Homies Photography Award Nomination + a Cookbook Sneak Peek!

Against All Grain Cookbook


UPDATE: I WON!!!! Thank you so much everyone for voting! Check it out here.

I was nominated for a few categories over at the Kitchn’s annual “Homies” awards. Because of your votes, I was able to move ahead to the next round of voting in the photography category. I have dedicated the last six months to improving my photography skills for my book, so as a fully self-taught photographer, this nomination came as a surprise and a huge honor. Michelle from Nom Nom Paleo won it last year, so you know I would be in company if I was lucky enough to win this year.


The voting is only open until Feb 13th and I thought it would be fitting to give you the first-ever SNEAK PEEK at some photos from my new cookbook 



I would SO appreciate it if you could take a couple of minutes to vote for me in the Food Photography Category. JUST CLICK HERE You just have to create an account quickly and verify your registration thru email.

While you’re there, make Paleo dominate and vote for my friends Civilized Caveman for Best Recipe Blog and PaleOMG for Best Healthy Cooking Blog.

Against All Grain Cookbook Sneak Peek (available for preorder on Amazon mid February!)

You can see how I’ve improved and what kind of style of food photos you can continue to expect on Against All Grain. My theory is if it doesn’t make your mouth water, it’s not worth wasting your time trying out the recipe! See if you can keep yourself from salivating…

    Beautiful Danielle! So excited for the book!

    • Against All Grain

      Thanks Heather!

  • Tami Jo Eaton

    You have awesome photos!! I know it is probably more expensive to publish a book with photos, but I honestly buy books if they have photos and I don’t buy cookbooks without. Even searching blogs, I search out pictures and if there are no pictures, I usually move on to another blog. Good luck ! I will go vote now.

    • Against All Grain

      Thanks Tami! Yes it is a lot more work/money to include photos for every recipe, but I think it is SO important! We eat with our eyes first!

    After the cookbook, open a restaurant!!

    If there the Olympics listed food photography as a sport I bet these photos should be a top candidate to win a gold no questions ask! Two thumbs up!
