The engine of our food machine (and, sometimes, our car machines), corn is a summer staple from sea to shining sea.
A light vegetable soup using canned cream of mushroom soup as a base.
A great alternative to a standard rice accompaniment.
A wonderful New Orleans-style soup that is a best seller at my family-owned restaurant. Serve with crackers. I like to season my shrimp with 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire, 1 tablespoon of Season All(R), and 2 teaspoons of hot sauce (optional).
This recipe does not call for beans, and I recommend you try it that way. They can always be added later if someone (like my wife) insists on ruining it with beans. While deer hunting on the Nueces River, someone shot some 'camp meat', and I had to cook it up. I diced it into 1/4 inch cubes, browned it in a cast iron pot over an open fire, and went from there. I didn't have oregano, corn meal, crackers or garlic, but served flour tortillas with it and everyone enjoyed it.
Very, very, good as a leftover once it has a chance for the flavors to blend together. Perfect for a cold day. I freeze the extra in single serving size containers and heat in the microwave for a quick, hearty lunch!
This is a quick recipe that I threw together one night. Not really sure what to make, I basically threw together whatever was in my pantry and it turned out great.
My favorite summer recipe I created. Its refreshing and very tasty. Must be served immediately. Try with scallops instead of crab!
These are those delicious cheese balls that Chester Cheeto has but home made.
This is a mix of Indian and Chinese cuisine packaged into a delicious dish. Can be served with rice, noodles, or by itself. Fried chicken dumplings in a delicious and spicy sauce.
Whenever we go to a party or BBQ everyone always asks us to bring this. It's easy and a hit! Family, Friends and Kids love this. Great on its own or forego the chicken and just use the salad if attending a BBQ or serve with steak or other meats etc or a vegetarian dish.
I nice twist on regular chili using both Great Northern and Kidney beans. Marinating and grilling the chicken makes a difference as to sauteing it. This could easily become a vegetarian dish by omitting the chicken of course and the chicken broth and adding more of your favorite veggies. As for the spices, i like to use way more. adjust them to your liking. Enjoy!
A quick and easy way to satisfy everybody!!! Grade A.

Milk and creamed corn make this chowder thick and creamy.
This sugar-free variation is sweet and tangy and great as a dip, on chicken or pork, or as a salad topping or side dish.
A great pasta salad with Imitation crab meat, ham and sunflower seeds.
A delicious and hearty soup with sausage, beans, and vegetables that is thick enough to make a meal! I serve this with a side of Italian bread with butter or extra virgin olive oil, oregano, toasted garlic, and basil to taste.
This thick chili has a good, full burn with unexpected little bits of sweetness.
