Recipe - Two Corn Casserole

Here is a little comfort food, especially for those of us in/from the Midwest.  Usually you can find this, or a variation, around thanksgiving and its always so good!  If i'm feeling a little homesick, I'll whip up a batch. Its one of those dishes where you should always keep the ingredients in your pantry  because its super easy to make!  So here it is, the recipe for Two Corn Casserole!
Two Corn Casserole1/2 Cup Butter (8 T)
1/4 Cup Onion-Chopped
3/4 Cup Serrano Pepper-Chopped
1 Can (16oz) Cream Style Corn
1 Can (16oz) Whole Kernel Corn
3 Eggs-Beaten
1 Box Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
Cheddar Cheese-Grated (optional)
Heat Oven to 350 Degrees, Grease 9x12 pan with butter. In small skillet melt remainder of butter and sweat onions and pepper until translucent (alt you can fry until crisp). Let cool. In a large bowl combine eggs, the two cans of corn, and muffin mix. Mix. Then pour in cooled onion/pepper mixture. Mix. Pour into 9x12 pan and bake for 1 hr. 10 min prior top with cheddar cheese if desired, or similar cheese. Let stand for 5 min before serving.
Some alterations you can make are to add various levels of "heat" by using different peppers, and then either not sweating/frying them and putting them raw in the mix to bake.  Also you can add in a two strips of bacon-chopped, fry it up first and use the fat to sweat/fry the onion and pepper, then just cut out a T of butter or two.  Jack or Pepper Jack cheese works well too.  If you let it cool in the fridge you can cut it into blocks for portion control and it freezes nicely, double wrapped of course.

It is thought of more of a side dish but I certainly can/will eat it as the main, but I've also been known to use the left overs as an companion to my chili.

Hope you enjoyed this post and thanks for stopping by!

2am Chili - How To Make Chili "Like A Boss"

Over on the reddit user tylercap posted his recipe for Chili, "Like A Boss" that he likes to make at 2am between sessions of Black Ops.  However unlike the traditional listing of ingredients in a 3x5 index card format or video of the process tylercap decided to post pics along with some stick figures showing the process.  Also if you're unfamiliar with the meme "Like a Boss" check out the bottom of the post for the youtube clip from Andy Samberg of SNL and thelonlyisland.

I had to give the boiling crab only one star this time out because frankly they missed the mark on a number of the areas I judge a establishment upon.  Find out more on why I don't recommend going to The Boiling Crab...

POPUP SHOP - Modo Mochi Donut @ Mitsuwa Marketplace in San Jose

$20 for a dozen!!! (other food, and tax/tip not included)
People have lost their damn minds once again in the "craze" of these Hawaiian Mochi Donuts!  We arrived after lunch at the Mitsuwa Marketplace in San Jose off Saratoga Ave.  The line was out the door! My friends got in line, I went in to scope out how long it would be.   I passed the automatic doors and saw the line twisted to and fro, back and forth, amongst various food stands and displays.  I inquired the length of time people were waiting, 2-3 hrs was the wait time.  
OMG! No frick'n way!!!  
No pastry was worth that wait!Luckily, my friend came in to see the line size and saw their sister in law and was able to snag a few to share with us! Thanks CHAN!  The max you could get for one person was a dozen for $20.   
Now don't get me wrong, the donuts were very tasty and had that slight chewiness of fresh pastries combined with mochi, but they weren't mind blowing crazy good.  The best donut was the one l…
