Tomato-Garlic Shrimp Over Creamy Corn
3 ears fresh corn
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 medium tomatoes, coarsely chopped
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup sour cream
3 oz queso fresco (or ricotta) cheese

1/2 teaspoon roasted garlic/herb seasoning
2 tablespoons lemon herb finishing butter

2. Transfer mixture to food processor (or blender); add sour cream and cheese, then blend until smooth.
3. Heat same pan on medium-high 1-2 minutes. Place remaining 2 tablespoons oil in pan, then add shrimp and garlic/herb seasoning; cook and stir 3-4 minutes or just until shrimp turn pink and opaque.

Maple Sticky Bread
1 (12-oz) Bakery baguette or French bread
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
1/2 cup maple syrup, divided
4 oz Deli brie cheese
-- Coat baking sheet with spray.
-- Cut eight (1/2-inch-thick) slices from bread.
1. Preheat large nonstick sauté pan on medium 1-2 minutes. Place butter in pan to melt. Add syrup and bring to a simmer.
2. Add bread, turning immediately to coat both sides; cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until bread is browned (bread will be sticky; syrup will be absorbed). Transfer bread to baking sheet.
3. Cut brie into 8 thin, bite-size slices. Arrange cheese slices on bread; let stand 2-3 minutes to harden. Serve.
-- Complete your meal with fresh salad blend and layer cake for dessert.
-- It's very important to coat the baking sheet with spray to prevent the bread from sticking.
