Summer Squash Skewers

Summer to me always signifies BBQ time… and by summer, I mean a proper summer.  In a place where seasons actually change. Fortunately, I was back in good ole ‘merica just in time for summer grills to fire up.  Within a week, I spearheaded three successful summer BBQs for friends and family across the country … Continue reading

Elote (Mexican Grilled Corn on the Cob)

Dress up your regular corn on the cob Mexican-style for this lovely summer of grilling!  I first discovered this zesty dish at Nolita’s famed Café Habana, which is renowned for its bold tasting, Mexican style corn.  La Esquina is another elote outpost and one of my favorite local Latin American restaurants.  I think it’s blasphemy to dine … Continue reading

Grilled Tomatoes with Mozzarella

This is how my mom grills tomatoes and it’s my favorite grilled vegetable dish out there!  Elote (Mexican grilled corn) is very closely tied though… something about grilled veggies and smothering them in cheese is just irresistable. My mom typically serves this with barbequed spare ribs, corn, and rice.  Any barbequed meat will go well … Continue reading

Thai Barbeque Chicken

As an accompaniment to our Papaya Salad, we decided to round out our traditional Thai dinner with a Thai-style marinated barbeque chicken.  We served this with store bought Thai Sweet Chili Sauce, although you can try making your own with this recipe.  The only thing missing was some steamed sticky rice, but think that shall … Continue reading
