30 Mother's Day Dinner Ideas That Say 'I Love You'

  30 Mother's Day Dinner Ideas That Say 'I Love You' It seems strange that there's only one day a year dedicated to celebrating moms—the women who taught us how to tie our shoes and blow our noses. They feed us, clothe us, and (when we're grown) share a drink with us to recall all the times they almost lost it while taking care of us. Mom, it's time to return the favor: with a meal that shows just how much we appreciate you. We'll act like the responsible adults you raised us to be; we'll make aMom, it's time to return the favor: with a meal that shows just how much we appreciate you. We'll act like the responsible adults you raised us to be; we'll make a grocery list three days out, prep the sides the day before, and set the table that morning.

“Nothing beats the sweet aroma of corn that comes from fresh masa and nixtamalization,” says Adriana Azcárate-Ferbel, co-founder of Three Sisters Nixtamal in Portland, OR. “The process has been done for thousands of years throughout Central and North America, and it has so much history. It’s incredible to continue the tradition.”

While standard supermarket tortillas can have a dry, papery texture and flavor, Azcárate-Ferbel explains that fresh masa gives your tortillas “distinct corn taste and a pleasant, chewy bite. The smell, texture, flavor—it’s all very different.”

33 Genius Grilling Recipes for Smarter, Better Cookouts

  33 Genius Grilling Recipes for Smarter, Better Cookouts It's official now: we've hit the season where all we want to do is cook and eat (and swim and cannonball) outside. And—nothing against burgers and steaks—but with so much summer still stretched out ahead, we could use a few more genius ways to work our grills. On the grill, we can cook entire dinners, and anything from whole beasts (within reason) to quick skewered bits. Our grill will make stars of the parts of vegetables you'd normally throwOn the grill, we can cook entire dinners, and anything from whole beasts (within reason) to quick skewered bits. Our grill will make stars of the parts of vegetables you'd normally throw out.

Azcárate-Ferbel and her partners, Pedro Ferbel-Azcárate and Wendy Downing, started making and selling nixtamal, masa, and tortillas in 2012. Today, you can find their products in grocery stores and farmers markets throughout the Pacific Northwest. Their goal: To preserve the ancient technique, provide fresher corn products, and make it all more accessible to their communities.

In Chicago, IL, El Popocatepetl Tortilleria shares a similar objective. “We’re basically using the same recipe that the Indigenous peoples of the Americas did,” says Julian Rodriguez, whose family founded the business in the 1950s. “The Aztecs made masa by cooking the corn and grinding it with volcanic stone, and it picks up so much flavor in that process—it can’t be replicated.”

Our 10 Most Popular New Recipes in April

  Our 10 Most Popular New Recipes in April April showers bring great dinners? Indeed. Though the top two recipes are sweet treats (you’ll see), this month was full of savory knockouts, like slurpable noodles, a speedy-as-heck sandwich, and extra-lemony rice that goes with anything. Take a stroll through our most popular new recipes below, then let me know what you’re cooking up these days. Five Two Wooden Spoons Five Two Ultimate Carbon Steel Wok 10. Moqueca-Inspired Egg Stew A cozyA cozy vegetarian stew “perfect for nights when you want something warming and comforting yet still light and bright in flavor,” writes EmilyC.

While places like California, Texas, and Chicago have historically offered an abundance of places to buy fresh masa for making your own tortillas, tamales, and more, it wasn’t always that way for the East Coast, says Chris Vergara of Tortilleria La Milpa de Rosa in Yonkers, NY. “When we started out, you couldn’t really get nixtamalized corn masa in New York—and if you could, it was pricey.” Masa is a fundamental building block of Mexican cuisine, says Vergara, and “the fact that it wasn’t available in a city like New York just didn’t make any sense.” Five years later, La Milpa de Rosa provides masa and tortillas to the five boroughs and throughout the tri-state area.

Three Sisters, El Popocatepetl, and La Milpa de Rosa are far from alone in their efforts. In recent years, fresh masa has become increasingly available all around the US. Today, you can pick it up at not only tortillerias, but also at grocery stores, bodegas, farmers markets—and many restaurants, some of which focus on heirloom corn in a rainbow of colors. Below, we’ve listed just some of the places you can find it across the country. (Jump down to start in your region: West, Midwest, South, and Northeast.)

How to Make the Best English Muffins You’ve Ever Had

  How to Make the Best English Muffins You’ve Ever Had Scenario: Your given name is Papa, Mama, or Baby, and you have three options in front of you. Here’s how to make English muffins that are just right, no matter how much of a bear you are in the morning.What I suggest instead is making a very nice English-muffin-inspired breakfast loaf. It’s a yeast bread that’s mixed by hand or machine, scraped into a cornmeal-dusted pan, given one single rise, and baked. It’s so, so easy—and relatively quick—and results in an open-textured bread that toasts like a dream and works wonders on an egg sandwich.

The Enduring Magnificence of the Publix Sub

  The Enduring Magnificence of the Publix Sub We all have a food that speaks to our comfort and makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside. For me, this is most commonly wrapped in nostalgia.

And as a Floridian, that joy comes in the form of a sandwich from a popular grocery chain. That's right, I'm talking about theI know what you’re probably thinking: Get a life, dude. It’s a sandwich.

Nationwide sources for masa harina

Masa harina is a shelf-stable flour made from dried masa dough, which can be used as an alternative to fresh masa when mixed with liquid—usually water. Don't confuse it with masarepa, though: That’s a different style of corn flour that is not interchangeable with masa harina. You might also see the term harina de maíz, which could refer to any type of flour made from corn. If you’re unsure about a product in your local market, check the ingredients list, which should list “contains traces of lime,” “treated with lime,” or something similar to clarify that the corn in the mix was nixtamalized. Masa harina is widely available both in stores and online; here are a few brands to look out for.

Alma Semilaria

Based in the San Francisco Bay area, Alma Semilaria's mission is focused on the preservation and revitalization of ancestral Mesoamerican foodways. They offer organic masa harina in both blue and white corn varieties, as well as a version made from quinoa.

Azure Market Organics

A family-run outfit based in Dufur, Oregon, Azure ships natural and organic groceries and home goods nationwide. They offer organic masa harina in both white and yellow corn varieties.

Bob's Red Mill

Gold Mine Natural Foods

Gold Mine Naturals began as a family business based outside San Diego. They ship heirloom heirloom grains, beans, and seeds—including white, yellow, and blue varieties of masa harina—nationwide in bulk amounts from 1 to 50 pounds, as well as other organic goods.

Guelaguetza

A landmark Oaxacan restaurant in Los Angeles, Guelaguetza sells heirloom masa harina in both white and blue varieties through their online retail store, alongside their beautiful 2019 cookbook and other signature ingredients. (Also available at Snuk Foods in white or blue.)

Masa Brosa

Produced by RP Foods in Dallas, this masa harina is available in standard white (Walmart, Zócalo Foods) and blue (Amazon) varieties, as well as an organic version and a coarser ground version marketed for tamales.

Maseca

Masienda

This Los Angeles-based company sells single-origin masa harina made from heirloom corn, such as red mushito, white olotillo, and blue cónico.
