Thanks for stopping by the blog! I'm Whitney and my husband, Romain, and I are a wedding photography team based out of Raleigh, North Carolina. We are excited to share our recent work and a little peek into our lives!
I decided to make this blog post more for myself, so I could look back and remember the only shining light in the quarantine world of 2020: food. These are all iPhone photos, but you know, that’s just real life! I’ve noticed that we love: our cast iron, salmon, crispy chicken thighs and feta.
Spring Veggie Pasta
Steak! Cooked in a cast iron, which is the best way to cook steak
Our “fancy” date night in! Warm brussel sprout salad with pancetta and meatballs in gravy with grits!
This Pinterest fail, lol!
Salmon & Risotto

When we discovered the BEST cookie recipe ever by Top Chef winner Kelsey! AND she liked it on IG and told me they looked perfect!

This delicious cocktail (this was around the time of the Zoom happy hour phase)
These stuffed zucchini boats – I really love pine nuts!
When we discovered how to make these really delicious oven fries that are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. (the trick is to boil them for a few minutes first)

Romain’s birthday feast! I made spread of tinned fish and goodies and we order oysters again (who’s surprised)
Pancakes (is there anything more comforting in the morning?)
Krispy Kreme Donut Bread Pudding, yes you heard that right. We had glazed donuts that were going to go stale so naturally, I made them even more healthy by making them into bread pudding.
All this produce…do we really eat this much food?

Fried Green Tomatoes
Crispy Chicken Thighs with Tomato Rice
I made all these melon balls and yes it took forever

At least we’ve had some good eats!!
