Hi Everyone! Happy Tuesday! Hope you all enjoyed the Memorial Day weekend. I had the most awesome meal this past weekend at Per Se. As one of only five 3-star Michelin rated restaurants in New York City, there has of course been a ton of positive press about Per Se. But did the meal live up to the hype? Well, based on my rating, I’m sure you can guess what I thought of it…

This week’s Fun Fact is just in time for long the start of barbecue and picnic season!

As the weather warms up in NYC, I’ll probably retire my beloved slow cooker for the summer (I previously blogged about yummy slow cooker Chile Verde). However, a few unseasonably chilly weeks ago, I put together some ribs and corn pudding. The result was sooooo good and soooo easy! Seriously, you can’t mess this up!

One of the fun things about putting together recipes is that you never know how they’ll turn out. Sometimes they are awesomesauce, other times, not so good. The recipe featured in this post turned out, in my opinion, 50% good. That is, half of the finished product was deelish, and I had to throw the other half out. Intrigued yet?
