Just a quick little pause in our Fall inspired loveliness today to remind you to submit your yummy Fall recipes. And what better day to hang around in your PJ’s, break out your recipe goodness, and create something entirely delicious. Submission guidelines are all below. And we simply can’t wait to see what you come up with…then make it for ourselves!!
CONTEST: Best Fall Inspired Recipe… from signature cocktails to tasty sweets (and everything in between), this is about you and what makes you the happiest now that the leaves are turning and the air is crisp.
SUBMISSIONS: All submissions should be received by Sunday, October 14th at midnight EST. We are only accepting entries through our submissions tool which you can find right here. Emailed submissions won’t be accepted for now. Please title all posts RECIPE CONTEST. Our submissions server requires 15 submissions. Feel free to include step-by-step shots or if you don’t have enough, not to worry, we’ll still get it as long as it’s titled RECIPE CONTEST.
PHOTOGRAPHY: We wanted to mention photography for a moment. The best submissions are those that are photographed in a clean, simple way that allows the food/drink to take center stage. While the photography that we normally feature on the site is done by pro’s, there are a few simple ways to make any photo sparkle using an iphone or a simple point and shoot camera. Here are a handful of posts that give some great tips:
Food Photography Basics via The Way the Cookie Crumbles
Food Photography with an iPhone via Oh My Veggies
Taking Photos of Food here and here via Pioneer Woman
Food Photography Tips w/o a Fancy Camera via Huffington Post
Food Photography via A Beautiful Mess
