Incidentally gluten-free, I just found this recipe which I’m itching to make vegan and refined sugar-free as well. Halwa has been tried before, resulting in strange pastes and innovative cookies, and this one seems worth adding to the line-up. How could it not be delicious?

I’ve been a-noticing something with this new food-ogling blog plan of mine: a vast majority of the most succulent and delectable looking photographs of food on the internet are of desserts. I don’t think it’s just a subconscious tendency because of my adoration of desserts, since I love fresh vegetables even more. Like here’s a lovely non-dessert shot:

But wait! Those nuts are on their way into a Chocolate Pistachio Cake from use real butter, and I won’t complain for an instant. Girl takes great pictures and I bet her food tastes like it looks.

I don’t think this dessert swarm is just my subconscious tendency to click certain key places because of my adoration of desserts, since I love fresh vegetables even more. It might be partially because the luscious savory shots usually feature meat, and since I can’t imagine eating it the foodie impact is missing for me. I maybe never noticed the over-prevalence of dessert shots before because I mostly lurk around on 101cookbooks, with it’s balanced and healthy visual nourishment. I’ll tell you what, though, internet: it’s on. I’m going to find the most outrageously sumptuous veggie photography you’ve got floating around out there, and I’m going to post it here, so I can look at it again.

So, chocolate on my mind and beautiful images on the internet, I found this amazing photographer whose name is Lara Hata. I definitely found some lush chocolate shots, but her dessert pictures just aren’t as arresting as the pictures of tomatoes. Well, there are my real loyalties. Check them here, and in the food section too. That category definitely outshone the others for me overall – maybe because today I ate the first ripe cherry tomato from my garden?

Since I started out with chocolate,

Alright, it seemed like a good idea 20 minutes ago and it still does, so I’m going to make a blog of the food I’m pondering at any given moment. I’ve got some food curiosity at least once a day, so it could be a fast-moving collection… and it’s probably a better way of keeping track of things I’d like to remember than pasting the link into an e-mail draft that I never send. That’s pretty roundabout. What right now? The 101cookbooks post from this morning (I think) that had a flipped-over version of a fruit dessert she posted a couple days ago, along with an insinuation that the fillings are overflowings from the orchards tucked in some mysterious neighborhood in my same city. That’s pretty maddening. I wonder if there’s some way to get images from other sites straight in here, instead of just the link?
