For this month’s photo assignment, Scott said that we should take some shots of food – not just take pictures of it, but try to show it in a way that would make us really want to eat what we see in the picture.  I had all sorts of grand ideas of fabulous photos that I’d take.  I like cooking from magazine recipes for variety and I follow several cooks or cooking blogs on Twitter for inspiration.  I have cooked some interesting looking recipes recently, and guess what?  I forgot to take pictures of it before I gobbled them up!  The light in my kitchen at dinner time this time of year isn’t overly flattering either.  But enough with the excuses!  So what did I take pictures of?  Well, there was those bread pics a couple weeks ago, which you can go have a look at in case you missed them.  For my pictures today I share Homemade Oreo Cookies!  Recipe and inspiration from Fine Cooking, whom I follow on Twitter.

Oreos need to be eaten with a glass of milk, right?

I wish I had more to show you!  I really planned to, but we get awfully hungry around here! 😉
