Summer produce is just the best. Peaches, watermelon, plums, cherries, eggplant, green beans, tomatoes and, my personal favorite, CORN. During the summer months, I find myself serving corn-on-the-cob as a side with at least half of my home cooked meals, boiling it for only a few minutes so the kernels keep some of their crunch, slathering the steaming hot ear with salty melted butter. But with corn selling for, like, 50 cents an ear, I want to eat much more of it before the season is up and I’d like to get a little more creative. Here are 10 recipes I’m totally corny for.

DestapaBanana, perhaps one of the more brilliant food creations of our time, allows you to fill a banana with chocolate, caramel, yogurt, or prepackaged filling of your choice (and no, despite its suspicious appearance, it is not a sex toy).

In my (and my friends’) various experiences in dating, here’s what your first date food order says about you. And always, ALWAYS steer clear of super spicy Indian food unless your bowels are rock solid. Keep reading »
