She said it was her mother’s recipe and remembered eating it as a young girl.…

Freezing Sweet Corn

If any of you know my husband, you know his love for sweet corn. If you don’t happen to know my husband, let me tell you… eating upwards of four cobs of corn is not anything surprising in our household. He quite literally is a sweet corn monster.

I tried to fight saying goodbye to summer, but eventually I gave in… It helped that I got my boots out which have been hibernating over the summer.

Last month was all about soybeans. I’ve made…

Sweet Corn & Black Bean Salad with Chipotle Dressing

Well… my timing hasn’t been the best for my recipe posts. As I share this wonderful summer salad, it is a balmy 46 degrees outside. But I will carry on! We planted some Bt sweet corn this year, as we do every year since my husband has a serious obessession with it. I have a post about putting up sweet corn for the freezer in the works. But this salad takes a different take on enjoying the sweet corn besides…

Planting Bt Sweet Corn

I know they say don’t count your chickens before they hatch… But of the many things I am looking forward to this summer is a WHOLE BUNCH of sweet corn!! And although it JUST got planted yesterday, I am already making plans about what to do with it. For any of you who know my love/obsession with cream corn know that I will just be in heaven! Needless to say, I was ecstatic over my farmer telling me he bought…
