Weekly Photo Challenge:   My Mom’s Famous Pound Cake Recipe (Almost – I Can’t Give You All the Secrets)


Weekly Photo Challenge: Work of Art

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/work-of-art/

I really love capturing food.  This is my second post for this week’s photo challenge.

Here is a three stage production of a lemon pound cake in wait.

I will even include the recipe for all those blogosphere bakers.

1This is what your “Work of Art” should look like just before placing it into a pre-heated oven at 325°

 

2Here you will find the “Work of Art” resting for at least 30 to 45 minutes until the pan is cool to the touch.

 

3Now, with a plate securely atop the Bundt pan, firmly grip each side of the pan and plate and flip to show your completed masterpiece. 

Enjoy or Let them eat cake!

3 Sticks of butter

3 Cups of sugar

3 Cups of flour

1 Tablespoon of vanilla flavoring

1 Teaspoon of lemon Flavoring

1 Tablespoon lemon juice

  1. Pre-grease and flour the Bundt pan and set aside for later.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Work of Art on the Green Side of Dublin, Ireland


Weekly Photo Challenge: Work of Art

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/work-of-art/

The theme for this week centers on defining my understanding, interpretation, and overall ideal of a “Work of Art”.    In the words of Michelle W.,

 

Art is everywhere, though: in nature, in architecture, in literature, and more. It’s anywhere we see beauty and meaning.  For me, it’s in food. The creativity, forethought, and care that went into this beautifully cooked and plated lamb dish takes it from ‘dinner’ [sic] to ‘art’ [sic]”

 

Michelle W., I concur.

I am guilty of devouring my food more often than not through the lenses of my camera or smartphone well before fork meets plate.    A true culinary artist can have a lasting effect upon my synapses. Their culinary strokes across the plate captivate my inner spirit.  Just remembering the tasty delights within this post, I arise with fork and knife in hand.

Yes, food is a secret pleasure of mine.  The canvas of edible ecstasy below lives on far beyond the last bite.  Join me in viewing heaven on a plate from my time in Dublin, Ireland.

DSC03906A warm cup of cream of potato soup topped with parsley and fresh cream, simply divine.

 

DSC03990With a lascivious glint across my brow, I satisfied my hunger with this truly salacious work of art.  A slice of roasted pork butt, served alongside slow-stewed plums and cherries, mashed potatoes, and finished with a single apple slice.  This was truly a heavenly experience.

 

EYHCS, clicks the submit button, wipes mouth, hears the small rumbling from the bottom of her stomach, and leaves the keyboard in search of the Philly cheese steak calling her name.

I bid you adieu and Bon Appétit!
