For the tummy
Corn Cakes with honey are a very special treat since they are shallow fried and don't exactly fit the criteria for a healthy meal.  But they are so tasty that they are worth every drop of grease left clinging to your fingers.  The best part is that this is a very kid friendly recipe.  Lots of stirring and mixing to be done for the little helpers that are happiest when helping Momma in the kitchen.  This is always a sure fire way to lighten a less than happy mood in Emme.  That is, until it is time to stop stirring.  Enjoy!

Corn Cakes
1 cup unbleached flour
1/3 c cornmeal finely ground
1 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c milk
1 egg
1 Tbs vinegar
1 Tbsp oil
1 c frozen corn
enough oil to coat the pan

Mix together the dry ingredients.  In a measuring cup add milk, egg and vinegar and beat.  Add oil and incorporate into dry mix.  Add corn and drop a heaping tsp into oil.  Cook until the center is set and serve hot with a side of local honey.

Update: I cooked the second batch like a pancake and they were still very good with much less oil.  I also added in some diced green onion.  Feeble attempt to make them healthier.
