Black Beans with Poblanos and Corn

I am definitely going to need a lot more quick and easy dinners like this in my arsenal for when I go back to work in December. I’m trying not to stress too much about how I’m going to fit in workouts, work, cooking dinner, and caring for an […]

Potato and Corn Chowder

I know I’m a broken record, but I am completely obsessed with summer produce. Watermelon, berries, peaches, plums, grapes, corn, tomatoes… It may not ever feel like summer here, but at least we get all the amazing produce. We had a pretty awesome weekend…Friday night we went to Ikea […]

Grilled Corn with Chili-Lime Butter

We have made a ton of progress unpacking and settling in, but the living room definitely still needs a little work. We’ll get there… Yesterday we used our barbecue for the first time in almost a year. The 4th of July seemed like the most appropriate time to bring […]

Indonesian Corn Chowder

Is this really Indonesian? I’m not sure. Is it good? YES. (And I’m just calling it Indonesian Corn Chowder because Healthy Hedonist did.) Before we get to the recipe though, I have a really important topic to discuss: Lunch. I am a total leftover person. I think I inherited […]

Fresh corn and chile cornbread

I thought this recipe would be a huge flop. 2 eggs, buttermilk, oil and cream (which I replaced with yogurt) and only 1 cup of cornmeal? I was incredibly dubious as it went into the oven, but what I pulled out 25 minutes later turned out to be some […]

Black Eyed Pea Salad

Not being from the South, I don’t think I ate a single black eyed pea until a few months ago. I’m not jumping-up-and-down excited about them, but they’re not bad, and since we have a couple bags of them to use up, I’ve been trying to figure out what […]

Black bean, corn and sweet potato cakes

I have a thing for black beans, particularly in burger/cake/patty form. And since I discovered how easy it is to cook beans in the slow cooker, I now have some variety of bean cooked and ready to go in the fridge at all times. This week has been pretty […]

Southwestern Pinto and Roasted Vegetable Soup

When we moved into this house back in December, Mike bought a GIANT bag of pinto beans. Since I didn’t think I really liked pinto beans, I thought it would just be that thing that is still sitting there when it’s time to move out (whenever that may be), […]

Chiles Rellenos

This dinner was all Mike’s idea, and it’s one of the best meals we’ve had in ages (although I seem to be saying that a lot lately… I have always had a problem with overuse of hyperbole.) ANYWAY. We’d both been talking about chiles rellenos, and how they’re pretty […]

Trinidad Corn Soup

I love how so many things in life just seem to work out. I have to admit, when I signed up for Adopt-A-Blogger #4 I was a little skeptical. After all, how do I qualify as a mentor? Yeah, I’ve been doing this for over a year, but I’d […]
