Corn by Jake

Last night we had take-out from Zhang's. When I pulled into the parking lot I saw the sign I have been looking for every day when I drive by - Jake's Corn Opens 6/30! Oh happy day! I got home and I told Chris we were going to have Corn for dinner on Saturday night!
And we did have corn. Amazingly delicious corn. And we had steak too! Porterhouse on sale this week. Half price! As much as I love veggies the porterhouse is my favorite steak.
I also found a wonderful recipe for Italian Potato Salad. It is from Nonna Lina's Kitchen blog. I have a weakness for authentic Italian recipes or at least recipes that I think my mom, grandmother or any of my aunts would have made. This site is a delight.
And I made dessert. From the new Bon Appetit, Cheesecake with Ginger-Lime Candied Raspberries. It was light but it did not firm up like the magazine photo. I am not experienced with gelatin so that was probably the problem. What I liked best was the raspberries. I think they would be good on just about anything. Cheesecake is rather rich to eat more than once a week, at least for me. Check out the Nutritional Info at the end of the recipe!
