Corn with cumin butter and queso fresco

I've had this corn floating around in my head for a while now and I finally got around to making it.  These were the prefect compliment to our Mexican feast of mole enchiladas, Mexican rice, black beans, and flan.  It's got great flavor and was a nice departure from the standard corn.

Corn with cumin butter and queso fresco

3 cups frozen corn
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
3/4 tsp cumin
3/4 tsp paprika
2 limes
Queso Fresco, for garnish

Cook corn according to package directions.  Once cooked, add butter and spices.  Mix well.  Squeeze lime juice over corn.  Toss again.  Crumble queso fresco over the top of the corn.

With the holidays rapidly approaching I thought I would share some of our family's favorite Children's books. Some of these you probably have heard of and maybe some of them you have not.  Some are ones we have found in our wanderings at the library or are favorites as parents that we wanted to share with our children. They are ones we have enjoyed and that my kids can't get enough of.
