Buttermilk Clouds

About Buttermilk Clouds. About me.TaDa!!!


Buttermilk Clouds

ties together a few aspects of my life that I love. Cooking, photography and playing with blog templates. So, it is a labor of love, near and dear to my heart. I get inspiration from all around me. Cooking is a natural...I cook for an appreciative crowd - my family. From that I have developed a few quirks - I cannot pass up a cookbook or a bowl. (I don't know what is up with the bowls...the cookbooks I understand, but the bowls???) I have every type of casserole dish imaginable, not to mention pie plates, wooden spoons, pots and pans...the list goes on and on. The crowning jewel of my kitchen is my Kitchen Aid mixer that my son bought for me...was it two Christmas's ago? It's truly a 6 quart capacity bowl , industrial strength, luscious cream colored appliance masterpiece. OK, so I really like my mixer.What is not to love?

Photography has evolved within me. For as long as I can remember I have enjoyed drawing...pencil and ink. But, for the last several years I have not done either for one reason or another. Within me I feel the need to create - art, items of beauty, expressions of what I am feeling or seeing. Somehow this had to manifest it's self or leave me feeling 'not finished'. That is where photography came into play. It started with a digital camera that I bought for my husband and a trip to Bermuda. I would get up early and take long walks through picturesque neighborhoods snapping hundreds of shots a day of what I liked. As it turned out, the photos were gorgeous - not your normal run of the mill snapshots. (At least that is what I think!) Take a look at some of my photography at Looking through sea glass... For the Bermuda shots scroll down to Fall in love all over again...Bermuda style. Two of my favorites are the sailboat with the Christmas lights on the left and the pink house with green shutters. Since that trip I have continued snapping away.

All that leaves to cover is playing with blog templates. That is the geeky part of me coming out. I love working with CSS/HTML and editing my template. As a matter of fact, this is my second blog. My first is BlogU which concentrates on providing helpful tips for other bloggers to customize their blogs. (Shameless plug...check it out. You will probably find something that you can use to make your blog better.) I realize this aspect of my personality probably seems out of character considering my love for cooking and photography. But, I guess that is what makes me unique.

Buttermilk Clouds will cover recipes I like, photos of food and all things to do with cooking. I know you will enjoy reading my blog - because I will enjoy posting, cooking, taking photos, and tweaking my template!!!

    beks, Thanks for being the very first to post on my new blog!!! It is good to have a friend post the premier comment!

    Glad you liked it. I worked on it quite a bit to get the blog to display properly in Firefox and IE. And I, of course, tweaked it like crazy.

    This comment is a testimonial. This site is a waste of precious resources. You see I am the one who gets to eat these pies, I am her husband. This site is taking away precious time when she could be making more pies . J/K your doing a great job babe, keep up the good work. By the way they taste even better than they look

    There you have it folks...a completely unbiased testimonial from a *ahem* complete stranger! :-)

    Your photo inspires me to share my favorite fortune cookie saying: Happiness is a KitchenAid Stand Mixer.

    I've never actually seen it in a fortune cookie, but really it should be in one. Just like a KA Stand Mixer should be in every kitchen. (Mine pride and joy is cobalt blue.)

    @Rebecca, I absolutely love my KA mixer. It is a monster! My favorite thing is to put some ingredients in and let it mix while I do something else in the kitchen. Bliss.

    And, I love your fortune cookie quote. Pretty neat. Which made me think about a feature I posted about on my other blog...random quotes. You can put in whatever you want and change the quotes. Pretty neat. You can read about it here:
