Corn Dish Casserole


Historians tell us it was served at the first Thanksgiving celebration, perhaps in the form of grain for bread or porridge. This simple and comforting corn dish is always part of our traditional Thanksgiving table.

This year I made it ahead and am planning to warm it in the microwave a little and finish reheating in the oven.  I literally pulled this from the oven just now, headed to the front porch for a photo because it is a dreary, rainy day with insufficient light for an indoor pic.  It is one of those family recipes that just hasn't made it to my blog. (It has sat as a draft for too long)

I think you will enjoy...

Corn Dish Casserole


1 box Jiffy Corn Muffin mix
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
1/3 to 1/2 cup sugar
8 oz. container of sour cream
1 can whole kernel corn- drained
1 can creamed corn


Preheat oven to 325 degrees

In bowl, combine the Jiffy Corn Muffin mix, egg and milk.

Stir in sugar, sour cream, and both cans of corn.

Pour into sprayed baking bowl or dish at least 8 X 8.

Bake for 1 hour.

I have also made individual servings by baking in ramekin dishes. 

Nice and puffed when I took them from the toaster oven, they do settle while cooling. 

Happy Thanksgiving
wishes to you!

Old Time Stuffing

Old Time Stuffing
My favorite stuffing.
does that mean I am old ;)
I found this recipe in my grocery story sale flyer, ages ago.
It is buttery and filled with the sweet crunch of sauteed onions and celery.
So good!

Harvard Beets

If your gang is anything like mine, they want the same line-up of stars, year after year, on the Thanksgiving buffet table. Not everyone likes everything, but all want their favorite food as part of the cast. So, especially for my husband, this ancient recipe for Harvard beets is included.

French Onion Soup

Another recipe served at our French-Inspired Birthday Lunch

Tuesday, November 18, 2014


Last week a few friends gather for lunch as we celebrated a birthday. This special time is more about the friendships we have shared for so many years and is filled with laughter, stories and up-dates about our children, grandkids and life in general.  There is always encouragement, joy and gratefulness for each other with these sweet ladies!

The girls came to my house this time, and just for fun, I prepared a French-themed menu.
I will be sharing the recipes here on my blog this week.
