Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

Spicy Corn Dip
Shuck four ears of corn and sauté for five minutes in olive oil or butter with a large shallot and a couple of cloves of garlic. Let it cool in the pan. Add the mixture to the food processor with salt, pepper, a half a cup of ricotta and a handful of spinach and puree until smooth.
To serve, scoop the mixture into a bowl and cover with a generous pouring of chili oil. Or, for a bit more depth saute a hot pepper along with the shallot and garlic. Toasted pita chips are the way to go for this one.
