Welcome to La Cerise!

"La cerise sur le gâteau."

That's how my husband's grandmother referred to me, a newcomer to her family, during her speech at her 90th birthday party. I was flattered, even though it made me the butt of an uncle's jokes for the rest of the evening.

I am not sure where this blog will go. Probably a food-related blog. Possibly a photography blog. Both from a beginner's perspective. I've been reading a lot of food blogs, and we just bought a digital SLR (reflex) camera. I'd love to improve both my cooking (baking) and my photography skills.

I'll start with these first attempts at photographing my baking. These were taken with our point and shoot Canon Ixus something-or-other. My goal in future photographs will be taking non-blurry close-ups without flash...
