Food, Fun and Flowers







Master T made this "Impossible" Coconut Pie (without the almonds) as a contribution to McChef Magazine. This is the second time he has made this recipe, the first baking disappeared too quickly to be photographed. It was very delicious and easy to make, however I have requested no more sweet foods, time to choose some new healthy main meals.



















Glimpses of the last few days at our place......
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Master T didn't know where to start with presentation and had to go off to hockey training so I stepped in to "plate up". Was quite fun, so was the eating afterwards!

Śliczne kwiatki rosną u Was zimą. Ciastko smakowicie wygląda. Dzieci maja sporo zabawy skacząc wszystkie przez skakankę. Urocze zdjęcia z ich wyczynów. Pozdrawiam.
Beautiful flowers you grow in the winter. The cake looks delicious. Children have a lot of fun all by jumping rope. Cute pictures of their exploits. Yours.

Lovely photos! I'm considering purchasing the Raynox macro lens you posted about a while back. Another blogger purchased it and raves about it also.

I really like the simplicity and composition of the pie shots. Makes me truly what to eat it!

Looks like a fun and beautiful few days you've had!

Perfect plating of the coconut pie ... and beautifully presented ... Good enough to eat!
Last night I made the Masterchef Tarte Tatin ... It was delish.

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

Mercy, that pie looks outstanding! I love coconut pie but have not had any in years. This makes me want some in the worst kind of way.

There you go posting pictures of GOD's beauty. You do capture it so well in that flower.

I remember playing jump rope, those were good times when kids got out and played hard.

rainfield61 said...

looking t the kids makes me feeling so "young".

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

How fun!! Love these shots. I also love coconut and that pie looks delicious and almost too pretty to eat... almost! ;)

Mark said...

Hi Karen, to find the woolshed I blogged about go to the post and at the very bottom there is a small section called location. If you click on this it will take you to a google map.
You would love to shoot Gostwyck in the autumn. put it into Google images...just amazing.
I love the cake as well, wish my kids could cook this for me!

Barb said...

Delicious photography! sweet photos of the children!

Doug Hickok said...

That's the way to do it! Looks like great fun all around!

Deborah said...

Birgitta said...

Great photography!

Stephanie said...

That's the prettiest looking pie ever. I bet it tasted even better.

el-mundo-en-colores said...

I'm going for the food! Yummy!

Gunilla said...

Amazing flower shots! The pie looks yummy too. I have a couple of vacation days left and then it's back to the gym and the healthy food for me.

Mad Mind said...

I love these photos! It looks like the kids were having a blast.

Madge Bloom said...

Wonderful series of shots... hard to pick just one! Thank you for sharing on WTS#41!

Sharyl said...

These are all so delightful! The flowers look beautiful, the food looks yummy, but the photos of the kids in action are just too good to be true!

Catherine said...

Miss 12 could make sweet things for the rest of her life I think;) She collects recipes for her own magazines and I think she may have only a couple of pages of savoury compared to books of sweet recipes. Love the photo of your children all skipping together:)

Gary said...

Great post!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

ladyfi said...

That first flower shot is amazing.

As for that pie - wow!

Paula said...

Amazing shots, each and every one. And, I love this explosion of color!

I love the 2nd photo. The contrast of the curves of the orange and the straight lines of the pie are great.
