  • 1 TBS white vinegar
  • 1 TBS water
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1ea white onion
  • 2ea bell pepper 

fresh limes for garnish

bamboo or steel skewers

 

Steps

  1. If you're using wood skewers soak them in water until ready to use
  2. In a medium bowl, combine cubed turkey breast, 1/2 of the McCormick Mojito lime marinade, olive oil, white vinegar, water, garlic, salt, black pepper, white onion, and bell pepper.
  3. Allow the meat to marinate overnight or for at least 4 hours.
  4. After the meat is marinated, remove your skewers from the water and pat off excess water.

Roast in your preheated oven for 30 minutes, stirring once halfway through. Remove pan from your oven and set aside. Reserve about 1/2 cup for the garnish.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the cubed potatoes and black pepper. Cook for about 2 minutes, stirring frequently.

Lavender & Thyme Lemonade and Lemon sugar https://www.emmisimages.com/blog/2020/5/lavender-thyme-lemonade-and-lemon-sugar Lavender & Thyme Lemonade and Lemon sugar


Ingredients

Lemon sugar:

  • 1 cup cane sugar
  • Zest of 1 lemon, save the lemon for the base and juice later!

Lemonade base:

  • 2 cups water
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon dried lavender buds
  • 3/4 cups lemon sugar
  • 2 drops lavender oil
  • 1 zested and squeezed lemon

Lemonade:

  • 6 cups ice cold water
  • Juice from 7-9 ripe lemons, chilled. Use 1 lemon for garnishing
  • springs lavender,  for garnishing
  • Ice

 

Steps

  1. Prepare the lemon sugar first by mixing the sugar and lemon zest and let it sit in an air tight Mason jar for at least an hour. If you like you can grin the sugar finer, but I didn't. It's going to be strained later.
  2. Bring water to a boil. While you're waiting for the water to boil, juice your lemons. Starting with the lemon you already zested for the sugar. Put the lemon juice in the fridge in a covered container for later.
  3. Once the water is at a rolling boil, add in you lavender buds, thyme, lemon sugar, lavender oil drops, and your zested squeezed lemon.
  4. Turn the heat down to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Your kitchen should be smelling pretty nice right about now!
  5. After 20 minutes, turn off heat, remove pan from hot burner, and let steep until warm to the touch. The base color should be a baby pink, not purple.
  6. If you're preparing the lemonade for another day, carefully pour the base mixture in a mason jar or small covered pitcher and refrigerate until you're ready for step 7.
  7. Grab the base, chilled lemon juice, and ice cold water. In a tall pitcher, mix all three together until well combined. Taste, and add more sugar if needed. I just added more plain cane sugar.
  8. Add ice to the pitcher.
  9. Refrigerate until ready to serve. 
  10. Garnish with lavender springs and lemon slices.
  11. I was served lemons, but I made lemonade.

Homemade Ricotta Cheese https://www.emmisimages.com/blog/2020/4/homemade-ricotta-cheese Homemade Ricotta Cheese
 

Ingredients

  • 8 cups Whole Milk
  • 1 1/2 cups Heavy cream
  • 1 TBS kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup acid (lemon, vinegar, etc)*

Tools

  • Strainer
  • cheesecloth
  • candy thermometer

Steps

  1. Line a strainer with three layers of cheesecloth. Place the strainer over a bowl and set aside.
  2. Combine milk, heavy cream, and salt in a pot like a Dutch oven.
  3. Attach the candy thermometer to the side of the pot. Then, place the pot with the milk and cream mixture over medium-high heat and lightly stir periodically. 
  4. Wait about 15 minutes until the candy thermometer reads 185°F. Turn OFF the heat and add your acid. Stir lightly a couple of times to incorporate the acid. Then, let the mixture sit undisturbed for at least 5 minutes. 
  5. CAREFULLY, pour the mixture into the prepared strainer with cheesecloth and bowl underneath. The majority of the whey will strain into the bowl. The curds sit in the strainer for **20 minutes, you can go longer if you want firmer ricotta. 
  6. Next, lightly gather the cheesecloth to make a pouch with the curds inside, lightly wring out the whey.
  7. Add kosher salt.
  8. Gently fluff and let cool in the fridge.

 

*NOTES

*For acid, I used 2 small lemons and topped off the remaining with white distilled vinegar, to make 1/4 cup.

**For a firmer cheese, let the cheese sit for 30-45 minutes.

Gathering Food Technique Collab https://www.emmisimages.com/blog/2020/4/gathering-food-technique-collab Gathering...

Now that the cold weather is breaking and Easter just passed, gathering together with family and friends feels only right. But the reality of the current situation is that the gatherings aren’t going to happen for at least another few weeks. So for now, the best way we can be together in the future is to be apart now. Preferably six or more feet. 

Ironically, the collab theme this month hosted by @foodcapturecollective members Larisa (@doctor_cupcake_) and Alesandra (@a.modo_mio) has a theme of “Gathering”. While most of the photographers may have shot a large table spread including some of their friends, we were mandated to think outside the box and practice social distancing by only including people who live with us. Click the hashtag for the #monthlytechniquecollab to see what ideas the other photographers came up with!

I created a “Who’s coming to breakfast?” table setup. I’ve been wanting to do a breakfast shoot like this but time has never been on my side. Well now it is! I set the table the night before woke up at 3:30am and finished shooting at 7:30am. A cat nap at 1pm and I was good to cull images for the rest of the day. I did have to resort to my 18-55mm kit lens to get the shot but I had fun from beginning to end! When Corona season is over and I get back to work, I’m coming for the Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art lens!!! 

— Stay healthy, Stay safe everyone!—

Vegan Cinnamon Roll https://www.emmisimages.com/blog/2020/4/vegan-cinnamon-roll Vegan Cinnamon Rolls 
 

Ingredients

For the vegan cinnamon bun dough:

  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup vegan butter, cut into small cubes (I used Earth Balance)
  • 1 1/4 cup non-dairy milk (such as soy or almond)

For the cinnamon sugar filling:

  • 1/4 cup vegan butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • tablespoon cinnamon

For the icing (optional-I would double this id you like your icing):

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 teaspoons lemon juice or non-dairy milk*

Steps

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F. I used a cast-iron skillet but you can also line a 9"x 12" baking dish with parchment paper or grease it. ***For the cinnamon buns to stay soft they need to expand into each other. Keep them sung. If they have too much room around each bun, they can end up getting crispy. 

  2. Make the dough: In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add in the vegan butter cubes and use a pastry cutter or fork to cut the butter into the flour until you reach a grainy texture. Pour in the non-dairy milk and combine to make a shaggy dough.

  3. Either in the bowl or on a clean work surface use your hands to knead the dough together incorporating any leftover dry ingredients until it all comes together into a nice ball. Let the dough rest in the bowl for 10 - 15 minutes before proceeding for the best dough texture. Resting allows the dough to get stretchy which is a must for gorgeous pull apart cinnamon buns!

  4. Roll the dough: Once the dough has rested, lightly flour a clean work surface and roll the dough with a rolling pin until you get a rectangle about 19" x 14". 

  5. Cinnamon sugar filling: Pour the melted vegan butter over the rolled out dough and use a pastry brush or the back of a spoon to spread evenly over the dough. In a small bowl mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon, then sprinkle the cinnamon sugar evenly over the melted butter.

  6. Roll your cinnamon buns: Starting from the long side of the dough rectangle, use your hands to gently roll the dough up. Once rolled, use a sharp knife to cut 12 cinnamon rolls by gently sawing with the knife. I like to mark out each bun by lightly scoring the surface of the roll before doing the final cuts, to ensure even sized cinnamon buns.

  7. Bake: Place the cinnamon buns in the baking dish, swirl side up, and bake for 24 - 28 minutes until puffed up and lightly golden. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

  8. Optional icing: Combine the powdered sugar, vegan butter, vanilla extract, and lemon juice or non-dairy milk together in a small bowl. Use lemon juice to add a little bit of tang to the icing, but if you want an all sweet icing opt for non-dairy milk. Spread the icing roughly over the warm cinnamon buns. The icing will melt into the cinnamon buns a little.

Pear Galette https://www.emmisimages.com/blog/2020/4/pear-galette Pear Galette with Pecans and Cranberry
 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 package Pillsbury prepared pie dough (1 circle)
  • 3 medium ripe Bosc pears, still firm
  • 1/3 cup walnuts halves and pieces or pecans
  • 1/2 cup fresh cranberries (or dried. I used dries because fresh wasn't in season)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste (It's a pandemic, I couldn't even find vanilla extract)
  • 1 tablespoon dark rum (optional-Personally, I would pass on this)
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • egg white and raw sugar for sprinkling on crust

Steps

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Gently roll out the pie crust dough circle until it is roughly 13". Then, chill dough while you prepare the remaining ingredients.
  3. Halve the pears lengthwise, remove the stems and remove the core with a melon baller or spoon.
  4. Cut the pear halves into fans by placing the pears cut side down on the cutting board and slicing into thin slices Leave the slices together. 
  5. Place the pears slice side down while you prepare the caramel to prevent browning.
  6. In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring the sugar, water, and corn syrup to a boil. Continue to boil WITHOUT STIRRING until the sugar reaches a nice caramel color. Immediately remove the sugar from the heat when it reaches the desired color.
  7. Then, add in the salt, cinnamon, vanilla bean paste, rum, cream, and butter. The combination of hot caramel and cool ingredients will cause the caramel to vigorously boil. Pour with caution. Stir the caramel until the butter is melted and the cream is incorporated. 
  8. Gently press down on the pear slices to form a fan. Arrange the pear fan in the middle of the pie dough circle. Sprinkle with your choice of nuts and cranberries (if cranberries are dried, add them after baking to prevent burning) and drizzle with caramel sauce.
  9. Fold and pleat the uncovered dough over the edge to form a crust. I made an octagon (8 sides) for easy serving. Pull the side up as far a possible to prevent leaks.
  10. Brush the pie crust with egg white and sprinkle with raw sugar. Then, place in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown.
  11. Let cool completely before serving.
  12. Enjoy!
