This is a great light dish for summer that comes together very quickly, especially with the use of frozen corn (instead of boiling fresh corn and cutting it off the cob). If you’re looking for ways to reduce your overall consumption of meat, which is good for both your health and your wallet, this recipe for Tex-Mex Corn Fritters Over Black Bean Salad is a great place to start.
Many Fried Green Tomato recipes involve lots of steps, including a milk bath and adding seasonings and regular flour to your corn meal. I’m sure they all taste fabulous, but my goal in the kitchen is almost always quick and easy (and tasting great, of course!).
Last weekend we hosted our very first Dinner Club in our new home! It was so nice to be settled enough to entertain friends (although, believe me, we still had plenty of unfinished projects going on in the background – welcome to moving!).
This skillet cornbread is super easy to make and would be a great compliment to so many dishes like chili, black eyed peas (or other beans), taco soup, lentil soup (and sausage!), BBQ chicken or ribs, collard greens, or a big holiday dinner! How do you love to eat your cornbread?
If you’re looking for an impressive yet easy romantic dinner then here’s your answer. This is the perfect Valentine’s Day “stay in and cook something special” dish for the adults of the family. I tried this dish on my kids and they were not fans at all (and they also kept calling everything by the wrong name, too…clams instead of scallops, lettuce instead of arugula, and grits instead of polenta). So they definitely proved their point that this upscale meal should be left to the enjoyment of adults only, at least in our house. And I don’t know about you, but we certainly don’t mind a quiet evening alone every now and then! Plus this is not one of those fancy dishes that will have you in the kitchen cooking and cleaning all night long either, so get ready to enjoy.
My daughters love this cornbread so much they would happily eat it for dessert. I happen to be more of a dark chocolate girl, but I do love the fact that this version of corn bread has actual bits of corn in the batter. This recipe would be a great addition to any Thanksgiving spread, but could easily be served as a side to dishes like chili or other soups throughout the year. And if you like to switch things up consider adding some jalapeno bits or other spices to the batter or you could also add Swiss or Parmesan cheese instead of the cheddar. Don’t be afraid to make it your own!
