  1. Very good. I also do this with French beans, takes them to a whole new level.
  2. I prepared 1/2 of this recipe since there is only DH and myself. Since it was such a small amount I did not shape into a log, but just used a small metal container. It is really good! I also used frozen corn and microwaved it. This would be good on fresh steamed veggies, potatoes, grilled meats or anything you would normally use a pat of butter on! The chipotle flavor and the lime flavor compliment the corn and give it a crisp tangy flavor! Delicious! Thanks PaulaM-M!


Let's see.....I am a chauffeur mediator personal chef private nurse psychiatrist housekeeper cheerleader tutor AND personal shopper wrapped up in one tired, overweight package. Yep, I'm a stay-at-home mom. And anyone who interjects a "just" or an "only" into that descprition is likely to get my patented "up yours" look cast in their direction. heheh. It is my experience that SAHMs do just about everything BUT stay at home. I live in a little Western Kentucky town that I didn't even know existed until I met the red-headed redneck whom would eventually become my husband and father of my adorably rotten kids. Although unintentional, it would seem that I collect cookbooks. I have an entire kitchen cabinet completely full of them. Plus they are stuffed in boxes under the bed, on a bookshelf in the living room, and in storage. I especially love to find older cookbooks. The only thing better than an old cookbook, is an old cookbook with notes jotted on in the margin or on scraps of yellowed paper. I love the thought that someone once lovingly prepared meals for a treasured family using that cookbook. Pet peeves: Shopping carts left in parking lots- especially parking lots with slots for those carts. If you do this, don't worry, I won't hurl curses or produce at you. I'll simply shoot you a dirty look, sigh, then take your cart to the designated slot on my way to the store. LOL
