Eat it :: Cornbread

Before the Littles hit the street for trick or treating we're having soup and cornbread for dinner. This is my hands down favorite cornbread recipe. When I make it, I eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner until it's gone. With lots of butter of course.  I like to share so here is the recipe just in case you need to make something tonight.


  • Preheat oven to 325.
  • 1/2 C Butter
  • 1/2 C Sugar
  • 4 Eggs
  • 4 oz Green Chiles
  • 1 can Cream Style Corn
  • 1/2 C Shredded Jack Cheese
  • 1/2 C Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 C Flour
  • 1 small box Cornbread mix (I use Jiffy)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt

Mix butter, sugar and eggs, adding eggs one at time. Then add green chiles, corn and cheese. Mix in flour, cornbread mix, baking powder and salt. Grease and flour 13x9 pan. Bake for 55 minutes.

PS - Why is Trader Joe's so awesome?! Washed and cut Kale? Love it. Thank goodness for them now it's even easier for me to get it into the meals since we like to eat cornbread and all. Are you all in love with TJ's as much as I am?

I'm going, you?

Have I told you all I'm going to Alt Summit? I'm hoping it might just light a fire under my non-blogging arse. Yes I know my posts are rare these days. I just want to go have fun and meet some new peeps plus light that fire we were talking about.

I'm hitting up the SLC with my local blogging buddy Marni. Any of you going? I would love to meet some of my favorite blogging friends!

Randomness :: TV dilemma

I've watched the new Rachel Bilson show and every time I watch and see this

 I think when are Lorelei and Rory going to show up fresh from their breakfast at Luke's Diner?

Maybe I'm too old since I remember the set from Gilmore Girls, maybe Hart of Dixie just sucks and I need to just stop watching or maybe I have too much time on my hands...I can't decide. Is it weird that I still miss Gilmore Girls? 


Just a few of my favorite Halloween images from the web this season.

Let's bake

Fall hits and I feel the inexplicable pull towards the kitchen. Baking of course. No cookies, I loathe baking cookies; let's do breads, muffins and desserts shall we?

I know I'm not the only one who swoons while looking at baked goods. What are making this fall? Hit me up with some good new recipes!
