Growing up in Sweden, as kids we ate candy corn.  We got a lot of it whenever my mom watched her favorite Elvis movies on television. She wanted to focus on the film so she’d placate us with sweets to keep us occupied. Actual corn was something we ate in the summertime. My mom was from the only place warm enough to produce corn. We always ate it warm served with butter. I loved eating corn as a kid. It pops on your teeth and I love eating it with my hands. The corn here is Mexican inspired, charred and sweet.

We all know guacamole is finger-licking tasty, especially in the summer when avocados are ripe and in season, but who would’ve thought guacamole can be whipped up and enjoyed in less than twenty minutes with five simple ingredients? Lara Land transforms and elevates the traditional summertime snack by adding minced yellow peppers to the mix with lots and lots of cilantro. A few splashes of homemade lemon and lime juice add the perfect tang and acidity just begging to be scooped up with your favorite tortilla chips. We kid you not that all you need for this fabulous recipe are these five ingredients, some salt, pepper, a fork and a pretty little bowl  to mix everything together. Ten minutes in and you’ve got yourself a new twist on an old favorite.

It’s still hot here in Austin, and by hot I mean 105 degrees. Yep that’s right, while most of you around the country are getting out your boots and jackets and making hot apple cider, we are still in the throws of a full blown heat wave!  After lounging by the pool this weekend I decided I needed something cool and refreshing and alas, this Strawberry Lime Parfait was born! I will definitely be making this the next time we have friends over. It is so pretty and freezes well so can be made well in advance. Read More

There’s no better way to say goodbye than to sip on a favorite summer cocktail and relish the flavors that go so well with the heat. The caipirinha is the perfect drink to do the trick. Read More

Limes, the ultimate sweet and sour, have been making people pucker since before the 10th century. They originated in Southeast Asia and subsequently Arab traders brought the trees to Egypt and Northern Africa. Three centuries later, the Arabian Moors brought the trees over to Spain, and from there the trees were dispersed throughout Southern Europe during the Crusades. Read More

March Madness Cocktail Recipe

By Marcus Samuelsson | March 4, 2011

When the first green shoots of spring break through frozen soil, I like to break out a crate of strawberries and a bottle of mezcal for a refreshing cocktail. Tequila’s bad boy cousin mezcal brings a smoky, savory element to this drink that works well with tart, fruity strawberries. Sip it while filling out March Madness brackets or starting a new gardening project.
