Brandon and I stayed in Columbus this Easter weekend, so we didn’t indulge in any large family feasts. Growing up, the usual menu for my family’s Easter meal was ham, asparagus, cheesy potatoes, and some sort of dessert usually in pie or cake form. I took the easy route for our feast for two and took a little from each menu item and transformed it into a delicious quiche. (the cheese from cheesy potatoes and pie crust from the dessert, in case it wasn’t obvious)
It was tasty. Go ahead and make it.
Two things I’ve discovered since I’ve started this blog: photographing food is hard! and I don’t have an amazing natural talent for it. I think the process photos are decent (did you see that cool ombre effect with my scallions?!) but once it comes to the final product, which is what really counts, I totally miss the mark. Here’s the best one of the bunch:
It seems like all the successful food photos have perpetually sunny kitchens constantly being flooded with natural light in an ever-sunny, but not over-exposed, world. Whereas my kitchen is dark by dinner time and lit with wimpy halogen track lights. I’ll make do for now, and in the mean time I’ll keep working on those pesky photography skills.
