May Christmas brings LOVE and PEACE to all nations.
May it fills us all with JOY and HAPPINESS.
I wish A Happy Christmas to everybody 🙂
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! 😉
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. 😀
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:
400 gr Lax Kallrökt (smoked salmon, frozen. I used smoked haddock instead0
10 medium size potatoes (I used 4 big size Cyprus potatoes)
1/2 tsp salt
4 dl single cream
50 gr butter
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. 😀
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 Compôte 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! 🙂
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. 😀
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.
Fancy anyone?! 😀
Have a Blessed Sunday!
