Buttermilk Pancakes

Update: The easy-print version of this recipe can be found here! “I feel thrifty, oh so thrifty. I feel thrifty and nifty and bright. And I pity any Mom who isn’t me tonight.” Alright, so Stephen Sondheim I’m not, but this is what I was singing to myself this morning while simultaneously whipping up pancakes [Read On]

Roasted Beet Salad with Herbed Goat Cheese

It is official.  I am addicted to food blogger events.  When I saw that Holler from Tinned Tomatoes was hosting her No Croutons Required event for July and that the category was vegetarian soups and/or salads showcasing herbs I was thrilled.  I lovey love love fresh herbs.  Since I have parsley and chives growing in abundance [Read On]

Cornbread Salad for the Weekly Cookbook Challenge – Part 3

As I mentioned earlier, I also made a half recipe of the vegetarian version of the salad this morning. If anything, it received an even warmer reception from my (expected and unexpected) audience.

Cornbread Salad for the Weekly Cookbook Challenge – Part 2

Okay, so I should read recipes more carefully—in looking at the recipe for the original cornbread salad recipe, I see the instructions ‘coarsely crumble the cornbread into a good big bowl and let it dry for a few hours.’ So my careful slicing and cutting into cubes was definitely wasted effort. I salvaged it this [Read On]
