I feel like a Paslov dog. I am salivating. Awesome!

As far as the background, well, all I see is good food. lol.

However, instead of searching for that perfect tablecloth, you might try fabric stores in search of that perfect color you want or need. You could pick up several pieces to experiment with.

Or home improvement stores for wallpaper or laminate for the wood look. I don't know if those would work in photography though.

icopus,

I am glad that you found something good in those images.

You know, we actually did go on a hunt the morning those images were taken.
We went to Target, Bed & Bath, and Pier 1, looking for backgrounds and bowls, and the placemats that we bought did not work out.
They caused the images to look distorted, or my spouse felt that they just didn't "go with" the food we had.

I will try fabric stores, and even a place that sells home furnishings at some point.
I have seen decent images on the Internet that had bare wood surfaces, and I have seen those in The Home Depot.
Maybe I get lucky and find some backgound at some antique or salvage place.

I liked the items that I viewed on-line at Ink and Elm as that they reportedly featured a satin or matte finish, which would help cut down on highlights or reflections.
Their products look intriguing.

BTW, someday I will try those Walking Tacos made with Frito's.
After your post, I read a lot about them.

I would love to produce some decent "Danger Dog" images someday as well.

With enough frequency I've not liked many of the backgrounds encountered in dining establishments, specifically tables. That has encouraged me to come in as close as possible to get shots. Even in our own kitchen I tire of the countertop. navydoc's wood cutting board sets I really like. The rustic styled woods are trendy. (The Mrs. won't let me bring in the old wooden fence for those kitchen shots. ;) ) I went looking at cutting boards and I expected as much...the ones I like are $.

Stopped by Home Goods and they have some pretty nice stuff for sets including cutting boards and other kitchen items. The wife isn't shocked at the accumulation of props even though we have the basics. Just that "little bit more". LOL The antique store as well but they are already at wallet ripping prices. Now the thrift store is on the next hunt for items.

A cutting board that appeals is still on the list.

Another source of small wooden surfaces is the scrap bin at a lumberyard. I used to pass near one that abounded in grainy treasures. Unfortunately, our garage is only so big.

The lumbar yard is a great thought! I haven't been by one for fear of buying more than I can use. ;) Have some cuts of maple, walnut, purple heart, white oak and some other misc cuts. Cut some poplar but it needs some "aging" effects added.

She did a baking session yesterday into the late hours. Browned butter chocolate chip cookies. This time with a different chocolate chip from Choc XO.

A quick snack consisting of Tostitos Scoops filled with shredded cheese (Cheddar & Jack in this case) then popped in the microwave oven to melt the cheese until bubbly. Sprinkle with some chopped green onions and enjoy.

Great to munch on while watching the game or just enjoying some with your favorite cold beverage with friends.

That's what separates good cookies from sugar biscuits.  :p

Nothing exciting here, just baked some rugelach for my son's party at work.
The second shot wasn't cooked in my kitchen but in my son's kitchen and not by me but by him. This is a gourmet/connoisseur kid who cooks from scratch just as his mamma does. So proud of this kiddo.
The soup is called Soto Ayam, Indonesian and delicious. I taught him how to cook this and many more dishes.
And this is the way he serves food to just eat by himself!
I'm a proud mom.
