    I didn't much care fur these, maybe it was the corn, I don't care for canned veggies, but these were a very floury, doughy, greasy mess. idk, maybe because I was out of onions. I'm used to that "Gritty" Crispiness of the cornmeal and these just didn't have it. next time I'll step down(first time making them) and leave it up to Mom. hers are delicious

    Loved these!! I used whole kernal corn, very chunky, juicy texture...even had some for breakfast the next day! My husband and kids would probably like them even more if i had used the cream corn, i'll have to try that next time. I did add a little parsley to batter and a tiny bit of fresh ground pepper. Definitely not your typical hush puppy...so much better!

    These are even better than what they serve in restaurants--the creamed corn is a perfect ingredient for flavor and moistness. I added enough creamed corn to the mix in order to be able to drop it by spoonfuls into the hot oil, so I skipped adding beer or milk, no need for that. This will be the recipe I use for hush puppies from now on, easy and delicious.

    These were very easy to prepare. First time I have had a hush puppy with more flour than cornmeal. They tasted pretty good and were very moist. Thanks peppermintkitty. Bullwinkle


I am retired and live in Oklahoma. We use to raise scottish terriers, but now just enjoy having 3..one of which is a rare wheatland scotty. We have 2 grown daughters and my oldest has my grandson & granddaughter. Katy is almost 13 now, and I love and cherish the time she spends with me. My youngest dd is FINALLY having a baby,,a little girl due on April 1 '05. We are very excited! Hubby and I love taking out our pontoon boat every chance we get...we love to fish, but I'm happy just to be out on the water :) I love all kinds of cookbooks, especially southwest and cooking for two meals. Of course Zaar is the best recipe site on the net! I've started copying zaar recipes for my granddaughter and she says she'll never be able to make them all :) My hobbies include my dogs,,grandkids, painting art hobbies, and most crafting...love garage sales too!! I really love working outside in my gardens, but health and "old bones" keep me from it more than it used to. My hubby and I love to travel and also fish. I have used this site for awhile now and I'm embarrassed I haven't shared more of mine. Guess I've been busy making yours! When I have a question, the members here are so friendly, helpful and very quick to answer back! Of course, you've figured by now I love to talk!! I have to say my love for cooking comes from my mom. She is one of those cooks that just gets into the kitchen and starts cooking with no recipes and everything she makes is wonderful! She's about the best "all around cook" I know! I'd like to think I "inherited" some of her cooking intuition :) But getting close to 80 (sorry mom, but you sure don't look it) she cooks circles around me!
