You may remember back a few months ago when I posted a defining example of this blog’s title. That example was a corn casserole whose photo nearly moved me to tears of joy.

(Seriously, I love corn)

Anyhow,  I finally got around to finally trying the recipe.

It was super easy and so delicious. You basically throw everything into the casserole dish and pop it in the oven, there’s really no prep for this. If you have 5 minutes to open a couple cans and containers and measure 2 or 3 things then you’re golden. And once you get it into the oven you can use the hour it needs to bake to go for a jog and burn off a few calories to make room for the massive amounts of this casserole you’re going to want to eat. Or I suppose you could pace around the house turning on the oven light every 5 minutes wondering when it’ll be done like I did.

2 cans of corn, 2 eggs, 1 cup of cream, 1 cup sour cream, a bit of flour and some corn meal, some baking powder and oil and a pinch of sugar, throw it in a dish, top it with butter, bake and wham…heaven. Seriously, I couldn’t even wait for this to cool properly before I shoved a spoonful in my mouth and told my tongue to deal with the heat.

I did have one complaint though, (aside from my singed taste buds…but that’s my own fault really) my casserole didn’t quite set up as well as I’d hoped. I checked it’s jiggly-ness after the allotted baking time and it still seemed a bit too…jiggly, so i gave it another 10 minutes or so until I deemed the top was as brown and crispy as I could handle and while the extra time did help a bit, it was still rather jiggly. This may be an issue with my oven not working as well as it should (it is almost 22 years old), or it could have been my own fault in not measuring carefully enough (I’ve been known to measure with a bit of reckless abandon from time to time…what?! it’s liberating!). Whatever the problem may have been, I think I might tweak the recipe a bit when I make this again (oh and I will make this again) and drain the canned corn even though it says not to (more reckless abandon!!)

Again, Recipe is here

Go! try it!

YAY! I found a new recipe to play with!

Suzanne McMinn’s Homemade “cake mix” I found at Chickens in the Road.  The cake mix can be made up on the spot, or weeks in advance and kept in your pantry like a box mix ready to use when you need it by adding the wet ingredients and is great when trying a recipe that calls for a box mix when you

A) don’t have one
or
B) don’t like all the junk in a mix and want to make yours from scratch!
I have so many plans for you cake mix…sooo many plans…mwahahaha

Yellow cake mix recipe

Ingredients:

Dry:
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 cup non-fat dry milk

Wet:

1/2 cup butter, softened

I know exactly what I’ll be using this for…

She’s great. I’m completely in love with her cinnamon roll cupcakes I can’t believe I’ve never seen that before! The recipes are fresh and new (not the same things recycled from blog to blog that you sometimes see), posts include things other than just sweets and treats in case your sweet tooth needs a rest (HA! doubtful),  it’s fun and easy to read, and she has the cutest little pictures with some great colors in both the food and the background!

heelllooooo gorgeous!

my inner glutton wants to grab a spoon and just dig in as is…but I know better than to let it.  😛

I love her harry potter cupcakes… with the adorable little chocolate snitch wings

her awesome dairy free cheesecake…on a stick no less!

I’m also in love with her anti-WW category haha.

I could go on and on but I’ll just give you a link instead.

The blog also just happens to be celebrating it’s 2nd blogiversary and is having a giveaway for some pretty nifty stuff including a cupcake carrier (I have some just like it and love that brand!) and some BRIGHT cupcake liners! love the colors!

But I digress. My point is that you should be reading this blog. Right now.
