Saturday Snapshot ... I Could Have Been A Contender!

When my mother first let me step up to the counter and grab hold of a spatula and a set of measuring spoons, I don't think she ever thought I would fall in love with the art of cooking the way that I have. I went to visit her and my Dad at the beginning of the month and when she asked me what I'd been up to, I told her that I was having fun cooking and photographing the foods that we eat for my food blog. She is agog at technology and wondered just what I could make that would be photo-worthy ... not to mention, the wonder she had that people actually like to read all about it. I chuckled and said I didn't think too many people DID give two figs, but it is a fun hobby and what the Heck. Then, I told her that I would do a little showcase of some of the things that I've baked over the past year and show them to her when I next visit. Saturday Snapshot seems the perfect venue for my little show-and-tell for Mom so ...

Look, Ma! I made it all by myself!

  2. I do hope your mother likes the photos. My mouth is watering... I want some apple, pear and raisin galette, but I'm supposed to be on a diet, but I do have apples, pears and raisins... maybe I could add cinnamon and eat them with natural yogurt. My Snapshot is at
