roasted sweet corn

lime roasted sweet corn salsa — happy Memorial Day weekend!

  • double as you need — makes ~4 cups:
  • 2 ears of sweet corn
  • 2 limes
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 ripe mango
  • 4 Tbsp fresh cilantro
  • 2 shallots
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp jalapeño

To relax, Hoyd and I popped over to Peekskill for some new sights and relaxing quiet. I had a hankering to go hiking up in Cold Spring like last weekend, but the sweetest old lady on the train started telling us about her town — and we got off early at Peekskill. The whole day turned out nothing like we imagined — found ourselves trapped by the rain in a funny restaurant — but we got sanctuary outside of the city and enjoyed some sweet time together!

fresh green!

rosemary butter with steamed artichoke

rosemary garlic butter with steamed artichoke — mom visits!

  • 3 artichokes
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 1 medium garlic clove
  • 1 stick or 1/2 cup of salted butter
  • 1 tsp of fresh lemon juice

This past week Mom visited, and I tell you what, we had such a good time! My favorite part was riding the scenic train up to Cold Springs, NY in search of a lil’ adventure. Oh my god, I love this woman. Besides her impeccable taste, class, and easy grin, she has a fellow heart for hiking. I’ve nowhere near the experience as this native Californian, what with her always backpacking the mountains as a teenager, but what I lack in experience I make up for in enthusiasm — and back-up snacks. (We did run out of water, but that’s another story!)

off on the journey!

Cheers to the first product review! Necessary legal biz: the following is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Attune Foods. All opinions, silly or otherwise, are mine.
Attune Foods
Let me just break open the package by saying: I’m impressed by the clean quality of all their products, and proud to recommend ’em. Their Crispy Brown Rice Cereal in particular is all organic, gluten-free, non-GMO, and whole grain — as are most of their other Erewhon products too! I mean, we should nominate cereal for the Nobel next time.

cereal goodness

boxed Erewhon!

(I highly suggest trying out their other flavors too. For the milk-in-a-bowl type, my favorite’s the Crispy Brown Rice with Mixed Berries!)
