have you ever looked into trying to photograph food for a magazine? you are really good at it.

Mrs. H. said...

Kristi - thank you! Coming from a photographer like you I really appreciate that. :-)

Mr. H. has mentioned that he thinks I should be a food stylist. I really like my food to look appealing as well as taste good. I think you eat with your eyes as well as your mouth! ;-)

I really need to learn about my camera, though. Maybe I'll find sometime this summer?! All my pics are straight out of the camera point and shoot. I totally frustrate Mr. H. He has been wanting to teach me about apature and F stops and he would love for me to use the tri pod and manual focus! But, I'm just a busy Mommy that uses natural light, auto focus, and strange body contortions to get the shot I want and then I'm movin' on to what else I need to do! ;-) haha

I have really enjoyed your picture taking!

How many pounds of green beans (estimate)?

Mrs. H. said...

I usually don't weigh the green beans so I'm not sure how many pounds of beans I use. I tend to just count them as I place them in the bag. Typically 10 beans per serving, so for this recipe I would guess about 60 beans. Hope this helps!

I have been making green beans similar to this for years. My husband says this is the only way to each green beans...lol I have never used brown sugar and have no idea how much of everything I use because I don't measure. It is nice to have an actual recipe so maybe I can get them to come out the same every time. Thank you very much.
