Rich People Corn and Bulletproof Coffee

Alright my pals, hop in a cab with a stinky driver and head yourself straight for Philadelphia to Bel Air. This is corn for rich people. It doesn’t cost a lot to make, it just tastes so friggin’ fancy.


Whether you begin with prepackaged ears or un-shucked corn, these kernels will turn out gorgeous. Fah-bulous. Uh-mazing. Feel free to use any form of Real Housewife adjective to describe. Oh, and I’m talking Orange County or Beverly Hills, not the other chicks.

After snapping a few photos, I gnawed through two of these babies. No napkin, no plate. Just me and some slathery goodness.

You’ll want to give this a try early on in the grilling season, that way there will be an easy go-to side dish for your summer get-togethers!

Spell check is NOT feeling me right now. I guess I make up too many words. 

Basil Corn


Corn was the main dish tonight, as we are still having a bit of a camping hangover. Dirt seems to be permanently crusted into my boys’ nails and bug bites are still appearing. While we all had a great time, I have decided that any and all future camping trips will involve flushable toilets. I’m a bit of a Real Housewife myself. When you become as classy and refined as I have, you get hooked on flushing.

This was my first camping trip since kids, it’s been seven years and I was brought right back to the good old days. Good old days, by the way, is Latin for “The outings in which my husband accidentally tips the boat/wave-runner/kayak, tossing me into the lake or river.”  It is also roughly translated in Pig Latin to, “I can’t stop myself from getting sick over too many s’mores. I’m 36 with no mallow/choco/graham control.”

Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 8
Grill corn for 20 minutes on medium high, rotating every five. Lightly brush with butter if desired.
  • 8 Corn ears
  • 4 T. grass-fed butter
  • 6 basil leaves
  • 1 large lemon
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, plus more for garnishing
  • salt
  • pepper
  1. Blend butter, basil, the juice of the lemon and cheese in a food processor. Slather over hot corn before seasoning with salt, pepper and extra cheese. Get napkins!


If you find yourself with some left over butter, let me tell you what you won’t want to make, Bulletproof Coffee.

Bulletproof Coffee is the creation of The Bulletproof Executive and Biohacker, Dave Asprey. Before you head over to his site, I have to let you know that I absolutely love his podcast. You can find it on iTunes and it’s nothing less than riveting. Fat Burning Man is another awesome podcast. I’d totally suggest you add Abel James to your iPod, whether or not you are a Paleo fan. He’s really interesting and inspirational!

However, Bulletproof’s coffee is so, so very nasty.  Not his beans, I’m sure they make a good cuppa. I’m talking about the fat burning, mind building recipe of grass-fed butter, coconut oil and coffee. I seriously get sick from the taste of coconut oil, and I’ve been wondering if my jar has gone bad. So, I nearly died after trying it in my coffee!

Granted, Bulletproof suggests you buy their MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) oil, which is made from coconut and palm oil, but does not have a coconut taste.

So, I tried the coffee again, with only butter. GAG!

To make Bulletproof Coffee, you blend freshly pressed coffee and let the heat melt the butter and dissolve the oil. I have heard people are in LOVE with Bulletproof Coffee. It just ain’t for me. My high hopes were squashed! At least we will always have this photo…

  1. Hi I just ran into your post. Great corn recipe, thanks! I just wanted to comment on your BP Coffee though. That picture doesn’t look anything at all like the BP coffee that I make every morning now for about a year. I think you might have mixed something up and you should maybe try it again. I’ve introduced it to about 20 people now and the initial reaction to hearing what’s in it is always the same. “Butter in my coffe?! No way” but to a person each who tried it loved it. Anyway just a suggestion. Thanks again.
