Cajun-Style Grilled Corn Salad

I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am to have a backyard again… After spending years living in brick apartment buildings, I’ve been soaking up every second I can outside! It feels like a luxury being able to sit under a tree with a book without having to get in my car and drive to a park. Jeff and I have also been learning how to grill! He found a perfectly good Weber grill on Craigslist, cleaned it up, and we’ve been grilling up burgers and veggies over the past few weeks.

Our friends Kelly and Pat came to visit from Toronto this past weekend. Kelly is one of my nearest and dearest friends in the world, and her culinary knowledge and talent never ceases to amaze me! Before I met Kelly, the only green vegetable I ate was iceberg lettuce. So I blame my current, much, MUCH more sophisticated palate on her. 😉

Her visit coincided with an invitation from OXO to participate in their #WhatAGrillWants blogger campaign, which was perfect because Jeff and I invited a bunch of people over for a cookout. OXO sent a bunch of new grilling tools to try out – a bladed meat tenderizer, a little salad dressing shaker, a corn stripper, a silicone basting brush, and 16 inch tongs.

OXO #WhatAGrillWants

I’m not quite sure what Kelly and Jeff are thumb wrestling over, but it was a fun moment in the kitchen as we prepared everything for the grill! Using a bladed meat tenderizer was interesting… I grew up with my mom and grandmother using a fork to do it, so I wasn’t quite sure how beneficial this tool would be. With 50 blades in the OXO bladed meat tenderizer, we sure saved some time! This tool is used like a stamp, and you have to push down really hard to get the blades through the meat. (With 50 blades in a tool, I’m GLAD it takes some muscle to press it down!)

OXO also sent a super cute and handy little salad dressing shaker, which we used to make a marinade for the pork.

OXO #WhatAGrillWants

I love this salad dressing shaker! You can’t really see it in the photo, but one side of the cup has measuring lines for cups, and the other has lines for ounces. And the cap has an airtight, leakproof seal, so it’s perfect for shaking up salad dressings or marinades. I wouldn’t hesitate bringing this to other cookouts or picnics!

While the pork marinaded, I decided to throw together a Cajun-style grilled corn salad. I looooove Mexican-style corn on the cob, but don’t really enjoy the mess that comes along with eating it. And I’ve been dying to use this delicious Cajun spice blend I picked up at the New Orleans School of Cooking during a recent vacation.

Onto the grill the corn went. We turned the corn every couple of minutes, and left them on the grill just long enough to get a nice, charred look. The OXO tongs came in really handy here – the tips don’t have sharp edges like a lot of other grill tools, so later on when we grilled other veggies wrapped in foil, Jeff didn’t accidentally poke holes through the foil with the tongs.

Then we got to use my favorite tool out of the whole kit – the corn stripper. This tool is so easy to use! There’s a blade on the bottom, which cuts the kernels off the cob, and they collect inside a little cup attached to it instead of spilling all over the place.

You can get the recipe at the bottom of this post! It’s a super easy cookout recipe everyone will love. It can be served warm right off the grill or chilled. I made a little more this week with an ear of leftover corn, and tossed it in with a regular salad. So good!

Anyway, the tongs came in handy again when it was time to put the pork on the grill. The basting brush was pretty cool to use as well – there are gaps in the center bristles that trap liquids, so we were able to spread a lot more marinade on the roasts.

It was so fun cooking outside with wonderful friends we don’t get to see very often. It’s just what we do. 🙂 Thanks to OXO for making our cookout a little more fun and easy!

2013 Boston Red Sox Rolling Rally – Inside Fenway Park

After a decade of being on the wait list for season tickets, Jeff wavered back and forth about spending the money when the opportunity finally presented itself this year. He took a gamble, and we found ourselves sitting in section 3 of the empty grandstands during some very cold April and May games. Fenway Park’s sold out game record streak ended – the stands were half full, and it wasn’t because of the weather.

We didn’t recognize most of the names on the roster, but they played a good game. Little by little personalities emerged, they helped lift our city up during some dark times, and they kept winning. But it seemed like no one really paid attention until August. Was it because of how the team ended the previous season? Or was is because of what Boston experienced in April? Or a mixture of both? Late in the summer, the stands became full again; fans cheering our team on.

Boston has celebrated eight sports championships since 2002. The 2002 Patriots Super Bowl Parade was the only one I ever attended – I started working in TV news that week and I assisted directed TV coverage for the rest of them. I worked the night when the Red Sox won in 2004, and I was out of town when they won in 2007. It felt incredibly special to be in town and off the clock this year for everything.

On Thursday, Jeff received an email invitation for season ticket holders to gather at Fenway Park for the rolling rally kick off celebration. Little did we know how much fun it would end up being! The rest of this post features photos both of us took.

Weekend Adventures in Burlington, Vermont

I’m soooo behind in blog posts! How was your summer? How is it that it’s already over?! This summer was filled with weekends far away from the city. Cape Cod, Nantucket, Portland, and my favorite of all, Burlington, Vermont. Everything is greener, the air is crisp, and the food is fresher because most of it is sourced from local farms.

Our first stop on the way to Burlington, Vermont was at King Arthur Flour. What a beautiful place! One side of the building has an education center where you can take all sorts of baking classes. I’d love to go back sometime for one! On the other side of the building is an enormous King Arthur Flour store, which you can find every single flour under the sun. (Well, at least it seems that way!) There’s also a cool cafe to pick up lunch, or a sweet treat.

Continuing our trek up north, how could we possibly *not* tour Ben and Jerry’s?

Visiting Ben and Jerry's in Vermont

So many flavors! We got to see how all the milk, cream, and sugar get combined together with candy, fudge, and other fixings to create your favorite Ben and Jerry’s flavors. After having a sample of their new salted caramel ice cream, I had to indulge in a full serving!

Visiting Ben and Jerry's in Vermont

Next stop was at Magic Hat Brewery. It’s unlike any other brewery tour I’ve been on. After watching a really fun film about the company, you walk though a self guided tour of the brewery. It basically involves standing on a platform above the production floor, looking at this:

Burlington, Vermont

There are multiple computer screens on the viewing platform that allow you to identify each piece of equipment, and learn how the brewing and bottling process happens. We were lucky to be there on a bottling day, so the floor was full of activity!

One of the most fantastic meals we had in Burlington was at Sweetwaters. There are a ton of restaurants in downtown Burlington which offer gluten-free menus, but we especially enjoyed Sweetwaters. There was just something about the food in Burlington… Everything was so incredibly fresh because ingredients are sourced from local farms, which are identified on the menus. Fresher ingredients means better tasting food. Bacon wrapped scallops? Yes, please!

Where to eat in Burlington, Vermont

We were slowly running out of time in Burlington, and we really wanted to do two things – go for a hike, and visit a farm. So we did a little of both at Shelburne Farms. Shelburne Farms is a non-profit education organization with a 1,400 acre working farm on Lake Champlain. We walked about a half mile in before taking in the beautiful views and petting some really adorable farm animals.

Can I go back now? Please?

Food Blog Forum – Brunch at Whole Foods in Orlando

Food Blog Forum

 The brunch at Whole Foods in Orlando gets a separate post because I was able to photograph food in decent light. (And the other posts were getting lengthy… 😉 )

Mason jar parfaits, BBQ pork on habanero corn bread, quinoa breakfast salad, strawberry caprese… After all the excitement of the weekend, a leisurely Sunday brunch was a great way to unwind and spend more time with new friends. I’m not going to “talk” too much in this post… I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.

Food Blog Forum Orlando 2013 – Recap Part 2

If you want to catch up, Part 1 is here.

I forgot to post a few photos in my first post about the Food Blog Forum!

Food Blog Forum Grand Floridian

Conference Breakfast, and hanging out with Kasey from Kasey’s Kitchen.

Following Todd and Diane’s talk, we were treated to a special lunch. Disney has a new Mickey Check menu developed especially for kids, and it helps families easily find nutritious meals.

Nutrition, allergies, and kids’ tastes were all taken into consideration, and most of the food is made from scratch. Food stations were set up all over the room with small plates of each item. Mac and cheese, fish sticks (not fried), beef tenderloin, gluten-free chicken pot pie, and a huge dessert table. (Kevin Barron of Pee Dee Foodie has a fantastic podcast, featuring interviews with the Disney chefs about each dish! You definitely should check it out.) The gluten-free chicken pot pie and the pork tenderloin were easily my favorites! The fish was geared towards the person I was as a kid – an extremely picky eater who will only eat bland food. 😉

Food Blog Forum lunch

There was one scary moment that most of us weren’t aware of. I met Rebecca from Foodie With Family at the bowling event, and chatted with her several times throughout the conference day. I had no idea she choked during lunch. One of the Disney chefs saved her life. Rebecca wrote a wonderful post about her experience, recognizing signs of choking, and what to do, so please, read it!!!

Following lunch, we had three more sessions. One was with Tim Warzecha from Disney Imagineering who designs restaurants around the parks. I had no idea how much work goes into every single detail at Disney, and walked away with a new appreciation for it. All the details are part of the story, which we can apply to our own work. We also heard from Elise Bauer of Simply Recipes, Babette Papaj of Bake Space, and Erik Deutsch of Excel PR about technology, the importance of having a site that can be viewed on mobile devices, and how Pinterest is the #1 driver of traffic to food blogs. Elise said if she was starting today, she’s focus on Pinterest rather than SEO and with good reason – personally, the majority of referral traffic to my website comes from Pinterest. Amazing, isn’t it? The last session was with Jeff Houck (Tampa Tribune), David Leite (Leite’s Culinaria), Julie Deily (The Little Kitchen), and Lindsey Landis (Love and Olive Oil), who discussed grassroots community building.

Then it was time for more fun! A quick dinner in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, then off to our dessert party and viewing of Fantastmic! Water, fireworks, music, movies, fire! Sensory overload, but so incredibly fun. And we had time to play in the parks afterwards.

The final event of the conference was a brunch at Whole Foods in Orlando…which I’ll devote a separate post to because of the photography. 🙂

Food Blog Forum Orlando 2013 – Recap Part 1

I spent last weekend at the Food Blog Forum in Walt Disney World, surrounded by 125 other talented, fun, energetic folks. I arrived at the Grand Floridian a little too late to meet up with Kasey from Kasey’s Kitchen (a fellow broadcast journalism alum from Emerson!) at Epcot, but had plenty of time to wander the resort and eventually settle down with a book on the balcony of the hotel room. I honestly don’t remember the last time I sat outside with nothing to do and just read a book… It’s one of those simple pleasures – nowhere to rush off to, no loud noise, no negativity, no distractions, and plenty of sunshine and warmth… An hour of that was exactly what I needed after weeks of non-stop work. The introvert in me really, really needed it…


Hotel Resorts at Walt Disney World

Over the past few years, I’ve really been pushing myself to attend events on my own and meet new people. I find the more I put myself in these kinds of situations, the easier it becomes. While I can’t say the welcome reception on Friday night was a breeze, the mojitos and delicious food helped quite a bit. 😉 I was also really excited to see Diane Cu and Todd Porter, as well as Julie from The Little Kitchen. I met them last May during one of Todd and Diane’s photography workshops.

Following the reception, I headed over to Splitsville in Downtown Disney. The kind folks at Disney invited myself and a few other bloggers to go bowling and try out their menu. I really liked the set up – the lanes are set up in groups of four rather than one huge, long row you typically see at bowling alleys.

Food Blog Forum

Bowling at Disney WorldWe had so much fun – it was a great opportunity to meet and get to know other bloggers attending the conference, and enjoy some nachos, fries, salads, and sushi. Yes, sushi. At a bowling alley. And it was good!

Having met each other, and wanting to take full advantage of our 3-day pass to the parks, Katie, her husband Jon, Amy, and I headed over to the Magic Kingdom. While they enjoyed Splash Mountain, I discovered what all the fuss was about Dole Whip. Pineapple flavored frozen yogurt on a hot, humid day? Yes, please! We also caught the Electrical Parade.

Electrical Parade

The next day started early with helping to finish packing swag bags for conference attendees. Holy swag bag! Julie was *NOT* kidding when she said we’d need an extra bag to take stuff home in! The sponsors of this event were so generous, providing us with snacks, stainless steel water bottles and brushes to clean them, ice cream scoops, spatulas, “Got Milk?” aprons, a beautiful cheese board, and a lot more. Thank you so much to KitchenAid, OXO, Florida Dairy Farmers, Cabot Cheese, America’s Test Kitchen, and everyone else!

After breakfast and a little more networking, we all settled in to learn from a variety of speakers. Scott and Jayden Hair of Steamy Kitchen struck a chord with me right away. They spoke about redefining success and setting goals.

  • When it comes to blogging, put yourself out there – it’s about storytelling. Get specific – what changed your life? Met a new friend? Shared a meal? It’s about showing community and emotion.

Okay, this one scares me a bit. Publishing something on any form of social media is like standing on a cafeteria table and shouting it out to an enormous crowd. I have no problem doing that for brands, events, or organizations, but I hold back with my personal life. Not that I would want to share every single nitty gritty detail, but I do need to be more open in this space. It’s not just “hey, here’s the most recent client project I completed”. It’s about the who, what, where, when, and most importantly why.

  • On defining goals and success: Always start with the emotion you are trying to achieve. What will ____ give me? Power? Freedom? Opportunity? Emotion needs to be the cornerstone. Make memories. Life changes when you change focus.

I’ve been living in the same city for 15 years. I’ve been working for the same company for the past 11 years. (I’m very lucky and fortunate for that, but…11 years?! Already?!?!??) I’ve been trying to figure out what’s next this entire time. Goals have changed many times, but I’ve remained in the same place.

  • Law of Attraction: People who are always happy seem to have great things that come to them. Choose the emotional state you want to be in. We are products of our environment.

My full time job is in the news business. It’s really, really difficult to be happy all the time when 8 hours of the day is saturated by stories like the Oklahoma tornado tragedy, the Jodi Arias sentencing watch, more Boston Marathon bombing related news, and a crazy, crazy attack on a military personnel member in London. (And that’s just a fraction of what’s going on in the world today.) But that’s the nature of the industry I sought a career in. And while I try hard to block the negativity out when I’m not working, the exhaustion from so much negativity sometimes it spills over… (Any advice on this??)

Up next was a session with Todd and Diane of White on Rice Couple. Since I took a workshop with them last year, this session was an excellent reinforcement of everything I learned.

White on Rice Couple

  • Look beyond the obvious – why are you sharing? What is the story?
  • Meaning of food- feeding, nourishing, sharing – what does it mean to you?
  • Be inspired by someone else’s story.
  • Take a moment to think.
  • “Your eyes are your lens, your heart is the shutter.”

Being a photographer, I can’t think of another appropriate moment to wrap this post up! Recap, part 2 – more Disney, new blogger friends, and more food – will be coming soon!

Birthday Baking FAIL – Stories in Baking Disasters

Happy Saturday! I’m soooo glad it’s the weekend. Was it one of those weeks that just wouldn’t end for you too? After hanging out with “lil’ sis” after work, I promised myself a quiet night in to recharge. February is always a drab month and I wanted to charge into March with motivation and energy. I have a three-day weekend! I was going to get up early! I was going to make pre-birthday cupcakes for myself and my friend Stephanie, whose birthday is the day after mine! YAY! We both love a good cupcake!

Or so I thought. My alarm went off at 7:45. It was another horrible night of sleep for no good reason. Coffee. Music. That would wake me up. Flipping through recipes, I decided I would make a gluten-free version so Jeff could enjoy a cupcake too. These would be great! I’m seeing a lot of friends tonight, so I could share the deliciousness! And I’d have fun photographing the cupcakes! (You can see where this is going…)

The recipe I liked called for chocolate, and I don’t have chocolate in my apartment right now… (The horror!) Oh, well, I’ll just adapt a similar recipe for a cake and use the measurements and baking times for this cupcake recipe…

Cupcake batter

Bad idea. Really, really, really bad idea. I’m so glad I decided to hold off on making frosting! The edges burned to the pan. The inside of the cupcake is basically raw. I’m not going to pretend I know anything about developing a recipe for baked goods because at this point, I don’t. I’m going to add that to the growing “things I need to learn” list. But after how this week unfolded, how could I be surprised? All I can do is laugh and photograph my failure.

cupcake baking fail

Sorry, Stephanie!!! I will buy us cupcakes from a baker who knows what they’re doing. It’s always better to have cupcakes on your actual birthday anyway, right???

For those of you who bake often, do you have any advice for adapting baking recipes or swapping ingredients? I’d love to hear it!

Winter at Codman Farm

After being cooped up inside at the TV station for two days, getting back outside was pretty exciting. Fresh air! Snow! Blue sky! Cute farm animals! (Except for the pig. The pig is not cute, and smells really bad.) Then there was this little face:

Baby Goat


And this little guy, who was running all around the place:

Yes, it’s only February 11th. But as the rain falls outside, and the beautiful snow fall turns into disgusting slush and ice, baby farm animals are a sure sign that spring is right around the corner…right?!?!?!

Breakfast Reinvented

So what are you up to this weekend? I’m totally procrastinating right now – I *should* be cleaning out my closets like I’ve been promising myself. (The clutter is driving me nuts!) I should be cutting up and freezing the organic strawberries I got at Haymarket yesterday for $1. ($1! Seriously!) But instead, I got sucked into Pinterest, and ended up coming across a delicious recipe for blueberry baked oatmeal. I’m bored with having cereal or eggs every morning, so this is a welcome change in routine! You can find the recipe over on the blog, So, How’s It Taste. It’s really simple, and nice to have leftovers for the week!

Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Blueberry oatmeal

Trip to Toronto – Home Cookin’

A few weeks ago, Jeff and I took a road trip to Toronto. I have so many photos, I have to break everything down into separate blog posts! Every fall, my friend Kelly and her husband Pat open their home to friends for a weekend of food, wine, and conversation. Folks from New York, D.C., Montreal, California, and occasionally from Hong Kong and Perth, make their way to Toronto to catch up with each other.

Kelly is solely responsible for opening up my culinary palette. We met during my freshman year of college, when my diet consisted of pasta, cereal, iceberg lettuce, chicken, and not much else. Being from Hong Kong, Kelly enjoyed convincing her friends to join her for dinner in Chinatown, and ordering in Cantonese so we had no idea what would show up at the table. Having a choice between cafeteria food and eating out, I was convinced to try new things. But Kelly also loves to cook, and she treated many of us to wonderful meals at her apartment. I learned to like asparagus. I learned that real Chinese food does not consist of chicken fingers or beef teriyaki. And ginger in chicken soup? Sure!

Friends Cooking Together

But now Kelly lives in Toronto. (*tear*) This annual weekend away started off as five of us renting a house in Niagara-On-The-Lake , and has now grown into a group of 15+ who invade Kelly and Pat’s house for a weekend. Kelly still cooks for all of us. We still go to asian restaurants, she still orders in Cantonese, and we still have no idea what will show up at the table. And we wouldn’t have it any other way!

I have to give Kelly some props here – not only is she a fabulous cook, but she’s a very talented jewelry designer as well. Check out her website, Elementals Jewellery Design!
