I worked my last day in Cleveland as a phlebotomist. I am now saying goodbye to Cleveland and Ohio. After 13 years I am finally leaving.


As I was editing the old posts for SEO, I realized for 5 years I said I want to leave Cleveland. I want to move to Florida. Well, I am finally. I took my own advice about change is good and I am doing a change.


Right now, I am moving back first to Pittsburgh. Looking for a phlebotomy job in Orlando. Then I will be moving to Florida finally!


Honestly, I was slowly dying in Ohio from depression. It was full of very bad memories of the abuse of my ex-husband. I moved there for him and then I got stuck there from fear. I decided I need to be happy, it is time I start doing something to make me happy.

Grilled Corn On The Cob

So now back to this grilled corn on the cob. My family loves corn, especially corn on the cob. For years we would eat it as boiled corn on the cob.


Tips for boiling corn on the cob:

  • Corn should quickly and not left to sit in the boiling water very long. Otherwise, that will overcook the corn and cause it to be dry.
  • Bring your water to a boil first, then add the corn. Boiling corn this way keeps the corn sweetness, so you do not have to add sugar to water.
  • For crisp corn: boil the corn on the cob for 1-2 minutes.
  • For Softer corn kernels: boil the corn for 3-5 minutes.



French Onion Grilled Corn On The Cob


Grilled Corn On The Cob In Foil

It wasn’t until a church fair that I tasted grilled corn on the cob. The grilled the corn in the corn husks. That made me nervous to grill corn that way.


What if the corn husks catch fire? How to grill corn on the cob without husks? The answer is simple, grill the corn in foil.



Fire Roasted Corn On The Cob

For this French onion grilled corn, I ended up doing both grilled corn on the cob in foil and a quick-fire roasted corn on the cob. The fire roasting really gives this grilled corn on the cob seasoning a wonderful taste.



Seasoned Butter For Corn On The Cob

How to get that French onion taste for grilled corn? I was introduced to Chef Shamy seasoned butter when I did cookout week. I used the French Onion butter in the French Onion Grilled Baked Potatoes and I am now obsessed with flavored butter.


Using Mexican grilled corn as inspiration, I used this seasoned butter for corn on the cob. Wrapped the corn in foil and gave it that grilled corn seasoning. Finally, fire roasting the corn for a minute for one amazing grilled corn recipe!
