Tried and True Tender Cornbread

Remember that slow cooked sweet potato chili? Goodness, I hope so. Well, bake this yellow number to go alongside it. Salty winking at sweet. Nooked, crannied, and unabashedly crumbly.   She’s buttery all on her own, but trust me, even lovelier glazed with honey. Tried and True Tender Cornbread 1 cup cornmeal 1 cup all-purpose flour…

Cranberry Corn Muffiins with Sweet Milk Drizzle

Someone get a pen and paper. Scratch that. Get a good solid slab of stone, find a chisel, and carve away: Cornbread and sweetened condensed milk are in love. Plain and simple.

Chicken Pot Pie with Cornbread Crust

Sometimes I wonder if Whole Foods wouldn’t be kinder to shoppers if they erected an electric fence of sorts around some areas of the store. Not a high intensity zap, but just a little bzzz to keep me away from, say, the wall of energy bars, the fine quality chocolate, and the greek yogurt. Actually,…
