Grilled Mexican Street Corn

Chillin’ and grilling… mouthwatering Mexican Street corn {aka elote}. The combination of the sweet corn with a creamy, cheesy spicy mixture is so tasty : )

Four years ago, I experienced this delicious side at a restaurant and ordered another to go. It was that good! Perfect for a snack or side and so easy to make. πŸ˜ƒπŸ’šπŸŒ½ #streetcorn #staysafe

Between you and I ….it took me awhile to perfect tender “grilled” corn without completely charring. Peel back the corn husks, remove the silk and close the husk back over the corn. Wrap tightly in foil and grill for 30 minutes at 350-400 degrees.

Recipe by Seeded at the Table

Ingredients: 5-6 ears of corn, husked – 1/4 mayonnaise – 2 TBSP sour cream or Greek yogurt – 1/2 TSP garlic salt – juice from 1 lime – 1/4 cup grated cotija cheese {or feta, Parmesan or queso fresco} – 1 TSP smoked paprika or Chile powder – chopped cilantro, optional

Easy Crab Cakes

Lump crab cakes! I absolutely love crab : ) Lump crab, a touch of seasoning & pan fried. Plate of deliciousness!

Everyone has their version of the best crab cake. Crab should always be the star! Seasoning is great but I keep it simple. The best crab cake I ever ate… was in Maryland! It was truly the best — wish I lived there “the best”. Where is the best crab cake you ever had?

I made a side salad with mixed lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers & balsamic vinaigrette. Plus mango avocado salsa. Happy Sunday & stay safe πŸ™‚πŸ’›πŸŒŸ #sundaycooking #crabtastic

No Churn Cherry Chocolate Ice Cream

πŸ’ Cherries + chocolate = Deliciousness! Creamy, loaded with ripe cherries & dark chocolate pieces : )

This is my first time making no churn ice cream and it’s scrumptious! Just 4 ingredients ~ this flavor combination is similar to the popular Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia. Which I love!! I’m already thinking of other flavors. Add whatever your heart desires. What is your favorite ice cream?

Cherries are so photogenic! Dreaming of summer treats with the warmer weather. Plus, our local supermarkets are out of several baking products {flour, yeast}. I miss baking but no bake desserts can be just as good! Get scooping & enjoy! #cherrychocolate #icecreamtime πŸ’β€οΈπŸ¨

Strawberry Coconut Smoothie Bowl

Strawberry coconut smoothie! Frozen banana slices, strawberries & coconut milk : )

I’ve been making smoothies/nice cream more frequently during the past 30 days. Nice cream is a healthier version of ice cream. I’m trying different flavors & love this Caribbean flavored combo. Sadly, it doesn’t come with the gorgeous Caribbean view. Loaded with vitamins & nutrients that are important to our health. It’s simple, delicious & healthy!

2 frozen bananas, sliced – 1/2 cup strawberries, sliced- 4 TBSP coconut milk – shredded coconut optional. Blend until creamy & smooth : )

Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

We all deserve a cookie! Brown butter chocolate chip cookies are ridiculously good. The nutty brown butter flavor takes it to another level of deliciousness : )

Inspired by my Mom, she loves chocolate chip cookies {well…it might be tied with Oreos}. She was diagnosed with dementia 20 years ago then progressively worse to advanced Alzheimer’s. Due to the pandemic, her residence is not allowing visitors. Once restrictions are lifted, I am visiting her with a big hug & a batch of these cookies!

Back to the cookie — If you’re new to brown butter recipes, it’s not difficult just be sure to carefully watch {and stir} the brown butter to avoid burning. Your loved ones will thank you ~ they’re that good & hard to resist!

The breakfast taco/quesadilla is super easy & quick. I used cheddar cheese with crumbled bacon & a side of fruit. Add your choice of favorites — guacamole, salsa, bacon or chorizo.

Inspired by Best Recipe Box

Ingredients: 1 flour tortilla- 1 to 2 large eggs – salt & pepper to taste – 1 TBSP butter – 3 TBSP shredded cheese of your choice

Directions: Beat egg, season with salt and pepper. Heat skillet on medium heat. Melt the butter. Add the egg and lightly swirl it around the skillet until it forms a round shape. Allow the egg to slightly cook around the edges. While center of the egg is still wet, lay a tortilla on top of the egg. Lightly release the eggs from the edges of the pan. Once the egg edges are set, flip the egg and tortilla together so the tortilla lays down on the pan. Sprinkle cheese on top of the egg. Allow to cook for 1 minute or less. Fold the tortilla over and continue cooking both sides of the tortilla on the pan until it’s slightly golden brown. Serve warm with hot sauce, guacamole or salsa. Enjoy!
