    Exquisite Faberge!
    Julie, your food photography continues to astound me.
    I can manage to photograph anything raw or fruit or veg – but anything cooked or baked? forget it!
    Can you give us some tips on food photography?

    After you carve the outside, how do you eat/cut the watermelon into pieces?

    Just hack it up! I often cut watermelon into chunks without the rind anyway – makes it easy for the kids to pick up bite sized pieces and pop them in their mouth!

    The watermelon is truly a work of art! It looks like it would have taken a long time to carve.

    What an out-of-the-box idea! It’s so pretty! How did the class react? Came over through Tastespotting!

    This is beautiful! I can’t wait to try it! Would you recommend the tools from those little pumpkin carving kits to do this, or is a paring knife better?

    Honey Sage Cornbread…so simple…so elegant! That watermelon “egg” is a wonder. I once made a “handled” basket with incised designs. Melons are so great to work with. Wonder if one could use a cantaloupe. Bless your Mom…she shows such strength (literal and figurative)in her arms and hands.

    Do you have the recipe for the potato salad. It does look delicious. And that Fabrege Petique is absolutely ingenious.

    The Faberge watermelon is exquisite. Please send a copy to the Faberge company if it still exists, or post on You Tube. I’d love a photo.

    An extensive and refined market research will give you detailed information about various types of alternatives
    that are available in the market. Now let’s also say that you regularly eat fast food or
    food that often contains a very high oil or grease amount.
    But to best understand how we can prevent water pollution we need to
    look closely at our storm water management strategies.
