Weekly Photo Challenge: Delicate

This is part of my experiment which I got inspired from here, Early Christmas by Sue Richardson.

I’ve tried many different shots outdoor and indoor following her technique and so far this is the best that I could get from.

Could you guess what they are? :D.

They are some tealights that I arranged in circular form. I did some editing in Picassa from its RAW file by increasing its shadow and applied filtered BW plus soft focus. The grainy that looks apparent in this photo after I increased its shadow has created such a different dimension from the original objects. It looks like white sand or snowflakes fall down and creating snowballs. That’s my interpretation anyway. A friend of mine called this picture as Axis Mundi.

So for that reason I submit this picture for Weekly Photo Challenge with Delicate in theme!

Have a Good Friday and have a great weekend ahead to everybody! Christmas is just round the corner! 馃槈

 

From Sweden to France: Laxpudding and Rhubarb Comp么te


This Wednesday I went to my friend’s place for a dinner as usual once in a week and she gave me a recipe that she got from a cafe in IKEA when she went there before. The recipe is a traditional Swedish dish called Laxpudding or Salmon Pudding. I used smoked haddock fish instead since smoked salmon is too expensive for me. 馃榾

The recipe that my friend got it from is slightly different with the recipe that you can read it here as well, Laxpudding.

Here the recipe that I got:

Ingredients

400 gr Lax Kallr枚kt (smoked salmon, frozen. I used smoked haddock instead0

10 medium size potatoes (I used 4 big size Cyprus potatoes)

1/2 tsp salt

3 eggs

4 dl single cream

50 gr butter

Green salad

Horseradish sauce

Method

Peel the potatoes and cut in slices. Butter an oven/serving dish and add alternate layers of salmon and potatoes (top and bottom layers should be potatoes). Sprinkle each potato layer with salt.

Whisk cream and eggs in a bowl and add to the oven/serving dish together with a couple of dollops of butter.

Heat in the oven for 50-60 minutes, 175 degree Celsius (350 degree Fahrenheit).

Serve with horseradish sauce and a mixed green salad of choice.

And here you go! I made it yesterday. 馃榾

My Laxpudding used smoked haddock

It tastes so delicious! I added one (1) fresh bird chilli because I like hot food. Still yummy!

And what is for a dessert? This time I made Rhubarb Comp么te from DeliaOnline‘s recipe. First time I tried this recipe I added some strawberries and last night I made it for the second time without strawberries but added 1 tsp of ground cinnamon instead. I served it with vanilla ice cream. Delicious!

From Sweden to France, it ends in my stomach, LOL.

Have a great weekend, everyone! 馃檪

Story Challenge: Letter “C” is for Cooking

Image


Cooking and photography, two become one! I do like cooking and baking and I do love photography. Two different things that blend together as part of my hobby. Since I have my own camera I learn how to shoot the cake or food I made especially if I want to share it online. 馃榾

I don’t know since when I like cooking. All I know is my big sisters and my mom always involved me in the kitchen for baking and cooking every time Christmas came when I was a kid. And as I grew up I liked to try new recipes in my spare time even until now.

As part of my entry for Story Photo Challenge: Letter ‘C’ by Frizztext then below are some pictures of a new recipe that I made few days ago called The Fastest Blackberry and Apple Tart from Delia Online.
