"featured image" news and stories
In honor of the victorious New York Giants, we're featuring the image of a cupcake devoted to them. This image comes to us from Clever Cupcakes, a Flickr user and baker out of Montreal. These puppies are chocolate cake with a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup in the center. They are topped with Vanilla Buttercream grass and a fondant logo. Tasty and sporty!
We post feature an image in this space very weekday (and occasionally on the weekends as well). If you'd like to see your picture here, join us over on Flickr and add your photos to the Slashfood pool.
I find this picture, posted by Stef, slightly creepy and yet totally fascinating, all at the same time. I know that it's tradition to bake trinkets into the King Cake, so it's not quite as strange as it could be, but it's still a little nutty to see a plastic baby climbing out of a cupcake. For the story (and recipes!) on these cupcakes, check out Stef's post on her blog, Cupcake Project. Apparently, these babies won her third place in a King Cake Bake-off. Good job, Stef!

Today's Food Porn Daily image is coming to you just as much because I'm intrigued by the recipe as because the picture is appealing. I tend to think of hummus and garbanzo beans as a food best kept strictly savory. My unimaginative food brain would never have thought to take it in a different, sweeter direction. If you're curious, the background and recipe for this dish can be found here. Thanks Canela y Comino for trying out such an interesting recipe and posting them to the Slashfood group.

Today featured picture is nothing more than a plate of vegetables. But sometimes (at least in my book), there is nothing more beautiful than the fresh, vibrant colors and shapes of veggies. I've actually been passing this image by for the last few days, but each time I saw it, it caught my eye and called out to me. And so here it is!
It is one in a series of images from the night that Susan from Sticky, Gooey, Creamy, Chewy first followed the recipe for Jap Chae from Jaden's Steamy Kitchen. The rest of the pictures look equally delectable.

Today's featured image is a gorgeous, half sliced loaf of homemade whole wheat sourdough bread. Being the sucker for bread that I am, this image makes me wish I could catapult myself through my computer screen and land next to this loaf. Sad that we haven't discovered a way to make that happen yet. If you want a little history on this particular loaf of bread, check out Jenn's blog entry about it. Apparently she's discovered a recipe that uses all whole wheat flour to excellent results.
