Curry and Comfort's Weekly Sunday Summary 10/15/12 thru 10/21/12

Yum

 Hello Everyone,
I had an extra special week with my family this past week.  My daughter celebrated her birthday, we had a field trip to a pumpkin farm and loads of celebration dinners.  I also made my first pumpkin recipe of the month (finally)!  So now the pressure is off (a little).  I still promised a pumpkin-fest month full of pumpkin loving recipes so I have to get my pumpkin recipes in order to wow you this week (I hope).
 
 I also created two fun microwave recipes in a mug this week.  I think I will be experimenting more with my microwave... you know how I love to experiment.  Heck, the fact that I had a homemade chocolate cake in less than 3 minutes in the microwave makes me think.... this can be life changing and bit dangerous too. 

National Pasta Day was also celebrated this past week and I was thrilled to be asked by Classico Pasta Sauce to contribute a recipe.  I think I have fallen in love with using anchovies to flavor pasta sauces and vegetables.  I never knew how deep and flavorful anchovies could be once they are melted down in some olive oil.  So keep a look out for more recipes in the future with anchovies too. 

I ended the week with a really comforting and protein packed soup when I cooked up my Southwestern Three Bean Soup.  I see more comforting soups in my future since I finally see the weather starting to cool down and the cooler side of fall settling in before winter. The leaves are magnificently changing color around my area and I wish I carried my camera around everywhere to capture the beauty I see around me.  All I can do is to try to soak in and cherish every majestic hue of color that Mother Nature has painted.  I would not give up the beauty of fall for anything (even if winter is looming around the corner). 
Okay... now off for our weekly recipe countdown:

  2. Hi Ramona. I am coming over here to answer the questions that you left on my blog. I thought that if I answered the questions here, then you'd be sure to see them.

    I shoot in JPEG. I haven't tried RAW yet, but I ought to try my hand at working with it. I'm a chicken at heart and a very slow learner. As for the photo editing program, I use Adobe Photoshop Elements. It is not as sophisticated as Photoshop and doesn't cost nearly as much. A lot of people use Photoshop and obviously get spectacular results. So far, Photoshop Elements has met my most essential needs for photo editing. I haven't quite outgrown it yet.

    As for lighting, I try to photograph near a window to get natural lighting. I almost always photograph indoors because the weather where I live is not very conducive to good pics. It is frequently windy, for one thing. Indoors, I have a lot more control over food set-up and placement. Additionally, the food stays looking good longer than it would outdoors. I take tons of pics, too, so that I will have a good selection from which to choose. It is always surprising to me to see how different the pics can look from each other when I have essentially taken several from the same position. A lot of people use a tripod, but I like to hold my own camera. I am totally unprofessional! ha!

    And lastly...feedburner. I have tried and tried to figure out why they won't send out my posts any more. When I check out the reason for why it is no longer working on my blog, kit ways something about the feed being too long. I've looked up the "fixes" and the information is way over my head. I don't have a clue what they are talking about. The biggest thing I don't understand is why I have so many problems with Blogger and now Feedburner. I have been an increasing number of people who are having problems with various elements of my blog. I am in the process of trying to move everything over to a Wordpress site...THAT'S a challenge!

    Do you ever have any problems with Blogger? They will even take some of my "Printable Recipe" links and change them to route to signing up for a Blogger blog instead of leading the person to a printable recipe. It is so discouraging. I am having to frequently go through my blog to make sure that the "Printable Recipe" links are still working.

    Anyway, thanks again for your support. Congratulations on getting your new camera. What kind did you get? Your pics are looking so beautiful.
