Happy Memorial Day! One way to celebrate this holiday is to spend time with family and friends and take a couple of hours to go on a picnic and remember the men and women who have fought and died for our country. There are so many different ways to pack a picnic basket, but simple items don’t make too much of a mess and they are quicker to prepare. Ideally, you don’t want to be carrying too much or have food that will melt before sitting down to eat. These are some picnic items that will result in a delicious and memorable afternoon.

To Eat or Not To Eat?

♦ Chocolate bonbons coated in edible luster dust

Whenever I see a picture of food that doesn’t actually look like food, I try to figure out how whoever made it did it. It takes serious time, talent, and imagination to not only think up something so creative, but to also go through with it and successfully make it. If I were presented with these luster-brushed chocolate bonbons, I wouldn’t know whether to save them for display or gobble them up. So, when you question whether To Eat or Not To Eat something, then you know you are dealing with food that is worth remembering, or at least worth photographing.

♦ Talent and time clearly went into the making of these too-cute-to-eat sushi rolls

♦ Roses made out of bacon…need I say more?

♦ Sushi made from sandwich ingredients

♦ McCake


Friday Features

Halloween is just around the coroner and I can’t wait! The good thing about fall is that October and November blend well into one another so that I can keep my pumpkin spice candles on my desk without feeling out-of-tune with the seasons. This weekend I am going to bake, bake, bake and get the house ready for one of my all-time favorite holidays. The countdown is almost up – enjoy the last few days! In the meantime, these are the things I’ve been watching + craving.
