uy Fawkes Night (AKA Bonfire night) in the UK is one of my favourite days of the year..mulled wine, roasted chestnuts, snuggling in wooly hats and eating hog roast rolls and apple sauce – mmmm …..alas I missed it this year as its not commonly celebrated in the States, however my husband surprised me with a few rocket fireworks and some mulled wine (ahhh)

I had also found a toffee apple in Giant so that made it a little more authentic for us, I’d snapped a few pics of it earlier in the day with some fall color leaves, just the one photo this time!

H appy Independence day!…this being my first in the states I decided i’d make the most of it and relax for the day. I wanted to have a play around with the hubbys 50mm lens so I grabbed next doors cute-AS baby bunnies, some of the mother in-laws china, a few flowers and hey presto! Think i’m getting the hang of it. Hope you’re all having a fun day too. Bye for now…..

I’ve been meaning to try out some food photography for a while now, and thought what better time to cook up some treats than Superbowl!

Many people will tell you to be wary of my cooking (especially when I get adventurous with cakes – its never a pleasant culinary experience – trust me!) ….. however I feel I’m slowly redeeming myself in the kitchen.

This morning I went ‘by the book’ and followed all the recipes precisely, and the results were YUMMY!

As this is our first Superbowl as residents of Virginia we rustled up some ¬†scrumptious ‘southern’ comfort food. Nathaniel made his amazingly delicious devilled eggs, and then cheesy meatloaf with fresh green beans and mash.

I took on dessert Рfruit topped pavlova and  warm pecan pie with creamy peach ice cream.

Heres a few pics of the goodies to make your mouth water!……
