One of the trickiest things about being a food blogger in the darker winter months is lighting. There is nothing worse than trying to photograph a recipe once the sun has started to go down, so all of my recipes really need to be made and shot during the day time.
This is particularly annoying when I am blogging a dinnertime recipe that doesn’t taste so good reheated, and since I haven’t owned a microwave for over 8 years, I’m pretty stuck with some recipes. Luckily today Luke came home for an impromptu lunch and walked in to find me taking pictures of big juicy Mexican burgers topped with Homemade Guacamole. He is such a lucky guy!
It won’t be long until the evenings are light enough for me to photograph dinner time recipes at dinner time and I won’t have to worry about reheating meals for the family. Until then though, I shall have to make some more friends and start inviting them over for lunch to test out all of my foodie creations!
This Mexican Turkey Burger is just a spin of my Turkey Fajita Meatballs that I made last week. But served with some Homemade Guacamole, sour cream and salsa…..? YUM these are so good!
