I will be collecting healthy recipes from family and friends. Hopefully, one day soon I will have some members join me in collecting great recipes! My focus right now is on finding mind healthy foods that help fight depression. If you have a recipe to add feel free to list it in the comments section. Always under construction, so any ideas you have for my blog, feel free to drop me a line in comments.

Margarita Grilled Corn on the Cob
Ingredients 8 ears fresh corn in husks 4 tsp. finely shredded lime peel (peel from 2 to 3 limes) 2 tsp. kosher salt or sea salt 1/3 cup butter, melted 1 tsp. chili powder Small Limes (optional)
1. Carefully peel back corn husks, but do not remove. Scrub ears with stiff brush to remove silks. Rinse ears. Pull husks back up around corn. Place in large pot; cover with water. Soak 2 to 4 hours; drain well. Peel back husks and pat corn dry with paper towels.
2. For lime salt, in small bowl stir together lime peel and salt. Brush some of the butter on corn. Sprinkle lightly with lime salt and chili powder. Fold husks back around ears. Tie husk tops with strips of corn husk or 100% cotton kitchen string.
3. For charcoal grill, grill corn on rack of uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 25 to 30 minutes or until tender, turning and rearranging occasionally. (For gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place corn on grill rack over heat. Cover; grill as above.)
4. To serve, remove ties from corn; peel back husks. Pass remaining butter, lime salt, chili powder, and limes for squeezing.
