    *1 large egg
    *1/2 cup beer
    *1/2 cup diced onion
    *1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
    *1 jalapeņo pepper, chopped
    *Vegetable oil

    Combine cornmeal mix, flour, and sugar in a bowl and make a "well" in the mixture.

    In a separate bowl mix the egg, beer, onion, green pepper, and jalapeno - stirring well.

    Add the wet to the dry ingredients and stir only till moistened.

    Heat 3" of oil in a dutch oven or heavy saucepan to 375 degrees (or until a drop of water "spits back," as Mom used to say).

    Drop batter by rounded tablespoons, and fry your batches 2 minutes per side (or till golden brown).

    Drain on paper towels and serve immediately.
    Thanks. I'd almost rather eat the hushpuppies than the fish that usually they are served with.

    I started following @FifteenSpatulas on Twitter...she's just recently started a cooking blog. She posted a potato salad recipe last week that looks really good...no mayo on this one, but it looks like it would be good for summer. See Salsa Verde Dressed Red Potato Salad |.

    I just had some pork chops on the grill and went to Whole Foods for some side dishes. One was Jamaican roasted vegetables (peppers, red onions, zucchini, etc.) and the other was a recipe the chef just made up. I've never had fiddlehead ferns before but man were they good! Sauteed with asparagus, orange peppers and some other various veggies I hope they make it more often.

    I love fiddleheads, Unk! They are in season for such a short time, but I love them steamed with garlic. Yum.

    I've never had fiddleheads, but have seen them on cooking shows. I want to get them next time I see them at the farmers' market.

    I never heard of crash potatoes, so I googled them. Basically, boil them, cut a cross on top, with a potatoe masher, smash them, drizzle with olive oil, salt pepper and bake for 20 min's or so? Are these the same crash potatoes that everyone is referring to?
