Southern Belle Cooks Wednesday: Food Day

Sorry this is a few days late, but I did part of that on purpose.  Friday was food day at work for our July Birthday.  So I wanted to share with you everything I made.  I made three things Black Bean and Corn Salsa, Edamame Hummus, and a Weight Watchers approved cake.

First Black Bean and Corn Salsa.  This is one of my favorite things! I found this recipe a few years ago when I did a Google search for black bean salsa, I don’t really remember what website I found it from and I have made is so much I can remember the recipe by heart.

1 Can Rotel Tomatoes drained’

1 Can Corn (I think summer crisp corn works the best) drained

1 Can Black Beans rinsed and drained

1/2 to 1 red onion (depending on the size of the onion)

Juice of 1 lime

A little cilantro for taste

Mix everything together and let sit at least over night.


Second Edamame Hummus.  I found this recipe in an e-book I purchased not too long ago titled “50 Delicious Snacks That Won’t Wreck Your Diet”.  I’m not a  big fan of hummus so this was a nice alternative to original hummus.

2 cups Edamame Boiled for at lest three minutes

About 6 Tablespoons Olive Oil

2-3 Cloves Crushed Garlic

A Dash of Salt

A little Paprika for taste

A little Cayenne Pepper for taste

Put everything in a food processor and combine until smoothly blended and has the hummus texture.


Third Weight Watchers Approved Cake.  I found this recipe by doing a Google search and there were many different websites with the same recipe so I’m not real sure which one I got it off of.

1 Cake Mix Any Flavor (I used Devil’s Food)

12 oz. Diet Soda Any Flavor (I used Diet Cherry)

Mix cake mix and soda together and bake like directions say.  I put cool whip out with my cake but it was just as good with nothing at all.
