La Petite Maison Verte: Coming Soon

Coming Soon

I know, I know, I've been a little scarce with the blog posts lately.

It's not that I don't WANT to write!  It's not that I am not eating delicious, healthy (and some not-so-healthy) foods, and thinking wonderfully fascinating things and wanting to share these things with you!

It's because I am suuuuuper frustrated with how my pictures are coming out.  As fall is settling in and the daylight is waning I'm having to shoot photos with the flash and with the house lights ON which leads to SUCH awful photos.  Don't pretend you haven't noticed....

And at the same time, while I LOVE our house here in Tampa, I have a love/hate relationship with the great old oak trees in our yard (and our neighbors' yards).  They provide such lovely shade in the summer and lend such a classic curb appeal to our neighborhood.  BUT they are dropping acorns like nobody's business (such a mess to clean up) and keep our house in the shade for most of the day.  That, combined with the early setting of the sun means I have very little natural light with which to take my photos these days. And so I have been loathe to take pictures and loathe to post recipes WITHOUT pictures (because let's admit it, we eat first with our eyes, right?)

Anyhow, I DO have a recipe to share with you and if you check back tomorrow you shall find Dorie Greenspan's favorite pecan pie WITH pictures AND a recipe...aren't you lucky?

Any suggestions for indoor photography during these fall and winter months?!  I'd be most appreciative!

I totally know what you're talking about. Can't wait to see the new recipe. I mean cook it! ;) Maybe you need to get a tripod and try a slower setting? Try googling "food photography" for instructional videos & how-to's.
