1) Congratulations on 1 year of blogging Krista! That’s fantastic!
2) Isn’t it crazy how much we learn about food photography in such a short amount of time?! It’s such a fun and rewarding journey. I love looking back and my beginning photos because, well, it shows me how much I’ve improved. Bravo to you!
3) I want this tomato-basil soup right now. It’s perfect on a cold, winter, snowy day like today!
4) I usually use cream in my tomato-basil soup, but totally LOVE this idea of using cream cheese! SO creative!
For this Christmas Season, my family and I made 12 batches of this cake over three nights. My daughter Samantha and I put on our Santa hats and delivered them in loaf pans to friends and family, while they were still warm. We are still hearing of how much my friends enjoyed this cake. My mother made a cake like this when I was a young girl and nothing smells more like Christmas than this cake does. Now I have to write down the names of all those friends I gave them to, as they have already let me know they are looking forward to receiving them next Christmas. It will be our pleasure to bake it for them again. By the way, we made 25 loaves of various sizes.
