June Recipe Wrap~up
Happy Friday, the last Friday in June ~ I hate to see it go.
Before we get started with my June Recipe Wrap~Up, I want to share with you some special news. Today I’m featured over at Stacey’s Poofing the Pillow‘s home tour. I’m sharing 5 rooms from our home on Stacey’s monthly home tour. I hope you enjoy.
Now, let’s review this month’s recipes, cooking tips and techniques. I hope you love them.
Southern Summer Creamed Corn
After we returned from our trip to Savannah, Charleston and Asheville, I was in a totally Southern frame of mind. This recipe for Southern Summer Creamed Corn was near and dear to my love of corn.
Skillet Sautéed Corn and Okra
Then I couldn’t resist one more easy and delicious corn recipe, but I added another of my favorite summer vegetables, okra, to make Skillet Sautéed Corn and Okra.
How to Make Fried Green Tomatoes
I hope you love fried green tomatoes because here I shared a cooking lesson: How to Make Fried Green Tomatoes.
Yummy Avocado Cream Sauce
Did you think avocados were only good for guacamole and sliced on a sandwich? Well, here is a Yummy Avocado Cream Sauce to show you another way to use them.
Fried Green Tomatoes with Polenta and Avocado Cream Sauce
Then I shared how to put a complete dish together using the Fried Green Tomatoes with Polenta and the Yummy Avocado Cream Sauce. Fit for a king. Or a Southern gentleman. My Southern gentleman loved it.

Next I shared one of my must~have, use~all~the~time tools in the kitchen, a Cast~Iron Skillet. Check out an overview of why you need to have one and how to use this essential piece of cooking equipment.
Summer White Wine Sangria
