Thankful Thursday: Mexican Street Corn-Frugal Hausfrau

Welcome to another weekly edition of Thankful Thursday, where I highlight one of my phenomenal followers!

This week, I have for you Mollie from the blog FRUGAL HAUSFRAU, and her recipe for Mexican Street Corn (YUM! 😍).

In her blogs, Mollie give recipes and tips on cooking on a budget. She says she’s always been frugal. She loves nutrition and wholesome foods. Mollie is interested in food trends, but likes good old fashioned styes as well. Here’s a bit of Mollie, in her own words:

“I’m a little Grandma, and a touch of Cook’s Illustrated with a dash of Bon Appetit thrown in, always with an eye toward the practical application of cooking and tending a family; after all I’ve been doing it since I was tall enough to pull up chair to stand at the counter, sink and stove – almost 50 years! This is what I’d like to pass down to my own daughter and son…”

The recipe I’m highlighting today is Mollie’s recipe for Mexican Street Corn. I’ve actually never had Mexican Street Corn, but I did see a youtube video recently. Here, Emmy from Emmy Made in Japan makes ELOTE’S  (Mexican Street Corn). Mollie’s recipe is very similar, with just a few differences. I prefer Mollie’s recipe. Emmy doesn’t use sour cream, where Mollie does. I love the idea of mixing mayo and sour cream, instead of just straight mayo. Have a look:

Mollie’s page is filled with wonderful recipes.

Here are just a few:

Pineapple Mango Salsa


Upside Down Carmel Apple French Toast


Eggs Florentine


Cowboy Caviar


This is just a small sampling of what you’ll find on Mollie’s blog. It’s jam packed with wonderful recipes. Thank you so much Mollie, for following my blog over the past 8 months. I appreciate your support. Thanks for what you do and for giving us all so many wonderful and tasty recipes. God Bless!

Let us stop for a moment to pray and meditate.

Welcome to The Purple Almond Wellness! I’m Tamara Hoerner, MHNE, RNCP, wellness educator and founder of Purple Almond Wellness. I work with middle-age individuals to help support brain health and develop whole body wellness, in order to improve the quality of their mid-life years. Heart and Alzheimer’s diseases run in my family and I struggled with weight loss, so I strive to help others with similar conditions. Using only nutrition, I rid my body of seasonal allergies, Psoriatic Arthritis and migraines, as well as cured my insomnia. I know what it takes to use food as medicine, especially in middle age. As a wellness educator and Summa Cum Laude graduate of Hawthorn University, I develop personalized nutrition plans and wellness education sessions, to help clients. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
