Healthy Chocolate Doughnuts

In an attempt to not let social media completely overtake my life, I’ve shied away from opening an Insta-gram account. And I don’t often post snapshot photos because showing you pictures without a recipe feels like teasing.

Still, at the same time, part of me thinks it would be fun to post un-edited pictures of things I’ve been eating, recipes going in the cookbook (like these doughnuts), or recipes in the works that aren’t perfected yet.

So I’m looking for honest feedback: would you be interested in seeing “in the works” recipe snapshots from time to time (maybe on a separate page like this one), or would you view that as too much of a tease? All constructive feedback is appreciated, no matter your stance.

    I am ALWAYS interested in seeing photos of food – recipes or not. However, I do hope we will eventually be graced with some recipes that will match up the wonderful photos. Great job!

    Actually I’d like to see a video of you coming up with a new recipe…from start to finish, how many batches of things do you go through before you finalize it? Do you make “Single serving” sizes and then just multiply the ingredients so as to waste as little as possible during the trial phase? I’d LOVE to know how you get ideas for certain ingredients, such as the cream of tartar spice in the sugar cookie milkshake. And until you create this video, yes, photos, photos and more photos…no one ever minded a good tease.

    1. I need to get a video camera! Making videos is something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile, but I keep putting it off for lack of time.

      And yes, that’s exactly why so many of my recipes are small servings… I don’t want to waste ingredients when I don’t know if the recipe will turn out well. :)

        The new Canon Rebel (which is I think what you use) has video-taking capabilities! In case you need to replace your camera anytime soon. Meanwhile the FLIP cameras are cool, and you can get those neat tripods that attached to anything…even wine bottles. Good luck! Don’t worry, we won’t worry about the video-making quality. ha ha (PS If you have a Mac the video-editing software that comes with it–iVideo–is really easy to use! I took a one-hour one-on-one class at my local apple store and inside that hour learned and created an entire video.)

    Oh, yes I love to see what you are trying out. I might keep them on a separate page for those who would feel it was a waste of their limited time. Of course seeing pictures without the recipes does make me very hungry…

    1. I would probably also want to keep them on a separate page because usually the unedited “in process” photos aren’t as pretty as ones that have been brightened and sharpened (and then brightened some more… I live in a dark cave!).

  17. how about if you develop a “drive thru window” where we can sample the treats you make?

    Oh, that’s not possible with a computer?

    gosh-darn-it!!!

    I’ll settle for pics :)

    Happy Creating!
