Help me take pretty pictures of food.

I'm going to start a recipe blog and I'd like some tips for taking pictures of food specifically. Books, articles, anything. Assume I know very little about taking pictures; I know a few basic rules of composition and that's about it.
However, I will be using a digital camera: a Canon PowerShot S90. For the time being, I have no money or inclination to get another camera. These don't have to be the best photos in the world anyway, just something nice enough to look at while you're reading something else.
Also, I will be taking pictures of stuff I make at home, so I have some control over the lighting, surroundings, containers used, etc.
