I’m back….after a few months off the blogging circuit I’m finally back with renewed excitement and rearing to go in the creativity department. Where have I been for the past few months you ask? I have been photographing a recipe book for a great friend/author Dr Karen S Lee who has written a book for Paleo in the Air Fryer which will be released in October by Page Street Publishers. Her book is very good and she’s been working on it for a long time now. She was worried that she wouldn’t be able to get her first book published, just in case it wasn’t good enough. However, this publisher seemed to really like the book. This took some worry off her, however, if they didn’t like it, she was just going to look into some different self publishing companies to see if she could get her book released that way. Either way, this book was going to be released. She put so much time into this book, so, hopefully, people will love it. It was a fantastic experience along with hard work as I was shopping, cooking, styling, photographing, and editing. I felt like I was re-shooting the movie Julie and Julia and much like the end of the movie I have come away with so much more than I expected. I learned so much and my knowledge for cooking has compounded because there were many ingredients that I had never worked with before either out of choice or ignorance.
So, onto the loaf cake….made up really easily by blending the wet ingredients with the mint then stirring them into the dry ingredients – really it could not get any easier then that! Either make a topping of cream cheese, coconut yogurt or whipped coconut cream. The other option it make a drizzle with a combination of maple syrup and lime juice, pierce the cake with a toothpick after it comes out of the oven and drizzle away.
In celebration of my heard work, I had a slice for breakfast this morning – YASS!!
