Thanks Lizzy. Not all of the photos above were taken by me (just #1, 3, and 7). But yes, I do have a piece of marble that I use for food photos. You can see a behind the scenes look at my process and setup here: http://www.papernstitchblog.com/2015/02/17/behind-the-scenes-working-with-what-youve-got/ Hope that helps.


Your shots are so beautiful! Did you buy a slab of marble especially?


Wow. Love all and every single one of those ideas.



Who knew!! I have an abnormally large sweet tooth, so this is perfect.


I need to hurry and hop on the blood orange train!! I like the pops and lassi recipes.

Love this <3



These are great recipes! I’m really into blood oranges right now so the more ideas the better! I actually just made a blood orange margarita for #nationalmargaritaday on my blog austinstyled.com, you’ll love it!


ill be fixing the water


Mmm…blood oranges. I recently came across this blood orange blossom cake recipe that I am very excited to try: http://somethingsweetsomethingsavoury.com/2015/02/15/blood-orange-blossom-cake/

Blood oranges are so pretty! Now time to go to the market and make some popsicles and cocktails!

Oh! Blood orange curd sounds delicious, Carolyn.


Preach! Thank you for this – I have been mindlessly buying blood oranges by the armful every time I go to the store because I’m afraid of the day the season is officially over. These ideas will be so useful! But I’d like to add blood orange curd to the list 🙂

A blood orange party would be so fun, Kel. Good thinking.


Between your cake and those those donuts, I kinda want to have a whole blood orange party. I had blood orange waffles once that were pretty amazing too!

I agree, Sarah. I definitely need to give the cocktails a try!


Blood orange cocktails are fabulous, so I can imagine that the rest of these ideas are great too (especially the donuts!)
