Do you like corn?

If you do, check out CORN RIBS! 

They’re “ribs” you can make by cutting corn cobs into quarters and air-frying them.

Then once they’re ready you can season them like Mexican street corn.

They look so good 

Here’s how to cut up the corn 

Here’s a recipe you can try Elote Inspired Corn Ribs

Off Menu: 

When it’s summer I love eating lighter and lots of veggies.

Kitchen Tip:

My new oven looks like it’s been through a lot even though it’s only a few months old.

But I’ve been hesitant to clean it because I don’t wanna use chemicals.

I think the residue could get into the food when the oven’s heated.

So I found a natural way to clean it using baking soda and vinegar.

Below’s the before and after and then how you can do it too 



What you need: 

Here’s how: 

  1. Make a paste of 1:1 baking soda to water. Just add enough water to make a paste. Then, rub that on the glass door for 15 minutes. Do this while the oven is cold.
  2. After 15 minutes, pour a couple tablespoons of white wine vinegar on the door. It will fizz. Use a scraper to scrape away stubborn grease. Use a sponge as needed. 
  3. Then, use some water to wipe it all off with a rag or sponge.


Have you heard of Michelin star restaurants?

If you don’t know, they’re some of the best restaurants in the world.

They’re places that you go to on special nights like anniversaries.

But I found out that they also have restaurants in their guide that are more affordable and every day.

All you have to do is go to the Michelin website and use the price filter. 

I tried it and found 14 places in Los Angeles that I’m excited to try.

So check it out and see what you find!
