Cooking on a Sunday Night

Before I write about what I made this weekend, I want to ask all of you reading this to PLEASE send me your favorite cupcake recipe with a great fluffy frosting. I am dying to make cupcakes!!! (and eat them) But please no crazy ingredients, I live in South Korea and not everything is as easy to find.


Man you must think, she makes a lot of bread. Every Sunday we are out of Bread. Adam eats a lot of it :)

Food Shots: Bella Di Notte is Back

So the other night I got the hankering for some finely cooked Italian food. Now, this is hard to come by in Ulsan as there are many “Italian” restaurants or restaurants that serve “Italian” food but few actually make it properly. However, Bella Di Notte was not one of “those” restaurants and quickly gained a following here in Ulsan before it closed down last year. However, it is back now and closer to my place. I went there last night with my wife and got some shots to support an upcoming article for Ulsan Online.

At any rate, I love using my 50mm f/1.4 for food. Some is just something about the bokeh and the DOF that makes me love playing around with it. However, my wife hates it as she usually has to wait until I am finished shooting before she can eat. This was particularly painful last night as the food looked so amazing. Here are some of the shots that I got.

Guest Post: Asian Meatballs over Sesame Soy Noodles

Hi Ovenless Cheffies. My name is Kristen Ramirez and I'm from the great
state of Texas. Lindsey has granted me the privilege of being a guest author on her blog for her ovenless foodies. I am a mom of 2 beautiful girls and stay at home right now, but in my pre-child life, I was a professionally trained chef. I don't get paid to cook anymore, but someday soon again I will. Lindsey asked me to create something for her followers and after much thought on what is available overseas, I came up with a play on spaghetti and meatballs Asian style. Sesame and soy noodles, colorful veggies, and gingery, garlic meatballs.

Asian Style Meatballs over Sesame Soy Noodles

For the Meatballs:

1 lb ground pork
6 garlic cloves
1 1/2 inch piece fresh ginger
1/4 onion-feel free to use a few green onions instead
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
