Roasted Corn

My husband and I love to take the kids over to a flea market that is not to far from us. While we are there we always stop and get fresh roast corn on the cobb. They dip it in butter and have tons of spices for you to add! Well one day I was watching food network and they showed you how to do that at home and it is so easy!

Preheat the oven to 350

Place whole corn on cob on oven racks (you do not have to wet or do anything else to it)

Roast in the oven for 30 minutes or until tender!

When finished if you grab the top of corn and grab the silk from the top and pull it you will get most of the silk off the corn so when you peel the corn you don’t have very much work to do!

Butter and Season as you like!

works for me wednesday! Restaurant Meals for Fraction of Cost

I don't know about you, but I love to go out to eat! The problem is it really just not possible right now! If you check the net, you can have your favorite restaurant food at home for a fraction of the price! one place you probably never thought of checking would be the restaurant website!

The olive garden and red lobster both have a ton of recipes on their site! If you are a novice cook, they also have cooking technique videos to help you out!

If favorite restaurant doesn't have recipes, you probably find a copycat recipe on the net that will come very close! Here are some copy cat recipe websites

Whatever!! (digiscrap freebie)

Lemon Squares!

It is summer and nothing reminds me summer than lemons! Never really cared for lemons until I tried these lemon bars! Oh my these are heavenly!

Lemon Squares


2 cups unsifted all purpose flour
1/2 cup unsifted icing sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup margarine

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a bowl, stir together the flour, icing sugar and salt. Cream in the margarine until the mixture turns into a pliable dough. Pat the dough evenly by hand into the bottom of a buttered 9"x13" pan.

Bake for 11 minutes. Let cool slightly before adding filling.

4 large eggs
1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup all purpose flour

While the base crust is baking, beat together all ingredients until smooth.

Pour over the hot baked base. Return the squares to the oven immediately. Bake at 350°F about 25 minutes until pale gold in color. During last 5 minutes, put a cookie sheet below the baking pan to be sure the bottom does not burn.

Remove from the oven. Let cool completely in the pan on a cake rack.

Cut into squares. Store in tightly covered container.

Digital Scrapbooking

I love digital scrapbooking. It is fun, more forgiving and economical. It is a great way to preserve your memories and not spend a fortune.I have gotten away from digital scrapbooking! I really enjoy it but I guess life just got in the way. I want to get back into it again. I was able to upgrade to cs4 this year and would love to do some more detailed work. What is your favorite Photoshop Tutorial (technical or creating elements)? I am trying to do more from scratch, because I just do not have the money to go out and purchase a ton of things!
