End of Summer Corn Chowder

End of Summer Corn Chowder

There’s nothing that says the end of summer more (except maybe of a glut of tomatoes – have you seen all my tomato posts, lol!) than the end of Sweet Corn season. It’s a sad day when the abundance of corn withers away to a dribble, then there’s nothing left but a few lonely ears in the bottom of the huge boxes that stand in so many produce departments. That’s when I think of my End of Summer Corn Chowder.

Hot & Smokin Po Boy Spice

Hot & Smokin’ Po’ Boy Spice

When I make my marvelous Shrimp Po’ Boys (adapted from Tyler Florence) I always take a minute to whip up extra of this little spice mixture used in those Po’ Boys. I call it Hot & Smokin’ Po’ Boy Spice. Actually, I don’t limit this spice mixture to just Po’ Boys; I’ve started mixing it up even when I am not making them and started using it on all kinds of things. I like it so much it’s kinda become a signature “house” seasoning at my place.

Ratatouille

Here’s the thing about Ratatouille – it’s originally a Provencal vegetable stew, and like any stew, just calls out for the personalized touch. Don’t like eggplant – who cares? Peppers aren’t your thing? Use something else. I think you’ll love this version, roughly adapted from Tyler Florence. We do.
