I warn you, it's a little off the wall

I would hang this picture on my wall.
I started a seasonal tumblr and you can find it here. You could call it a "pop-up" tumblr as it will only last until the end of the year, or until inspiration runs out. It started when I began trying to figure out food photography a few days ago and realized there was one subject I wanted to photograph more than any other. I may have found my muse!

We finished Burma last night. More on that later, maybe even later today. 


  1. There are two sweets that I think you should try making (because you like candied citrus and old-world flavor profiles):
    Panforte di Siena
    Frozen Nougat

  2. I am ridiculously excited that you seem to be in the pro-fruitcake camp. My dad and I made fruitcake together almost every year when I was growing up, and now that I'm on my own with my husband, I make 2 fruitcakes and send one home to my dad.

    This year's version is in the oven RIGHT NOW, and for the first time ever, it's an experiment. I took my dad's classic recipe, cut the sugar in half, and replaced the white flour with almond flour and coconut flour -- just to see if I could make a grain-free version work. I'm all for holiday indulgence, but if I can cut a corner here and there to minimize tummy aches (thereby allowing myself to eat more!), I'm all for it.

    Happy baking to you!

  3. It may be rude to just drop in here and comment, and if so I apologize. I spent the morning with your book Buy It/Make It, given to me as a gift a while back and read cover to cover at the time.
    My family was at the beginning of what I knew would be a stressful day so I planned a “comfort food” break of mac n’ cheese and hot dogs. Recalling your advice to make the buns I had to dig out the book and read up on the recipe. I could not stop there and reread the whole thing with deep pleasure.

    Thank you.

  4. The link didn't work for me!

  5. Kristin -- I will! make those!
    Melissa -- I'll check your blog to see how those turn out. I think they should.
    Katherine -- I wish everyone was rude like that!
    Anonyous -- the whole Tumblr site is down.

  6. I would hang a picture of that on my wall, maybe in the kitchen, where my walls are bright red. I would not eat it. On another note, if you still have more ricotta than you can use, I found you another recipe, for cookies. It looks pretty good, the link is:

  7. My own version of fruitcake is in the oven right now. I've taken Alton Brown's fruitcake recipe which called for dried fruit, not candied, and I've blended it with my oatmeal bar-cookie recipe. There may be more fruit and nuts than batter, but the tastes I had before they went into the oven were wonderful. I don't plan to pour any booze over the completed bars, but one could. I'll post the results at this week.

  8. [url=]Wonderful[/url]. I precisely had to thank you so much once again. I am not sure the things I would have sorted out without the entire aspects shared by you on such area of interest. It absolutely was a traumatic condition in my opinion, nevertheless viewing the very expert style you resolved that made me to jump with gladness. Now i am thankful for this help as well as trust you realize what an amazing job that you are getting into training people through the use of your web site. Most likely you have never met all of us.[url=].[/url]

Or maybe you could give us something to look at, something that would connect what youre saying to something tangible? Just a suggestion.[url=].[/url]
