The recipes below cover some of my favorite forms of enjoying corn – everything from using fresh corn kernels to cornmeal to polenta!

This Cheesy Pimento Polenta Stuffed Peppers recipe is an easy and delicious summer appetizer that can be made ahead of time and warmed up just before guests arrive.
