recipe from culinary arts

Pound cake refers to a type of cake traditionally made with a pound of each of four ingredients: flour, butter, eggs, and sugar.  It is believed that the pound cake is a Northern European dish, that dates back to the early 1700s. And over the years recipes have changed and many styles of pound cakes can be found. This recipe is pretty traditional and reminds me of the classic recipe I grew up with.  The blueberry Jam is another story that I will hopefully be able to share with you soon. A friend of mine makes this Jam and will have it available.  The idea is the classic pound cake with creative toppings, pound cake is an open palette.

Orange Marmalade

I am normally not a marmalade fan, but when Doug gave me a jar of homemade orange marmalade that all changed.  The first spoon full had chunks of oranges and rind pieces all mixed together. The first bite was packed with a big orange flavor. It had a sweet and bitter combination of the crunchy rinds. I pondered what can I use this with, my first try was some shortbread cookies, delicious. My next experiment my be something savory like some orange marmalade on a grilled chicken breast- sounds pretty good.  The marmalade was so beautiful glistening in the sun, I had to grab my camera and set a few pictures. I didn’t know orange marmalade could be so inspirational.Seeing Orange…this was a series of images I shot for a client
