Recipe Of The Week

We love this recipe by Maebell’s Farmers Market Fritters

Hearty cornmeal base with finely chopped yellow squash, thinly sliced okra, green onions spices and of course, cheddar cheese. These have the perfect balance of flavor. A little smokiness from the smoked paprika, a kick from the green onions and a bit of crunch from the okra. It is everything you want in an easy Summer dish!
