So Summer Easy

The very easiest way to make corn on the cob. 

I love corn on the cob. In the summer, I could make meals out of the sweet, golden deliciousness. So, of course, being the corner-cutter that I am, I have an easy way to cook it. 

You need a lidded pot, water, and ears of corn.

Add about an inch and a half of water in the bottom of the pot and bring to a boil. 
Add husked corn. 
Cover with the lid and cook for 15 minutes. 

Corn is done and ready to eat!

Easy Campfire Baked Potatoes

With the popularity of backyard fire pits, we don't have to wait for a camping trip for this campfire treat!

You will need potatoes, fire, and aluminum foil 

Build a fire. Once there is a good bed of coals, wrap a washed potato in foil and tuck into the coals. 

Allow to cook 30-60 minutes. I suggest checking them at the 30 minute mark. As soon as they feel pliable, they're done. 

Unwrap, add some favorite toppings, and enjoy!

Need a New Twist on the Summer S'more? 

Replace the usual Hershey bar with a Reese's Cup. Delicious...or so my kids say. I am one of the few who is not a fan of S'mores. I will take a Reese's Cup...chilled please. Nothing more delicious on a hot summer day than some cold chocolate. 

Anything else easy that I need to be doing this summer? Leave me tips in the comments- I'll happily steal borrow them. 


  1. Cut top and tail off corn cob, microwave for 6 mins, husk and silk comes off and corn is done. I don't like s'mores either.

    1. That is even easier, and a perfect idea for when I just want to make myself an ear! Right now, I cook 24 ears at a time, 4 per person in my family, because like I said- we make corn on the cob a meal.

  2. I was gonna say the same thing Jo said, only I microwave 4 minutes per ear. Works well for us, with only two people eating. Might be more problematic with a large family. For a crowd, like for a big outdoor gathering, you can put the ears of corn into a clean cooler, and then pour boiling water on them. Close the cooler, and they'll be ready to eat in no time.

    1. I am going to remember that for when I only want to make a few ears. That is genius! I also never thought to cook in a cooler. I'll have to email you and find out if you clean the ears first or if you pour the boiling water over the husk and all.

  3. Mmmm... I'm doing that Reese Cup thing. I'd do it right now if I had some in the house!

    1. My niece started it with my kids. Now, that's their regular S'More flavor.


Thanks for stopping by the House!
