As summer winds down, it’s important to make each sun-kissed day matter. Soon we’ll be saying goodbye to longer days and a more carefree schedule, as well as all that amazing summer produce. I like to kind of overdose on all my favorites, so that I don’t miss them as much when they’re finally gone. Fresh local corn is one of those foods I can never get enough of. Right now it’s absolutely perfect — sweet, juicy and great right off the cob or used in recipes like this easy frittata. I like the added flavor of grilled corn, but you can also use boiled or steamed corn.
