Duet: Mexican Street Corn / John Prine “Bruised Orange”

The food: About a year ago, I ate Mexican street corn for the first time … and fell in love. It’s charred sweet corn, onions, jalapenos, lime juice, and seasonings, all mixed with a healthy dose of mayonnaise. The results are spicy and creamy — the perfect side dish for backyard barbecues, family potlucks, or Taco Tuesdays. Best of all, it’s super simple[…]

The food: My boyfriend’s birthday was last week (I won’t say how old he is, but he does have more white hair than I), so I surprised him with a homemade cake.

In fact, it’s a relatively simple dessert that requires very little skill (although it does demand a lot of patience, as you have to wait hours to eat your[…]

Duet: Bacon, Asparagus, Spinach and Asiago Frittata / Sarah Vaughan “After Hours at the London House”

The food: Frittata sounds fancy, but it’s really just Italian for baked omelette. This hearty breakfast dish is quick, easy, and tasty. You can load it up with any ingredients your family likes and have a substantial meal on the table in about 10 minutes. There’s really just no excuse for sending your kids (or yourself, for that matter) out the door with[…]
