Staying on Budget

For people who love money.

Corn Bake

This corn bake is light, rich and very satisfying. It is a perfect take along to a large gathering or served on the side of a Sunday meal.

This is a recipe that I LOVE at Thanksgiving but try to use during the year because I enjoy it so much. It is great for a crowed but also for a week that I cook multiple meats. I found this recipe initially in my taste of home cookbook and it can also be found on-line
