Your photos are beautiful. I need to learn.
Firstly, the Hemingway line is obvs at the end of The Sun Also Rises :)
Secondly, these pictures are FAB. And drool-inducing. And I still owe you $10 for the treats!!!
Your cupcakes look awesome! Especially the 'sea' ones with the shells and sand :D I am incredibly jealous of your photography skills, mines never come out looking as professional as yours so well done :D
Hey Ellen's Cakes! Thanks for stopping in! I've moved on over to kellybakes.com. Check out my new blog and see what I'm up to! There's even a contest going on :)
The plum tart was delicious - not tart at all - the crust was excellent - I would like to sue it for other pie recipes....Thanks for sharing Kelly!!!
Thanks, Marybeth! I'm always happy to share recipes (and baked goods!). I'll be sure to give you a shout when I bake something next so you can share in the goodies :)
I love new england seafood fests...well except for the caloric issues. Glad you had a good time!
And why exactly were these strange men harassing you? I'm sorry your day started off yucky, but at least you got some delicious noms to make up for it. I'll have to try these out on one of my cheat days... I'm currently eating a slice of mango key lime cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory... so. good.
So sorry you had such a bad day... However something good sure did come of it - these are beautiful! Great photos!!
They were harassing me because they were friends of the guy that hit me, so they tried to make it seem like I was overreacting. I'm just glad it's over and that I at least got to eat a most delicious dessert [and that my lightbox took such great photos at 11:30 pm! go little lightbox, go!]
wow, I can only imagine how good they taste, but I can totally appreciate those pictures, they are fabulous! Sorry you had to deal with a crappy situation to get you to such a tasty situation!
You know... I hear this week is National Doughnut Day. Perfect timing! They look delicious!
I keep meaning to make these, I had all the ingredients and put them to other uses...next time I see a giant sweet potato in the house, I'm gonna do it.
Thanks, Lindsay! And Beth, you definitely should! They're super easy--the only thing that I struggled with was patience while they rose [hence, why I don't make a lot of recipes involving yeast], but they were worth the wait :)
What a cute post! I loved your descriptive account,from beginning to end. Glad you're enjoying the new gadgets. It was great to meet you at EWR!
Ugh, hungry now!!! (But great post!)
Great lightbox! I need to rework mine, it's been a bit overused, but it's so helpful! Glad the panini press made it
Thanks y'all! It was great to meet you both, Betty Ann & Beth! I've actually hit a snag with my lightbox, as I keep ending up with the box showing in the pictures. I also forgot that The lightbox should have 3 lights around it, so I went on an epic quest to find cheap desk lamps and both Walmart and IKEA failed me. I've made two separate attempts and failed. boo. At this point I wonder if it would just be cheaper to have bought a lightbox online :/
