Late summer recipes:
Grilled Corn; Black Plum Ice Cream

Here the awesome new recipes I tried from Aug. 29 to Sept. 1. Enjoy! Click on the links for the recipes.

Grilled Corn with Herb Butter: This simple recipe will have you munching down corn on the cob in no time. Husked corn is grilled then slathered with a delicious butter flavored with chives, parsley and salt.

Paloma: (alcoholic) This refreshing and elegant cocktail is an easy mix of grapefruit juice, tequila, and lime juice. I cheated and used store-bought grapefruit juice instead of freshly squeezed. Make sure to salt the rims of the glasses – it’s half the fun!

Honeydew, Cucumber and Mint Cooler: (non-alcoholic) This became an instant favorite of mine the minute I tasted it. The lime juice in the recipe amplifies the cucumber in a wonderfully salty way. The recipe says it serves eight, but I was only able to make just two nicely-sized servings with it.

Black Plum, Port, and Cinnamon Ice Cream: This ice cream tastes like ice cream and pie, without the pie! My husband closed his eyes to savor the wonderful taste. Cooking the plums, port and cinnamon will definitely get you in the mood for fall.
