I love this salad. The last time I made something similar to this it was with pears, walnuts and blue cheese and no mayo. Which for the record is very yum. *sidenote* The first Waldorf Salad came from the Waldorf Hotel in NYC back in 1893. Originally it only had apples, celery, and mayonnaise in it. Walnuts were added later, good thing too! The recipe up the top there is one I've made up based on the Waldorf salad but with more good bits in it. Enjoy!

Spanish Crunchy Baby Potatoes ...

On a side note without getting on too much of a rant about health stuff. I think it's a good idea to leave potato skins on. There is no real reason to peel them unless you're really not a fan. Originally the skins were peeled because they were thought to be dirty, therefore peeling them they would be cleaner and healthier. Leaving the skins on actually has it's benefits as they help to hold in the nutrients - those being vitamin C, vitamin B6, copper, potassium and magnesium. Oh and the skins hold 50% of the potatoes’ fiber. Sounds pretty good to me! That wasn't too much of a rant I hope ... :)

I wrote this recipes and took this photo for the Ceres Fair Food, you can find it here...

p.s ... I changed my face.

Just a quick note, if you haven'y noticed already I changed my blog header. See you soon with something delicious. x

James & Candace tie the knot.

A few weeks back I shot a wedding in Hawkes Bay on the East Coast of New Zealand. It was perfect wedding weather. Hay bales, teapots, flowers, flax and even the pork on the spit! Such a great day spending time with everyone.

I enjoyed photographing people as they are rather than as they are told to pose! Candace and James’ attitude towards their wedding was awesome, it was all about having a beautiful and fun time with their friends and family. Literally a flying visit though as we had another wedding to attend in Raumati South (about 4 hours away) the next day, which was another amazing wedding to say the least. Flags, feathers, performance and a wedding cake made out of cheese! Lucky me I say!

So lately I've been in love land with my photos :) But please do stay tuned for some berry butter treats soon!
