    I love how you used Asian noodles! It looks really tempting. Just curious, is using a macro lens your go to for food photography? I don’t have one yet and choosing my next lens to buy is so challenging.

    Well, Nicole all you had to say was spicy and you have my undivided attention. I love your take on the soup and we are big Penzy’s aficionados and when we use paprika we always go for the smokey taste — I’m sure that would be wonderful with this post.

      Spicy! Spicy food is exciting, isn’t it? I’ve actually not bought that many spices from Penzeys (The Savory Spice Shop is my go-to) but I really do love Penzeys paprikas! :)
