This creamy corn dip has had quite a few repeat performances during this summer’s BBQ parties, although I don’t think anyone would object to a rustic platter of dip and warm bread. Fresh corn, cilantro, cream cheese, and a touch of spice served over grilled flatbreads, its the perfect appetizer for a summer party. So invite some friends over, grab a drink and enjoy what we have left of these hot summer days. Continue reading

This is one of the many post that have stayed in draft format on this blog due to my inescapable ability to miss the tiny window tied to holiday themed posts. Work had kept me working longer hours than usual with less free time and even less of a desire to be sitting in front of a computer during said time (wait, that hasn’t changed…).

Perhaps into a warm mug of mulled cider. Or would that be too much apple cider, or is there even such a thing as too much apple cider? Apple cider, another seasonal favorite of mine. Thick, and super sweet, served ice cold or piping hot, it wouldn’t be Autumn without it. Continue reading

Okay, maybe not love but pretty darn close. A rich chocolatey base with a soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie nestled on top, better know as a Brookie or Brookster. Originally named the formed by a bakery in Brooklyn, NY who initially concocted this creation. I must admit I had never even heard of them ( I know, I’m a little behind with the times) up until a few months ago as I walked around our neighborhood’s newly opened Williams-Sonoma and discovered a Brookster pan. I was immediately enthralled by the idea and new i just had to make these. Continue reading
