Sunday, February 08, 2015

While at Imaging USA last week in Nashville I was going through the trade show and came across this intriguing little item.It is called Grip & Shoot. After watching the demo I just had to try it and ended up getting one. I often enjoy using my cell phone camera instead of lugging my dslr when out and about.

The Grip & Shoot eliminates these problems.The Grip & Shoot uses a free app (Iphone and android) to sync with the phone to trigger the camera.

Holiday Fruit Compote
Monday, December 23, 2013

This is a great recipe to make ahead, I do it the day before. It actually must sit for 6 to24 hours before heating. I found that using a crock pot makes it very easy and doesn't take up valuable oven space.It calls for a fruit flavored liqueur, I use Chambord.It makes quite a bit, leftovers keep well in the refrigerator and it's great for dessert too.HOT FRUIT COMPOTE 1/2 lb pitted prunes2 (15 ounce jars applesauce)2 teaspoons cinnamon1 teaspoon nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon allspice 1 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup fruit flavored liqueur (I use Chambord) 2 (20 ounce) cans chunk-style pineapple, drained 3 (1 lb) cans sliced peaches, packed in heavy syrup and drained 3 (1 lb) cans pear halves, packed in ...
