FRESH AND FAST: Any cook has probably done it at some point (we're not talking to you, fancy chef people). Substituted canned corn when a recipe specifically and sternly called for fresh. We're still of the school that that's a-ok, but now that we've seen the OXO Corn Stripper, we've vowed to be a little less loosey-goosey. YEP, IT LOOKS A LITTLE LIKE A COMPUTER MOUSE: No, we can't possibly be the first people to notice that. Find it at Williams-Sonoma for $13. Summer's still got aways to go yet, and the corn, she keeps on comin'. Thank goodness.
