Food Romance

Most people like food, some people love food, I however am passionate about food. Not so much eating it, but preparing it and sharing it with others. I love the way food flavors and colors marry together into an exciting eating experience. I love to cook as if I am on a journey, delving into the untried and unknown only to find a new dish, both pleasing to the eye as well as the pallet. I have always been lucky with food, always seemed to find the right combination of ingredients, and never liked using a recipe. Repeats of dishes often differ slightly in taste and texture than they did the last time they were prepared, giving the palate a familiar flavor, but a new experience, a new romance....

Pork with Apples and Cream Corn


can_creamed_cornFirst let me say, This is NOT cream corn!

                                                         THIS IS!        2010-10-29_17-59-07_189

With that said, start with 20 oz of frozen corn, add 8 oz of whipping cream, 1 cup of milk, 6 tsp of sugar and some pepper to your liking.  ( I use the white pepper, it looks nicer)

Combine these and bring to an easy boil.  (when you add the cream to the frozen corn it will turn to a block of ice, don’t worry, it will break up.)

Melt 3 Tbsp butter and mix in 3 Tbsp of flour, this will make a thick paste.  Add to the corn and reduce the heat.  Your corn should thicken up nicely now.  Keep on low heat until you are ready to serve.                  


Here are the pork steaks.  I like to spray them down with PAM or olive oil and season with Sweet Mesquite seasoning.  People ask about this seasoning often so I will give up the secret.  Here it is, and you find it at Costco.

Grill the meat to your liking.

Here I have prepared an apple topping for the pork.  Sliced apples, butter, brown sugar and cinnamon, like you would do for a pie filling.  I cooked it until the apples were soft and served them over the meat.


I mashed potatos and added sour cream, bacon bits, and a heaping pile of minced garlic.  I spread it out in a casserole dish and covered with grated cheese.  Bake this in the oven until cheese is melted.     2010-10-29_18-11-34_912

I finished the dinner off with a blueberry pie, not giving out the recipe, but had to mention it for the complete effect.      


Here is the complete dinner, I hope you choose to give it a try sometime.
