to get back in the habit of making something in large quantities that I can then pack up and bring to work for at least a few days of the week. The latest creation is Williams-Sonoma’s black bean, corn and quinoa salad. It makes a ton and I’m such a fan of the fresh ingredients – especially the cilantro!  Easy, healthy and packed with protein. Certainly worth a try, so click here to get the recipe.

An old favorite..

Cuban/Mexican Grilled Corn

meeting spot of both myself and Megan was a local joint on Thompson street called Cubana Café. It was a little bit hidden making it the perfect place to chat, do a little work and eat a great meal. The savory grilled corn was my preferred side dish and of course the sangria my go to cocktail. I came across a recipe for Cuban/Mexican grilled corn on this fab food blog called The Ravenous Couple. Their NYC spot was Cafe Habana, so it no doubt has to be good! With only 4 ingredients (5 including the corn) to make this yummy side dish it seems crazy not to try it before summer’s end.
