Greetings!! I took quite the hiatus from posting didn’t I? I never thought once I had a full time job in photography that I would lose motivation for my personal work. Boy, was I wrong. Turns out having a full time job means you come home exhausted and by 7:30 are asleep on the couch. I know, I know. If I really wanted to I could have made every effort and had been posting still. But, I’m human and I’m going to stop beating myself up over it. I did enter some images to a global food photography contest. Found out in early April that I didn’t make the cut. A disappointment, but also a reality check. Most of the work I entered was from last year. If I want to try again next year I need fresh material. The only way to do that is to buck up and start cookin’ and shootin’ again.
A while back I posted about Ebelskivers (danish pancakes) and the cookbook I had purchased containing several mouth watering options. I talked about going through the entire cookbook and posting each recipe that I made. Now that I’ve made three recipes from that book I realize that Ebelskivers are a very high maintenance food. Maybe I won’t do every recipe, but I have a few selections that I’m eager to try.
First off, the molten chocolate Ebelskiver. Much like the molten chocolate lava cakes that you can get at pretty much any food chain for dessert. Rich, fluffy chocolate cake that when sliced oozes a glistening pool of bittersweet chocolate filling. Sprinkle with a dash of coco and powered sugar, pour yourself a tall glass of ice cold milk and prepare yourself for a mouthful of decadence.
