Grandma's Savory Cornbread

18 Jan Grandma’s Savory Cornbread

There are without doubt or argument to the fact, two die-hard schools of cornbread. Two sides of the fence that will never reconcile in their disgust when they take a bite of the other's prize-winning heart-pouring passed-down-for-generations recipe. Two simple positions that there is never a gray area: Sweet or Savory cornbread. My family lies squarely in the camp of savory cornbread (which works out quite well for me not having an ounce of a sweet tooth in my bones) and my Grandma's recipe would make a sweet cornbread lover go off on a rant with its onions and chili flakes and and salty butter and minuscule sugar to flour and cornmeal ratio. But damn if it doesn't make me swoon every single time.

29 Jun Scored Corn

This recipe was one of the first dishes I remember falling (hard) for as a kid. It fell into the same category in my house as pan-fried pork dumplings- no matter how much you made, there was NEVER enough (how a family of four ate 60 dumplings in one sitting is beyond me- but they were just that good).

31 Dec 15-Minute Vegetarian New Years Appetizer Platter

15-Minute Vegetarian New Years Appetizer Platter If you're like me, you tend to wait until the last minute to do a lot of things. Like making an hors d'oeuvres platter for New Years eve the night before since you have to work right up until party time, or creating the content for a meatless Monday post right as the sun sets on your Monday. In this case, both are colliding so I decided to create something spectacular that will take you no more than 15 minutes to put together (so you'll have tons of time to get all fabulous before the big night). The surprising and complex flavors of all three of these dishes will wow your friends and make you look way fancier than you actually are (so you can sit back and drink copious amounts of champagne while everyone sings your praises instead of slaving in the kitchen and...
