Nobody's Parfait

Yesterday, Katie guest posted on the blog Nobody's Parfait. It's a blog written in letters where two friends dish on family, careers and the food that gets them through.

The blog is co-written by two of her college friends, Sarah and Libby, and sometimes they have guest writers, like Katie.

Here is the "forward" for her post.

We're so thrilled to welcome our second guest contributor, our dear friend Katie McBreen. Our friendship with Katie goes back more than a decade (gasp!), and while neither of us gets to see her as often as we'd like, we love the fact that every time we DO get together, it's as though not a day has passed since our college years. When she's not traversing the country for her work as a high-powered PR exec in D.C., or trying out the latest fitness craze, Katie and her twin sister Regan can be found doling out fashion advice on their blog, Cardigans & Couture.  
As we've said before, our guest post series aspires to shine the spotlight on different ways that people incorporate cooking and the enjoyment of food into their everyday lives. We love that Katie's found a solution that keeps her weeknight meals both inspired and efficient. Now, if she could just tell us about fall's must-have boots....  - Sarah and Libby
On their blog, Katie shared a yummy recipe from one of her Blue Apron meals for sautéed green beans and corn.

Sauteed Green Beans & Corn

5 oz green beans
2 ears corn (cut corn off cob)
1 bunch basil
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 lemon
1 clove garlic
In a medium pan, melt the butter with 1 tsp of olive oil on medium. Add the garlic and green beans and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the beans are bright green and slightly tender. 
Add the corn to the pan of green beans and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Stir in the juice of 1/2 lemon, 1/4 cup water, and chopped basil. Season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly reduced and thoroughly combined.
