My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and ktmadeit.com was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Fried Okra


{ Prep Time: 10 mins / Cook Time: 8-12 mins per batch / Difficulty: Easy / Yields: 4 servings }
Ingredients:
2 cups fresh okra
1 large egg
4-6 dashes tabasco sauce (optional)
1/2 tsp salt & pepper
1 cup cornmeal
1 Tbsp whole wheat flour
vegetable oil, for frying

Directions:
1. Wash & drain okra. Cut off both ends, then cut okra into 1/2" slices.
2. In a small bowl, combine cornmeal, flour and salt and pepper.
3. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and hot sauce. Add okra and toss to coat. Pour cornmeal mixture over the okra and coat completely.
4. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over high heat (about an 8 on a scale of 1-10). Cook okra in small batches (so that oil remains hot), about 4-6 mins on each side. Cook until browned on both sides. Drain on a plate covered with paper towels.

Recipe adapted from several fried okra recipes found online
