About Me


IMG_1527a-2

Hey there, I'm Hannah Queen, baker and photographer. I'm 23, I live in southern appalachia, and I love Jesus. I like simple things, fresh ingredients and flowers, tea with honey, good music (mostly folk and bluegrass), trips to the farmers market and early mornings. I’m the happiest when I’m in the kitchen, creating something tasty, and when I’m behind my camera, taking pictures of everything I see.

Places you might have seen me: 
Saveur, NY Times, Oh Joy!, Jamie Magazine, Photography Blogger, Relish, The Kitchn (and here), Real Simple (and here), Gourmet Live (here too), food 52, Eliza Magazine, Artful Blogging Magazine, Style at Home Spenser Magazine, Lily, Foodies of the World, Food News Journal, N.E.E.T. Magazine, Women's Health Magazine, Peanut Butter & Co, The Kitchen Generation, Fine Cooking, Fork Magazine, Chow.com, The Huffington Post,

A couple of FAQ:

What camera do you shoot with? A canon 5d mark ii with a 50mm f1.4 lens.

Where do you get your props? They come from all over the place. Ikea, target, anthropologie, shopterrain.com, etsy shops.

What kind of lighting set up do you use? I shoot exclusively with natural light. I have a table set up by a window, and use a piece of foam core board to reflect.

What's your favorite food? Bread. And roasted chicken. And roasted sweet potato. Oh, and these brownies.

Can I hire you?  Absolutely! Email me at honeyandjam@ymail.com.

  13. I know I don't have to say this, because I know you must hear it a lot, but you're incredibly talented. Simply gorgeous little blog you have here! I love it. It's the first one I've subscribed to on my google homepage. Which says a lot because not only am I food blogger, but I read a lot of other food blogs out there. You've got something really special here. I had to share with you, because in my opinion, there simply is no such thing as too much praise and you truly deserve it!

    Lovely!!

  15. Congratulation for the beautiful blog! You are really good at photography. Where do you learn taking great photos? Another question, why don't you like cilantro? it is a wonderful thing! Have you tried it in Thai foods?
    I'd love to cook for you someday and see if I can change your mind.

    ReplyDelete

    I can't believe you are 19!!!!! You are an amazingly talented lady. How wonderful for you to have found these passions already and to be doing so much with them. I am so excited to be along for the ride.
    I just visited your other blog and I am in love with that one too.
    Really, you inspire me every time I visit your blog--your baking, your words, your photos--all of it.
    Keep doing what your doing and tell your Mamma she did one fine job of schoolin you!
    Cheers,
    Greta E.

  27. Your blog is just lovely. I too am nineteen, homeschooled, a blog addict, and love Jesus with all my heart. :) So nice to share that in common with another blogger & artist. I have just begun to love baking once again, after many years of a love/hate relationship with it. Your photos are simply inspiring. Definitely making your site a favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hi Hannah, I just came across to your blog and LOVE it! and also impress with your photography...wow, you're young and VERY talented!! Since someone already asked what kind of camera you're using, I want to ask you what type of lenses that you're using. I dont have a blog, but you inspire to create one!(soon...cross my fingers) However, I do have a website thingy that you can check out. :)

  33. You are a very talented photographer, and from what it looks like, also a very talented baker! Keep it up, as either could be an excellent career for you in the future. If not a career, then certainly a lifelong passion. Just stumbled across your blog, it is lovely. THanks for sharing.

  35. Hello from a fellow foodie/blogger, Hannah. I can only echo all the good comments above... beautiful, inspiring... such talent and grace.

    I'm curious about the photo for your header. I'm assuming you took it. What I'd really like to know about is that tea cup -- it is so unique and... I don't know, rustic. It looks like the work of a skilled pottery maker. Can you share info about it?

    Keep up your excellent work. I was thrilled to find the German Apple Cake recipe -- looks and sounds like the cake my husband's late German mom used to make for him. I would love to be able to replicate it for him.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hi Lynn! That cup is from shopterrain.com and it's called a "Wabi Sabi" mug. I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I found your blog through my cousin's site and am now hooked. I love your pictures, and of course the food. How fun that you were homeschooled--my husband and I were both homeschooled (we met in the second grade at a Book It! pizza party) and very much enjoyed the experience.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hi Hannah, Thanks for the info about the "Wabi Sabi" mug. I just checked out shopterrain.com and... WOW.... I know this is going to be one of my favorite places to shop for special items. Thanks so much!

  39. Dear Hannah,
    I came across your blog from a fellow flickrite who made me their contact. In her caption below her picture she sites you as her images viewed for the tasra365 project. Please excuse the fact I'm not computer savvy and don't know how to hyperlink. I don't have a MAC. Here's the flickr site who introduced you http://www.flickr.com/photos/priti_j/4388227247/.
    Now, I would like to tell you that I am simply impressed with your knowledge of photography and command of writing style. I could contribute it to homeschooling but I've met incredible young adults like yourself who learned in public schools. Ultimately, it comes down to desire, will, ambition and passion. You have these great attributes.

    Very soon, you will be discovered by magazines if you haven't already. Take your talent along with your love for Jesus and enjoy your future.

    You are a the breath of fresh air needed today.
    Good luck in your endeavors.

    BTW, I am number 315 to follow you.

  50. Hannah,

    Your blog is my favorite one to read. I love your simple, nature-first photography and your posts about all of the wonderful things in your life. Thank you for providing great reading! I have one question for you: do you use a photo editing program? If so, which one would you recommend? How do you get the words in your blog title on the egg picture? Thanks for the advice, and I'm looking forward to reading all your future posts!

    I know you have heard this before, but I just had to post a comment to let you know that I stumbled on your blog...looking for a peach jam recipe. Let me tell you that I am in awe!! Your blog site...recipes...pictures and moments captured are amazing. I am now a fan and hooked. I also love to bake and can't to try your recipes! Being that I am from Georgia, I too have a love for wholesome cooking, baking, and food for the soul.

    What a great blog! I found it via Tulips and Flight Suits. I'm learning how to cook and bake and enjoy it-and I'm sure I will find inspiration here.

  68. I just "happened" upon your blog - from a twitter trail....It is lovely. How blessed you are to have found your passion at such a young age. I think your recipes look amazing - I am all about a good scone and Southern summers without the unbearable humidity. Keep up the good work!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I actually work at the same University as Noel Barnhurst (this is how I found your blog) and I was googling some of his work. You have some great stuff on here! Your photos are incredible for not having any formal training - you have an amazing eye! I, too, am partial to delicious baked goods from fresh and whole ingredients. We share two of the same passions! Keep it up!

  75. Hannah,

    I have always loved your photography on flickr and just decided today to check out your blog. I LOVE it!! I cannot wait to try out some of the recipes you posted!
    I am homeschooled and love Jesus with all my heart...it is so awesome to hear that you do to!!
    I am a photographer as well. One question I have: so you edit your pictures? And what with?
    It has been an incredible treat to visit here...thanks! I'll stop in often!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. So I was trying to figure out if just eating a piece of toast and one fried egg for breakfast was bad for you and I fell in LOVE with a picture of yours of a piece of toast with egg so I clicked on it....that was about 4 hours ago. Now I am basically stalking you (>,<). Your sites are amazing, your images are GORGEOUS and as a photographer I love running into other peoples blogs and websites. I couldn't ever think of a cute little name for anything I do blog/business wise so I just settled for something with my name on it but looking at your stuff I now want to think of something more unique. There is another lady who does photography of babies, her site is "Milk&Honey" I think yours and hers goes somewhat hand in hand :)
    Very cute, love the site and will definitely follow often!

  81. Very sweet blog! Nice and simple. I'm almost a Ga girl, born in Jacksonville, FL, which everyone says is really just a part of Ga. ;0) My mom is from Brunswick. I look forward to looking at all your yummies! Bountiful Blessings to you.

    ReplyDelete
  82. So, I cooked a couple of your recipes in the last few weeks, and not only have you got myself addicted, but Boyfriend has started to fall in love with your blog too.. So long as I cook. Disasters happen when he goes near a fork, let alone a whole kitchen.

    I happen to know a lot of friends here who have done the same - you have admirers in Sydney, Australia! Which I guess makes you an international sensation! :P

    ReplyDelete
  83. your photography is gorgeous! I put off starting a blog for the longest time because I wanted to wait until I had the right name. I think that was probably the hardest part about starting one!

  94. Hi from Ohio. I came upon your blog a few months ago and am very impressed. Your photography is beautiful and inspiring and although I haven't tried any of your recipies I'm hoping to do so soon. I see that you've come to a slowing of posts, I recognize that too, especially after your experiences with your Mother last year. Writing can be very theraputic, so please keep on doing it. Hoping you have a great holiday season this year spent doing the things you love.

    ReplyDelete
  95. haha, I know what you mean about the name. I thought of a name for my blog forever. And now I'm not entirely sure... Love yours though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  96. Seriously, how have I never seen your blog before? And you should hear the rabbit trail I followed to find you... last week my cousin in Colorado told me about a blog a friend of her's has and said it would be something I would really enjoy cause I really like to make things from scratch, well her friend in turn mentioned on FB today about a blog she really likes... and his blog is in... Australia. So after taking a gander through his blog I see a blog that he has listed that looks really interesting... hmm honey & jam.... two things I'm really passionate about! So my journey started in Indiana, headed to Colorado, then Australia, and now Georgia! Across the world and back!!

    (now if only i could come up with a name for my blog that i really like... you would think that at 47 i would be a bit more decisive.... not so but thankfully the Lord is patient!)

    Well it was nice "meeting" you and I can hardly wait to try so many of your recipes!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I love your blog, Hannah! I've been following & baking from here for almost a year, but never read your about page. I am so happy you did! I was surprised you are so young. You are so talented! :)
    I am a Jesus follower who grew up homeschooled, too. And I love to bake & cook. I wish I could take amazing photos like you!

  98. you're so beautiful and lovely! <3

  99. Hello hello!! First, I LOVE the name! Second, I love Jesus too! And love the fact that you said you love Him on on your 'about.' Third, my friend, Tana (or Tanya) Karpitskiy says she knows you. So I think you should come to MN and you and Tan can go on a picture frenzy while you and I whip up some amazing things in the kitchen! We can make some amazing Russian cakes. What do you say?:)

    ReplyDelete
  100. I love that you said you love Jesus in your bio :) I knew you seemed like such a sweet girl! I love Jesus too! Love your blog and once I'm out of college for the summer, i will try alot of your recipes!

  101. I just came upon your blog after reading the Lemon Cake with Black Tea Frosting recipe. Very talented. And even more impressed you are 21! You have been given a gift & thank you for sharing it. I'm a worn out mom of 3 boys ages 6 & under. Your blog uplifted me. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I just recently made the Lemon Cake with Black Tea frosting and I have to say, BRAVO! I made it for my dad and I think that he is also a fan. Anyway, I was wondering if you allowed people to pin your photography? I would love to put this on my Pinterest board but I do not add pins from websites if Pinterest logos are not there. (I do this on principle since I know not all photographers are fans.) Thank you!

    1. That's so kind of you to ask! Go right ahead, I love pinterest. So glad you & your dad liked the cake. :)

    1- You said you shoot with a Rebel before (I own a Rebel T3i), do you find a big difference between the Rebel and the 5d mark ii?

    2- How do you do your beautiful dark photos?

    Thanks in advance and you are so gifted. Hélène from La Cuisine d'Hélène

  105. Hi Hannah!
    Yours was among the first few blogs that I sifted through when I first got inspired to start a cooking blog as well. Love the lighting in your photos and the painstakingly-created carefree way you arrange the ingredients and additional props.

    A few months ago I decided to start my own blog - unfortunately I don't have a professional camera like yours, and use only my cellphone camera to capture the important moments during my cooking process (for quick shots and easy reach). Just wanted you to know that as my site evolves, yours will always be among those who I go back to every once in a while for references and ideas, so thank you very much for past and future inspiration!

  113. Hey Hannah!

    I managed to find your blog while avoiding studying. I live in the mountains of North Carolina, and you completely hooked me with your post "of apple orchards and pie parties." I often find myself dreaming of Appalachian autumns, particularly this time of year, and you reminded me of the promise of the coming months. Thank you for making my mouth water and putting a smile on my face.
