cooking in season
I love Ina Garten. If I could invite three famous people to dinner, she would be one of them and I’d ask her to cook the meal. Her food is so easy and seems to always be a success. I made her simple Sauteed Corn as a side dish this week and it was outstanding. My husband and my boys are die hard corn ON THE COB guys- so to cut the corn OFF the cob was met with some resistance by my 9 year old. Well, it was awesome and the last words my husband said to me before we went to sleep were “That really was the best side dish you have ever made.” Too funny.
In my relationship with Ina, I do everything she says except I always decrease the amount of butter she recommends. For this recipe I used only 5 cobs of corn and only 1 1/2 T. of butter. Based on the fact we wished there was more corn, I would make more cobs next time! Also, here is the easy way I removed the corn from the cob without a huge mess.
