Recipes: New Favorites

I thought I would share some new recipes I have tried out over the last year with a lot of success.  These are all on our favorite recipe list now.  Most of these blogs were found through posts on Pinterest – just one more reason I love this site.

Mama’s Skillet Corn (source here)


3 cups corn, cut fresh from cob ( I use frozen)
1/2 teaspoon salt
pepper to taste
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon flour
1/4 cup milk

Combine corn, salt, pepper, sugar, butter and water in a 10-inch skillet.
Cover and simmer 15 minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally.
Combine flour with milk, blending until smooth. Stir into corn.
Cook five more minutes, stirring constantly.



Ranch Style Chicken (source here)

I imagine that no matter what marinade you use, following this recipe would lead to delicious chicken.  Searing it a couple of pieces at the time in a cast iron skillet before baking it really sealed in the juices.  No dry or rubbery chicken!


Restaurant-style Filet Mignon (source here)


Mongolian Beef (source here) 

Chicken Corn Chowder (source here)

I love this recipe – the fact that it is so easy is an added bonus.  I always leave out the mushrooms, because I’m not a fan.

Homemade Lemonade (source here)

I decided a couple of weeks ago to give up sodas and flavored drink mixes.  It is not so much for cutting calories out (although that never hurts) as it is an easy way to cut out some of the chemicals that I don’t really want going into my body.  In return, I have been consuming a lot more water, but sometimes I just want some flavor in a drink.  That is what prompted me to find a lemonade recipe – and this one is really good – that uses just water, lemons and sugar (I use organic).  I cut back the amount of sugar to between 1-1/4 and 1-1/2 cups.
