Spring madness

I've had an unintentional hiatus from being technical- which is an okay thing- but also from being creative- which isn't. Bizarrely, am taking a peaceful five minutes to go through scanned film and upload from my digital camera, and it is the most intense spring evening- the atmosphere is so heavy with impending thunder, you can almost smell it. 

My main task for today was to cook for a friend's baby shower and I made these dark chocolate and sea salt cookies (recipe here)...I must confess to being a bit dubious ( salt...chocolate...?) but now I am convinced.  I loved the way they sparked on the plate saying eat meeeeee :) I also got into a flurry and baked my own granola- rolled oats, pumpkin seeds, almonds, raisins, local orange blossom honey, vanilla extract, ginger and lots of cinnamon. It is not going to last long- it might be my favourite creation in a while.

Now to perfect food photos and develop some film...


  1. I like the way you thought about this, sparkling salt!

  2. I like those pictures, very rich ...

  3. This all looks amazing. It looks like you know how to do it just right!

  4. Thank you so much for your kind comment, Mary. I really appreciated it. And YES! Offspring is back! That show always puts me in a good mood.

    I love homemade granola, and your combination sounds awesome - I think it's about time I made some!
