St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and everyone in Chicago is gearing up for next weekend’s dying of the Chicago river and annual parade! Which means I spent this weekend recipe testing to create the perfect gluten-free, vegan Irish soda bread!

Irish soda bread is a quick bread made with baking soda as a leavening agent instead of yeast resulting in a dense savory bread with a texture that is a cross between a scone and a biscuit. The ingredients of traditional Irish soda bread include flour, baking soda, buttermilk, eggs, butter and raisins.

In light of the holiday, I thought it would be fun to highlight some old food photography of mine from 2010 when I last posted about Irish Soda Bread. When I started my blog back in 2009, blogger food photography was a totally different ballgame – a point-and-shoot camera and enough light to produce an in-focus image was sufficient. But over the years, bloggers have seriously stepped up their game.

Beginning with my days in the dark room of my high school to the day I first laid hands on a digital DSLR in 2010, I have always had a passion for photography. But if I’m being totally honest here, understanding the camera and photo composition never came easy to me. While I am still learning new things every day (there is always room for improvement!), years of food photography research, countless hours of practice, and a love for the hobby has kept me striving to create mouthwatering images that truly showcase how delicious healthy food can be!
