We are heading into fall, the season of pumpkins, sweaters, and (in my house) warm and cozy suppers cooked up in my trusty slow cooker. There’s nothing quite like tossing a bunch of ingredients into the slow cooker, trundling off to work and coming home to the delectable aroma of supper being just about ready.

It’s the last day of August (sniffle!) and the corn is as high as an elephant’s eye, as they say.

So hang on to these last warm days of summer with my by making one of my easiest, most summery, most beloved recipes, which is shrimp with corn and herbs. Four ingredients. Ten minutes. Total supper happiness. Let’s make it!

I love this easy recipe for lettuce wrap tacos any time of year, but around this time of year it becomes an Actual Necessity in my house.

Some sweet cherry tomatoes, some chopped scallions for a little bite and of course a generous handful of buttery avocado, and you are in healthy taco heaven. Let’s make it!
