Ben Loves Marshmallows
A nice campfire was always a pleasant way to end a day of fieldwork in the Yukon. And part of that campfire experience definitely involved marshmallows. My first time in the Yukon, I was with another student, Ben, mapping out vegetation along rivers. We both loved campfire marshmallows, and I was able to capture Ben’s elation in this photo. However, I was unable to capture our disappointment upon trying some horrible ‘flavoured’ marshmallows…I’m not even sure I could describe what they tasted like!
Tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, a crispy crust…this margherita-style pizza was quite delicious to say the least. My niece Greta enjoyed a slice this past weekend and certainly thought it was yummy. We’re happy our local pizza place always makes great pies!
Berries in a Berry Bowl
I’m a huge fan of berries. Just staring at this photo of luscious red wineberries is making me hungry! These berries are actually the fruit of invasive plants…so the more berries we ate, the less the invasive plants were able to propagate and spread.
Also, berries seem to taste a lot better when eaten out of a cool handcrafted berry bowl. Yum.
Christmas Eve Snow Shrimp
This past Christmas Eve, Heather’s Uncle Jakie braved a bit of Christmas snow to cook up some big barbecue shrimp. Thankfully, the shrimp were delicious and his efforts were not in vain.
Delicious Nagle’s Ice Cream
Sure, it’s the middle of winter, and we might receive an inch or two of snow overnight…but any time is a good time to think about tasty ice cream on a summer day. These cones (orange creamsicle and black raspberry with fudge bits) did not last very long as Heather and I made quick work of the cool treats. We got them at Nagle’s Apothecary Cafe (in the background) in the town of Ocean Grove, NJ, and we would definitely be sure to stop by again the next time we’re in town!
Oh cinnamon-y goodness that is a snickerdoodle, how I enjoy thee.
These snickerdoodles that Heather made this past Christmas were of course delicious, and I am longing right now for a couple of these…
The Start of Something Delicious
My mom’s cinnamon rolls are, and have always been, the best ever. Raisins or not (choose from the left or right side of the dish!), they are just the right consistency, have just the right amount of nuttiness and cinnamonniness, and are of course topped with a glaze that is just the right sweetness. This is a before shot from one particular Easter batch, and I think they even look tasty in this form!
