Recipe

For years I thought creamed corn was about the first thing I could think of. I couldn't understand why anyone would prefer creamed corn to regular corn. However I recently learned that the reason I has such ill feelings about creamed corn was that I had only tried the canned version. The real thing? Wow! Mind blown, and then I saw how many calories it had. Eek! There was so much butter and cream that if was hard to even consider it a vegetable. So I set out to make a healthier version and came across a delicious recipe with garlic and spinach from Rachel Ray. Adjusting that by using nonfat evaporated milk instead of cream and using a bit less version, this version is sure to please. It's best with fresh corn but canned or frozen will work as well.
