Continuing along in the alphabet I can hardly believe we are at the Letter L already! It seems as though I had just begun this series with my gramma’s recipe for All-Bran Muffins. But here we are almost halfway through (and getting ever closer to some very difficult letters).
For the Letter L, I am returning to one of my favorite recipe spots, The Loveless Cafe and one of their recipes that I love to make for the holidays. (I’m not sure why I save it for the holidays but it feels special that way.)
I’ll start off today’s post with a video from the Loveless that shows how to make this delicious recipe (in fact, it was after watching this video that I decided to add creamed corn to our Thanksgiving dinner menu (my mother-in-law loved it!)
Besides having videos to demonstrate several of their recipes, the Loveless has a terrific recipe section on their website. This is fantastic for those of us who lived thousands of miles away and don’t get to enjoy their amazing meals often enough for our liking.
Of course, if you are planning a summer road trip or a visit to Nashville, The Loveless Cafe I strongly recommend you add a stop at the Loveless to your list. Here’s my post about our visits, The Loveless Cafe, Our Favorite Lunch Spot in Nashville.
So back to my theme and the recipe for Creamed Corn from the Loveless Cafe:
