Homemade Pumpkin Cornbread

There was a point in time where one of the only places you saw pumpkin was in pumpkin pie, but those days are long gone.

Tomato and Garlic Bruschetta

Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta

I grow tomatoes in my garden during the summer, and that typically means that my kitchen is completely overflowing with tomatoes. My tomatoes seem to ripen in waves, so when I have a fresh batch, I usually rush to use them up before the next wave hits. I make pasta sauce with fresh tomatoes and store it in the freezer for later use. I make ... Read More »

Mozzarella and Basil Bread

Mozzarella and Basil Bread

I tend to make a lot of dishes that involve tomatoes and basil during the summer, when my garden is full of fresh tomatoes. Caprese salad is one of the simplest and easiest ways to combine these ingredients, which pairs tomato and basil with fresh mozzarella cheese. This Mozzarella and Basil Bread was inspired by caprese salads. You’ll notice that it doesn’t use tomato in ... Read More »

How to make Mexican Grilled Street Corn

Grilled Street Corn

When it is in season, fresh sweet corn is amazing no matter how you serve it. I’ve had it in dozens of ways, from raw when it was picked just minutes before to cooked into a velvety creamed corn dish. My favorite way to enjoy corn, however, is grilled corn on the cob – and better still is Mexican Grilled Street Corn. This style of ... Read More »
