Parmesan Lime Corn

This Parmesan Lime Corn Recipe came from our very first Traveling Apron Recipe Swap. Submitted by April Ockerman in Texas, it has become one of my go-to recipes during the summer months.

It’s the perfect side dish for a backyard BBQ and the combination of sweet corn and tangy lime and chili powder is a winner.

When I made the decision to dust the cobwebs off this website, it was only fitting that I make a better effort to organize, categorize and feature the recipes from the Traveling Apron Recipe Swap.

I’m currently working my way through getting all the recipes photographed or re-photographed in some cases (my oh my how my photography has evolved) and onto the website…..Parmesan Lime Corn style.

There’s only a hand full of recipes on there now, but rest assured that I’m diligently working on getting at least a new one up every week. It’s my new year’s resolution!

And I know that it’s June. But they always say the middle of the year is the perfect time to re-evaluate your priorities and never too late to start anew.
