Confession #103 – We talked in my challenge group this week about comparison. As in, comparison is the thief of joy.
So darn true, isn’t it?
And yet, I fall victim to comparing myself to others all the time…no matter how much I know I shouldn’t.
Want to know a secret? I sometimes feel like an impostor in the world of food blogging. Especially when it comes to my photos.
I’m just a girl who likes to cook. And eat.
I actually have a fancy camera…and I totally have an interest in photography.
I just lack that one oh-so-important thing…
But I somehow always have time to cook.
So I will continue to share my meals with you all, as long as you tolerate my trusty iPhone pics…if you stick with me long enough, you just might see the day where I dust off my old DSLR camera and set up a real shot.
For now, the best I have for you is this lemony Goat Cheese butter. Which, not to brag, is pretty freaking amazing.
In an instant, your plain pan seared pork chops become restaurant (and drool) worthy when you top them with this creamy and delicious combination of fresh lemon zest, clarified butter, and goat cheese. Let it melt a bit while you are setting the table with your fancy plates…because even though this dinner ready in minutes, it feels like a special occasion.
So while these pictures are high up on my list to someday retake, I am sharing this recipe with you anyway. Because instead of being jealous that my photog skill aren’t better, I am going to be grateful…right here and right now…that you are here reading my words, trusting me with your dinner, and drooling over some imperfectly styled goat cheese.
