For better or worse, the state of the economy is such that there are amazingly talented people who have time on their hands, so my pals photog Steve Aja and Susan Eslick came over to do a one-day photo shoot of recipes from The Frugal Foodie Cookbook
I cooked 15 recipes in 2 HOT days, and was amazed at how good Susan and Steve made everything look. And, I learned a few food styling tricks as well, such as 7-up + coffee + salt makes perfect "champagne"
Where you or I may see a funky, faded swing, Steve saw a perfect place to pose a serving of Tout Le Fruit Crisp and a cup of coffee
The lovely and talented Ms. Susan Eslick
The results from the shoot will be posted soon - and they are beautiful!
