The Glory Of Food Photography

You know, taking food photos isn’t what it is cracked out to be.

Here is our lovely candlelight breakfast.

By the time I got through taking pics it was cold and soggy.
On top of that hubby had wolfed his down and there sat mine to be reheated in the microwave.

At any rate hubby said it was good but the ambiance of the moment was lost.
I believe I got this from an old Cook’s Mag. Not sure though.
I used ground mace instead of the fresh nutmeg here.

Yogurt Waffles

6 tablespoons butter, melted
1 3/4 cups white flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
4 eggs
2 cups plain yogurt
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg

I know, I know, the silver placement..duh..Ms. etticut I ain’t. I might crash your posh party in a baseball cap!

    Yeah, by the time you take the picture it never is as good as it should have been.

    I hear you, about food photography. My husband’s new jokey line is, “I haven’t had a hot meal since she started the blog!”
