Iowans, spice up your sweet corn with these recipes

There is an old saying that the two things you should never discuss in general are politics and religion.

To this list, I would like to add another: 1980s pop music.

Let me warn you. If you’re not a fan of 80s pop, the next few lines in this column may be confusing. In other words, if the phrase “Knee deep in the hoopla” doesn’t ring a bell, you might just want to save some time and get to the recipes now.

As a proud member of Generation X, the 80s were my decade. From 1980 to 1989, I went from junior high (i.e. “Gen X-speak for “college”) to high school and then to college. I also had a perm, wore bright shirts (a la “Miami Vice”) and danced with Madonna and Duran Duran.
