When I asked if anybody was interested in guest posting for me, Krista from Everyday Moms Meals was first to reach out and lend a hand. My mother in law had been sick and in the hospital since September and just left an assisted living facility this past Sunday. While we were focusing all our attention to her, my father in law became ill and had to have major emergency surgery. He has had a few setbacks since his surgery but is hopefully on his long road to recovery. So as you can imagine most of our time has been spent at hospitals and the like. So I really haven't had much time to blog new recipes.
I have been following Krista for quite some time now and I really enjoy her recipes and her blog. If you have not visited Everyday Moms Meals, please do stop by and grab a recipe or two to feed your family. You will be happy you did. Take it away Krista....
I have been married to the love of my life, Adam for 10 years now and the light of my world is my 9 year old son Alex, aka "Monkey". We are a Taekwondo family, with both of my "boys" training and competing. When I'm not in the kitchen I enjoy time with my family and friends, a good book, and a little retail therapy now and again.
I hope you will stop by EMM sometime, and join our foodie family. You can also find me on Facebook, Twittter, Pinterest, and Instagram.
Now, for something yummy to eat!
Thanksgiving and Christmas are both racing towards us. I realize some of you out there don't even want to think about it, and I respect that. But I also know there are many out there, who like me, are planners extraordinaire and are already making , , and are determined to be fully prepared when the holidays descend upon us. So, for those in that category, I offer a fantastic idea that is easy and free of stress, delicious and something your guests will flip for!
We love canned creamed corn, but this takes that to a whole new. The sweetness, the creaminess, the silky texture, all of these lead to the most scrumptious corn side dish I've ever made. We couldn't stop eating it! I think this would compliment any protein that is hitting your Thanksgiving or Christmas table.
If you're planning your holiday meals already,this one down! If you're just looking for a new veggie for your weeknight meals, write this down. Or better yet, make it now to "test-run" and then make it again at the holidays. Your family will love every bite, and you will love how simple and fresh it is.
Skillet Creamed Corn
4 ears of corn, kernels removed and "milked" (See note below)
1/4 c. butter
1/2 c. half-and-half
1 TBS cornstarch
1 TBS sugar
Salt and Pepper to taste
Dried parsley for garnish
In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add corn kernels and half-and-half. Stir well. Sprinkle with cornstarch, sugar, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally for about 12 minutes, until thickened. Transfer to servingand garnish. *NOTE* To get the most flavor from your corn, after the kernels are , slide the back of your knife down "milking" the corn. This is a very starchy liquid that will enhance the corn flavor.
Thank you so much Krista for lending me a hand....I could not thank you enough. This recipe looks super simple and super easy....it is going on my "to try" list soon.
