Creamy Corn & Asparagus Soup

Creamy Corn & Aspagagus Soup 1
When the corn in season is about to be no more…I buy a few dozen, cut the corn off the cob then freeze the corn to be used in the fall and winter. So when I make this rich and creamy soup the corn is about as fresh as it gets this late in the season. And what I love about soups like this is they get better every day…You taste the sweet corn on the front of your bite and the asparagus at the end.  Continue reading

Here’s my spin on this taco which I’m gladly renaming Cowgirl Tacos! Continue reading

Creamy Corn Chowder

As you can imagine I buy more corn than we can eat at a sitting so corn chowder is something I look forward to  making every year. You will also see my corn salad and salsa in the near future… Continue reading
