Anticipating Christmas

posted by in Photo of the Day

Preparing for the holidays: a little peek into my Christmas life.

batidors
My collection of batidors, rustic little implements made of wood and used to whip tsokolate into a frenzied froth. Even after all these years, I’m largely a failure with them. But my, they look pretty.

tsokolate
I make hot tsokolate for my Bin today before he leaves for work. Here, the remainder of it caught in the morning light.

QdB
Fiddling with my studio light. Wedge of queso de bola caught in the crossfire.

baking-notes
My baking notes. Because I meticulously detail every single recipe I do.

spatulas
Spatulas I use when making my cheesecake. I get more requests for this dessert of mine at Christmas  than at any other time of the year.

  • LOVE how detailed your notes are! Care to share any tips? I think this will be a good post :) About recipe formulation. I make notes but not as detailed as yours.

    DIDI!
    Terrific to hear from you. Have you ordered my book yet? :p My baking notes have to be detailed lest I forget something. It’s also a good way to track which recipes I’ve already done. That’s a good idea, though, making a post about recipe formulation. Will mull it over.

    Gah! Not yet! I think I would like to get my copy in the PH and signed properly :) Hehehe!

    I’d love to get notes from you on how to note take during recipe formulation. My notes are just crap! Bullet points and not complete sentences. Haha! But it makes sense to write in complete sentences because sometimes those scribbles don’t make sense when I read them months post recipe formulation.

  • Lori, I am loving your photo essays and I love that you post them more regularly. Like a tiny taste of DCF every so often. Amuse bouche for the blog-o-philes. :)

    “Amuse bouche for the blog-o-philes” – I like that very much! What a novel way to describe it!

  • This is why you get blocked for being a “pornographic” website.

  • Your handwriting is so consistent, it could be a font on its own. I’ll call it “Lori” ;)

    Wow Angie, so nice of you to say. Thanks! My writing hasn’t changed since the 6th grade, so says my dad.
