Double Recipe - Crostini w/ Salmon & Capers + w/ Spinach & Hearts of Palm - FOOD PHOTO SHOOT

in #photography4 years ago (edited)

Did you have a great Christmas??? I think it was the best ever in my house. Such a great day to remember. But now we still have the rest of the week until New Year's and there's still time for some holiday food preparations.


That's right, and these crostini are the subject today. Another one of my recipes for the holidays. I tend to make things over complicated and sometimes I realize that not everything I make has to be layers upon layers of flavor.


Sometimes basic is better you know? It’s a good thing I didn’t try to do too many of my more time-consuming recipes this week or I’d still be trying to finish everything. What I'm trying to say is that these are very easy!


Besides, it’s pretty hard to mess things up when you’re dealing with toasted bread and cream cheese. I mean, on a bad day I could probably find a way, haha, but I’ll bet you’ve got this thing in the bag.


So get to it! Every night’s a good night for a crostini party!


ALL CONTENT IS MINE AND ORIGINAL! All of these food photos were taken with my Nikon D5300 and my favorite Lens, the Nikon AF-S FX NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G. You can find out more in my INTRO POST.

And, by the way, to all the minnows out there, my intro post did a huge $0.21. The key to success on Steemit is to be consistent and persistent.

No sadly the spinach, the capers and the salmon were missing...

Um.. I think taste and smell are good!!!

Thanks so much @blazing. As you can tell, I am catching up on comments

It looks fanastic and delicious greetings

Can I stop missing the quote I need to say in order to get the recipe? "Look Out 2018!" hehe :)

Great post as always, looks delicious!!

so tasty and beautiful photos. me and my gf @rooddzy are minnows and can only post, look and wait for now. My gf has a healthy blog. do you have any suggestions? we just started but maybe you can help us somehow.

thank you and keep up the great work!

I will have to make this for my wonderful husband! He loves salmon and capers!

Oh, well I hope he enjoys this one. I seem to remember him saying he looks forward to the savory stuff over the sweet! Thanks @lifes-a-donut!

this looks and sound delicious. how I wish i know how to make this :) Thank you for this post

i wish i would :)

Hehe, well I'm so happy you enjoyed this one @benhilmi03!

Great recipe. Reminds me of lox and bagels. Everytime we go to NYC they are a must at the delis. I like the crunch / texture with the crostini you used. Also they are "portion control" bites especially with the Holidays. Nice party appetizer idea! Have a good day. Tess :)

lox, for sure.

I actually plan on going to NYC in 2018 for the first time. My parents have been a lot, my Dad used to work there so they're going to take me and probably my sister @fullofhope.

Yeah, I thought everyone would like some good ideas for holiday parites

These look HEAVENLY!!

always such a fantastic supporter @alovelymess. 2018 is going to be awesome!!

Wao are easy to make and in my case they change the everyday. Excellent

Lovely images! lot of attention to the details and the recipe looks delicious

@ gringalicious Nice Sharing I LOVE crostini. It is seriously one of my favorites. and now that I have my braces off, I can eat it without fear! Oh my word, can I laugh at your food processor demonstration? Mentioning the pomegranate juice reminds me when my brother, at the ate of 3, threw grape juice all over the wall. Oh yes. On purpose too. haha can’t wait to try this!

Haha, yes you may laugh. Thanks for reading @asadaslam1!

You inspire me to keep baking!

Now that is a compliment! That is always my goal, to spread inspiration.

Thank you for this great recipe, also top for sportiv active heroes out there, use brown bread and cottage cheese :) delicious!

Welcome to steemit @up2you.

This looks like a fantastic recipe and perfect for entertaining. The only problem I can see with it is that because they are bite-sized, I'd probably trick myself into believing I'm having 'small portions' but just eat a lot of them haha.

Hope you and the fam had a great Christmas!

this is one of those where one is too many and eight is not enough. Thanks so much for commenting @phamished

WOW delicious, if you want to see my cake with cheese and white chocolate, is in spanish, but is easy to translate. the link is here.

Happy life!!
