SNEAK ATTACK POST! (erm, don’t get your hopes up too much, its a very short post)


Look at this. Look how much effort I put into that text on the title photo? Eh? Eh? (I don’t think I’ve put text onto a photo in a while..)

And also, 2 recipes in one week.

Probably something to do with the fact that I’m just photographing ALL THE FOOD because I got a new camera!!!!!!!!!!!

Peach and Pecan Brown Sugar Parfait

Some people may be interested to know my camera history:

I had a canon ixus point + shoot when I started, then moved to my first DSLR, the Canon 400D in January 2011. Last year in November (I think) I upgraded slightly to the Canon Rebel T2i (aka 550D).

and now

Peach and Pecan Brown Sugar Parfait

I just fully went for it and blasted all the way to a freaking 5D mark III.

It is a monster, and makes the most beautiful shutter sound evar (I am not joking. I love the shutter noise. Stop with the judge-y eyes). I’ve used it for 3 shoots so far and I keep being amazed at the sharpness and detail in the images.

Sorry, I’m way too excited about it. I’m making up for being annoying with food name alliteration though.

Peaches, pecans. Parfait!

..Brown sugar (?). (yeh, just ignore that slight anomaly).

It was my breakfast. Pre-yoga breakfast – that’s why there’s like zero food there, and as I said

new camera excitement + pretty food + I still had my background set up = me having an impromptu photo sesh at 6am.

I’m addicted to eating peaches with vanilla-honey Greek yogurt. It’s like eating peaches and vanilla ice cream, but acceptable to shove at my face in the morning! Hurrah!

Btw, this is pretty much a non-recipe (more of a flavour pairing suggestion) because it’s literally the simplest thing in the world to make, so I haven’t included specific measurements.

    Ooh I love getting a new camera. About three weeks ago I upgraded from a bridge camera to a DSLR camera, and I love it. I completely agree about the shutter noise, there’s something satisfying about it clicking away :).
    And this parfait looks delicious, such a perfect breakfast ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Amy August 10, 2013 at 3:52 pm

    Yes! that shutter noise is one of my favorite sounds.. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ok, your photos were already amazing, so they are just going to become more awesome. I can live with this ๐Ÿ™‚ Congrats on the new camera! I am SO envious.

  • Sophie August 10, 2013 at 6:56 pm

    Yum! this sounds delisssssh! Just last week, I started stirring in honey with my greek yogurt in the morning and eating it with sliced bananas, almonds, and a dash of cinnamon. It’s to die for. And it tastes like dessert for breakfast! Lerrrrv.

  • Karin August 10, 2013 at 7:12 pm

    Aha! So that’s what you were doing at 6AM! It was clearly worth it cause you rocked that yoga class!

  • Alexandra @ Confessions of a Bright-Eyed Baker August 10, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    Yay for layering parfaits! These sound delish! ๐Ÿ™‚ Okay, so I’m also a little envious of your new camera. I want to here more! I’m using the t2i right now too. What lens do you shoot with mostly?

    I hear what you’re saying about the shutter sound-I visit Best Buy just to push the shutter button (You said no judging, right?!)

  • Alice August 11, 2013 at 5:00 pm

    This sounds absolutely delicious! I’m very likely to be eating this tomorrow. xx

  • Sarah | The Sugar Hit August 12, 2013 at 4:33 am

    Your photos are so freaking great, I don’t care if you just want to do “flavour combos” for the rest of forever. They always look face-crammingly good.

  • Jana August 12, 2013 at 12:26 pm

    ha, i thought i was the only one who gets exicted on shutter sounds ๐Ÿ˜€ recently a friend of mine let me shoot with his father’s eos 7d and i was totally stunned – usually i’m shooting with my 550d, so it was a huge difference…
    happy photographing!

  • Melanie @ Just Some Salt and Pepper August 12, 2013 at 4:31 pm

    This looks delicious! I can think of several fruit pairings that would go well too. Thanks!

  • Todd @ HonestlyYUM August 12, 2013 at 6:16 pm

    I always love a good sneak attack post ๐Ÿ˜›

    • Izy August 15, 2013 at 11:52 pm

      well who wouldn’t! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • carey August 14, 2013 at 1:13 pm

    Yeeeeeeeessssssssssssss. !! I did no job work for two days after I got my camera. The shutter sound is the best. And isn’t it crazy how crisp and detailed everything is with the full frame? And the MKIII especially, whoawhoawhoa. Not gonna lie, I’m already getting the upgrade itch…. Gah!

    I’ve been on a crazy-yogurt-things-for-dessert kick, and this is pretty much exactly what I want, especially since I’ve started getting kind of obsessed with peaches. I think I might actually be getting over the stone fruit texture thing. Woop!

  • Magda August 14, 2013 at 7:52 pm

    I’m so happy for you! I understand how excited you must be because recently I got my very first (!!) DSLR, I used a point-and-shoot for way too long, and I’m walking on air. I can’t believe the difference it makes, and I too love the shutter sound ๐Ÿ™‚
    Enjoy your new camera, have fun and do share every food you eat. We love it!

  • Deirdre August 23, 2013 at 12:04 pm

    Love this summery breakfast number. I recently fell in love with roasted peaches for breakfast too. I love when delicious fruit is in season!
