Cooler Corn

Cooler Corn by Glenn

Large gatherings of people who like corn on the cob requires a couple of lobster pots or a wash tub and a lot of boiling water and patience. Not anymore. Thanks to tailgating technology there is a simple way to make dozens of ears of corn for the hungry revelers.

Broccoli Cole Slaw with Craisins

Broccoli Cole Slaw with Craisins by Denise Sherin

This is one of those things that you throw together because it's what you have on hand. I used bottled slaw dressing because I was in a hurry, I think a creamy caeser dressing would be nice too. It turned out that we really liked it as a different type of slaw. My son can't get enough of it, so we will be making it again.
