This Skinny Mexican Grilled Corn is the perfect Summer side dish for BBQs! So easy and flavorful! Healthy, easy, pretty, and SO YUMMY!
I’ve been a bit MIA on the recipes lately! There has been SO much going on at The Cookie Rookie! Mom started her site, Simply Sated, and its doing awesome! I’m so excited for her. If you haven’t checked it out, please stop by her blog and give her some love! She has inspired every recipe on this page, so if you like my recipes, you will LOVE hers. We are going to do an official launch in a couple weeks (with a big givewaway!)…stay tuned :)
The Cookie Rookie also got a site redesign!! I would call it more of a makeUNDER than a makeover. I wanted simple simple simple. I’m so excited about how it turned out, and so grateful to Julie at Blogger Boutique for turning my design ideas into reality! If you’re looking to redo your site, Julie is awesome. So was also soooo quick. I couldn’t believe how fast she worked. The site has a new look, new logo, and even a recipe index (FINALLY). THANK YOU JULIE!
But enough about all that. Let’s get cookin’!
We had our families over for Memorial Day and used our deck/grill for the first time!! We built our house last June, but had to wait to build a deck. (I guess money doesn’t grow on trees after all) It was finally completed a couple months ago, and after begging Pat like a spoiled child, he finally agreed that my dream outdoor furniture was much needed! Yay! It was so fun to finally put it all to good use. First up…Skinny Mexican Grilled Corn. Easy and delish. I’ve seen a lot of variations of this fun recipe on pinterest. I used some ideas from several recipes, and lightened them up by using Greek Yogurt instead of Mayonnaise. It tastes fresh, delicious, and perfect for summer. One taste and Pat realized I was right about the deck furniture. Great food always helps me change his mind. One day he will just trust me that I’m always right.
