Whitney's Creamed Corn & Cornbread

I have never eaten creamed corn, so I really didn't know what to expect. It had an interesting flavor and I really liked it. I halved the recipe, didn't have rosemary, but did get some tumeric. I doubt I'll make it very often since we SO enjoy eating the frozen corn (from Costco) with just plain old butter, salt & pepper. But all in all, I was glad I tried it and will keep it on hand just in case someone needs a creamed corn recipe or I want to refer back to it.

I cooked the cornbread in a 8x8 glass baking dish and used butter instead of oil and it cooked just fine. I also doubled the sugar, but really I wish I would have quadrupled it. I like my cornbread a lot sweeter (so I'm eating it topped with honey). I have also never tried to make it from scratch before (I have box mixes to thank for that), and overall it was a pretty good experience. Nothing like cornbread in 115 degree weather in Mesa, AZ, right?! :)

I can't believe you'd never had creamed corn! Not even the canned stuff??

This may have been my first experience with fresh creamed corn. Didn't taste anything like the canned stuff, and thank goodness for that!
