Tapas Night

boards_TapasMy husband is a fabulous cook, one of those people who understands flavors and likes to experiment (it’s all above my head really). However, while he might be a master of the ingredients, he usually just plops the food down on a plate… delicious, but not very photogenic. As a photographer, this has been a matter of ‘serious’ discussion in our household.

Since I started this blog I’ve been begging him to step up his game… with my help of course.  Last night’s tapas dinner was a pretty good start, if I do say so myself. Hopefully this is the first of many food posts to come. Enjoy!

On today’s Menu:

Apricot, Pine nut and Gorgonzola Salad
Artichoke with Balsamic mayonnaise dip
Steak bruschetta with horseradish sauce
Prosciutto bruschetta with radicchio, basil and parmesan
and of course Strawberries with a touch of confectionery sugar

The Sweetness of Early Summer

The Sweetness of Early Summer

Today is simply a sweet day; it’s beautiful out, all the windows in the house are open letting in the smell of freshly cut grass, and we have a kitchen full of farmer’s market goodies all ready for a delicious dinner with friends on the patio. Plus, the sweet peas we picked up smell delightful and the strawberries are positively mouthwatering. I’m not sure how I managed to photograph them without devouring the entire bowl.

My Sweet Cinder

Hello blog, meet Cinder! She is the bestest kitty in the whole wide world. I, of course, am not the least bit biased on this matter. Seriously though, I love this cat, she makes me smile everyday…especially when she gets in the middle of one of my photoshoots.
