Bundt cake pan and corn?

Bundt cake pan and corn?

I love this time of year when all of the produce is coming in and there are so many choices of fresh food to eat. My sweet sister brought me a mess (that is southern terminology for a lot) of corn yesterday. Well the thing about corn is, once you pick it, you have to be ready to do something with it, for me that meant cutting it off the cob to put away for the cold winter months. However, cutting is not my strong  point to begin with and on top of that I am dealing with a broken hand, so innovation was key to holding the corn still and getting it off the cob without another emergency room visit. So here is the trick I learned from a friend today, shuck your corn, then take the hard end of the cob and stick it in the hole of a bundt pan (you know, like a bundt cake, see photos) to hold it steady, with a sharp knife, cut the corn off the cob and it conveniently falls into the cake pan!

Second brilliant fresh produce moment came from one of my favorite blogs, 5dollardinners, and it was a recipe for Easy Peach Cobbler, click on the link following for recipe http://www.5dollardinners.com/2009/07/easy-peach-cobbler-guest-post.html

I had some peaches that needed to be used so this seemed like a great plan, but my hubby is not a peach fan, so I coupled them with strawberries and blueberries from the fridge, awesome! Look at the beautiful colors, before cooking! Yum.
