Creamed Summer Corn (and a new addition!)

Hi everyone! As you probably guessed, I’ve been a bit busy with our new addition. Olivia Camero Ainslie made her debut on Saturday, June 18th at 10:29 PM. She was 6 lbs 5 oz., 19 inches long and cute as a button! Here she is at 2 weeks old (cue the awwwww). Thank you all for your well-wishes!

Although I’ve miraculously been finding the time to cook, our meals have been nothing to blog about. Mostly sandwiches, stir-frys and my standard pasta with sausage and kale. But I finally found time to make something easy and still delicious enough to share. Summer means corn and I was looking for a side dish that was luscious, but not too heavy. (I’ve got some Ben & Jerry’s baby weight to shed!)

Creamed Summer Corn

This creamed corn is much lighter than the traditional version, and oh my was it good! The corn was sweet and summery and a little creamy. Cherry tomatoes, lime zest and fresh basil add just the right amount of brightness. It was a most perfect summer side dish and made our otherwise boring lunch (sandwich, of course) something special.

Now that things have settled into more of a pattern, I’m looking forward to blogging at least once a week. Wish me luck!
