Pinch of Yum is Hiring!

Today is a FIRST EVER in Pinch of Yum history and I’m all 📢📢📢 about it! We are hiring! In the official, public, serious way. 😱 Like, you know us. Sooo super serious. The screaming face emoji = dead giveaway to the seriousness of this event. I guess technically we’ve done this before by offering very part-time positions to family and friends. But today we’re bringing our next job opening to the Pinch of Yum community because a) while it might seem like we mostly just hang out and eat all day (semi-true), there is actually quite a lot of work to be done around here and we could use a few more hands on deck, and b) we believe that the right person for …

My Favorite People to Follow on Instagram

Confession: I like to look at photos of people’s cute dogs, pretty food, and kids. I get excited about iPhone art. I’ve been known to take too many pictures of chocolate chip cookies and spend too much time editing them and obsess over which emoticon to use to adequately express how much I looove them. I like Instagram, a lot. So just for fun, here’s a list of ten of my favorite people to follow on Instagram. Who: Melissa Coleman aka The Faux Martha (thefauxmartha.com) Why: Those white backgrounds could not look more stunning. Plus, yum.
