I am a horrible recipe writer + i do not use measuring cups/spoons when i make my desserts (i would just eye-ball it). So...Here is a YouTube video on how to make "fluffy strawberry mousse" - www.youtube.com/watch?v=d1rjyw….
Making mousse is super easy and inexpensive. Try it
You're not the only person that doesn't really use measuring cups when making something. I was raised in a family that cook for quality; not quantity (we like taste more that accuracy). That's why I like my grandma's cooking more than my mom when she makes something by book. I use it as a reference sometimes. Anyway, this looks lovely for the summer time. Also, where do you get those (and other glasses) or are they on your FAQ?
I know this feeling with the recipes, I'm the same. I think, I 'inherited' this from my grandma. She always says, she composes her cakes, and if I want recipe, I need the watch her, and make my own cakes
The most ideal situation is to follow the instructions of a recipe. Specially when bake cakes and such. For mousse, it is not as important, plus mousse are so delicious, no one will notice the mistakes anyways.
Observing someone on hand is also a wonderful way to learn the tips and all. You are fortunate you have a grandmother to learn from, whereas I don't. I learn by sheer determination, I had always thought "how hard can they be?"... So yeah
Yep, it's good to have a recipe, but like to make "experiments". Little modifications here and there, changes of spice and so. So in the end, I rarely can tell, how I made something. But it's really fun, and the results (mostly) are really good
Q. Do you make all the food we see in your gallery?
99% of the food in my food gallery are made by me. They include from concept, styling, cooking, baking, taking photos to post editing. I own ALL the props for my food photos as well as my still life photos. For the store-bought food, you will find (in description box) a disclaimer in parentheses.
I do not make miniature foods. PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME FOR RECIPES & I do not have YouTube/FB accounts. If time allows, I am always glad to include instructions/tips and recipes. It is important to remember that I am a food photographer/food stylist (not a cook/professional baker). A helpful tip - if you need a specific recipe, chances are you can easily find them on line, i use Google and/or YouTube for my go-to helps. They are great learning tools and they have helped me immensely for anything i need help with (recipes included). Again, anything you wish to learn, all you need to do is -
