My Top Favorite Corn Preparations

Corn rules! It makes an excellent side dish with just about anything, such as seafood, American, Latin-American or Spanish cuisines, and much much more. Corn is big in the Midwestern USA.

Making the Frosting was a Tough, But Happy Journey

That you see there is a frosting I made from scratch. It looks liked whipped cream, and yes, it does contain heavy cream. However, it is whipped buttercream icing.

That above is a pumpkin cheesecake I made from scratch. Why? I’ll tell you. Reason: I first had this at the Barnes & Noble café and theirs tasted delicious!

Pasta and Pepper Vodka Sauce… Pretty Delicious?

Once again, there is no tomato in this sauce due to my tomato allergy. It’s with bell peppers. Other times, this sauce tasted good. However, today, not so much. I don’t know what it was. Perhaps, it was because I couldn’t find the heavy cream until after I used a little bit of whole milkContinue reading “Pasta and Pepper Vodka Sauce… Pretty Delicious?”
