Skillet Fried Corn {Granny's Recipe}

Skillet Fried Corn , easiest recipe for fried corn that makes you think you are eating fresh corn cut off the cob and then fried in a skillet with bacon grease.  Just like Grandma use to make. Growing up in the 60's my mother would buy fresh produce from farmers in the area, and sometimes to save on the cost, we would go and pick it fresh ourselves. As a child, I felt like picking corn was a gruesome and suffocating job walking in between the corn stalks, which grew up over the top of your head.

Roasted Asparagus

Roasted Asparagus, baked with olive oil, minced garlic, and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese. Easy and elegant! When you see asparagus at the grocery stores, it is a sure sign of spring. While there is frozen and canned asparagus year around, there is nothing better than the delicate flavor of fresh asparagus. When I get fresh asparagus in season, I don't want the flavor totally smothered with a lot of ingredients that takes away from the simplistic taste. Here I just bake them in the oven with little olive oil and minced garlic and then season with coarse salt and coarse black pepper.
