*shot out of a canon.

Guess what! I got a camera for Christmas!

Guess what! It has a digital macro setting!

Guess what! I can't stop taking close-ups of random subjects!

Guess what! You can click on each image for more detail!

Bottega tiramisu, a la Frank Stitt.

Italian meat.

Incarcerated potatoes.

Pepper jelly: a Southern delight.

Thick, briny goat cheese, pepper jelly's bosom buddy.

Tiny, sticky pecan pies with flaky crusts and a proud sheen.

JB's frittata, expertly whipped full of air and studded with corn and tomatoes.


Lime-dusted chip.

P.S. I'm being held captive by exclamation points. Please alert the grammar police. If help doesn't come soon, I'll be forced to write soap-opera-style syndicated comic strips.

I am a work in progress. I perpetually need a hair cut. I'm totally devoted to my remarkable nieces and nephew. I am an elementary home cook and a magazine worker bee. (Please criticize my syntax and spelling in the comments.) I think my dog is hilarious. I like chicken and spicy things. I have difficulty being a grown-up. Left to my own devices, I will eat enormous amounts of cheese snacks of all kinds.
