Blueberry Coconut Cream Cake

Sunday, January 17, 2010

It was Angie’s birthday and Angie is a Taste Bud, a term I’ve given to friends who share my love of food and have impeccable taste. I get restaurant recommendations from her all the time. You can thank her for introducing us to Degustation, Eletarria (closed now), The Red Head, and many more. She’s no stranger to the bakery scene either, so my brain was cranking. What would it take to impress her?

Cambodian Mexi-Corn

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

Elote, roasted corn on the cob, is a popular Mexican street food. We sometimes see them at our street fairs here. They are often smothered in butter, mayonnaise, or sour cream, sometimes lime juice, and then topped with chili powder and cotija cheese.  If you’re in New York, Cafe Habana 17 Prince Street, New York, NY 10012 is known for theirs.

A couple of months ago, we tried a very interesting variation at Num Pang. The innovative creation had a South East Asian flair, suitable to their Cambodian Style sandwich shop, with coconut flakes and a chili mayo. Checking their website now, it doesn’t seem to be on the menu anymore but you can easily and cheaply make this yourself. It’s suitable as a side dish or afternoon snack, but even more perfect for a barbecue.

Due to the extreme 93+ degree weather, I decided to microwave the corn, my default in the summer. (It works marvelously!) If you want to stick to the classic elote style, feel free to grill or roast the corn.

2. Remove outer layers of the corn husk, leaving just a few inner leaves. Wrap a wet paper towel around the corn. Microwave for about 90 seconds (depending on size of corn). Turn it over and microwave for another 90 seconds (depending on size of corn).

Simplified German Chocolate Cake

Simplified German Chocolate Cake

We had a little German themed dinner with pretzels, schnitzel, cabbage, and roasted potatoes so I wanted to follow through with a German dessert. I was feeling a bit lazy and decided to simplify German Chocolate Cake, a lot. I’m a little embarrassed by just how easy this was to make.
