But my less then perfect score isn't going to stop me from calling out some of the worst offenders of food blog pics.
Hands in pics
Whhhhhyyyyy?! I don't care how well-manicured your nails are, I don't want to see your weirdo hand and fingers. I get it, you can eat the food with your hand, you don't need to show me how you pick up a chip.
omg, ew gross.
Step-by-step photos of simple tasks
Complex methods or hard to explain procedures? Sure, go ahead and post pics on how to lattice a pie crust or make pull-apart bread. But don't waste my time showing me what it looks like when butter melts in the pan, or what diced peppers look like.

You're a genius with the camera. The food is just begging to be photographed. But after the second photo we all get what your roasted chicken looks like...really, we do.
Now onto the recipe and a photo that violates none of these grievances above.
Blue Cheese Crusted Pork Chops
-2 boneless pork chops
-1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
-1/2 cup panko
-2 tablespoons chopped scallions
-salt and pepper to taste
1. Combine the blue cheese, panko, salt & pepper, and scallions. Add a little olive oil just to keep the mixture binded together.
2. Place the pork chops under the broiler for about 6-7 minutes per side depending on thickness. Remove and top with blue cheese mixture, and broil an additional 4-5 minutes until the cheese is browned and melty. Let stand 3 minutes before serving.
