*The Budget Diet's easy was to cook corn - place the entire ear of corn (yes, the husk too!) in the microwave. Cook on high 2 minutes for 1 ear, 3 minutes for 2 ears. Let cool until it's easy to handle, and the husk with come right off. Of course, microwave cooking times do vary, so please make a note of how long corn takes in your microwave.
