Corn Fritters


Sometimes I just need a taste of summer, and corn is the quintessential summer veggie. Sure I could have made a corn side dish, but why not make it the star of the show?  This dish is perfect for a light dinner or as an easy appetizer perfect for company.  Make them in advance then just reheat before serving.
