If a picture paints a thousand words

This blog is a place for me to work on my photography. My goal is to submit a new picture every day and to get better as the moments go by. I take all pictures with my digital camera. I worked for years with a 35 mm minolta, and this is a learning experience for me. I am afraid that I got lazy and allowed the camera to choose most of the settings for me. This is my journey of learning how to shoot a camera that is not in a program mode. It is harder than I ever imagined. That makes this challenge both a new experience and a joy for me.

Delicious Goodness - Day 192

Some wonderful friends of ours introduced or family to the wonderful world of Ebelskivers.  These round pancakes have become a family favorite.  All the girls love them and we make them nearly every weekend.  You can eat them with syrup, powdered sugar, cinnamon, honey, or even jelly.  The jelly is our favorite and the girls love to try different kinds.  This week, they were especially fond of the berry jams that we made last year.   

The batter is very similar to pancake batter

The pan is cast iron and has all these round holes in it to cook the ebelskivers. 

We use wooden skewers to turn them over so that they cook all the way through.  

My husband makes these and he wanted a better picture than the first one!

Oh, we do love them.  

And my girls can never seem to get enough.  

One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.  ~Luciano Pavarotti and William Wright, Pavarotti, My Own Story


  1. Do you place jams in the middle, so they are filled?

  2. Ohhh, those look really good...they remind me of Elephant ears at the fair. I think I'd like them with powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar...ummmm!

  3. Love the quote on eating and the last photo! Yum.

  4. ooohhh they sound and look absolutely delicious!

  5. These are really wonderful. You can use a piece of fruit in the middle (apples or berries work best) but we use jam on them after they are already made. They are very tasty with powdered sugar and cinnamon. The girls love them for dinner or breakfast, you can even put cheese and chicken in them, although the batter is slightly different. Overall, we love them and they are something different that we can't get anywhere else.

  6. These photos are so fun and it looks YUM!!
