The process of dying Easter eggs with young children can be, well, a mess. While I’d love to say that I’m such an easy-going, relaxed mom that I just accept the mess as part of the process, in reality, it takes a lot of the fun out of it for me.
Fresh corn on the cob is pretty much the perfect food. It doesn’t need a lot of fancying up . . . at least that’s what I thought before I was introduced to Mexican Street Corn. This is corn on the cob with a bit of a kick and it’s so loaded with flavor that perfectly complements the corn. Once you try it you’ll never want to go back to plain old corn on the cob.
I grew up writing for fun so when my own kids decided that writing was a fate worse than death I wasn’t quite sure what to do with that.
