Creamed Corn

This has been a whirlwind of a weekend.  The best part though was going to the AZ Online BlogCon meet up.  It was my second time meeting other bloggers and it was so much nicer than the first go round.  We had a really fun group of girls.  We had so much fun in fact that were planning to get together every few months.  Yay!

Creamed Corn | White Lights on Wednesday
If you remember, Friday when I shared Chicken Cordon Bleu I promised you all the recipe for the best side dish EVER.  So here it is.  You’ve never had creamed corn like this.  Get that runny store bought stuff from a can out of your head.  This is totally different and you will most likely want to eat it all yourself and not even tell your family you made this corn so there’s more for you.  Just sayin’.

    Mr. B's favorite side dish at the holidays is the runny canned creamed corn. I have pinned so that I can surprise him with REAL creamed corn! Thanks for sharing this at the party this week Julie :-)

    This seriously IS the BEST side dish EVER. My husband and I LOVE it and he doesn’t like anything. He eats like a picky 4 year old. We have made this so many times and love it more and more each time. I’m so glad I found this! Thanks for sharing! Also, I saw someone ask what and equal amount of frozen corn would be…I just buy any bag of frozen corn and use the whole thing because I misread the recipe and thought you meant that the equivalent WAS a bag of frozen corn…Anyway, that turned out perfect and is how we’ve made it every time since. No particular brand. We’ve used a couple different ones. Just the normal size frozen corn. We’re actually making it again tonight, haha.

      I’m so glad you both like it Keeley!! Kim has a ton of really great recipes on her blog. I’ve made this countless times too, and I agree – it gets better every time.
