first 5 recipes I found in email this morning nov 15

Hello.... Um... So much rain that the Satilight feed is out. So, I'm going through old email files and the first 5 recipes I have come across are in this morning's "first 5"
Steamed corn pudding made on the stovetop.
Corn Tomalito
5 tablespoons margarine, softened
1/4 cup masa harina
1/3 cup SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
1/2 cup water
2 cups frozen whole-kernel corn, thawed
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons milk
In a medium bowl, mix together the margarine, masa flour, and
SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener until light and fluffy. In a food
processor or blender, blend one cup of the corn kernels with the water
and cornmeal just until smooth. Stir into the masa mixture. Mix in the
remaining corn, baking powder, salt, and milk until the batter is
smooth. Pour into an 8x8 inch glass baking dish.
Place the baking dish over a large saucepan of simmering water. Cover
the baking dish tightly with aluminum foil, and steam for 50 to 60
minutes, or until firm. Check water occasionally, and refill if
necessary. Stir pudding before serving to give it a consistent
texture. Serve in small scoops.
Makes 8 servings.
