I just realized I've posted on Loveology about LOTS of things.
But not, NO never(!) about FOOD!
Such a shame,
because isn't food one of the most beautiful
important things in life?
It's not only about the food,
well...okay, sometimes it is.
Don't you just love those gorgeous, pure ingredients?
To me, it's also about beauty. (Is it ever NOT?)
The beauty of the food itself.
The beauty of the decorated table you're having dinner at.
The good times you have while eating together with LOVERS and friends.
I have to be honest
and tell you that I rarely eat together with others.
And I miss it. Dearly.
I live on my own, that's why.
I've never been a great cook.
I mean, I CAN cook.
But really making something special out of it...
I just never took the time for that.
Since we've just entered a beautiful New Year,
I've decided to start COOKING.
And I mean REAL cooking.
Spending hours in the kitchen...
Trying all sorts of different recipes...
Inviting lots of friends and family to join me for dinner...
YAY! I am so excited about this!
My favorite course of dinner
has always been the desert.
So I'm planning to specialize in deserts...
when you're cooking beautiful food,
you need a beautiful table
and breathtaking decoration...
I am really into whites and pastels,
for calmness and serenity.
I also LOVE vintage, flowered cups and plates.
And, of course some beautiful, fresh flowers!
At the moment,
I am organizing an High Tea for family and friends.
It will take place at the 31st of January,
so expect pictures of my own creations by then!
I've already got two great books to start with!
The box with the two books on the right;
Happiness is a Cupcake is absolutely amazing!
The photography (by Paul Barbera) is STUNNING!
I'd LOVE to here about your favorite recipes!
What's your specialty,
and what do you recommend me to cook that I really have to taste?
