A drawing and a good recipe for Easter!

Don't forget to check back tomorrow night for my drawing! I will draw a name out of my log cabin followers and send them a little gift from my Nature Store. To all my followers (and visitors!) - thank you for visiting me! I have met so many wonderful people!

On a side note, I have discovered a great recipe for corn casserole by Paula Deen! This would make a great side dish for the Easter table. My brother-in-law hooked me onto this and then I had to make it. Yummy and easy to make!

Corn Casserole - Paula Deen
1 (15 1/4-ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 (14 3/4-ounce) can cream-style corn
1 (8-ounce) package corn muffin mix (recommended: Jiffy)
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1 to 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, stir together the 2 cans of corn, corn muffin mix, sour cream, and melted butter. Pour into a greased 9 by 13-inch casserole dish. Bake for 45 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and top with Cheddar. Return to oven for 5 to 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Let stand for at least 5 minutes and then serve warm.

Sounds yummy!

Just a little something from Judy said...

Thank you Shelley for the recipe. All of my family enjoys corn and this looks like it would taste so good. I really like the new photo that you included, and I always like drawings.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Yum Shelley... I copied that recipe and think I'll try it sometime. It sounds so good!!!!! Thanks!

Hope you have had a good day.

George said...

Ooo! yummy. I have never tried any of her recipes. I will have to write that one down.
Nice picture of the pine!
Wish me luck! Hope I win, LOL!

Good Morning!
I have a similar recipe that calls for evap milk and then I add minced, dried onions and diced jalapenos to it. It is especially yummy!

I am still working on my Easter Menu, the only definite so far is pork tenderloin and mashed potatoes and gravy. Oh yes, ambrosia salad too! I haven't decided on the veggies yet, our daughters and their families are joining us so I need to find out what they want to make.

PS Pick Me! Pick Me! Pick Me!

Most anything Paula Deen makes sounds great to me. I have made something similar to this recipe for Thanksgiving. I do agree it would be a great addition to Easter dinner.

Ginger said...

That receipe sounds good.
I agree with you...I've met so many nice people blogging also. It's like having a ton of friends and checking in on them everyday to see what they are doing. When they don't blog for a few days I miss them.
I love your blog because you are such a sweet friend to everyone and always leave nice comments. I enjoy the pictures you take and post.

Kath said...

Thanks for your comment, Shelley.

I wish you guys the Happiest Easter ever!! :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Paula must have been cooking "lite" that day. Only one stick of "buttah".

It does sound good, though.

Christy said...

Ooh that sounds sinfully delightful. I love Paula Deen and this recipe sounds wonderful I just wish I had the foodnetwork. Living on a budget stinks some times but cable tv is not a necessity. I look forward to the give away who knows maybe I'll win.

grammy said...

I make something like that, but mine calls for eggs not sour cream .... I will have to try it.

Winifred said...

That sounds lovely. Wish I could get the ingredients. Don't think the cream style corn is available in the UK and I've never seen corn muffin mix. I'll have to investigate some websites!

Hope you have a lovely Easter and some really fine weather.

Winifred said...

I'd love to try this but don't thinke we have creamed corn or the corn muffin mx in the UK. Need to investigate some websites.

Have a lovely Easter hope you get some fine weather too.
