Two Seasonal Sides

This is a difficult post because both of these dishes out of the recent Cooking Light got two very different reviews in our household.

Thyme Corn Bread was liked by my husband but I didn't care for it. It was too thymey tasting and a bit dry because they seriously cut back on the amount of oil to keep it light. I used some leftover Iowa farmers market corn in it.

On the same page was another recipe I tried out tonight called, Cherry Tomato and Herb Salad. I added a half of a chopped fresh mozzarella ball to it and had all the fresh herbs growing in that strawberry pot I posted earlier. I really liked this one and the combination of the herbs but my husband gave it a thumbs down for the same reason ... too herby.
