While I do cook at home, writing and developing recipes there happens rarely since I do it full time at work. But I'd still like to share some of my recent published recipes here, hope you try them out!
The best part of developing a story / recipe is seeing it published with beautiful photos. Love the work our photographer Chris Rochelle did and I'm really happy with how these ice cream bars turned out.
Been here at CHOW.com for over a year and thought I had gone through some fairly elaborate photo shoots until now. It was only 5 photographs, but involved a group of 5 people who cooked, styled, shopped, propped, photographed, retouched, reimaged, and more for a week!
One of the funnest parts was looking the food culture in the '60s and '70s and seeing if we could update or reinvent them while keeping the spirit of the dish, things like a glazed ham, soft dinner rolls, and casseroles. While a jello mold was not involved, there was definite discussion about it.
