FOOD, beautiful food...............can't live without it.
Taking photos of it is an art, and I've yet to master it.
I know getting great foodie pics requires the right lighting,
a tripod, and perhaps perching on ladders etc.
Meanwhile, until I have time to master all that, I'm just
flying by the seat of my pants - I'm not a food 'stylist'
in any way, shape or form.
What you see here are a few things I rustled up, and managed
to get pictures of before gobbling them up, in my little
All these images were captured with my trusty Olympus SP-590UZ and probably on the Cuisine Scene setting.
A little PicMonkey editing added of course.
I still love to prepare English recipes, dessert crumbles
being a favorite. I enjoy many fruits cooked, especially
for cool evenings when a warm dessert is a treat.
This was a blackberry and apple crumble..........with what
I like to think/hope is a healthy topping of steel
cut oats, Demerara sugar and few chopped nuts........
............served for dessert with a dollop of plain
Greek yogurt taking the place of cream.
No meat preparation in my kitchen - have been
vegetarian (well a non-meat eater - do enjoy fish and dairy)
for over 35 years.
My baked stuffed red peppers, made on the run, used
up some already cooked lentils, black rice and quinoa,
I added chopped herbs, grated fresh Asiago cheese,
and a drizzle of olive oil.
Now when it comes to baking, I love getting my hands into flour.
Favorites from my oven include whipping up a few scones.
I love mixing, baking and of course eating scones!
These above are strawberry for teatime, but I also
love to make savory scones, especially a wholewheat
cheese version to serve with a salad or a nice
bowl of steaming veggie soup.
