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.

I thank you for reading my blog, and hope that you will enjoy and share it with others!




  1. Ahh, I miss you, and I just really miss hearing you talk, so this is going to be a great way for me to follow you. As you know I'm not a Vegan but have a very curious nature, and am very comfortable with your patient and understanding way, I'm excited to learn! Thank you and write quickly I'm already wanting more! Love ya!

  2. Thank you so much Erica! I miss you as well. I will post as often as I can- right now I'm planning on a post per week, but hoping for more. I appreciate your being comfortable with my ways, that means very much to me.
