Grilled Sweet Jersey Corn Chowder from Hell's Kitchen Season 11 Chef

Cool fall days have us reaching for warm and satisfying soup recipes and this one from Chef Amanda Giblin, Hell's Kitchen Season 11, really hits the spot. 

Start by grilling sweet corn and removing grilled kernels from the cob.

Blackberries are here and Chef Drew Araneo of Drew's Bayshore Bistro in Keyport, NJ, says they are his favorite choice for the luscious Peaches and Berry Cobbler recipe that he has shared with Savoring the Shore.  

The recipe starts with fresh-picked berries and peaches tossed gently with sugar.

Top the fruit mixture with a buttery dough and bake. That's it!

We served with vanilla ice cream and our taste buds are still atwitter as we post this photo. So easy, so fresh, so good! 

Thank you again to Chef Drew who has four recipes coming soon in the Savoring the Shore fundraising cookbook, all proceeds to NJ Sandy recovery.  PS: Chef Drew beat Chef Bobby Flay recently in a Throwdown featuring Chef Drew's legendary VooDoo Shrimp--definitely worth a visit to Keyport!

Black Thai

We love the name Black Thai and the flavors of this vegetarian dish brought us back for seconds. The recipe was submitted by Sean O'Leary, a first responder for New Jersey Natural Gas who worked double shifts for months to help others even as his own home was heavily damaged by Sandy.
