in the kitchen

I'm sure most of you have at least heard about Pioneer Woman. Well, lately I've read on several other blogs how addicting her site is. Well, a couple of weeks ago I decided to venture over to see what all the hype was about and let me tell you, it's true! She is like wonder woman! She is hilarious, has 4 kids, home schools, cooks, blogs, and does photography! Oh yeah her family also lives on a farm and runs it! So, if you have some time to spare go check her out! She also is in the middle of writing a hilarious little series on how she met her husband - called "Black Heels to Tractor Wheels". I would recommend reading this too!
Well, the below 2 recipes came straight from her website!
1st - Fresh Corn Casserole {told you I can't get enough corn lately}
You need: corn - about 8 ears, heavy cream, salt, pepper, butter
Easy, huh?
Notice the computer in the background with her website and the recipe pulled up.
You can go here and see a much better detailed version of the recipe.
But the short version goes like this:
Cut off all the corn from the cob and then use the dull side of your knife to scrap out all the milky goodness. {I used a bundt pan so I could put the cob in the hole in the middle to make it easier to cut the kernels off and they would all fall in the pan. **Warning-this part can get a little messy}
Mix in about 2/3 cup of heavy cream - or just enough to coat the kernels
Add salt and pepper to taste
Put a couple of tablespoons of butter on top
Pop in the oven and bake at 350 for about 45 minutes
Enjoy!
2nd recipe is blueberry cobbler.
You need: 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, 1 stick butter, blueberries, 1 cup milk
Again, easy, huh?!


Again you can find a much better version of this recipe here - complete with step by step pictures!

Melt the butter in the microwave.
Mix together flour and sugar.
Whisk in 1 cup of milk {I only had skim milk so I used just a tad of heavy cream so it wouldn't come out too runny- but if you have whole milk or something other than skim then I would just use milk}.
Add melted butter and mix.
Butter baking dish.
Pour batter in dish.
Pour rinsed blueberries on top of batter.
Sprinkle an extra 1/4 cup of sugar on top.
Bake @ 350 for 1 hour.

I actually made this last year before I even knew who Pioneer Woman was. I got the recipe from someone else. Well, it's one of my favorites. It is delicious and so easy!
Enjoy!
So, I would really recommend checking out her blog.
Did I tell you guys Coop got a haircut? He's feeling much cooler with it and is ready for the warm weather! He's a doll!
