About Our Members

…the shining pride of it all. We know how lucky we are to have our people. They’re professional, have high ethics, care about what their name rides on, and work so hard to bring their A Game. It’s as transparent as a glass of water how much they all love supporting the Greater Atlanta Area communities and industries. Some may think getting that dish in the right position and in that light’s perfect sweet spot — or capturing that shot at just the right moment or making that “money shot” pose, then digging deep to find just the right words to tell a story is silly; but we don’t care. When it’s us, a camera and a story between you and exposure our attitude is, we have an attitude and we don’t care. There’s a lot riding on it!

  • Product Review: Schar’s 10 Grains & Seeds bread
    I have been a fan of Schar’s gluten-free products for almost as long as I have been following a gluten-free diet – 20 years. Their breads, cookies, crackers, and pastas are head and shoulders above their competitors in quality, nutrition, and selection. And they are free of preservatives and GMOs. I was stoked to hear […]

  • Spicy Tuesday – Mediterranean Red Rice – Oregano
    Funny to say – but true! If you can boil rice you can make this flavorful, colorful and delicious side dish, inspired by bright cuisines of the Mediterranean. Tomatoes and peppers are an important part of warm weather foods, and this recipe includes both. The garlic and red onion are full of antioxidants, and although […]

    These lentil mushroom meatless meatballs are healthy, hearty, and packed with flavor.  *Updated 5/23/17 to make plant based. Omit the Parmesan topping to make it completely vegan. For a vegan Parmesan grind up walnuts and nutritional yeast until it becomes small clumps. Protein can come from so much more than just animals. A majority of plants, such as broccoli, […]
