Food Blog Dog & A Cookbook Title?


Lately, here has been lots of food photography and therefore lots of bulldog interruptions.

Sometimes she sits in the background and pouts…not only because she wants people food, but she wants to be the center of attention at all times.

Other times she’ll sit down and take in the smells.


Most often, she gets in the way and “hovers”. She excels at getting in the image AND blocking my light source.


…Or gets up close and too personal with the food and she gets a “ahem” from me and knows to back away and wait to see if I share.

(I usually do.)


The best is when something smells or looks so good that she can’t even bear to look and has to turn away…


Food blogging/cookbooking with a bulldog…never a dull moment!

As for the cookbook, I think I’ve arrived at a title (with lots of suggestions from others!). While it is subject to change, the tentative title is Prevention RD: A Balanced Approach to Everyday Recipes. I’m really happy with the title and think it represents my food philosophy and approach. 🙂 What do you think?

Back tomorrow with a recipe!

Be well,

Share With Your Friends!

    I love the title! I think it’s good to keep it similar to the blog so you’ll have the name recognition. I’m sure it also reflects the balanced, awesome-yummy recipes people will find inside ๐Ÿ™‚

    That’s a great title! And a very well-behaved dog – I’m surprised she doesn’t sneak some food ๐Ÿ™‚

    Your food photos always look great, but lets be honest, Lily is clearly the star of the show.

    Love the title of the book and the pictures of Lily are too cute. If you can stand another “you should,” these photos would make for a great calendar, too.

    I love that first picture of Lily the best – too cute! LOVE the title – it definitely fits your food philosophy!!

  14. August 28, 2012 / 11:56 am

    I really love the title. It is simple and to the point.
    Lily is so stinking cute!! I love that she wants to be so involved in your food photography. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I think the title is perfect.

  21. August 28, 2012 / 11:37 pm

    I love the title.

    And Lily is just too cute, I love her face so much. Lexie looks away when she wants something really badly too. It’s her way of pretending like she’s not begging. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I absolutely love your blot, but it’s an extra special treat when Lily is involved. I had a boxer and now a Boston Terrier, so I love the “unconventional” cuties. I so want to smoosh her face!

  23. August 29, 2012 / 11:13 am

    Awww, Lily is such a sweetie! LOVE your title and I can’t wait for your book!!!

  24. August 31, 2012 / 2:55 pm

    I love the title! I can’t wait to check out your cookbook ๐Ÿ™‚

    And Lily … *sigh* A cutie, as always.
