#FarmersMarketWeek: Old Bay Corn

It’s the final day of #FarmersMarketWeek! I hope you’ve enjoyed the recipes I and the other bloggers have shared with you. A couple of years ago I went to a cookout my cousin hosts for the Fourth of July. One of the dishes there, that her boyfriend had made, was […]

Summertime Pasta Salad

There are a lot of condiments and foods that I love and Tom won’t come anywhere near them. One of the items on that list is cold pasta salad. He will eat cooked pasta. He will eat veggies pureed into a sauce, but he will not eat cold veggies (or […]

Coleslaw

For years I refused to try ever try coleslaw just because it is typically made with mayonnaise. If I haven’t mentioned it before, I am not a big mayonnaise fan. I can handle mayo in small doses, like mixed into tuna salad or lightly spread on a steak sub sandwich, […]

Cucumber and Tomato Salad

Last Friday I shared the delicious Pot Roast Sliders recipe I made for the recipe swap. After letting Tom pick out the slider recipe, I clicked through the side dishes and salads on Jaida’s blog to figure out something to make with them. This recipe jumped out at me immediately. […]

Quinoa Corn Salad

It was the end of the week and I realized I didn’t have a side dish planned for dinner. A quick look in the fridge informed me that we had about 1 1/2 cups of corn kernels from corn on the cob and a leftover red pepper. I first thought […]

As silly as it sounds, I would have never thought to fry corn. Since steamed, boiled, and grilled are the more common preparations, I tend to gravitate toward those. But when I saw this recipe as part of the July Improv Challenge, I knew I needed to try out frying […]
