This chilled summertime soup takes gazpacho to a whole new level. It’s a velvety sweet departure from the usual tomato-based preparation one usually associates with gazpacho. The roasted corn, sliced from the cob and placed directly into the soup pot adds a lovely sweetness and crunch. Don’t be intimidated by the length of this recipe; it’s really quite easy. And don’t skip the step of making a broth out of the cobs that have been relieved of their kernels. This adds such a lovely, complex flavor that simply can’t be duplicated by replacing with canned vegetable broth that you might have in your pantry.

The lime tree in my morning room is ready to be harvested. (The Meyer lemon tree keeps dropping its fruit after blooming, but that’s another story.) Making a batch of puckeringly sour and buttery sweet Lime Sparkler Cookies came immediately to mind.
The secret ingredient that makes these cookies so tart, but so sweet at the same time, is powdered citric acid. This can be found in most grocery stores in the little section where the cases of canning jars and boxes of lids are. The recipe is really quite simple, and with relatively little effort and a short amount of time, the result is a wonderful little treat that will perk up the dreariest of winter days.
