We didn't get any new requests this month, but we do have what look like the answers to two of our previous requests.

Deana had asked for a recipe for a corn casserole from the south. I found this one on under "Southern US Cooking". Hope it's what you're looking for Deana!


Creole Corn Casserole

From the First Lady Bicentennial Cookbook.
  • 3 tablespoons bacon drippings
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 can shoe peg corn (Niblets), drained
  • 1 pound can tomatoes, drained
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 rib celery, finely chopped
  • 1/4 pound cheese, grated
  • Salt and pepper
Heat the drippings. Add flour and brown. Add corn, tomatoes, celery, and onion. Mix well and remove from heat. Make layers in a 2 quart casserole, alternating vegetables and grated cheese. Salt and pepper to taste. Bake 30 minutes (covered) in 350 degrees oven.
  • Yields: 8 servings
  • Preparation Time: 45 minutes

L.J. had written in to ask about a shrimp dip that used cream of something soup. Since I had never heard of one like that, I again turned to the web and found this one again starting at and following links.


Creamy Shrimp Dip

  • 1 - 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese
  • 1 - 10 oz. can cream of shrimp soup (or any other cream soup)
  • 4 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1 - 6 oz. can baby shrimp, drained
Place the cream cheese in a bowl. Microwave on MED-HIGH for 1 minute until softened. Stir in the soup, green onions, and shrimp. Microwave on MED for 2 minutes, or until hot, stirring halfway through cooking. Serve warm with chips.
  • Yields: 3 cups
  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Amazing Grace

Here's one that a reader sent in:

May all that we do and all that we say,
Help to brighten someone's day.
And may this meal give strength today,
To do your will at work and play.


I found this a couple of years ago and held onto it cuz it kinda applies to me. In fact, I think it applies to most of us "foodies". We just love to collect 'em!!

    I'll go get the scissors,
    And cut it out quick,
    This recipe looks plain delicious.
    And what I adore,
    Is new recipes for
    All kinds of unusual dishes.

    I've got them in folders,
    I've got them in drawers,
    I read them and just can't resist them.
    I cut them from ads,
    And from boxtops in scads,
    And someday I'll sort them and list them.

    But not at the moment,
    I'd best stash away, this recipe, gee, it's a dilly!!!
    And rustle some chow,
    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, let me see now,
    Should I open some soup or some chili?

TTFN . . . I'll leave you with this thought . . . You never can tell which way a pickle will squirt.

See you next month!!
