I actually hadn’t heard of (or more likely noticed) a third of these new to 2015 slang terms but this post is an amusing one (in a buzzfeed click-bait-mind-numbing-escape kind of way.)

And if you’re lacking things to do, you could become an expert on creating said mind-numbing content yourself. Here’s a post all about how to do that!

I loved reading this post about enjoying the holiday celebrations, skipping the slippery slope of deprivation and not feeling guilty about eating delicious food. Plus the recipe looks phenomenal!

More on staying healthy but still enjoying the holiday season from Lauren Gibson RD.

When I was traveling to promote my cookbook, I ended up sitting next to this dude at my friend’s restaurant. When I asked him what he did for work he said he was a Content Developer. Well, blow me down! Since that’s what I consider myself, (but when I tell use that expression nobody seems to know what that means, so I don’t actually say it) I was super psyched to talk to him. And even more so to learn from him about DSLR photography. Turns out he has his own huge following and youtube channel as well. There’s loads to see on his site too. And check him out on instagram.

I also thought it would be funny to show you this pic my 9 year old took of me with (my own phone dang it) of me shooting these Moroccan Lamb Shanks. Very glam isn’t it? I am sure Fro Knows Photo would not approve. Oh well.

Taking a photograph of Moroccan Lamb ShanksIf you’re wondering what I am doing, I did a post about backlighting a while ago so if you are curious about it there is much more in that post (including a video.)
