Summer Fest 2010: Fresh Corn, Cherry Tomatoes and Basil

72872

One big job of a recipe developer and blogger is to consistently read as many food blogs as I can. I found out about a wonderful summer blog event that started last week from one of my favorites, White On Rice Couple’s blog. They are part of Summer Fest Community which is in it’s 3rd year celebrating the peak harvest season of produce. This idea was created by Margaret Roach and Deb Puchalla. For the next several weeks, talented bloggers are sharing their recipes or growing tips for ingredients and produce. Margaret Roach from A Way to Garden has chosen to feature corn this week. I love this Corn-Tomato and Basil side dish using fresh corn, cherry tomatoes, basil and Parmesan. Feel free to cook your corn on the grill or however you like. I roasted mine in the oven while I was reading some of my favorite food blogs. For more information on Summer Fest, visit http://awaytogarden.com/3d-annual-summer-fest-starts-wednesday

Low-Fat Twice Baked Potatoes with Greek Yogurt

IMG_2073

My youngest son, Zachary, loves twice baked potatoes. I am really bad at making them so I ask my husband, Jon, to make them. He came up with the idea of using Greek yogurt in them instead of sour cream, and everyone loved them even more. My favorite Greek yogurt is Fage 0%. It’s high in protein and low in carbohydrates and fat.
