I've been craving a sugary butter cookie for days so today I finally made Zuckerkager (Danish Sugar Drops) from The Great Scandinavian Baking Book by Beatrice Ojakangas. The cookies turned out thin and crisp and very sugary (in a good way) and I'm trying to not eat the whole batch in one sitting.
While I was baking I discovered the manual functions on my Canon PowerShot (and I almost let the first batch of cookies burn). Here's the same photo but in sepia tone (yeah, it doesn't take much to excite me):
These pictures aren't staged. I'm not into perfection (or twee-ness) but reality, even if there are some ugly elements, such as the black cord and the box of mac and cheese in the background. However, I do try to make the picture somewhat interesting......
Nancy Drew collection (yup, I've got 'em all).
"Jesus Pansies." (they came back to life after appearing dead for several days).
My 3-year-old took this picture. Not bad, eh?
