Well, remember those blueberry cornmeal muffins from my earlier post last week? The last time I made those, I made a LOT. More than our guests could decently eat in the time they were with us, and more than we could handle all on our lonesome. My freezer would not allow any more foodstuffs to be stored, [Read On]
In an earlier post this summer, I raved about The Cornbread Gospels by Crescent Dragonwagon (that name always makes me smile) and the two versions of cornbread salad we had tried out, both receiving enthusiastic reviews. Well, since then, it’s been hard for me to NOT bake and cook without cornmeal. Cornmeal breads, muffins, [Read On]
Mangoes…I love them…just have a hard time finding a good one at times. The first time I ate a mango, it was somewhat underripe, and actually cutting the mango up was a little bit frustrating, due to the monster pit waiting inside that lovely yellow flesh. But even under-ripe, the fruit was delicious, and [Read On]
It was pointed out to us that we should have a badge for our Second Tuesdays Déjà Food event. (I’m looking at you White on Rice Couple!) So, here it is. Eherm, I think it is anyway. Not so sure what a badge is, but this looks badgy to me.

They let us get creative with ingredients, minimize food waste, save money, try new flavor combinations without risk (You got one meal out of this already, right? Take a chance!), and save time. And they do the laundry. (No, wait, that’s [Read On]

Trying to paste [Read On]
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. My husband and I work for a small church-related camp, and on Sunday, our next camper groups come in to begin their [Read On]
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]
