Prep time: 1 hour | Soaking time: 20-60 minutes | Cooking time: 15 minutes | Yield: 4 servings

SALAD 4 large ears of corn in husks ½ cup herb mixture (see recipe) 4 medium boned, skinned chicken breasts (5 oz ea), fat trimmed salt, freshly ground pepper 2 red bell peppers, cored and quartered 6 large green onions, thinly sliced 10 cups romaine lettuce TOMATO-JALAPEÑO VINAIGRETTE 1 tsp minced garlic 1 large jalapeño chili, seeded, minced ¼ cup each: white vinegar, light-tasting olive oil ½ cup apple juice ¾ tsp each: ground cumin, chili powder, sugar, salt 1 large tomato, shell only cut into ¼-inch dice HERB MIXTURE 1 ½ tsp each: minced garlic, Worcestershire sauce 2 T each: minced parsley, snipped chives 1/3 cup each: olive oil, vegetable broth 1 T Dijon mustard ½ tsp sugar ¼ tsp salt Freshly ground pepper 1/3 cup finely shredded Colby cheese 1/3 cup cilantro leaves Warm flour tortillas, for serving DIRECTIONS For Herb Mixture, whisk all ingredients in small bowl until well mixed. Can make ahead and refrigerate. For Salad, peel back corn husks without detaching; remove silks. Re-wrap corn in husks; soak in cold water for 20-60 minutes. Drain, pat dry. Peel back husks, brush corn with herb mixture, fold husks back over corn, and secure with string. Place chicken breasts between plastic wrap; use a mallet to make uniform thickness and slightly flattened. Brush chicken and red pepper quarters with herb mixture. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place corn, chicken and red pepper quarters, skin-side down, on greased clean grill over high heat. Cover grill; cook until each ingredient is cooked, turning often, about 5 minutes for roasted peppers, 8 minutes for chicken, 15 minutes for corn. Wrap blistered pepper quarters in foil to steam. When peppers are cool enough to handle, peel off skin, cut into 1/2-inch strips, and re-wrap in foil. Cut chicken crosswise into 1/2-inch strips and wrap in foil to keep moist. Remove husks from corn, slice corn off cob. Put green onions and lettuce in bowl; chill. For vinaigrette, whip together all ingredients (except diced tomato); stir in diced tomato and adjust seasoning. To serve, toss corn and red peppers with ½ cup vinaigrette. Mix well. Toss chicken with ½ cup vinaigrette. Toss chilled lettuce and green onions with remaining vinaigrette. Adjust seasoning in each. Divide greens between 4 chilled plates. Mound corn mixture on top, dividing evenly. Arrange chicken pieces around edge of salad. Garnish with cilantro leaves. Pass cheese and warm tortillas separately. Serve immediately.

Breakfast Cupcakes

This is a really easy dish to prepare, and it looks so cute! It is also a great dish to serve on a buffet table because each serving is completely self-contained and can just be picked up and popped on a plate. 1 (20 oz) pkg pre-shredded hash brown-style potatoes 2 large eggs, lightly beaten 4 T flour 1 small sweet onion, coarsely grated 2 thick slices deli ham, chopped into small bits (about 1 cup) 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste 1 dozen eggs, scrambled chives for garnish Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and lightly spray a 12-cup muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Mix the first 8 ingredients together in a large bowl. Spoon potato mixture into each prepared muffin cup until about 1/3 full. Gently press the potato mixture down in the middle and up the sides of each cup. Bake until golden brown, about 25-30 minutes. If the nests have puffed up too much in the center, scoop out a little with a teaspoon. Spoon a few tablespoons of scrambled eggs into each nest and top with sour cream dollop and chives.

Top 10 Pantry Essentials for Fast, Healthful Cooking

Stock your kitchen with these basic building blocks for a wide variety of good-foryou recipes that are quick and easy to create. 1. Canola Oil—One of the most healthful cooking oils available. It contains the least saturated fat and most plant-based omega-3 fat of all common cooking oils. 2. Vinegar—The acid in vinegar, including white wine, red wine or balsamic, brightens and balances flavors. It’s key to salad vinaigrette, and can add depth and sweetness to soups and sautés. 3. Peanut Butter—A healthful addition to baked goods. It’s also a quick base for Asian-style peanut sauce on noodles or meat. 4. Lower-Sodium Chicken or Vegetable Broth—Boost flavor in homemade soup, whole grains or a braised dish. Store-bought can be higher in salt, look for lower-sodium varieties. 5. Honey or Brown Sugar—Not just for baked goods - a touch can help caramelize foods and bring out the natural sweetness in vegetables. 6. Whole Wheat Flour—Essential for baking and useful for thickening sauces, binding veggie pancakes and more. 7. Basic Spices—For most dishes, you’ll be good to go with pepper, cinnamon, cumin, chili powder, garlic flakes, thyme and an Italian herb blend. 8. Whole Grains—Brown rice, whole grain pasta, oats, barley and quinoa are packed with nutrition and nicely filling. 9. Quick Protein—Canned or dried beans and lentils as well as canned salmon and tuna are excellent pantry staples. 10. Canned Tomatoes—Essential for sauces, soups and stews. Select those that are lower in sodium. (NAPSI)

Five Ideas For A Great Party

This summer, entertaining at home is on the rise. When hosting your next gathering, try these five tips for a fun and fabulous party: • Decide on a theme: A Backyard Barbecue, a Summer Fiesta, a Patriotic Party for Labor Day or a Lobster Bake? Whatever the occasion, think about simple yet creative decoration ideas and then plan your food, music and table settings to match the theme. • Set up mini-plates of hors d’oeuvres: Serving finger foods means you get to spend more time with your guests and less time in the kitchen. Check online for the best party appetizer recipes and try using locally sourced ingredients. No forks or spoons required. • Get in on the fun: Hire a bartender so you’re not spending your time serving drinks. Or make sangria ahead of time so guests can serve themselves. Create cocktail names that go along with your theme. Mix and mingle. • Play a game: Get the whole gang laughing with a group game. Try a hilarious new party game called Utter Nonsense where players take turns combining stereotypical accents with outrageous phrases to create sayings that are just plain ridiculous. Think of a grandma bragging about sexting or a redneck wondering if diarrhea is contagious. You don’t have to be good at accents and the combinations don’t need to make sense. In fact, players are encouraged to improvise and make the phrases their own. The game is available at Target stores nationwide and online at www. • Always leave ‘em laughing: Let the last memory of the evening be the best. You may even want to give out little parting presents, such as a favorite accent or phrase card from the game. It’s a fun memento that your friends or family will enjoy.
