Use your Imagination

As a very young girl, I thought the concept of a pictureless book sounded terribly boring. Once I learned how to read, I obviously discovered this wasn’t true; anyone who’s ever created elaborate characters in his/her head, only to be disappointed by a book-turned-movie, knows the incredible power of imagination.

However, when it comes to cookbooks, I’d still rather see photos.

(Once again, the pictures are actually links.)

My goal is to one day have a photo for every recipe on my recipe page. But in the meantime, I set up a Pinterest board for the recipes:

The board can be found here: My Recipes in Pictures.

Question of the Day:
Are you ever disappointed by movie versions of your favorite books?

Or are you ever upset when you imagined a character differently than the movie portrays? I think, as a rule, books are better than movies. The Da Vinci Code, Memoirs of a Geisha, White Oleander… Oh, and one of my absolute-favorite books: Gone with the Wind. They left so much out of the movie version! What happened to Scarlett’s son?!

Luckily, I think the Harry Potter movies got better as they went along. But still, I remember being so disappointed—initially—when the characters were different from how I’d imagined them. How dare they! Winking smile

Also, do y’all have a Pinterest page? Right now, I only have the board of my recipes. I’ve restrained myself from making another board; the whole idea seems very dangerous. I could waste hours on that site! (If you do have a board, and you want me to follow it, just let me know. I’d be happy to follow anyone wishing for another follower.)

    Movies can never beat books. When I see a move that was inspired by a book, I try to see it as a movie and not as the book, because there would be too many discrepancies! I am going to try and get a pinterest! 😀

    You know, I really hope you get your own cookbook deal. That would be so awesome and I’m sure you’d enjoy it immensely!

    Your food photography skills are amazing! I’m the same way with recipes-I need to see the photo. I know its a space thing, but I wish more cookbooks offered photos of everything.

    I agree with you on Gone with the Wind-so much is left out (though I guess a son could complicate things?) 101 dalmations is a big one for me. In the original perdita is a stray dog and Missus is Pongos wife. Hm.

    I’m very surprised that most of the people who commented on Harry Potter agreed with you! I can’t stand the Harry Potter films! The first two are pretty good, the third is good if you think of it as a movie in its own right (as Harry Potter, it’s awful), and all subsequent movies not only horrifically fail at portraying the story but are horrible movies period. They’re painful for me to watch because they’re boring, they don’t explain things well, and worst of all the lines the characters have to say are just so AWKWARD! I feel so embarrassed for the actors when I watch it! That’s another thing: when I watch it, I’m very aware of the fact that I’m watching a movie. That’s really bad.

    Are you telling the truth when you say that you like them?!
