The Art of Food Blogging
Please allow me to introduce a very talented member of our Food World .
Carol Egbert of
Carol is a most talented artist, and for our Foodie pleasure she has given us an
 abundance of most pleasing watercolors as well as graphic designs. 
Plus some favorite food delights, as in her 50's food recipes.
She resides in Vermont,  is a mom and wife as well as most talented artist...
It is such a pleasure to have Carol join us here... 

Please welcome Carol...

I have always been interested in cooking. I like to make food that tastes
 good and the way things look is as important as how they taste. Perhaps that is 
because I am a painter who cooks and I am a cook who blogs…
I use my watercolor paintings to illustrate my blog.
 Sometimes an image has a direct connection to a recipe I post as in my post Buttermilk is Cool

and sometimes it's a whimsical choice, as in my post for
  Linguini with Fresh Tomato Sauce

Recently I found a cookbook published in Vermont in 1954. It's filled with recipes
 and hints that reflect what was happening in kitchens in the 1950s.
 I have been combining selections from this cookbook with
my paintings to create posts. Here’s one for a
Peanut and Bacon Sandwich

I also design bookmarks, labels and notecards that can be downloaded and
 printed for free. I call these PIN’s and - PIN means "Print It Now". 
When you visit my blog you'll see PIN - Print It Now in the column on the left 
under the basket of blueberries. I hope you find something there you like.

Thanks to Alisha, Adam and Grely for inviting me share some of my paintings 
in this guest post. Carol Egbert

And thank you Carol for sharing with us :)
