The Camera Lens Mug

The Camera Lens Mug

This is another post for foodies who like photography, hot on the heels of my quick review of The Food Stylist’s Handbook. It’s The Camera Lens Mug, which is one of the only ways I’ve ever seen photography and food literally combined.

When I go out to eat, it’s about the food – first and foremost. But once you have good food there are plenty of other things to appreciate about a nice restaurant including the decor and the service. One of those little things that I happen to like is when restaurants do pretty or inventive folds with their napkins, primarily because as a child this ... Read More »

Duet Bundt Pan

Duet Bundts

The only thing better than one bundt cake is two bundt cakes, mostly because the designs of those lovely round pans put out cakes that are as wonderful to look at as they are to eat.

The silicone cups look like skulls with their tops cut off – creating the perfect cavity for baking a cupcake. The ... Read More »

Witch’s Fingers Cookie Pan

Witch Finger Pan

Witch’s fingers are a classic Halloween cookie and, while I don’t generally make them myself, I’ve eaten more at Halloween parties than I can count. They’re shortbread or butter cookies that are formed into a knobby, finger-like shape, given small lines for joints to add realism and finished off with a sliced almond “nail.” They’re creepy and definitely remind you of the wicked witch when ...
