Food is so beautiful

Franci 7 Jan 2011 Food

In preparing our Christmas dessert I twice had to stop and take pictures because the food was so beautiful.

First up, just admire the beauty of butter, sugar and eggs creamed together:

And when you cook up a syrup of sugar, butter and water, you get pretty swirls!

If I had a picture of bread dough, I’d share it with you… that’s another happy occurrence in my kitchen.

Forgive me, but I love making, eating and sharing food!

Yeah…to all of it.

Looks great Franci.
Out of curiosity, what were you making?
Hope that you are all nice and warm.

That IS beautiful.

I was making Tipsy Tart — a date pudding with lots of brandy in it. :-)

Mmm. I like that first picture — looks like cheesecake filling or what goes in the middle of Mom’s amazing Christmas morning Danish coffeecakes. Franci, I hope we get to do some baking together when we make it to NYC!

It sounds like Aunt Marti’s recipe for those Danish’s need to make it’s way over to NZ :)
