Koali & the new Soft Box!

This photo of Koali is funny. One because she looks a little chubby, but I assure you, she's not, her Dr. says she's perfect, and two because she absolutely did not want to model for me, but could not resist me bribing her with Salmon treats to sit for a few minutes. That's her, give me some treats face.

I just purchased a large new octagon softbox! I've been wanting one forever now but always hated studio lighting. I obviously prefer natural light, but I believe with some practice, it will be an amazing tool to be able to recreate light indoors that looks like nature made it.

So I will shoot more and hopefully become better at it.

Brown Butter Rice Krispie Treats

1/4 cup butter

1 (10 oz., about 40) pkg. regular marshmallows or 3 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal

In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. At this point, continue to cook butter until is begins to brown as light or as dark as you like. Make sure not to let it burn.

Add the marshmallows and continue to stir until the marshmallows have completely melted. Remove from heat.

Stir in the Rice Krispies cereal, coating them well with the melted marshmallow mixture.

Press the mixture evenly into a 13 x 9 x 2 inch pan which has been buttered or sprayed with non-stick spray or lined with wax paper.

Cut into squares when the mixture cools.
