another fabulous recipe thanks to pinterest!!!!

well, well, well, looks who's posting for the 3rd time this week!

anyway, as if you didn't already know i am obsessed with pinterest!

well, tonight i made a summer corn cakes recipe with salsa that i actually found on LAUREN CONRAD's pinterest page.

of course, i had to stop at whole foods and pick up a few ingredients:
i'll be honest, i have never made corn cakes before. so the thought of putting corn in a food processor was a little strange to me! lol!
the recipe is super easy to make though, even though i tweaked the recipe a little. for example, i added some cilantro to the mix and instead of buttermilk i used milk and chobani greek yogurt.

then into the pan, with my fish spatula from williams-sonoma. if i had to pick one kitchen item i couldn't live without aside from the obvious wusthof knife set, all-clad pans, kitchen aid stand mixer [a MUST for every bridal registry that i still NEVER use!], my "must have" dualit toaster, etc... the one item i couldn't live without is my fish spatula! def. worth the $30.00!

note to self: i probably should have made the avocado and salsa mix  prior to making the corn cakes, but in the end it really didn't matter.  ha! ha!

finally, a photo of my version of summer corn cakes with salsa. yum!!!!

if you would like the recipe you can find it (and ME) on PINTEREST by clicking on the photo link below:

def. worth trying and the recipe makes a lot of corn cakes! anyone know if you can freeze the recipe? the recipe says you can store it in the fridge for up to 2 days? anyone?!?!!


  1. Given the plight of the Corn Farmers around here I know that the corn must have been a pretty penny.

  2. Oh my, this recipe looks so yummy. Gotta love Pinterest.

  3. Wow - this recipe looks delicious! I love Pinterest too!

  4. New to your blog. The corn cakes look SO yummy! Definitely pinning those suckers!

    PS. I had a Kitchen Aid Mixer for a few years. When I first got it I baked a lot with it. Then it just sat. I eventually sold it. My husband is military so we have to keep our household goods weight down. I'd rather have the money than the additional weight. I'm pretty sure I put the money towards my first iPhone. ;) My mom, on the other hand, cooks and bakes with hers daily. Last Christmas she got the pasta-maker attachment & we made homemade pasta.

  5. I can waste hours, even days, on pinterest! It just sucks me in and I can't stop!! haha

    I need to get me one of those spatulas and that recipe looks super yummy!

  10. Hi this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you
    have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  11. First of all I want to say wonderful blog!

    I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Thank you!
