exotic places through their photos. This year I am challenging myself further by trying to become even more creative in my posts. I found the cutest little Playmobil person complete with a camera and a little dog. She is going to be my little personal assistant over the coming months. I'm going to use many of the photo skills I have learned from participating in the photo challenge along with some new photoshop tools I have been practicing. I hope you will continue to follow my blog as I change things up a bit this year. Perhaps some of you will raid someones toy chest or toss something cute into your Target shopping cart and get a little silly with me. If you want to see examples of my grown up photography please visit one of my links listed on this blogs home page!

  1. I just came back from a commute to Tampa Airport – but traffic there and back was great for me. Not so great for those going to the airport an hour later though. So I haven’t had breakfast and I wish that apple/cinnamon smell was in my house! Perhaps just some toast with cinnamon & sugar on top will satisfy me.

  2. OK we are on our way over – wouldn’t want to have any left in the house when the hubby gets back – all that nasty apple and cinnamon smells will need to be gone.
