Mexican Street Corn

IMG_1608 (1)

It’s corn season and this recipe is so delicious. If you are looking for a fun side dish at your next barbecue give this one a try. Mexican street corn, or elote, is a common street food south of the border. It’s coated in a flavorful creamy sauce and topped with cotija cheese. You may have had this at local fairs or markets in the U.S. I love corn on the cob in the summer. Fresh, local, and so good with butter and a little salt and pepper. After trying this recipe I may never go back to plain butter.

You can do all of the prep the night before your cookout. Mix up the creamy sauce and have the corn husked and ready to go. I tied off the husks with some twine to create a pretty Pinterest-worthy handle. That’s not necessary though. If you don’t want to go through the trouble, just remove all the husks and grill. I cooked my corn on a grill plate on my stove top. It worked great if you’ve got one.

I highly recommend elote for corn lovers out there. It’s yummy, messy, and fun. Go ahead, mix things up at your next summer gathering. Your guests will thank you for it. The link to my column is below. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy!

Love you all,

It’s Only a Pound

FullSizeRender

I am very happy to share with you my latest article on Mustard Seed Sentinel. I love to bake, and this pound cake is easy and delicious. I came across this fantastic recipe several years ago in Southern LivingInstead of a bundt pan, I prefer loaf pans. I use three regular size pans, and freeze at least two of them. They thaw quickly, and it’s nice to have a dessert on hand.

This new column has been so much fun for me. Baking and cooking are a passion of mine. Pound cake came to mind right away for June. It made me think of summer when topped with fresh berries and homemade whipped cream. Give this simple, yummy dessert a try. You’ll get a lot of smiles from this one. Make your life sweeter with some cake now and then.

Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate your support.

Love you all,

Meghan

Check Out My Brand New Column

IMG_E8553

I am so excited to share my brand new monthly column “Meghan’s Corner“, featured in Mustard Seed Sentinel. I love writing about my faith on here, but this new column will have a variety of topics, with my faith woven through. This first article is about my love of cooking. It’s something I am passionate about. Cooking is a fun, creative outlet for me, when I’ve got the time. I’ve included two very easy recipes. I was inspired by spring, and the fresh ingredients available. I used the cilantro from my garden for the pico de gallo.

It’s a blessing for me to have an opportunity like this. I am truly grateful to Joanne, the publisher of Mustard Seed Sentinel. Thanks for dropping in, and sharing in my good news. I hope you enjoy my article and recipes. Your support means so much to me.
