Miriam’s Avocado, Corn and Cucumber Salad

Miriam decided to bring a salad to add to Sunday’s chicken dinner. She was rather vague about what she used as a dressing. She has been very busy at work, but she may fill in the blanks later.

Karl’s Salt and Pepper Barbecued Corn

Daughter Miriam has been sick lately and cannot eat anything in the pepper or lily families— no chili powders, garlic, leeks, onion, or peppers (even bell peppers).  This has made Sunday dinners quite a challenge lately. I needed to make something that was both flavorful, but without the things that would make her feel ill.

Karl’s Za’atar Grilled Corn

One thing was requested by many for our Labor Day barbecue was corn on the cob. I am making koobideh hamburgers, so I though some za’atar sprinkled on the corn would fit the Fusion Middle Eastern theme. Since I am less fond of  corn, I break the ears into smaller pieces—they are easier to eat and everyone knows that two small pieces have fewer calories than one big piece.

Karl’s Grilled Chili Corn

One thing that son-in-law Chris requested for his birthday meal was corn on the cob. I am making beef and beans, so I though some chili powder would be the spice to use. Since I was making a big pot of Santa Maria beans, I did not want a whole ear per person, cutting them into quarter seemed the solution.

Karl’s Corn, Poblano and Crab Tamales

23andMe is a powerful, but dangerous tool. Jan has assumed she had one father, when in fact there were two. According to her genes, Jan’s ancestry is ¼ Iberian and ¼ Cora—although they refer to themselves as Naáyarite—an indigenous tribe that lives in the mountainous region of along the Jalisco / Nayarit border of north Pacific coast Mexico—although much of Jan’s extended family has moved to the coast.

Karl’s Garlic Lemon Barbecued Corn

I am barbecuing chicken wings for this Sunday’s Dinner and I needed a vegetable side dish. While Jan like corn on the cob, much of what you find in the stores has already gone moldy—pull back the top leaves and take a sniff. My wife will not touch it when it is that state. Fortunately, there is an Summer vegetable stand near us that has really fresh corn.

Karl’s Corn Chowder with Langoustine

This is Jan’s birthday week and around this house birthday celebrations tend to get stretched out for a week. Her birthday is in the middle of a busy week, Wednesday, so her main feast will be this Sunday. I was planning on making her favorite, corn chowder with crayfish.

Karl’s Corn Salsa

Fish tacos have become a weekday meal at our house. If I do not have a lot of time, they can be simply topped with some cilantro, guacamole, and diced onion. If I have more time, I will make pickled red cabbage and a salsa to go with the fish.

Karl’s Moroccan Barbecued Corn and Peach Salad

I am doing Morocco this week and Miriam said she had seen a recipe for Moroccan corn and stone fruit salad. She really liked my last corn salad and wanted something similar. I was not able to find the recipe she had read, so I did what seemed right to me.

Karl’s Garlic Barbecued Corn and Orange Salad

I am making Vera Cruz Fish Tacos and I decided that I wanted to add a side salad. I could have just served my garlic BBQ corn as a side dish, but I had two navel oranges left over after making a batch of orange infused sugar. Combining the two seemed like a good way to use up the leftovers.
