Mexican Street Corn

Mexican Street Corn - grilled for 8 minutes, then slathered in a spicy, cheesy mix! A favorite.

Maybe the world doesn’t need another post on “Mexican Street Corn” or what is really our American version based off of the classic “Elotes.” I do, though – or I’m hitting up sites when I’m making dinner, trying to find the particulars. You’d think I’d be able to remember grill 8 to 10 minutes, lol!

Bob Armstrong Chile con Queso

We seem to be having Cinco de Mayo week rather than just a day here at the Frugal household! Really, the three previous posts are all leading up to this very special recipe, Bob Armstrong’s Chile con Queso. What can I say? This is a masterpiece. I wish I could have gotten this recipe to you before the holiday, but make it anytime or pin it for later!

Raspberry Filled Cupcakes with White Chocolate Buttercream

Happy Valentine’s Day! Valentine’s Day is often thought of as the day we celebrate our sweetheart. Flowers, chocolate, cards and cupcakes are all appropriate. Yeah, see how I worked that Cupcake in? Slick, huh? In my defense, this is a Raspberry Filled Cupcake topped with Carlee’s White Chocolate Buttercream. It’s not to be missed.

Classic Lipton’s Onion Soup Dip

Did you grow up with this dip made from Lipton’s Onion Soup and Sour Cream? I did, and we considered it a real treat at our house. Served, of course, with Lay’s Potato Chips, the ridged ones. Or maybe it WAS Ruffles, as Kathryn pointed out in her comment. I don’t think Lay’s Wavy were out way back when in the ’60’s!

Zippy Sun-dried Tomato Dip

You know those sun-dried tomatoes I made a couple weeks ago? These Oven Dried Sun-dried Tomatoes? I probably should have been making them 24/7 because I discovered a fantastic way to use them! Ta-Dahhh! Zippy Sun-dried Tomato Dip.

Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread

I love that Quick Breads just seem to scream “good home cooking” don’t you? They’re great for all kinds of occasions: when company is dropping by, for brunch, or maybe to take to the office or to a family who needs a bit of a boost. This would make anyone feel better, at least while they’re eating it!

Sour Cream Rhubarb Coffee Cake

Have I ever told you I’m nuts about Rhubarb? Ever since I was little – we kids used to take the old blue melamine sugar bowl (this is before we got the Corelle) and sit in the shade of our honeysuckle hedge and pull rhubarb, dip it in the sugar and take a bite. And repeat. Sweet & sour.
