Food and photography are two of my great loves. Cooking gives me so much pleasure and I love to entertain, especially with my family. Taking photos of the dishes I cook has offered me so much more and I strive to perfect both skills. Hopefully, I will be able to post a recipe and a photograph once a week. Please feel free to comment on my photographic techniques and on the recipes, too. This is an evolving blog so could change gears later on, but the basics of food and photography will not change. The recipes will be just whatever I like to cook or whatever prop I see that will work for a certain type of food-napkins, unusual serving pieces or thrift shop finds-anything goes!
