Pretty Food

I can’t help myself. My name is Kelli and I’m a food photography addict.

{Hi, Kelli.}

A few shots from Thanksgiving break:

Flying Star

Start with some huevos rancheros

Flying Star

Add a dash of salt… and then decide what’s for dinner.

How about we fry a turkey for Thanksgiving? What sounds better? What? TWO turkeys? So be it:

What is that you say? You didn’t get enough carbs yesterday? Well. How about I whip up some of Juliann’s famous risotto, with some asparagus and shallots? (Originally, I’d hoped to do this with homemade turkey stock. Come to find out fried turkey bones meet their match in peanut oil and aren’t broth-worthy.)

I may not love football, or Black Friday, or many of the other “traditions” around this holiday. But put me in a kitchen with a pantry full of food, with an apron and a glass of chardonnay, and I am my happiest.

Phew. Aren’t we glad I got that out of my system? Yeah. I thought so.

  1. And now I’m ravenous. Won’t you bring me some of those huevos slathered in extra green chile with a side of risotto? Also, glad you love the risotto recipe!

  2. You’ve been asked to leave your camera at home? NEVER DO THIS.

    I love your food photos.

    And I’m suffocatingly jealous of your fried turkey. I haven’t ever had this and it looks so EFFING GOOD.
