I receive a lot of questions about me and my blog.
Ovi and I were talking about all of the food we loved as kids, and corn dogs were really high on the list. The ones from our childhood usually came in a giant frozen box. Toss them in the microwave, and 2 minutes later you would have a meal on a stick. They were rubbery, salty, and …..strangely delicious. They either came out of the freezer, or from a hot dog stand in the mall where they are deep fried to greasy perfection. Come to think of it, I’ve actually never had a homemade corn dog until we whipped up these little cuties.
Corn Casserole is one of my favorite sides during the holidays or at potlucks during any time of the year. It is the easiest recipe to throw together and can be prepared with various ingredients mixed in. Me? I like it in its simplest form, with mainly cheese, corn and corn bread.
There’s nothing like a french fried potato. The taste, the texture, the dip-ability; it’s probably one of my favorite go-to comfort foods. However, I don’t need the fat of an actual deep fried potato, and I certainly do not favor processed french fries that come from the frozen food section of the grocery store.

Last night, I decided to make one of my favorite cookies. These little pastry swirls are so delish! I usually use my favorite pie crust recipe, which I have previously posted, but I decided to try a pastry recipe by the Barefoot Contessa. This recipe calls for lots of butter! I used my 14-cup Cuisinart Food Processor (love it) to make the pastry dough. It's so easy in a food processor, so if you haven't invested in one, do so very soon!
