Caramel corn whoopie pies…YUM, right?! My mom found this recipe in Cuisine at Home last year and every time we bring the whoopie pies to a party, they’re a hit. The fluffy, cornbread-esque cookie tastes even more incredible paired with the caramel filling. These are a must-make dessert, I promise!

I’m off to New York tomorrow for work and can’t wait to eat my way through the city. First stop? Shake Shack, of course!

Now that I’m settled into my new apartment, I’m finally back in the kitchen! I was craving risotto and hadn’t made it in a while, so I decided to whip up this sweet corn risotto. My go-to recipe is Giada’s basic risotto in her Everyday Italian cookbook. The recipe is delicious as is, but made even better by adding sweet corn, asparagus or peas.

IMG_3943This burrito is the epitome of a fresh, summer meal (unlike my last post). The sweetness of the chicken and corn compliments the slightly spicy tomatillo sauce. Though the recipe was somewhat laborious, it was completely worth it. All of the components were delicious on their own, and even better when combined.

Not having work on Monday really threw me off this week–I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday. I did, however, enjoy the long weekend and spent part of it at home with my grandma. We had a wonderful time together hanging out, shopping and eating (this quinoa salad included)…oh, and dealing with my flat tire for most of Saturday afternoon. I got to experience my first ride in a tow truck, though. Woohoo!

I have a couple of people to thank, so I’ll make this quick. In need of a healthy and hearty side dish? Filler for a burrito? Topping for crostini? Dip for chips? Look no more my friends. I leave you in good hands with this recipe.

First, I want to mention the Fairy Hobmother from Appliances Online, who visits blogs and grants wishes. A while back, I left a comment on Angie‘s blog over at Angie’s Recipes, who had just been visited by the Fairy Hobmother. Unexpectedly, I received an e-mail from the Fairy who offered me an Amazon gift card, so I can treat myself to something nice.

Make a wish in your comment on this post and you too could get a visit. Good luck and thank you again, Fairy Hobmother!

Also, thank you to Patricia over at Belle on the Boulevard for passing the Versatile Blogger Award to me, and to Erin over at Dinners, Dishes and Desserts for passing the Butterfly Award to me. xx

By Uncle Steve

This bean dip is the perfect appetizer or side dish for any get together or party. My Uncle Steve whipped up this dip for our 4th of July party, and once I took a bite, I knew I had to make it again. Though extremely simple, the dish doesn’t lack in flavor–the habanero salsa gives it just the right amount of kick.

My uncle is always coming up with new and inventive recipes, which we get to enjoy when he visits us here in California from Ohio. I was sad to see him, my aunt and cousin leave last week, but we all had such a great time together, from shopping to laying out to BBQing, etc. Keep an eye out for more of my Uncle Steve’s recipes!

Thanks for holding the tortilla in the photo, mom. ;)

Corn on the cob was my archenemy in middle school. As many people know, eating corn with braces doesn’t bode well. Therefore, my mom being the lovely mother she was (and is), always sliced it off of the cob for me. But alas, I eventually got my braces off and the eating process became much easier.

Though I love classic-style corn on the cob with salt and butter, this honey-ancho chile butter really spices things up. It’s sweet with a pleasant kick from the chile powder. This corn is a great side dish for any summer meal.
