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 c

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 W

Baby Magic is Here! My Birth Story

Princesses get their way. And true to form, my little princess decided that she, and only she would be in control of when she arrived. Forget about me or the doctors trying to schedule ANYTHING! **This is a long post that goes into detail. Read at your own risk.** On Sunday, July 21st...no scratch that. On Saturday, July 20th, I was having cramps. They weren't too painful and were coming only about once every hour. Honestly, I thought I had gas. I had a good bit of visitors that day and told everybody that I felt like I was going to have the baby soon. I was already on bed rest and wasn't doing much. Thanks to some awesome friends, I had enough food that all I had to do was warm it and eat it. After all of the company left, I really just wanted to lie down. So I went to bed. I was awakened maybe 3 times during the night with these "cramps." The next morning I got out of bed about 10:30am (late for me) and took a shower, hoping that the heat would soothe me.
