Corn Is One Of My Favorite Illinois Foods
Illinois is home to a lot of different tasty foods, but corn is one of my favorites. It's such a great summer dish. The best way is still on the cob.
Many years ago, my old roommate and I even tried hosting our very own corn boil. Unfortunately, it didn't go over very well. We made way too much and failed to have other food choices but the corn was delicious.
