Turning internet food pictures into your own food is the most glorious intersection of “I want that” + “I actually can have that if I drive to the grocery store and cook a bit”, unlike other internet browsing (Mmm…Tesela Model S…). Near immediate gratification is possible, if you have racked up enough kitchen dongles.
I was browsing Buzzfeed’s 31 Amazing Things to Cook in August and had insta-crave for the Tomato Lollipops.
So I had a dinner party.
Here are my imitations of other people’s fabulous recipes! Photographs by guest photographer Julie Miller-Hendry.
Recipe on White on Rice Couple’s blog here.
- Cuteness: 4/5
- Tastiness: 4/5
- Replicate-ability: 5/5
Verdict: So easy, so good, so many style points.
BBQ Sticky Asian Pork Ribs:
Recipe on Heather Cristo here.
- Cuteness: 5/5. Is there anything cuter then watching the faces of a gaggle of men eating ribs? No.
- Tastiness: 5/5
- Replicate-ability: 4/5. I used an oven 2.5 hrs at 300 F, then finished on the grill.
Verdict: Yes, you can make these in an oven. I don’t think they were as pretty as Heather’s but they still tasted great.
Whole Peach Pies:
Recipe on Yummy Mummy Kitchen here.
