Summer!! While I love corn, I usually find it a little bland and boring. After a while it just feels like I'm gnawing at a piece of wet cardboard. But this corn is different. It's juicy, flavorful and the perfect amount of spicy. I hope you're all ears for this recipe... (har har).
4 ears of corn
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp cayenne pepper
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup grated cotija cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place corn (with husks) straight onto oven racks and bake for 45 minutes. Then, remove from oven and carefully remove husks. Rub all ears evenly with butter and then sprinkle with cayenne pepper. Then, sprinkle generously with cilantro and cotija cheese. Just before serving, squeeze lime onto corn. Enjoy!
Flora Grubb Gardens is one of my favorite places in
I spent years straightening my curls. My hair would smell like a campfire and my ends looked like tree roots, splitting off into every direction. It wasn't cute.
When I went to college I finally started to embrace my natural hair, but it still took a lot of getting used to. I will always envy girls who can wake up without looking like angry lions, but I'm learning to love what I have.
And now, the mane attraction...
This kit has everything I currently use and I love it. I start by washing my hair (I only use shampoo/conditioner 2x/week, the other days I just wet it). When I get out of the shower, I wrap a towel around my head and go watch reality TV for a while with my coffee (that step is very important to get the right curls). After I let my hair down, I use the Styling Cream (4 pumps) to scrunch my hair all over. Then I go through and twist individual curls, focusing on the ones around my face.
After twisting, I blow dry my hair with a diffuser. I try not to touch it a lot while I'm drying it. After drying, I will go in and separate any chunky curls so it doesn't look like Little Bo Peep. Then I will usually use a little cheap hairspray to keep things from getting too frizzy. On days I don't wet my hair, I will usually go through with a small curling wand to clean up any messy curls.
