There’s something oddly satisfying about popping out the yolks from hard boiled eggs as you prepare to make deviled eggs. (Please tell me I’m not absolutely bizarre for thinking this or for actually typing it.)
Mexican street corn, you say? If you’ve never tried it, it’s absolutely amazing and such a great way to enjoy an ear of corn in the summer. Grilled ear of sweet corn are slathered with spiced mayonnaise and then rolled in cheese. I mean, I’m sure I could eat my weight in that corn. But instead of looking like a hot mess while devouring said corn, I decided to condense that flavor into a bite size appetizer or side, perfect for summer gatherings. Or perhaps enjoying as lunch while your children nap. You know, in case you do things like that so you don’t have to share with said children.
