Food Porn

Lately my husband has been making fun of me for taking pictures of some of the meals/dishes I cook. I realize that this may seem odd to some but I got the idea from a few other blogs and as it turns out its refered to as "Food Porn". I also decided that if I spend more than an hour making something I have every right to photograph it.

So I give you my most recent creations (well, some of mine and some of Martha's):

Maple Glazed Pork Loin with Baked Apples & Onions, complete with homemade mashed potatoes, Butternut Squash, roasted for soup and Baked Brie with Fig Paste, wheat crackers & Bartlett pears.

The pork loin was soooo good, its only problem was that the glaze is made with maple syrup and balsamic vinegar and when it cools it becomes more hard candy than glaze. But it was still great, especially with the roasted apples and onions.

I try to make more elaborate (i.e. 'time-consuming') dishes on Saturday nights or Sunday afternoons when I have time to kill. I'm still looking for today's recipe. Maybe Chicken Kiev or a Pork Roast. I'm definitely making cupcakes though, I have new frosting toys to play with so stay tuned for more food porn.
