oven roasted corn

Okay so let me start by disclosing that technically, this isn't roasted corn. It's moister, It's simpler, Your oven doesn't have to get as hot, and for goodness sakes there is no standing over, beside, or even remotely near an open fire in the middle of summer. So technically, this isn't roasted corn - because it's a little bit better. But I chose the name "roasted" because it sounded as ... Continue Reading

moore's marinade plate

Today's recipe is a classic in my part of the woods.
