Hush Puppies

During the summer, food is just tastier when eaten outdoors.  I can remember all the meals I’ve eaten under a bright canopy of warmth; laughter floating through the air along with gentle breezes.  When it comes to outdoor dining, I tend to stick with a couple of staples: fish is one of them.  And with fish comes hush puppies.  Serve with melted butter or a smooth honey butter and enjoy.  To turn the savory side into a dessert, omit the onion and add cinnamon, powdered sugar, or other sweet spices.
