Mexican Street Corn Salad recipe

Maybe it’s the thought of warm weather as our family prepares to head to Arizona for Spring Training, or maybe it’s the fact that I haven’t started packing yet and needed another excuse to procrastinate, but yesterday I decided that I MUST have Mexican Street Corn NOW. Obviously it’s February and I’m in Texas, far from fresh corn season, but dang it, I was determined to eat some charred corn…

The shifting schedule of baseball season make it easy to get lazy in the kitchen. If I’m not careful, I can easily snack my way through the days and rarely sit down to a real meal. That’s why I love making cold salads like this one. I can throw it together one afternoon, then eat it for the next few days. This salad is the perfect mix of summer flavors…

Updated Gluten-Free in Phoenix (and why you always need to take responsibility for your own food safety)

Celiac Disease, Health April 9, 2015

Two years ago I posted a list of my favorite gluten-free restaurants in Phoenix. I wanted to share the places where I feel safe with anyone who is in the area and needs a good gluten-free meal. I had been meaning to update the list for a few months now because I have expanded my own personal favorite list, and of course restaurants open and close every day. Then I…
