Who takes all the photographs on Small Kitchen Chronicles?
Unless otherwise noted, that would be me.
What kind of camera do you use?
When I first began working on Small Kitchen Chronicles – months before I published a single post – I spent many a week practicing and doing lighting / photo tests with my brother’s PowerShot. The very first photographs seen here on SKC were taken with that borrowed little camera (thanks, Niko!).
I have since moved up to my digital SLR – the Canon T2i – which is what I now use exclusively. It simultaneously scares me, amazes me and next to my husband, I’m in absolute love with it.
What kind of light do you use?
I use natural light because it’s the best. And, next to my husband and the T2i, I am in absolute love with it.
May I use one of your photos / articles on my site or in my magazine?
Though I am flattered and honored that you’d like to use / share my stuff, please note that the entire contents of Small Kitchen Chronicles are protected under international copyright laws.
So, please be sure to drop me a line – to ask for permission to use any of my posts, content and pictures – first. Simply put, it’s just the right thing to do.
Is there a list or index of recipes? I can’t seem to find it…
Yes, abso-posi-lutely! To get to it, click on “Recipe Index” in the menu bar above.
What’s your favorite thing to make?
Oh, hands-down, my Best-Ever Pecan Waffles with Bacon for those I love.
Salt, of course, and cardamom. Okay, I know, that’s two, but I can’t help it. There’s a reason why they use the word “spice” along with the word “life”.
Where do you live and where exactly is SKC at?
Small Kitchen Chronicles got its start in a small, one-bedroom apartment with an even smaller kitchen — hence the “small kitchen” in “chronicles” — just a hop, skip and a ferry jump from Seattle.
Other than Small Kitchen Chronicles, is there anything else that you do?
Yes! Other than endlessly obsessing over my next culinary musing, I am a freelance writer, recipe developer, food stylist and photographer, as well as a conservatory-trained professional actress (now retired).
I am an artist / singer-songwriter who released her first single as a solo artist in September 2017. It is available for purchase / download on BandCamp.Com. So please go take a listen and if you like it, buy, share! This little song can’t travel without you.
I am also the writer / photographer of Everyday Ordinary Awesome, a photography blog of my stories told in pictures, about seeing the awesome in the everyday and ordinary.
I’ve also had the pleasure to guest-post on A Southern Fairytale, a wonderful food and lifestyle blog by the lovely Rachel Matthews.
If you’d like to work with me, please contact me at smallkitchenchronicles (at) gmail (dot) com.
I have a blog / website. Will you link to it, or want to exchange links?
Though I’d love to support everyone, as a general rule, my policy is that I do not accept exchange link requests. That said, please drop me a line and let me know about your blog. I’d really, really love to hear about it!
Can I link to your blog?
That would be wonderful! Thanks so much for wanting to; the love is much appreciated!
