The girls came over this morning for a brunch. I love having people over, and I love eating great food. I would do it way more often if only I didn’t have to clean me house first. I gotta figure that part out….
We ate entirely too much and had a great time.

I love Tastefully Simple’s Italian Garlic Bread Seasoning. It makes wonderful garlic toast. However, I would caution you about eating it if you are friends with vampires or if you are the only person in your group eating it. It is gah-lick-e.
That being said, it was worth a try to have some in compound butter form on corn. Luckily, on the day I tried it on fresh corn, I was alone except for my kids, and no vampires (friends or otherwise) were within sight.
I liked it a lot. The garlic/spicy flavor of the butter complemented the corn well. I can see using this in dishes with corn off the cob in the future. Yum.

All I can say?
I like this butter better (try saying that five times fast!) than the Old Bay. I just quick boiled the corn for about four minutes in rapidly boiling water, and then I slathered it with the butter. Wow.
Next time I mix this butter, I think it needs salt.
Also, I think I will try shucking the corn, wrapping it with the cilantro/lime butter and salt in aluminum foil, and grilling it.
My corn experiment? So far, so good.
Corn #1-Old Bay Butter
The first butter I tried was the butter mixed with Old Bay seasoning. We use Old Bay in our shrimp boils and to season the corn and potatoes in the shrimp/seafood boils. Delish.
With just sweet corn from the garden, it was good as well. I think next time the ratio of butter to seasoning should be greater-maybe three tablespoons of butter to one of OB.
It looked terrible-like I had rolled it in red dirt. However, it tasted good. With a few adjustments, this will be even more worthy to accompany sweet corn.
