I know me and you haven’t been on the best of terms.  We’ve never really gotten along all that well.  And honestly, most of the time I’m glad to see you go.  You’ve never been good to me; a lot of rough shit went down during the time you’re around, I talk shit about how you make it so humid and mess up my hair…etc etc.

But you know Summer, I have to say that this year was a little different.  I didn’t mind you as much.  You weren’t so bad.  Maybe we can start to get along and even become friends one day?  Ok maybe that was wishful thinking.  So how about maybe we can at least be more cordial to each other in the future?  I think that would be fair (and we know I’m all about fairness 😉 ).  So until next year…

Cilantro Lime Butter 

So yeah…since I got a bunch of fresh cilantro I need to use up, you can expect to see recipes featuring cilantro until it’s all gone.  Waste not want not yall.


  • 2 sticks of unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 lime, juiced and zested
  • 1/4 c finely chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp onion powder

So basically, I put all the ingredients (except the butter) into a food processor to bring them together.  You should end up with a mixture that resembles a paste.  You can mix this into the butter in a bowl.  I wouldn’t put the butter into the food processor just because it may end up melting and we don’t want that.

Either refrigerate or use immediately.  If you want to keep it for more than a day or so, form it into a log using wax paper and put it in the freezer until it becomes firm.  Then you can cut it off like you’d do regular sticks of butter.

This is good on corn on the cob, salmon, and probably would be good on chicken or like toast too.
