Life for me slows down in January. The holidays are over. The Christmas tree has been taken down. Preparing for our New Year's Day brunch is history. I finally have the time to sit and peruse cookbooks and the stacks of recipes I've pulled throughout the year. It's a great time to recharge.
I also feel like my eating takes a radical change of direction in January. I've eradicated all cookies from the house! My thoughts have returned to healthy foods with vegetables overtaking my counters, refrigerator, and menus. And with bright, white light, reflecting off the snow and pouring in through the windows of my house, I have some of the best conditions of the year for photographing my work in the kitchen. Days full of experimentation await!
This morning for breakfast I'm eating Greek yogurt with honey and fruit-filled granola.
