 Colossal Cornburger
It's been such a long time since I added this recipe to my file that I don't even remember where it came from! Cooking's something I thoroughly enjoy—and, when I'm finished, my husband always wonders which truck ran through our kitchen! Somehow, I manage to cover every bit of counter space. We have two children, 8 and 6. In addition to cooking. I'm an avid sewer.
