My Top 10 Flavors for the Year 2011

It's amazing how time flies, it was this week last year when I decided to finally start blogging seriously, we moved our subjects from under the light bulbs into sunlight, I started taking photography & writing seriously. And almost a year down the line & so many posts, this part of me is one of the best things in my life. Quoting G.B.Shaw "There's no sincerer love, than the love of food", my explanation would include - Creating+Photographing+Feeding :) the Food. It's this love of food & the love I get back from you all that keeps me going. With My.Creative.Flavors I have tried new cuisines, made new friends & learned a whole lot from new friends. I hope this journey continues in 2012 as we make new Friendships & cook-up some new Flavors on mycreativeflavors.com

I didn't want to follow the cliche' and bake myself a My.Creative.Flavors 1st B'day cake, but I'm gonna look back and pick my favorite posts from 2011 & remember the good times. Food & Photography experts have their opinions, I personally feel that if you have a vision for your own recipe and it has to show through your recipe+ingredients+styling+photography. What I learned was that various subjects like dim lights or lengthy shadows & some may like bright exposure, perhaps even a cross+process. My interpretation of my food has been driven a lot by the moods my recipes evoke. It is important the your photography reflects your vision and not get constrained by "The Picture Perfect Shot". Most of the times incidental ideas make the best recipes, incidental props make the best pictures & inadvertent angles make the best shots. Enough talk, back to our agenda.
So here are my Fvt creations in no particular order...


















Unbelievable, how 1 year can change the way you think about food. It's safe to say as a Food Blogger all you do is dream about food. Hope you like this quick recap and yes ...

"Have great 2012, May you and your family have a best of everything & all your wishes come true".

Hugs, Sonia
