Before and After and Two Questions

“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.”
Epicurus quotes (Greek philosopher, BC 341-270)

I love the bw conversion - well done.

I love both... and YEs I bake, and no I do not facebook

Margaret Duarte said...

I am known for my baking rather than my cooking. My oatmeal cookies and my lemon cake are well received by all. What's the difference between a regular facebook page and a facebook "fan" page? I checked out your fan page and it looks like my facebook profile. I have heard of "fan" pages, maybe you can clue me in. How's that for answering a question with a question?

Self Sagacity said...

Yes, I like what you did with the pictures. I don't bake, afraid of inventory, and tool accumulation. LOL.

I don't have a fan page, and would love to have one. How did you put yours on the blog? I am sure I can dig, but it takes so long! I like your recent updates to your blog.

1. I am a terrible baker because I usually burn everything I try to bake. However, I love desserts so I always buy them.

2. I don't have a Facebook fan page but rather a regular profile page. I'll check yours out now. Thanks.

I absolutely LOVE to bake! I think it's so much fun to be as creative as you want, and everything is edible!

I don't have a Facebook fan page, but your fan page looks great! =)

i like the AFTER--much more dramatic.:p

i used to bake but i guess it was just a phase. most of my baking efforts were flops. good thing i had brothers and cousins who were willing victims.:p

yes, i do have a facebook account. it's a great tool reconnecting with long lost friends and classmates.:p

Donnie said...

Your picture was really good. Loved the black and white version.

I do bake once in a while. Don is not much of a sweet eater so I go in phases. Mostly cookies.

I have a FB account but not a fan page.

Cathy Kennedy said...

Absolutely, I love to bake cookies, cakes, pies,...And, my family loves me for it, too. =D

Yes, I have a FB page:

It's slowly growing and I can't say one way or another if it's helping me. But, I hope to know the answer to this truly in the coming weeks when my book is released for sale. I'll check your FB page soon.

The after totally suits the subject. So moody and pretty at the same time.

Great Crop and Processing!

Suburban Girl said...

I do like the b&w conversion.

Empty Nester said...

I like both! But I am crazy about b&w! Did you warm that black and white a bit? I really like the way it turned out!

Katie said...

That's a great edit!!

Yes, I bake. Cookies, mainly, but also sweet breads and cheesecakes! And yes, I have a FB page for my family blog...but I don't do anything with it. I don't even know why I made one!

Lui said...

No. I prefer to just buy. It is more economical and I get perfect cakes that I can actually eat! But I make no-bake cheesecake and pudding.

No FB because I manage my dog Sweepy's FB. I'm not too fond of it.

Liz said...

Love this photo both ways. good job.

Kala said...

Hi! That's a great photo. I really like the after.

1. I go through phases. I bake hundreds of cookies in December for cookie swap parties.

2. I'm not on facebook. No personal profile or fan page.

Thanks for visiting me. Now I'm following you. I'm doing my first giveaway (CSN $35) stop over and enter if you get a chance.

Enjoy the weekend! :)


SquirrelQueen said...

Nice photo conversion.

I can bake but since it is just my husband and I it is something I rarely do.

I have a regular facebook page and a fan page. I like it, it is great for promoting my giveaways. I also think it is more fun than my regular page.

I'm at

Buckeroomama said...

Great conversion!

Yes, I bake, but not as often as I want to. But I hope to do more now that my aunt has given me one of her Kitchen Aids! Yay!
