You can whip up a batch of this simple, gorgeous soup any time because frozen peas are quite lovely when pureed. But as fresh peas come into the market, make it then too, and enjoy the essence of spring, garnished with fresh mint and chives, cold from the fridge.

Thanksgiving kicked off when my dad pulled up to the house last Tuesday afternoon, fresh from a quail hunt in Tennessee. My stepmom Susanna flew in a few hours later from Sheridan, Wyoming, their now home. My house and kitchen were immediately improved.

This dish is inspired by a roasted squash dish I had at 112 Eatery a few years back. If you love butternut squash as much as I do, I suggest planning to have this as an entree, perhaps with a salad. It is not a light dish, although it doesn’t have to be heavy if…

Grilled Corn Salsa

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 23, 2011 at 5:27pm

Sweet is good, but salty-sweet is better. As Minnesota State Fair goers know, grilling makes corn even cornier, drying the kernels a bit and concentrating their flavor to sweet, chewy heaven. Sliced off the cob, tossed with crunchy onion, fresh cilantro, a squirt of lime – and salt of course! – this salsa is just…
