Welcome to Kendall's Creations!
Welcome, and thank you for visiting my blog! I thought that I would start this adventure out with a little "mission statement," though not so formal. My vision for this blog is that it will be a place that I share recipes predominantly and as a photographer there will be images of the process and final product of those recipes! I'm sure that there will be times that I use this as a forum to discuss other things happening in my world, maybe share a favorite photograph or two from my professional and personal life, and who knows what else!
A few notes about how I cook and what you can expect on the blog:
I'm not big on measurements. I tend to throw in a little-of-this and a little-of-that when I cook, it's how I learned to cook from my mother and even if I start with a recipe I usually change it to make my own. I will do my best to list amounts, but please keep in mind that they're estimated and I encourage you to adapt the recipes for personal tastes!
I will only post vegan recipes. I've been vegan since around January of 2006, and am pretty darn passionate about animal rights as well as the health benefits of a vegan diet. I highly, HIGHLY, recommend reading Vegan: The New Ethics of Eating which is a quick and easy read and touches on both ethical and health reasons for living a vegan lifestyle if you're curious.
I would LOVE for you to send me your recipes! As I said, I tend to start with a recipe and then make it my own- this includes converting and experimenting with non-vegan recipes and reworking them into something healthy and enjoyably guilt-free.
I am not, by any stretch of the imagination, a fancy chef. I do not have a fully equipped foodie kitchen. I, actually, do not even have a full-size fridge. I live in a little apartment, with a very moderately sized kitchen and I like it that way! This means that I won't ask you to pull out some crazy contraption that you can only find for $50+ at the fancy kitchen store in the mall. I have a lovely set of knives that my husband and I received for a wedding gift, some pots and pans that have been with me for a few years now and a trusty can-opener.
I am a photographer! First and foremost, photography is what drives me. I love looking at photos, learning about the technical side, dreaming up concept projects and working as a professional photographer. I enjoy product photography a great deal, and wanting to gain more experience with that is one of the inspirations for this blog. I also believe that practicing my craft as often as possible in a variety of ways will help me define my style, and make me a better photographer.
