Sweet! Some tasty ways to make the most of corn on the cob

If there were a signature summer dish of my childhood, it was corn on the cob. Sweet, tender and juicy. Is there anything better? My father loved it. Still does, though he doesn't eat a half-dozen ears in a sitting as he once did.

Chocolate-covered beans give extra kick to iced coffee

Lunch on the town is all long skirts, tall drinks and sunny salads. What's better than old friends and new outfits? We lunched, we lounged, we lingered. Sans coffee, we listed toward the car, which perversely had left.

Up your burger game

A good burger is a glorious thing. The confluence of savory meat, fresh toppings, soft bread and flavorful condiments creates a nearly perfect bite. I say “nearly” because the burger-eating experience can’t go on forever. Eventually, you’ve eaten the thing, and that’s when the sadness sets in (that is, until you fix yourself another).

How to make funnel cake

The funnel cake — served under a mountain of powdered sugar and any of a number of toppings — is the stuff of fried food legend, and a trip to the fair, carnival or theme park isn’t complete without one. Or the stack of napkins you’ll need to go with it.

Dishes from the 1950s

The decade began with a bloody war in Korea that came to a conclusion, of sorts, that satisfied no one. The Civil Rights movement found its first victories, leading to a sense, among some, that the nation’s fabric was beginning to fray.

A perfect seasonal dinner

Dijon mustard and orange marmalade create a spicy, sweet glaze for quick-cooking boneless pork chops. The secret to speedy cooking is to buy thin-cut pork chops or cut thick ones in half horizontally to make a 1/2-inch thick chop.

Packing some heat

If you’ve ever been through a kitchen remodel, you know what a pain it is to be without a stove. My home kitchen is getting a facelift, including a new range/stove. Thanks to my grill with a side burner I can still cook just about everything, but I’ve also turned to prepared foods and no-cook dishes.
