Fresh corn just screams summer to me. But plain old boiled corn can be a snooze day after day. I like to boost corn with a few ingredients, and there’s no better corn than the cheesy, spicy corn on the cob served at Café Habana in New York City. They’re known for their corn coated in Mexican cheese, chili powder, and lime juice.
There's nothing like a cocktail to start (or end) a weekend morning. And a perfect Bloody Mary is my favorite. (Bar trivia: the Bloody Mary was invented during the 1920s at Harry's Bar in Paris.) But while I may have a stocked food pantry, I rarely have the ingredients for a Bloody Mary on hand and my secret weapon is Stirrings Simple Bloody Mary Mix.
