It is officially, unofficially summer! The other day I whipped up a pot of summer corn chowder and thought I would share with you all this delicious way to toss in lots of summer produce. Corn on the cob is one of my favorite summer foods - but serving plates of boiled corn gets a little bit boring during the warm months. I have a few ideas up my sleeve for savoring this delicious summer food, like this corn chowder and my sweet corn salad. Chowder For Beginners I know it is easy to be . . .
This is an all time favorite recipe! Every time I take to a get together is downed so fast. First one to go. You just.can't.stop. its that good. It's easy, and you typically have these ingredients on hand for last minute dip needs... You can choose to do all the chopping by hand, or you can toss the ingredients into a food processor and let it do the world. I kinda like to do it by hand. Totally your preference. Throw the cheese and mayo in with the veggies and bake. Serve immediately (nice . . .
Do you remember when you used to buy school lunch and they served us creamed corn!!!??? I ALWAYS gagged. I hated it. I was not a picky eater as a child, I even loved school lunches...however I did NOT like creamed corn. I tell you this becuause, I didn't like that that canned creamed corn but I love this homemade creamed corn. I made this recipe last year for Thanksgiving aaaaand the pan was pretty much licked clean. melt maw heart. Is there a better compliment than that? It's . . .
One summer evening at my parents house I sat snarffing down my corn on the cob. (corn on the cob is really one food that I feel like I'm snarfing when I'm eating- just they way you have to crunch down with your teeth and breathe through your nose....it's not the most flattering food we eat) I had to ask- "Mom, how come your corn tastes so good? How long do you boil it? Do you buy a certain type? Am I just a horrible corn-picker-outer?" After all of . . .
"My life is good. Really good. I get to wake up at 5:00 in the morning and make some soup. It's the best. I love it. I get to lay in a bed by myself all of my life. It's fantastic." -Nacho Libre. Duh. This crock pot chowder is SOUPer tasty, easy, and pretty healthy. You chop veggies, throw it all in the crock pot, come back and blend half of it, and you got yourself some simple corn chowder. I chopped four ears of corn, two red bell peppers, half of an onion, about eight little golden . . .
A few years back my husband and I were having dinner at a friends Tommy & Sarah's house. She whipped up these yummy cornbread muffins and ever since I've been hooked! She told me that she loved them and served them all the time with dinner. This is a semi-homemade recipe because it uses the Jiffy Mix as the base. The muffins are moist and flavorful, and the recipe is so easy! There are perfect alongside any dinner, but pair perfectly with chili! Try them with a . . .
I remember the first time I had this taco soup. I was in college and my church leader's wife made it for several of us young adults. It was so delicious and reminded me of home. I went home and added it to my recipe box and I've been making it ever since. A Recipe To Be Shared Every time I make this soup I am amazed at how easy it is, and by how good it is! I've shared this recipe with many family members who now make this often as well! It is really just that good! I love getting . . .
This was our book club late night snack a few months back. We all loved it and begged Melissa for the recipe, which she graciously handed over. I have not been graciously accepting over black beans in my past, but this salsa turned me into a lover. It's sweet and savory elements combine perfectly. You mouth and friend you feed this too will be going crazy over it. It's quite easy to make. All it takes it a little chopping and stirring! Serve it as is with some of your favorite brand . . .
On Sunday I found myself in a bit of a scramble....We had gotten home from our big Christmas/Idaho trip late friday night. Saturday unpacked and cleaned and managed to go to Costco for milk, eggs, and a few other essentials. My daughter Sydney's birthday was Sunday and she decided right then and there in Costco she wanted tacos for her dinner. We grabbed all we could for the meal and headed home. The next day (Sunday, Sydney's birthday) we had the whole feast . . .
