Mexican Street Corn

Maybe the world doesn’t need another post on “Mexican Street Corn” or what is really our American version based off of the classic “Elotes.” I do, though – or I’m hitting up sites when I’m making dinner, trying to find the particulars. You’d think I’d be able to remember grill 8 to 10 minutes, lol!

Enchiladas con Carne

Those of you who know me know I’m kind of a sucker for Mexican food. Or Southwestern. Or Tex-Mex. When I saw these old school Tex-Mex type enchiladas pop up in an email from the New York Times, I was all over it. Enchiladas con Carne from El Real Tex-Mex in Houston.

Peach Upside Down Cake

It seems like I’ve been doing a lot with desserts lately, partially because I updated all my dessert menus which took weeks! So, in way of saying thanks for your patience about post after post, I’m posting another dessert! Peach Upside Down Cake.

Takeout Style Green Beans

Just in case you look at these pictures and think I’m nuts, these green beans, sautéed till slightly blistered, then tossed with soy, honey and garlic stole the show the other night at dinner.

The Original Fat Burning Cabbage Soup

Awhile back, someone mentioned Cabbage Soup – in a rather derogatory way. Funny thing is, I love Cabbage Soup! Which isn’t all cabbage, by the way. There’s lot’s of other good stuff in it, too.

Thai Slaw with Peanut Dressing

In the summer heat (and it has been so hot & so humid, here) I can hardly get enough cool, crunchy salads. Here’s a fantastic crunchy little salad with a little bit of a Thai twist. That this is more American Thai  than Thai doesn’t detract from the utter deliciousness.

Thai Chicken Burgers

I’m sitting in what seems to be the red meat capital of the world, folks. Right smack dab in the Midwest. At my folk’s in a small town outside of Sioux Falls. (We even went to see bull riding last winter!) So it might be considered a bit of a stretch to serve my fave octogenarians a chicken burger. And a chicken burger with Thai flavors, no less!
