{appreciation post} at the table with mr. b

Howdy, friends!

Today we are mixing things up on CGM. A group of fellow food bloggers and I are going behind the blogger scene to bring you a day dedicated to our significant others. That’s right! You know that saying, “it takes a village to raise a family?” Well, it may not take an entire village to keep a food blog up and running, but it does take extra set of hands and emotional support to keep these recipes H-O-T.

We are taking a moment to sit down with our sous chef/hand model/editor/food therapist and ask them a few questions. Put them in the spotlight for a change. After all, we couldn’t do it without you!


Here is my little Q&A with my hubs, Mr.B. Enjoy!

1) What is your favorite blog called?

I don’t really read any other blogs besides Climbing Grier Mountain. Do I get bonus points for that answer?

2) What is your favorite prop?


3) What is the weirdest thing you have seen your spouse do for a blog post?

Watching her walk on top of the table while photographing food. I’m pretty sure she should be wearing a harness of some sorts.

4) If you could have your own blog what you call it?

Geek in Wolves Clothes – it would be about my travels and everyday shenanigans

5) What do you do for a living and what are your hobbies?

Job: I’m an international consultant for oil and natural gas

Hobbies: I play the guitar, fix cars and motorcycles, snow ski, fly fish, and mountain bike.

6) Who does the dishes in your household?

SHE DOES! Although, I am a great sous chef, so I try and help in the kitchen as much as possible.

7) What’s your favorite meal that Lauren cooks?

Most people will think this is strange, but I love her brussel sprout hash

8) Team Tater Tot or Team French Fry?

“Gimme ur tots Napoleon. . .”, definitely Team Tot.

9) What is the one thing you’ve learned being married to a food blogger?

Food Patience. Whenever we are at a restaurant I always remind myself that the food will be photographed before we eat. I’ve also learned about the social media world and how people network through each platform. It’s quite fascinating.

Make sure and check out the rest of the food bloggers Q&A appreciation posts! A round of applause for all the significant others!

    Erin | The Law Student's Wife — September 12, 2013 at 13:30

    So cute! Love this Lauren. But I have to say, I disagree with Mr. B on one point…team french fry! Unless they are sweet potato tots. Then, all bets are off.

    • Lauren replied: — September 12th, 2013 @ 19:45

      Thanks, Erin! And sweet potato tots all the way!!

    Brussels sprout hash is a fantastic answer! I’ll have some too please! And after reading half of these posts I have decided that a food blogger furniture climbing harness would make a million dollars.

    • Lauren replied: — September 12th, 2013 @ 19:47

      Yesssss! We definitely need to go into the harness business or provide some sort of safety classes:)

    You mean, Shenanaigans?

    Aw, I want to do one of these with my hubby now! Haha… I try and be as painless as possible to him (though he’s a generous sort… sometimes he’s actually like *fork poised* “Do you want to take a photo first?” when I try to spare him!). Your Mr B is lovely. So glad that you guys have each other to bounce ideas off. And I would totally read his blog… just for the title :)
    P.S just found your blog today via Rachel Cooks. Love it. You’re beautiful inside and out! xx

    Some of them are very beautiful and expensive with braided trunks.
    The amount of quick cash loan can alter between $50 to $ 1,000 relying
    on the banks and the state in which you apply
    for it. However, many people that keeping their cash linked
    up for prolonged or generating lower interest failures the objective of keeping and
    having entry to resources when needed. Each time, the live studio audience seems equally emotionally invested in
