Roasted Corn on the Cob

This weekend I had a wonderful date with my friend Jenn. We went to California Pizza Kitchen for lunch and then walked around the outdoor mall and browsed some of my favorite stores: Pottery Barn, Anthropologie, Crate & Barrel. As soon as we walked into Crate & Barrel we got so excited about all of their bright summery colors! I walked out with just a couple of items, but I'm very excited about them:

Just the other day I realized I didn't have any corn picks, and therefore I hadn't made much corn on the cob. When I saw these I knew it was a sign I had to have them! While I was checking out, the lady at the register told me about some amazing seasoning to go on corn. Apparently everyone has been raving about how good it is. So of course I had to get that too :)

I wish we had a grill, but since we don't I tried out roasting the cobs in the oven. I preheated the oven to 350, and then shucked the corn. (For some reason I always feel like a prairie girl when I do this. Is that weird?) I placed the cobs on some foil and sprinkled seasoning along with a just little olive oil drizzled over top.

I wrapped them up tightly, placed them directly on the oven rack, and roasted them for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

The result was pure, steaming deliciousness.

The seasoning was amazing and it had so much flavor I didn't feel the need to slather butter all over it. Served with some leftover cheeseburger pie, we had ourselves a wonderful and easy Sunday night dinner!

I'm so excited to have corn on the cob all summer! And hopefully when we move we will be able to grill it :)


  1. thank you for sharing this! i love corn on the cob but having a grill is a distant dream...maybe five years from now? and don't feel weird about feeling like a prairie girl, i totally feel that. now all we have to do is learn how to churn butter to put on the corn ;)

  2. thanks for the sweet comment on my post the other day! it is appreciated! and I got the green shirt and belt from old navy. the shirt was only $2! I got in about a month ago but saw it still at old navy last weekend (this time it wasn't $2 but was still on clearance). This post makes me SOOOO wanting it to be summer!
