Cream Skillet Corn






My First Video! Can ya tell.... O-My, this was too fun! I've entered the RWOP Real Women of Philadelphia Contest with my girl Paula Deen. If you love to create your own recipes, get on over there and submit a video and recipe!
This is an 8 week casting contest with a different category each week. I'm submitting videos of me cooking a fantastic PHILLY dish from one of four categories: Side Dish, Appetizer, Entrée, and Dessert.

This is going to be so much fun! I've already made so many friends in the community. I've grabbed my son to be my camera man and he has committed to going until I'm picked or till the end of the casting. Keep your fingers crossed.

Here's how it works! Each week is a brand new start! Each week they'll select two finalists, so at the end of eight weeks they'll have 16 finalists – 4 Side Dish Finalists, 4 Appetizer Finalists, 4 EntrĂ©e Finalists, and 4 Dessert Finalists. All 16 finalists will receive a trip to Savannah, Georgia where they'll cook their winning dish in front of a live audience, and Paula Deen and some wonderful judges. They'll be doing the judging and selecting one winner from each category to pick their four “Real Women of Philadelphia.” Can you imagine? AND it just gets better.. Yes, there's more!

Come on over yawl!

I decided to enter this recipe and it was PHABULOUS!
My description: Reminiscent of my grandmothers fresh creamed corn. I created this recipe using cream cheese which makes it simple, This skillet corn keeps the kernals whole and the cream cheese adds another layer of flavor to that I remember as a child.
