Looking at this makes me want to start baking, and let me tell you, the kitchen and I do not have a happy relationship. These images where taken by the talented photographer Carl Kleiner. The whole concept behind these images is to take normal everyday ingredients that we find in our kitchen and turn them into something extraordinary. I never imaged that eggs and sugar could look so good, and the perfection in these images is ...

This website made me want to eat my computer screen. Its called Annie’s Eats and its run by, well you guessed it, Annie. She started the blog in 2007 and has since then found a large following with good reason. Her site has everything you could need for both baking and cooking enthusiasts and the photographs are mouth-wateringly good. The whole layout is beautifully done with the refreshing yellow polkadot background, and the neatly organized categories. It ...

I came across this site a few months back when I was trying to find a gift for my cousin who adores cooking and baking. The site is for Charles Frandin products and they have so many cute items that would be perfect for seasoned chefs and aspiring ones alike. The products range from totes and stationaries, to recipe boxes and frames. The items aren’t cheap, but I think they are worth it for ...

Here’s a very creative stop-motion of a music video for a song called “Chocolate” and what better way to make it than actual food? Though like i mentioned before, I’m not a fan of playing with food, I don’t think the food was thrown away, it looks too tasty to waste. Anyway, the song is by a Mexican sibling duo called Jesse & Joy’s and it was directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada. The video contains a lot of baked ...

This Haagen Dazs commercial made me melt! I love how the ad feels so genuine and pure. Instead of using a skinny model who probably doesn’t know what ice cream looks like, they focused on the essentials of the product and the freshness of the ingredients. The poetry thats in this ad is really well though out. It not only showcases the freshness of their ingredients and their attention to quality, but it does it in ...

I love it when photographers think of things in a different way, like using photography to expose new dimensions and at the same time raise questions. This project called “You are What you Eat” is a clever approach by Mark Menjivar where he for three years travelled the world to capture a shot of refrigerators. Basically, he meets with different people from different backgrounds and with different professions, then goes and snaps a photo of their ...

I’ll have to be very honest here, I do not like playing with food, especially when others are dying of hunger. This project is an artistic phenomenon, created for Magnum ice-cream and as the name implies, it is explosive. The ice-cream is known to have liquid-y ingredients inside and since the name is Magnum, the creative agency behind it decided to explode the ice-cream and that is exactly what they have done. They placed mini ...

I found this lovely recipe at Authentic Suburban Gourmet. I loved the site because its full of home made goodness and the photographs really get you into the cooking/baking mood. There are so many good recepies on the site everything from Sugar Snap Pea Salad, to Rhubarb Crumb Cake (which looks so good). The best part is that the recipes are so original and there are so many healthy choices to really help you get in the ...

Cake Boss, (featuring Buddy Valastro), is one of my favorite shows I just love watching them make all the amazing designs that made them so famous and with good reason. So when I found out that they made a transformers cake (Im a huge transformers geek), I was totally trilled. The best part is that its based on my favorite character BUMBLEBEE! The cake looks so real and the fact that its made of 2,000 ...

I know the idea doesn’t sound that tasty but these are cookies with the looks of fried chicken minus the actual chicken. Such an idea came about to Bridget, the creator of this recipe suggesting that chicken is man’s favorite food and by making a cookie that looks like a chicken it will be interesting to men. I’m not really sure about this suggestion, guys looooove cookies and this ones looks good too. If you are ...

This is one big bundle of happiness wrapped into a cute little box with a pink polka dot ribbon. Ahem, if your wondering why Im suddenly so “froofy” (I just made that word up roll with it), well thats because I happen to have a soft spot for weddings which I already explained in my previous wedding post. Ok so this isn’t an actual wedding, its a joint collaboration between a lot of different ...

Angie Dudley (a.k.a Bakerella) is a baking guru. She first got hooked when she took an introductory baking class and she’s been addicted ever since. I love her site not only for the baking tips but also the beautiful photography and step by step guides that really walk you through the process. An interesting fact about Bakerella is that she’s the genius behind Cake Pops (the fusion of cakes and lollipops) that have ...

Cooking is not my thing and watching cooking videos isn’t either but this one is quite different. Besides the fact that Green loves beets and Beats headphones, this video is the best cooking video I have ever seen in terms of visual presentation. Unlike most cooking programs, this video is shot by artists making you watch through the whole thing and frankly they intrigue you to bake! The creators ” tiger in a jar” suggest ...

I came across the work of this amazing artist that goes by the name Silent Sketcher (Andrew Shirey). While silent, this collection of his new work is just hard to hide as he brings something we all know and turn it to something extraordinary. The Fast Food Mafia is Andrew’s latest illustration containing a group of characters of famous characters from fast food chains, the idea is to make them all look as a gang ...

I love weddings everything about them turns me into a little girl again listening to fairy tales waiting for the knight in shining armor to ride in and save the princess then get married and live happily ever after. Fast forward to 2011, and I still have a fascination with weddings. I love what they represent and the pure joy that seems to radiate from the bride and groom its just one of those ...

Elegance meets just plain weird, thats the best way I know to describe this restaurant. Basically it has one section that looks like something from a 70s James Bond movie, and another section that looks like it could be a horror movie called “Attack of the Tiny Wooden Sticks”. The restaurant is located in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, and is designed by Sergey Makhno and Vasily Butenko who are known for their out of ...
