Cookie Extravaganza!

Q: What is the best part about the holiday season? (Hint: It's NOT waiting in line at the store listening to "The Happy Elf" play on repeat.)

A: THE COOKIES, of course!

As a tribute to one of the most photogenic foods, here is my 2007 Holiday Cookie Extravaganza!


Here, witness the birth of some holiday-shaped sugar cookie goodness:

And later, all grown up and wearing some pretty, pretty frosting:

How did this sneak in with the cookies?! Well, they look pretty delicious... must be the sprinkles:

At first glance I thought EverySpoon was trying out her Photoshop skills, but I think the background might be an awesome placemat. Either way, she definitely has a steady frosting hand!

These are one of my favorite cookie types... note the glaze oozage:

Can't leave out the gingerbread, of course!

Now it's time to say goodbye, since I will be traveling most of next week and might not be able to post... but fear not, I will be back soon to spread more scrumptiousness!

Grilled Cheese of Supreme Awesomeness

I couldn't think of a better title for this post than what ninjapoodles already came up with here...

Ahhh... lovely, melty cheese. Bread grilled to perfection. Supreme Awesomeness indeed.

Stay tuned for some holiday themed posting tomorrow!

PMWP: a rare sighting

Here, a rare capture of the Pumpkin Maple Whoopie Pie (PMWP), fully intact. These frosting sandwiches are celebrated for their flavor and texture, although they are fairly unclassifiable within the dessert kingdom.

Here we have the more recognized image of the half-eaten PMWP. Notice the moist, chewy texture and the creaminess of the filling...

(chomp nom nom)
Unfortunately, the wily creature escaped soon after the photograph was taken.

Chocolate Chunk

I think I gained 5lbs. just looking at this photo:

5 "digital" lbs. Although now that I have the recipe, who knows...

Q: Does it matter if you aren't sure what kind of food you are looking at? Does that make the photo in any way less scrumptious?

A: No.

Case in point:


BTW, it's a stuffed & roasted tomato. See, your mouth was already watering before I told you.

Know your enemy

It looks so innocent... crusty... bready... delicous...

"Eat meeee!"

Before you know it... you're hooked. Bread addiction is a terrible thing.

Let's take a little journey into the extraordinary world of antipasto.

Cornichons, olives and onions are obviously meant to live together in harmony.

Next up, luscious salami...

And what antipasto would be complete without the best food in the world? (That's right, I said it.)

This is an entire WALL filled with CHEESE. Nothing can ever compete.

C is for...

These are cupcakes, people. Cupcakes.

As seen in the window of Ruthy's at Chelsea Market. I think it's pretty obvious which monster is my favorite.



Welcome to my tasty new blog! This is a safe haven for lovers of all things scrumptious, delectable, delicious... etc. I'll be attempting my own photography as well as scouring the web to bring you a daily fix of yumminess.

What better place to start than chocolate cake? Hafiz has lots of amazing photos on his flickr site. Better take your shot of insulin first.
