These baked perfectly and are addictive too. I ate nearly two whole peppers after they cooled off. And more for lunch the next day!

You could use any recipe for the cornbread – whatever your favorite is. I took the easy road and used a box of Jiffy cornbread!

Choose your peppers wisely – they should be shaped and cut so that they can stand on their own and hold batter well.

We ate them as a side with tacos. I think they’d be good at a cookout with grilled chicken or with soup/chili/jambalya. All alone. Whatever floats your boat.

Cornbread-Stuffed Poblano Peppers

  • cornbread recipe, whatever that entails
  • half of a small jar of pimentos, drained (more if you like them a lot!)
  • 1/2 cup of shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, optional
  • 4 – 6 poblano peppers, halved and seeded
  • Preheat oven to 400°
  • Lightly grease a baking sheet
  • Mix up the cornbread recipe as directed. Add pimentos and cheese.
  • Let the batter rest while you slice the peppers in half and get the seeds out.
  • Give the batter one last little stir-up, it’ll help it rise better.
  • Pour the batter into the pepper halves.
  • Bake at 400° for about 20 minutes or until the cornbread is golden and lightly crispy on top.

Food Photography Course — night 5 of 30

Tonight’s lesson is about framing inside of the camera. This is not really a new concept, I always do this. Rarely do I crop during PP unless I just couldn’t get close while shooting. What I liked about this assignment though was the chance to not care so much about what the food was and really focus on the layout of the photo.

It was nice to think about the composition objectively. Not worry about making the food look good to show off a recipe, but to just think about how this bowl of cereal could look its best. Maybe that sounds silly now that I see it written out. But the process in my head felt different.

It helps too that I’m not worried about my dinner getting cold while I try to get a good photo!

Tonight’s lesson — Depth of Field

Although the next shot doesn’t represent DOF per se, I thought it looked, ya know, good enough to eat!

This brownie recipe came out of a Star Wars cookbook and I have to thank my (now) 13 year old for baking them up the first time – when he was just 11. Now its my go-to brownie! I’ll share my spin on the recipe soon.
