EXCITING NEWS: My recipe for the The Philly Cheese Fake, a vegetarian cheese steak, is to be included in a new book about cheese steaks by author Carolyn Wyman (Running Press, Spring 2009). I just did a photo shoot for the image that will go along with my recipe.

Help me decide. Which photo do you like best? Tell me why.

    Hi Elizabeth – Thanks for including me. I like 3 or 4 best. Okay 3 best. Hope this was some help.


  2. DaVE FiENd Says:

    I like 3 best, 5 & 7 are good too, but 3 makes me feel like you are saying “here it is, eat it” not just “here it is”

    I choose NO. 3, because the smile is more definite, less tentative. much love, Hope

  4. Vienna Says:

    I really love number 7. Number 3 would be my second choice.

    I like 2 or 4. Why?? 2: It’s very direct 4: It’s a bit inquisitive, as if you’re saying “see?” which I believe would have the effect of engaging the viewer.

    I saw a video documentary that I wanted to mention to you called “This is My Cheesesteak”.
    It is pretty stupid but it has had great success!! And – you should totally be in it.

    I like 5 and 6 – I like the face angle and hint of smile!

    CU at Playa!!! Woo Hoo!!!

    I like number 7 the most, followed by number 3.

    I would like to talk to you about the fabric that when worn generates energy. I am working on revising my web site and I have a paragraph about why I like fabric, and wondered if I could somehow , somewhere on the site include your article. By the way, I am a friend of Val’s mother.

    Number 7! I love it! 3 comes in at a distant second. I love 7!

    3 or 7. 3 is more friendly, inviting. 7 is sassier. (Is it cheating for me to write this? I could just tell you!) love, vaLerie k

    I prefer one with you BUT only if you have a happier, more engaged expression. otherwise, it’s like “umm, yeah, i just cooked this” rather than “THIS CHEESESTEAK ROCKS!” So with the choice, i’d prefer just the sandwich; BUT would be better if you were happier in the picture, like you’re psyched to serve it or can’t wait to eat it. Invite the observer in, grab em, you betcha!

    I like number 3 because it radiates a genuine feeling.
