I'm picking up fresh Iowa sweet corn today from a local farmer and friend. I cannot wait! We'll eat some, but most will be frozen using this method. If you've never had fresh sweet corn from the Midwest you are missing out. It is one of our little treasures here in the Heartland.
I plan on using it later for just plain eating, in dips, in soups come this fall and probably some casseroles. Biting into those sweet kernels later this year will through me back to summer almost immediately. I cannot wait.
I hope my mom delivers.
If you haven't made this - or heard about it - its due time that you get with it! It looks tricky but it isn't. The only requirement is that it HAS to be refrigerated for 3 days prior to eating.
That is the hard part.
My tomatoes are coming in! I get nervous and excited all at the same time when this happens. Excited because I get to make a ton of delicious things with them - salsa, spaghetti sauce, etc. But nervous because I have to make a ton of things with them - salsa, spaghetti sauce, etc. Get my drift? My kitchen gets a little busy.
But tonight, I'm creating a French Bread Garlic Caprese Bread. I cannot wait to show you tomorrow!
Don't these Strawberry Lemonade Cookies look fabulous? I might have to make some for vacation later next week. I'm pretty sure they would be a hit.
By the way, after asking you all on Facebook yesterday about what to prep and make ahead for vacation, I've got some great ideas! Everything from pancakes and muffins for breakfast to walking tacos for lunch and even sloppy joes in the crock pot for easy dinners. I'm making my list!
And lastly, I just want to throw this out there.
Over the years I've had various companies contact me either wanting me to help promote their product or working with them in various ways. And yes, I love doing this! As long as I believe in your product or think I may believe in your product I'm willing to try it out.
Other ideas of how I can work with you: recipe development, taste tester, contest judge, freelance writer, the list goes on and on. So if you are reading and want your product or brand to reach thousands a day, I'm the girl for you!
Alright, business is done!
