Zucchini Corn Cakes

Zucchini Corn Cakes


Summer and it’s abundance of fresh produce makes it so easy to fix simple and delicious light meals.  These fresh Zucchini Corn Cakes are perfect for any meal, any time of the day.  They are so fresh and so simple to make, plus they store wonderfully in the fridge for a simple lunch or light dinner.   Make a big batch and keep them on hand –  They are actually good warm or cold, so you can just grab one out of the frig on the go.   The crunchy corn and fresh garden flavors make a wonderful treat.

I like to serve them warm or cold with a dollop of  sour cream, some fresh tomatoes and fresh herbs, or salsa for a great side dish.  To make a light meal or meatless Monday, just add a  fresh salad packed with veggies.  We also love them with this Southwest Dipping Sauce.

Crockpot Refried Beans

Crockpot Refried Beans

Seriously Refried Beans.  Beans don't seem that appealing I know.  Refried beans were never one of those things that I really wanted to dip in a spoon and just eat. The refried beans out of a can just don't seem that appetizing. However, since I have started making my own I can't get enough of them. These beans are seriously AMAZING!  I can't even describe the difference between homemade and the canned ones.  They are not even really the same thing at all.   I'd be happy with a bowl of these Refried Beans and a bag of tortilla chips - Dinner!

It does take a little thought ahead of time to make sure your beans have long enough to cook, but other than that they are so simple. I live to double the recipe (make sure your crockpot is big enough) and freeze them in smaller portions to pull out when we need them.

Roasted Corn Relish

Roasted Corn Relish

We like to make fajitas a lot at our house, especially in the summer time when we can take the steak or chicken out to the grill. It is one of those meals every one can enjoy.  It is so simple to throw a couple of extras out on the grill to make this Roasted Corn Relish.  It takes just a few minutes but makes such a difference.  We like to eat it either on the fajitas or on the side with some chips as a dip.  Either way it is delicious.  Of course this Roasted Corn Relish can be made with anything or served as an appetizer or just an afternoon snack, any way you choose.
