Last Saturday marked the ninth anniversary of the launch of this blog. Every now and then I like to go back and read my earlier posts to see how far I've come. The frequency of posts has definitely increased... but the quality of my writing and photography has improved quite a bit. 

(At least, they have according to my standards.)

But I haven't stopped trying to find ways to continue improving. With that in mind, I've been combing through the recipe archives and marking the ones that need work. I've taken new photos for have rewritten some of the recipes to breathe fresh life into them. 

This recipe for Grilled Chicken and Lemon Orzo Pasta is one of those recipes.

Now, the photos in the original post weren't terrible... but they weren't among my favorites. The lighting was horrible. Rather than take the photos during the day to take advantage of the natural light, I shot them after dark... under the harsh lights in our kitchen. I didn't make that mistake this time around.

Plus, as an added bonus, I had Stephen's help with the plating. It's said that we eat with our eyes first, so he sliced the chicken thinner than I did the first time around. Then he arranged the chicken slices alongside the orzo rather than on top of it. This way you could actually see -- and appreciate -- the pasta in its own right.
