Dick Clark’s Corn Fritters

Dick Clark’s Corn Fritters

By: Dick Clark
  • 4 Servings
  • Prep 10 min
  • Cook 15 min


  • One 15-ounce can creamed corn
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Salt and pepper
  • ½ cup flour
  • Cooking spray
  • Unsalted butter, melted, for serving


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the creamed corn, eggs, frozen corn and sugar; season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle in the flour gradually, whisking constantly to avoid lumps, until just combined.

  2. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Drop tablespoonfuls of the corn mixture into the pan to form small pancakes. Cook until lightly browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Serve with the melted butter.

The most important gift anyone can give a girl is a belief in her own power as an individual, her value without reference to gender, her respect as a person with potential. Emilie Buchwald Amen !

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while and leave footprints in our hearts and we are never the same.

New Day



These are giant puffball mushrooms. They grow in our woods from late summer to early fall. A single puffball can produce nine trillion spores! My granddaughter was thrilled with her find.

Fall is falling . . . .

True Story . . . .

"I just found out I have H1N1. My tibia is fractured. And, we are under a tornado watch. Some fall break."

P E A C E . . . . .

"I want it to be said that the Bush administration was a results-oriented administration, because I believe the results of focusing our attention and energy on teaching children to read and achieving an education system that's responsive to the child and to the parents, as opposed to mired in a system that refuses to change will make America what we want it to be -- a more literate country and a hopefuller country." George W. Bush January 11, 2001 Washington, D.C

The Montana Show

Ted and Martha. My favorite two people. Yes, I know. These are terrible pictures of Ted. It is the best my little camera and I could do. Should I just sit there and not try? What if you looked down seven seats and there was Ted? Anyway, I just watched the Martha Stewart Living show today with Martha visiting Ted in Montana. The best Martha I have ever seen. More info on Martha's blog. ** TT owns approximately two million acres of personal and ranch land. His lands are managed and worked to partner economic viability with ecological sustainability. Turner ranches support many progressive environmental projects including water resource management, reforestation and the reintroduction of native species to the land. They manage over 50,000 head of bison across the various Turner ranches. ** The UN Foundation promotes "a more peaceful, prosperous and just world". The United Nations priority areas include the Environment, Women and Population, Children's Health, Security, Human Rights and Peace. The United Nations Foundation, Inc. (the "UN Foundation") was created in 1998 in response to Ted Turner's historic gift of $1 billion in support of United Nations causes. Wow.


Buddy Turns Free


I can't boil water . . .

We went to the Incredible Food Show Saturday. And, the incredible Bobby Flay was there. He was signing his cookbooks. I don't know what I will do with mine but it's pretty. There were around 100 Kentucky Proud growers and producers including a beautiful representation from the local farmers market. And, lots of vegetables, cheese, bread, sauce, salsa, relish, garlic, honey, wine, tea, jam cake, fondue, yum and yummier. . . . . . . . a couple of local gals in line for a sample of home brew more Bobby . . .

National color of Ireland

Sitting out on the deck today I realize that fall is just around the corner. I have had these hostas in a pot for years and they come back and look great every year. The ferns are in a sheltered part of the ground. But in a few weeks they will be turning brown and going to sleep.

Something I read: Nature of Green - Green is a restful color with some of the same calming attributes of blue. Like blue, time moves faster in a green room.

I have always loved the work of Dale Chihuly, an American artist from Washington. A student of interior design and architecture in the early 1960s, by 1965 he had become captivated by the process of glassblowing. He enrolled in the University of Wisconsin's hot glass program and now he shows all over the world. I first saw glimpses of him in Arizona and recently shot these sculptures at the Naples Museum of Art in Florida. . . just before they took my camera away from me ... damn it See the Chihuly exhibit now at Cheekwood in Nashville

What are the two most important things people should do to keep themselves young?

Walk. You should be able to walk a quarter mile in five minutes. Second most important is building a community -- avoiding isolation. Because if your heart doesn't have a reason to keep beating, it won't.

Before buying a camera that includes a digital zoom, be sure you know what its optical zoom capabilities are. Since a digital zoom is only a cropping tool, the optical zoom is the only truly useful zoom feature. (Jul 2, 2009)
