Forgive me father for I have sinned




























Forgive me father for I have sinned. Not only have I further indulged my shameful obsession with food porn http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Food_porn) by subscribing to the Tartlette and Living in the Kitchen with Puppies blogs, I have also begun to photograph my own baking exploits. Now let me be VERY clear, I take amateurish pictures of the clumsy, ham-fisted little cakes and cookies that I bake for fun. The Tartlette blog is resplendent with stunningly beautiful and exotic baked goods created and photographed by a professional food stylist and baker. I assure you, the photographs on Tartlette are nothing short of exquisite. My pedestrian little entry above was the created from this month's award winning recipe in BH&G. They were Cream Soda Toffee Cupcakes with a Brown Butter Butter cream. They were tasty little nuggets to be sure. Beautiful and exotic? Not so much.

To add to my mounting pile of shame, I also made the gross misstep of having a couple of glasses of Absinthe at my poker gathering this weekend. Let me be the first to say that this is not something that you should ever have "a couple of glasses" of. I can officially say "Been there. Done that. Bought the tee shirt. (and, sadly) Have the vacation photos." God love Dave, happy little snapper that he is, he was kind enough to capture the moment in photos. Some of my friends have begged me to burn the evidence and for all of our sakes I am inclined to comply. I don't know what genius thought it was a good idea to lobby for the recent legalization of this stuff, but I am a strong supporter of deporting it back to France or Belgium or whatever rotten little wormwood tree it crawled out of.
Lesson learned.
Shame owned.
Moving on. . .
