Lime and Black Pepper BBQ’ed Corn

Sunday in Toronto….33 degree’s! What better way to enjoy the heat than to have a sizzling summer soiree with friends.

I’m prepping a whole BBQ menu but the Lime and Black Pepper BBQed Corn is going to be the dish that everyone is going to want to make themselves! It’s so easy and it’s a really delicious and unique way to serve your grilled corn. Trust me you will not be disappointed.

Ingredients List:  Makes 8 servings.

  • 4 cobs of corn cut in half
  • 3 limes
  • A healthy amount of pepper

Along with the corn. I served 3 different types of Cheese that I got while I was in The County. I am totally in love with Fifth Town’s Petal Luna Hard Goat Cheese. It is incredible!

Anyway, I hope you get to jump in a lake, a pool, in a sprinkler…something to beat the heat.

Mexican Foodventure #1: Corn on a Stick!

I just spent an unforgettable week in Mexico City. I was staying with some dear friends of mine and since they  are locals,  I had the opportunity to see, try and do things that a tourist wouldn’t necessarily have the chance to do in another circumstance.

Along with all the sights and debauchery, it was my mission to eat as much of the local fare as possible. I will admit that it was a hilarious week of good, spicy and downright nasty! On every street corner you see a vendor of some sort and quite often you see people grilling corn. This past summer in Veracruz, I witnessed a disgusted attempt at corn in a cup: (which is the same as corn on a stick…but in a cup!) and was a bit weary but figured i might as well try it for myself…

In the end, I never finished my corn on a stick. I will admit that the concept is cool and I would order it again BUT without the Queso Blanco, as a cheese lover I was appalled….I mean, don’t call this stuff cheese…It’s more like dehydrated rotten feta. Okay, i know i sound harsh but i take my cheese very seriously. I wish that i could order corn on a stick in Toronto; what a perfect snack on a summer day.

Speaking of summer….i hope everyone is staying warm.; It was quite a shocker getting off the plane last night. But I have the perfect remedy and will post it for y’all this weekend.

i hate christmas-christmas cookies!

This year, i have the time and the lack of funds to make gifts for everyone on my list and so what better than the gift of cookies. Simple, delicious AND bonus: they make the house smell heavenly. I had a whole bunch of limes left over from my Holidays Soiree and so I thought that I would put them to use with this cookie recipe:

Ingredients List:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter-soft
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp of Vanilla
  • the juice from 3 limes
  • 2 tbsps of lime zest
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 bag of white chocolate chips

The result is light, fluffy and simple…*makes about 8 dozen small cookies

These cookies are very subtle and light tasting. It’s a little misleading (i mean a whole bag of white chocolate chips seems insanely sweet) but the lime juice cuts the sweetness of the white chocolate. If i decide to make more of these bad boys, i think i will add some dried cranberries to the mix.


If you decide to venture let me know how it turns out.

 

I’m off to finish packaging my treats and to start delivering.
