Welcome to Eggs on Sunday! Thanks for stopping by!
A little bit about me and my cooking philosophy, in a nutshell: I believe in cooking with whole, natural and organic ingredients, celebrating seasonal foods, and supporting local farmers by using local ingredients whenever I can. I’m not “officially” vegetarian, but I try to choose meat, dairy and eggs from animals that I can trust have been cared for, raised and processed humanely. I love to garden — the process of growing your own food is immensely rewarding and fun. I believe in taking time to enjoy food, and in relishing the joys of delicious food! As much as I love the pleasures of eating, I also love the process of cooking: chopping, slicing, stirring, sauteing, caring for the ingredients. I love learning new things — new methods of preparation, discovering new ingredients, the science behind why certain things happen in the kitchen.
In addition to writing this blog, I also write the Seasonal Cooking column for Edible Finger Lakes magazine.
On the photography you see on the blog: many people have emailed me and asked me what kind of camera I use. I shoot with a Canon SD750, which is a point-and-shoot. It’s not a particularly expensive or super-fancy camera, but it’s a solid model, it’s very portable, and I’ve been very happy with it so far. I don’t have any special photography setups, just try to use natural light when I can. For me, taking pictures is a constant learning process, and I like to really “notice” the food and what things about it seem pretty, interesting, or unique about it to me. Taking the time to look lovingly at your food can sometimes go a long way into getting a good picture.
