Shutterbean is a unique and contemporary blog complete with creative recipes, professional photographs, and daily inspiring activities.
Shutterbean is the name of a blog written by Tracy Benjamin who is a working photographer/wife/mother based out of San Francisco, California. This site is not her job, but an outlet for her to express her favorite things about life in a creative and innovative way. She is a woman just like anyone else who has hobbies and interests, but writes it down and takes photos to show the world the amazing things she’s creating. Her posts consist of recipes, everyday life, vacations, and lists.
While there is more to Shutterbean than just the food, it’s truly the highlight. Every trip she takes, and most activities she does revolve around food. The recipes she creates are a must-try and they aren’t even difficult. She tries to make foods that any local grocery store will have and that doesn’t take master chef talent to produce. Shutterbean has both original and selected favorite recipes that Tracy presents with beautiful photographs that strives to do them justice (oh and they do!).
People go to Shutterbean for the recipes and photographs but they stay for Tracy. This blog is her journey of her life and just going through a few posts you get attached to who she is and you want to follow along with her. You can clearly hear her voice throughout the blog and at points you find yourself laughing out loud, knowing that she was probably laughing too while she posted it. Shutterbean is a great blog for new ideas on food, but an even better blog because you are able to truly get a glimpse of someone’s soul. Make sure to check out Shutterbean for the best food, photography, and laughs you’ve had in a while!
