A Wedding in the family: Wedding Shower Part 1 – Jalapeno Poppers with Apricot Dipping Sauce

Wedding shower food-5948 web

What kind of dad would Yes!Chef! be if he didn’t make all the food for his only daughter’s wedding shower?  Well, he would still be a good dad.  And his daughter would still love him dearly.  But he wouldn’t have as much fun and the food at her shower would not be as tasty.

Pulled Pork Sandwiches and Print Competitions

 

20130223-_MG_7812 words web

Yes!Chef! loves pork.  Until he started cooking pork for me, I always turned up my nose at any mention of recipes that included pork.  My experience with pork has been dried up meat that needed lots of barbecue sauce in order to be able to choke it down.

My mind has been changed with some of the recipes Y!C! has made…specifically the Pressure Cooker Carnitas Recipe and the Pulled Pork Recipe he made last summer.  And now, he’s found a Pulled Pork Recipe that is more to his liking:  spicy, sweet and no-creamy cole slaw.

I’ve seen the Light…another food photography post

Cierraproperlight webOccasionally I teach a class  on basic photography.  Whenever I teach this class, I always start out with how the camera sees light and I use this photo as an example. These two photos were taken within seconds of each other and within 5 feet of each other.  This beautiful woman was taking a class from me and I snapped these two photos off to show how light makes a difference in photography.  She was stunned with the results.  This photo has been one of the best learning tools that I have used.  The picture on the left is direct overhead, middle-of-the-day sunlight.  The shadows are harsh and for people, this light is not very flattering.  For the right hand photo, I moved her about 5 feet until she was under the open shade of a large tree with the same sunlight reflecting off the ground and bouncing onto her face.  You can see that reflected light in her eyes.  The light on her face is soft and without harsh shadows.

Fried Shrimp and Triple Cooked French Fries

I was rereading some of my past posts and found that I have been deceiving my dear readers.  I have, on more than one occasion, indicated that I would post recipes and/or photos of food we have made but not posted.  What?    Am I just trying to get you to read my newer posts, hungering for that recipe I said I would post but didn’t?  Nope.  Don’t you even think it.  I just plumb forgot.
