Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Ours was just what we needed: low key and spent mostly in our pajamas. I don’t know if you noticed the lack of posting last week, but our family had been battling a (thankfully mild) stomach bug, and so writing about (or looking at, or thinking about) food was just not going to happen. After a restful few days, though, we’re feeling back to normal. I’m ready to get back to recipe testing, and thinking about food makes me happy again. Whew.
So, on to the subject at hand – I don’t like corn. I used to, but then one fateful day back when I was 6 my parents made me finish my corn before leaving the table. It took what seemed like an eternity to me, I remember, and I’ve seriously had this weird mental block against it ever since. I’m slowly overcoming this, though, and can sometimes enjoy corn in things. I have also discovered that I like hominy, so I guess technically I do like corn at least in some capacity!
There’s one recipe in this week’s round-up, in fact, that I’m especially excited to share with you because it replicates the best hominy ever at Perini Ranch in Buffalo Gap, Texas. I’ve kept things well-rounded, though – I even included two straight-up (but not plain by any means) corn on the cob recipes because, even if I don’t like it, corn on the cob screams summer to me. You’ll find salads, dips, and even a sweet soufflé in this group, sure to inspire you for your summer gatherings.
For each photo click the recipe title below it and you’ll be taken to the original recipe post. You can also find all of these recipes pinned on my Pinterest account for easy repinning. As always, I hope you’ll discover some great recipes to try and some amazing food bloggers to follow.
