The Big Debut…. New Page, New Camera, Revised Recipe

My first official post on the new website. Woo hoo! I’ve given up a lot of hours of sleep the past week and a half. Hopefully things will get easier as I figure out how all this works.

After my impulse camera purchase the other day, I thought it was only fitting to take some pictures around the house this morning and redo my first recipe I posted on here with better pictures. Smile

Here’s who we found.

Turk and Kitty. (Our other cat, Nala, was hiding.)

Um, good morning boys. No smiles today? Oh well.

Now for breakfast. I had some strawberries left over from Easter so I decided to make…….

Amazing Straw-nana Cereal Cake

Aren’t these pictures with the new camera so much better?

I forgot to mention in my original post of this recipe that this WHOLE cake (and it’s pretty darn big) is about 360 calories. I am ALL about large portions for the least amount of calories (I can’t help it, I’m a big eater).

Here’s the recipe again. Get ready to enjoy some warm, fruity, gooey goodness. Smile

  • 3/4 cup  crushed cereal ( I’ve used Puffin Puffs Fruit Medley and Kashi Honey Sunshine- Puffin Puffs Fruit Medley is ROCKS in this!)
  • 1 banana (sliced)
  • 3-4 strawberries (sliced)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk  (4 tablespoons separated)
  • cinnamon (to taste)
  • 1 splenda packet
  • 2-3 tablespoons of multigrain pancake mix (Trader Joe’s has the best one EVER)

Combine 2 tablespoons of almond milk, pancake mix, cinnamon and splenda. Then add the sliced banana and strawberries. Make sure all the fruit pieces are covered with the pancake mix. Place the mixture in a ramekin sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine the crushed cereal and the other 2 tablespoons of the almond milk. Put on top of fruit mixture in ramekin. Cover with foil and bake at 400 for 25 minutes. Uncover and broil for about 3 minutes.

Fabulous! Here’s my presentation. Too bad by the time I got it all ready I had about 10 minutes before we had to be out the door for Strollerwise class at the park. Oops.

    Awesome! To get good pics like what you’ve been taking, you want to use AV (aperture mode) or all manual. You’ve been doing great so far you just need to set your WB (white balance)

    Dumb phone… ok. So you need to change your WB constantly for diff lighting situations. Your indoor shots look yellow because you might have the WB on Auto…change it to one of the lightbulb looking options (tungsten or florescent) and when you are outside, to sun or shade, etc. That’s the secret to getting good color SOOC (straight out of camera). Don’t worry, its easy! Flight of the fingers and voila.

    I meant flick! He he. Its early and my smart phone is more dumb than smart. Ha! Other than that keep up the good work! If you want easy, fun, digital photo help your man is Scott Kelby. Buy one or more of his books! He is the best and really hilarious. And for editing I would suggest Light Room….its affordable (fraction of photoshop cost) and faster than PS. A lot of photogs use it!
    And you might want a better lens in the future? For food I know pioneer woman likes the 35mm

    For every pics of paople, aka the boys, the 50mm. If you don’t want to deal with changing lenses and don’t mind that zooms are slower, the best everyday zoom is the 24-70mm (I have the tamron version because the cannon was too spendy when I purchased)…. good luck! You are awesome and I’m so excited you are doing this! Are you doing adds on your page in hopes of getting paid? Or is it just for fun?
