  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • salt, pepper and cayenne to taste

  1. Melt the butter in a pan over medium-high heat, add the corn, saute until the corn starts to turn golden brown, about 5 minutes, and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in the pan over medium-high heat add the onion, and pepper and saute until the onions are soft, about 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add the green onion, jalapeno and garlic and saute until fragrant, about a minute.
  4. Mix the corn, onions, peppers, mayonnaise, cheeses and cayenne in a bowl, reserving some of the cheese.
  5. Pour the mixture into a baking pan and top with the reserved cheese.
  6. Bake in a preheated 350F/180C oven until bubbling on the sides and golden brown on top, about 10-20 minutes.

Slow Cooker: Optionally implement steps 1-3, mix everything, place it in the slow cooker and cook until the cheese is nice and melted about 1-2 hours on high or 2-4 hours on low.

Yesterday a visit with Jennifer, Mike and her dogs.... Heaven meeting me at the gate...


and Sugar Fox

Just the sweetest dogs!!!

About 5 months ago I had super pain in my right shoulder. Went to Urgent Care and was told it was either a torn or inflamed rotator cuff.

Surgery was suggested. After talking with my cardiologist during my yearly checkup he said "don't get the surgery". I was going to my physical therapist Stacy and she said the same thing. That surgery takes over 6 months to heal and you can't do a thing with that arm! Zowie. So, Stacy said when I shower to run hot water on the shoulder and raise and lower it a dozen times slowly with the hot water on it. Then when I am standing or sitting, lean forward a bit, relax that arm, and just let it hang for bit. I must say that after about 3 months the pain is mostly gone! On occasion it will be a bit tender so I put heat on it. Amazing! YEAH, didn't have to have surgery!!!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Super Bowl Sunday. Ciao.

Stuffed Mushroom Day

Stuffed Mushroom Day is a special day that you can really sink your teeth into. If you like mushrooms, then you are certain to love them stuffed. Mushroom caps make the perfect bite-sized holders. Match them with your favorite stuffing, and you have a culinary treat.

People have been eating mushrooms for perhaps thousands of years. But, they were also shunned by many, as a lot of mushrooms are poisonous. It wasn't until the 19th century that they became popular.
Stuffed mushroom recipes go back to the 19th century. It is believed to have evolved from Italian stuffed zucchini flowers. Fortunately for us, there is a wide range of stuffed mushroom recipes, from simple  bread stuffings, to lobster, crab, cheeses and much, much more.
Did You Know? There are over 14,000 species of mushrooms. It is important to note, that many are poisonous. So, don't go out into the forest to pick them yourself.
Here is a quick easy stuffed mushroom recipe:
