Welcome to one of our newest columns, Pretty in Pistachio, by Justine! PiP is Justine’s creative outlet for her love of food, cooking and baking (and a little bit of boozing 🙂 ). Enjoy her food creations and share your recreations on IG by tagging us @jonesandb. So here we go… Meet Justine!
Hi, hello, Justine here. Here to inspire.
Many times, people will spend years studying things they love and then never do anything with it. Well, right after college I took a 9-5 corporate job and I was starting to become one of those people.
My creative side was itching for an outlet and so Pretty in Pistachio was born. Although my blog is mainly about baking and food, I’m not a baker, a pastry chef, a connoisseur of delicacies. I didn’t spend years studying the difference between cake flour and all purpose flour or pastry dough and yeast dough. I’m an artist.
Pretty in Pistachio is a way for me to express my artistic and creative side through something everyone loves: food.
This blog allows me to be creative in my choice and combination of flavors, textures, plating, creative writing, and most importantly … I get to have cookie photoshoots! Who ever thought my fine art photography classes would come in handy when making sure a glass of milk is placed at the perfect diagonal to a stack of short breads and that the crumbs are placed just right.
I hope you enjoy the posts and become inspired to find a way to fit what you love into your life.
