The Year (2011) in Review

Let's look back over the stuff Lucy and I have cooked, baked, eaten, and photographed. I'm well aware that people usually do these types of posts at the end of December or at the beginning of the new year. *Shrug* All of the links in this page will take you to the corresponding article written, should you choose to click on them and read more. But first, some stats that don't mean much.

Favourite eats (in no particular order):

Before I end the page with some of my favourite photos of food, I'd like to list some things that I'd like to improve upon over the next year:

  • Capture stronger food images
  • Life needs to be injected into the stuff I write
  • Write sooner so that I'll remember more details
  • Take notes when I can
  • Take more photos of food that have less red, orange, and yellow in the frame
