I know, I know; this is an unusual time of year to be talking about strawberries. But something about these candied strawberries reminded me of Valentine’s day, so that’s my excuse.  I’m looking forward to making them in the summer when strawberries are at their prime.


As I have mentioned previously, I try to challenge myself to do something new in each post. This time I wanted to try using only artificial light and dabble in some high speed photography. This was the result. I love playing around with new lighting setups. =)

The recipe for candied strawberries can be found on The Secret Life of a Chef’s Wife. These are gorgeous, tasty, and surprisingly simple to make.

Oh, and here is a picture of Marshall trying his best to hunt pigeons from the windowsill.
