Chicken & Dumplings

I was craving some wintertime comfort food recently and made this EASY Chicken and Dumplings recipe.

Chicken & Dumplings

Whether you call it chicken and dumplings or chicken and pastry, one thing remains:  it’s some good stuff.  I was actually going to make chicken noodle soup, but changed my mind and thought that I’d make chicken and dumplings at the last minute.

This was one of my first recipes on the blog, and my original photos needed a LOT of improving.

We all have to start somewhere, right?

Chicken and Dumplings

There’s always room for improvement, but you’ll see in my original recipe post just how much improvement I needed.

Photographing Chicken and Dumplings

So when the Chicken and Dumplings were cooked, I rushed a bowl of this good stuff to my little room where I take all of my food pictures.  You can see I have my background boards and foam boards stacked in the background, and I have my makeshift “table” set up by a window for natural light.

It works and I am so thankful to have a designated area where I can photograph food and store all of my food photography “stuff”.
