Strawberry Lychee Yogurt Parfait | Cooking with a Wallflower

Yogurt parfaits are one of my favorites! What’s not to like? You get to have your favorite yogurt and top it with fruits and granola and whatever it is that you like. This isn’t much of a recipe, I know. But it’s meant to be paired with my Crunchy Honey Almond Granola recipe so I hope that you will enjoy both =)

This was a truly epic bridal styled shoot we did a few years ago – and it proof positive that you can photograph a wedding in a style that doesn’t date your wedding. Keeping it romantic and timeless will fit every year now and in the future… and I’m still in absolute love with everything about this day, the amazing vendors, and the models!

Melissa, Kirsten, Brittany… couldn’t have done it without your beautiful faces!!!

Pure imagination

I have always been in love with this song since the first time I saw Gene Wilder sing it in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory when I was a kid.  It is a great set of lyrics to think about when you are in a creating mode.  I’m so lucky to have such an amazing team of “creatives” that help me play and make images while having fun.

 

These are some images from our Alice in Wonderland styled shoot…. a perfect theme for imagination.

Lyrics to Pure Imagination –

Hold your breath
Make a wish
Count to three

Come with me and you’ll be
In a world of pure imagination
Take a look and you’ll see
Into your imagination

We’ll begin with a spin
Traveling in the world of my creation
What we’ll see will defy explanation

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Wanta change the world?
There’s nothing to it

There is no life I know
To compare with pure imagination
Living there, you’ll be free
If you truly wish to be

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Wanta change the world?
There’s nothing to it

There is no life I know
To compare with pure imagination
Living there, you’ll be free
If you truly wish to be

Maybe egg in the hole won’t change your world, but fried egg in a hole made in some bread is one of my favorite things for breakfast lunch or dinner.  Best of all it can be done about a million different ways – so never grows old.

You may also know it as Egg in the basket, Betty Grable Eggs and has been adapted to things like “toad in the hole” for the sausage dish make in its likeness.  Really, all it involves is a piece of bread with a hole removed  and an egg in the center and then cooked with a little butter.

So here is just a slight variation from the traditional.

1 slice of bread

1 egg

1/2 of a sliced avocado

Salt & Pepper to taste

Bacon cut up into pieces.

 

That’s it – so yummy and no directions required – you assemble it how you wish and fry it in a pan.  I fight the normal and always put the “hole” to off center – so there is more room for the “extras” like bacon, scallions, chives, jalapeños, basil, honey … etc.  Cook the egg to your liking – soft, over easy, sunny side up, or hard.Egg in the hole Jeanine Thurston Photography_EIH_002

Don't miss any time you can take photos of and with your family.

My grandmother passed many years ago from cancer and this is the last photo I have of her, my mother and myself. It doesn’t matter who takes the photo… or the fact that there is a nice JELLO advertisement in the background!lol But it does matter that I have this image. It is one of my most cherished photos. Yeah – of course I wish we had nice professional portraits of the three of us… but this will due and just a reminder of how AWESOME she was. My grandpa is fading, but still around… but still love photos we have of him too.

Don’t miss any time you can take photos of and with your family.

Deviled Avocado & Egg Salad

Image

Easter is almost here, and if you’re like me – you’re hard-boiling those eggs for the kids to decorate.  Well – I don’t actually boil any more, we bake them… so much easier.  For the next week we will be trying to consume the eggs in various forms, and I needed something light and quick for a snack or fast lunch.

1-Avocado (split in half and pitted)

2 – Hard-boiled Eggs

1 – tsp mustard of choice (I love the stone ground to give it a little texture)

1 – tbs of mayo (again – you can substitute with Miracle Whip or any Vegi variety)

Take the yolks out and lightly mash the yolks with the mustard and mayo.  Then chop the whites and lightly fold into the yolk mixture and spoon it on top of the avocado!  Easy, quick, yummy.

Variations:  Add some paprika to the top, or I love adding some chopped green onions and jalapeño into the mix too.
