I'm forever looking for ways to spruce up my veggies! I used to almost exclusively use canned vegetables, but now try to buy frozen as much as possible--not only are they healthier, but they taste MUCH better! This recipe is extremely easy and yet again, can be made with ingredients that you most likely have on hand! (You may want to half the recipe if you're making it for a family of 4-5 and cut back or even omit the salt altogether).
12 cups frozen corn 1 cup water 1/2 cup butter or margarine, cubed 2 teaspoons salt 1 teaspoon dill weed 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
In a large saucepan, bring corn and water to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 4-6 minutes or until corn is tender. Drain; stir in remaining ingredients.
If you were to look up the word "picky" in the dictionary, you would see a picture of my husband off to the left. Growing up, I was exposed to all sorts of different foods and encouraged to experiment with different flavors, but after meeting my husband, I somewhat locked myself into an eight to ten meal rotation and was reluctant to deviate. I have since given birth to two of the least picky eaters on the face of the Earth, thus inspiring me to transform my cooking style. I know many people, like myself, lead such hectic lives, so I strive to find recipes that are quick and easy--especially those that you can whip up with ingredients that you ordinarily have on hand!
A bit about me...I married my husband, Marcus, on June 1, 2003 and we welcomed our son Jacob on March 22, 2005. Our daughter, Madeline, was born on March 1, 2008. I stay home with the kids for the most part, but also work occasional shifts as a registered nurse at a local hospital. I truly hope you enjoy my blog. A special "thank you" to my sister, Sarah, for giving me the idea! Her creativity is hard to live up to, but I'm a very determined person and hope to make her proud :)
