Maple-Mustard Seed Salmon with Herb Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

We're going to see a show tonight, so I promised I'd cook and have dinner ready in time for us to meet our friends. The squash was just sauteed and the potatoes were roasted with fresh rosemary, thyme, and for a little something different, lavender salt.

I love this pan. I bought a few in Spain several years ago. This particular one was only 3 Euros, (while not such a good deal now, the exchange rate was a little better then). I would have bought them in all sizes, but I would have had a little trouble carrying my suitcase.

Going underground for photos

For over a year I had a food blog on a major metropolitan newspaper. I had a lot of readers (even a few I didn't know in real life), but due to a lot of other things going on in my life, it started to become a chore. Besides, new food blogs crop up every day. I'm never going to be famous like Clotilde Dusoulier.

When I look back at it, the thing I notice most is how crappy my pictures were. In many cases they did not entice me to want to make them again. I cook every day, so I figured I'd start practicing better food photography. I probably wont bother with posting recipes though, because that's just too much trouble.
