pngEvery wonder how we pick photos for Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and more? The answer is simple!  Since it’s very difficult for Jennifer & Breanne to get out and visit every member to take photos for social media purposes, we rely heavily on your support and help! The majority of photos we post actually come from you, the members!


Email us your best photos of events, delish dishes, new inventory, etc. and we will turn them into Pinteresting looks & “Insta” addicting promotions!  So get out those cameras and start snapping and then don’t forget to email them to us.
