Family Reunion Baking
Happy Friday! We'll be meeting up with some of our extended family members this weekend and I have been doing some baking. One on the things that I made was rhubarb crisp. The photo at the top of this post is the rhubarb mixed with sugar, lemon zest, Cointreau (orange liqueur) and cornstarch. The colors are so pretty and I liked the texture as I mixed it up so I pulled out the camera to take a few photos. These will be great for digital backgrounds (I am still working on that recipe project!).
I like to take photos of recipes in progress and I am always thinking about images that will work as a page background. It only takes a few seconds to snap a couple of photos and then you will have lots of creative possibilities.
I also made some of our favorite black bottom cupcakes - chocolate cake with a cream cheese and chocolate chip mixture dropped in the center and baked. I have posted this recipe a couple of years ago HERE and I even did some recipe cards that you can see HERE. The Rhubarb Crisp recipe is from the Silver Palate Good Times cookbook, one of my favorite cookbooks.
I hope you have something fun planned for the weekend! We have our fingers crossed that there won't be rain for the picnic...
