    Love your food photography! I do a CSA blog as weelll, but by the time I’m done cooking I forget to bust out the fancy camera the majority of the time. :)

      To be honest, a lot of these are shot with a iphone. And I can’t count the number of times we’ve eaten something only to have me say afterwards “I really wish we had gotten a picture of that!” I love your blog! I’m going to add a link into my post about it. :)

    Happy belated birthday! Also: wow, you really cook. We end up having pretty much the same things every week and I can guarantee nothing is as creative as what you have here. Nice job.

      Darlynne – to be honest, writing a blog like this really pressures me to try more recipes. But for people who don’t blog, I think sticking to tried and true recipes is so much more practical and is what I’d normally be doing (although I do like to try new stuff). And thank you for the birthday wishes! If you haven’t ever tried the crack pie recipe, it’s really amazing: http://scarlettabakes.com/milk-bar-mondays-crack-pie/

      It was so good but I felt like I needed to go into detox the next day from all the fat & booze. :D

    Kristina, my dear, I have to tell you again that Mr. B and I LOVED your birthday dinner. The eggrolls, the pork buns, and the crack pie were incredible. We’ve been talking about that pie ever since. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    And I’m glad you had a hangover from the bubbly. You needed that. ;-)

      I’m so glad you both were there to share it with me. And yes – you’re right. I totally needed that bubbly. :)
