This Mexican Street Corn is covered in crema, grated Parmesan, lime juice and feta cheese.  It's messy...and VERY tasty!Officially, there are just about two weeks of Summer left for those of us here in the Northern hemisphere.  I don’t know about you, but I feel like Fall started this past weekend.  School buses are back out in full force, and I think our thermometer dipped into the upper 40’s last night.  I even have a light scattering of leaves on my front lawn already.  I absolutely love Fall (it’s my favorite season), but I feel like Summer was way too short this year.  Continue Reading »

BLT Salad Pasta: Tastes just like your favorite summer sandwich...just in pasta salad form!  Perfect for summer barbecues!Back when my wife and I lived in Atlanta, we grew tomatoes in our backyard like it was our job.  We planted a small garden on the side of our house, and every year we had a bumper crop of tomatoes.  And thanks to the warm weather down South, our tomato plants started growing in late February…and didn’t stop until early November.  Seriously.  We literally ate tomatoes all the time.  And we gave them away to everyone we knew.  And we still had too many tomatoes.  The solution?  BLT’s.  Delicious BLT’s.
