Foodie Photos on Instagram & Cream Cracker Fish

By my own confession I'm a bit of a social media junkie. I started on Facebook but it was when I discovered Twitter that I was really smitten. I knew about Instagram but never really "got" it however in the last six months or so I've fallen completely in love with it. My own feed is a mixture of colour, vintage, gin, Scotland, quirky and of course food. Sometimes my posts are random but I also love taking part in Instagram challenges. My favourite is the weekly #capturingcolour run by Capture by Lucy, however in March I've also been doing English Mum Dot Com's #foodiephotoaday This blog post shares some of my recent favourites and also includes an Instagram pic and accompanying recipe for one of my favourite ways of cooking fish. Cream Crackers beat Ruskoline hands down.

    1. I started off with really good intentions for #foodiephotoaday but missed quite a few along the way. Fab challenge though and great to see others interpretations of each days theme.
