Ever feel like there are certain recipes that just don’t get enough love and attention? Could be one of yours, or it could be a recipe from one of your favorite bloggers or cookbook author’s.

Either way, this is one of those recipes for me.

It sat happily under the radar basking in it’s simplicity when it should have be shouting from the rooftopsΒ about how flavorful and fun it really is. You know, if a soup could talk.

This is a go-to recipe on those nights when my taste buds need a little invigorating but my mind says no more work. It’s a go to recipe in the summertime when fresh corn is at it’s peak. It’s even a go-to in those cold winter months when we could use a little slurp of sunshine.

It is soup-perb with frozen corn. It is overwhelmingly out-of-this-world outstanding with fresh corn on the cob.

(How many more adjectives do I have to throw into this post before I convince you to try it?)
