  1. I picked this recipe primarily for my vegetarian son. His only comment was, that he would have preferred lemon juice to the lime. I cooked the corn. Not real fond of raw. Made for Pick A Chef (PAC) Fall '09. :)
  2. Made this from Real Simple for a family gathering and they are asking me to bring it next time! Tasty, summery and very easy. I added extra lime juice and skipped the walnuts and we loved it!


Just a college student trying to feed myself right! If I do say so myself, I might be catching up to my mom. She makes such WONDERFUL food but never ever wrote a recipe in her life. Growing up.. mom worked so hard (still does) and just didnt have time to show me how to cook. So I try to find recipes to recreate what I remember loving when I lived with them. I call her to ask how to make something and she says "well you know some of this, a little of that.." Oh mommmmm. :) She now frequently gives me the cooking reigns and I am honored. Would NOT be possible without all of the fantastic recipes on RecipeZaar! I attend UNCW here in Wilmington, NC. I hope to teach 5th grade one day soon! Cooking is so much fun to me I could spend hours looking for new recipes My boyfriend supports my habit as well, haha. I wish I had more recipes to post that are original but as I said before.. I don't have very many. I am trying to experiment and come up with my own "style." I have gotten to be an expert grocery shopper! It's probably in my top 3 favorite things to do! Hah! <img src="">
