Wraps Bachelorette Style

Here’s a quick easy recipe for all you bachelorettes (or bachelors). 

Ingredients:

Wraps (I used the Sun-dried tomatoes wraps)
Roasted chicken (one you can get from a grocery store)
Bagged Salad (or a head of lettuce)
Sweet Chili Sauce

Take slices of roasted chicken, some of the bagged salad and drizzle sweet chili sauce on a wrap. Fold the wrap. 

Voila 

Anyway I made this simple recipe and it was my lunch for 4 days.

Cream Corn… Anyone?

I have a new recipe that I have tried from Pinterest. This recipe is for Cream Cheese Corn. Here is the link from the original recipe. 

http://www.thetwobiteclub.com/2013/11/baked-cream-cheese-corn-with-crumbled.html?m=1

The only change I did was add Okra to the dish. Here are the ingredients. 

 

  • 4 cans Libby’s whole kernel corn, drained
  • 12 slices bacon, split
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 2 – 8 ounce packages cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil or melted butter
  • About 15 okra cut into pieces

I added the Okra as I added the Cream Cheese to the skillet. 

I have to say this is my first real time saute onions in butter and not burning them. Worked really well. 🙂 That is my real proud moment. 

Anyway this was a great recipe as an alternative to Cream Corn. I brought it to a wedding and it went really quickly. I almost didnt get any. 

Enjoy!

Seeing the Milky Way through my Camera

I was able to take my first night photos last week while in British Colombia. I was so excited! I worked for about an hour at about 1 AM.  But I was able to get some good shoots. I have put all the shots that I did so you can see the good, the bad and the ugly.
I like learning from all my shots. I hope this helps anyone else that wants to learn too. A couple of notes about some conditions of taking these photos. I don’t have a remote yet for my bulb setting on my DSLR. So some of my shakiness may have come through. Unfortunately I was near some houses and a gravel company so its not the best for the lighting of the ground.

Another issue, when I reimaged my photos through Picasa it changed the colouring of the photos a little. All the pictures seem to have gotten lighter and a little orange.  I don’t know how to fix this. Hopefully I can figure out how to fix it for my website.

I have put all my main settings below each photo so you know the details as well.

I want to thank the blog Leanne Cole Photography . I was able to get the recipe of night photography from her blog.

The recipe is: ISO – Greater than 3200, F-stop as low as you can go, and exposure time 30 seconds.
