I gotta tell you guys sumpin. See, I live in Minnesota but grew up in Iowa. So I know corn! But what are you gonna do when you *need* corn and you can’t wait for those magical days in late summer to get your fix? Maybe you want corn and you can’t get that perfect ins season corn? Maybe the corn you have isn’t quite at its peak or you left it to sit just a bit too long? Or the packages of corn you bought didn’t quite live up to expectations? That’s when a recipe like this Sweet Corn in Milk & Butter is going to shine!
I always wanted to make a whole roasted cauliflower (talk about drama!) and remember when I was younger looking at recipes in cookbooks (and probably stuffy old cookbooks at that!) The cauliflower took fuh-evah to cook! Like hours forever. And for some reason, I thought they were reserved for “Dinner Party” status. If you’ve never been tempted to make one before because you thought they were too fancy, too difficult, or took too much time, take a look at this beauty: Quicker Whole Roasted Cauliflower.
I must be getting old and decrepit (better than the alternative, as they say!) and for sure, I find my memory slipping a bit here and there. (What did I come into this room for is just the beginning, lol!) After I made this Classic Crazy Broccoli Salad I remembered I already have another version here on my site. That one is a lighter no Mayo version. So that’s why I’m calling this one “Classic.” (And it really is!)
We’re sitting here in the Twin Cities just waiting to get slammed by a blizzard, and we’re not alone. There’s a whole swath across the upper Midwest. I keep checking the weather but it’s so bright and sunny it’s easy to be in denial. Maybe they’re exaggerating. Maybe we’ll get missed! One thing I do know? We’re having these Oven Roasted Cherry Tomatoes & they’re like a breath of sunshine no matter what the weather and what the time of year.
The other day I shared my Instant Pot Brazilian Feijoada. It’s marvelous and easy and really set to be a family favorite. But yanno what else is marvelous and easy? The Brazilian Style Collard Greens I made to go along with that dish. These fresh and tender greens are minutes to make and while I love a traditional style Southern Collard Greens, these are a whole different animal.
