Cream of the Corn

Comfort foods warm the soul. That's why we call them comfort foods right? They relax you, they put you in a better mood, they are delicious.

In my struggle with loving good food, I find that some battles I'm just not meant to win. Creamed Corn is one of those battles. I'm not talking about the canned stuff that you have to mix with a can of whole kernel corn so you can eat it either. Don't act like you like that stuff out of a can!

I'm talking easy, homemade, full of love. So easy, a person that thinks they can't cook can do it. Here, I made it for a crowd.







The hardest part about this is sauteing the veggies. A quick search for creamed corn will yield you tons of results. I'll explain what I did. This makes enough to feed a small army. Cut the recipe in half if you like, but everyone will want seconds or thirds.

Crockpot Creamed Corn

Ingredients
1 small onion - diced
1/2 of a green bell pepper - diced
3 cloves of garlic - chopped
4 bags of frozen corn (any variety) - regular sized bags 10oz maybe?
2 sticks of unsalted butter
2-8oz blocks of cream cheese
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup milk (I use whole milk)
Seasonings to your liking - salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder

Saute the onions and green peppers in a little olive until the veggies are tender. Add the chopped garlic and saute for 1 more minute.

Add all ingredients to the slow cooker. I like to use a slow cooker liner for easier cleanup. I'm sure if you cut the butter and cream cheese up it will melt faster. I don't, and it still turns out just fine!

You can cook this on low for about 4 hours or on high for about 2 hours. I prefer on low. After about an hour, give everything a good stir to combine. Once everything is combined and heated through, enjoy!

There are so many variations! I've made this with bacon, jalapenos, green onions, chives, the possibilities are truly endless! I love it with a good piece of cornbread!

Make this and tell me if you like it! I suspect if you don't like cream cheese, you won't like this, but you never know until you try!

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks!

Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash!

I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL

I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one.



Here are what this product claims to be…

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities.




If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome.

Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you show up empty…

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh.

She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes...



After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard!



She really enjoys Dial Watery Melon scen…
