Now that I have a pretty diverse mix of posts on my page I wanted to start to experiment with things a little. I’m pretty excited to start playing around with some presets that I’ve made in Lightroom. This one is a dark matte preset, when added to the right dish, like this one, reminds me of something off of a menu in an old Chicago restaurant from the late ’70s or early ’80s. It keeps the details of the dish while adding a bit of mystique at the same time. What’s not to love, right? I did do a few variations of the preset one being a little brighter (as the one immediately below) than the others in this post. I love them all and honestly couldn’t make up my mind which one was best so why not post them all. 

This personal pizza is a favorite of mine that we discovered about a year ago when doing research on making healthier meals for our family. The bread is called “Nan bread”, it’s a flatbread that is healthier than regular bread or dough, with fewer carbs. The Nan-bread can be found at any local store in the bakery section and they come in several shapes and sizes. Throw some of your favorite toppings on, and you have a cheap, quick and healthier meal in minutes.
