I make every effort to give credit where credit is due. If you feel that I did not appropriately give credit, please let me know. Feel free to poke around and leave a comment as I said this is really a work in progress so any feedback would be appreciated.
BUTTER always means unsalted butter. I usually use organic
BUTTER for baking is always at room temperature
EGGS for baking are always at room temperature
FLOUR always means all-purpose flour. I usually use King Arthur Flour. I measure it by the spoon in and level method
SALT/PEPPER always means to taste - everyone has different tastes when it comes to salt & pepper
HERBS are usually fresh unless otherwise stated
Oven is always preheated
Pans are usually greased with Crisco (yeah I know yuck - but it works great for greasing)
I use a Panasonic Lumix FZ150 for photos. I've not had so much experience with inside shots using flash. I feel more confident with my outdoor pics, but since this is a food blog, there aren't too many outside shots. So this is a learning experience. I use the Joby Gorilla tripod. It is a really flexible, user-friendly tripod. We had originally purchased this tripod to use for a trip to Tanzania (ditto for the camera). It was definitely a great purchase (great trip as well).
*5/2014 I'm now working again, which is really cutting into my cooking time! I was only off for about 2 months and boy did those 2 months go fast. I'm trying to keep up with posting at least 3 times a week. If not, then you know I've had a busy, crazy week.
