Cornbread Pancakes & a Cranberry Cinnamon Compote

cornbread pancakes2OMG – this recipe is HEAVEN in my mouth.  A friendly reminder: I am from the south and to say that I love cornbread would be a huge understatement.  I will tell you, my mom makes THE BEST cornbread you’ll ever eat.  Hands down.  THE BEST.  Sadly, I’ve yet to perfect her cornbread.  My problem with cornbread is this:  I refuse to make a big pone of cornbread (unless I’m making it for a large group of people, which normally gets turned into dressing) because I would literally sit and eat the whole thing with lots of butter smeared on every single piece (or bite) I eat.  What man wants a wife that sits around eating cornbread and butter all day long?  That’s not an attractive quality, K?!  Continue reading “Cornbread Pancakes & a Cranberry Cinnamon Compote”

If I’m ever worried or concerned about how a recipe tastes….I give Gabs a big bite and wait for her response.  She’s 2.  When something goes in her mouth that she does NOT like it immediately comes out.  Gaby’s way of eating my scones:  lick ALL of the icing off, then eat the scone!   Thankfully, she loved them!

Mama’s Chicken & Dressing

We’ll call this my “Thanksgiving in June” recipe!  This is not my most healthy meal at all.  It’s NOT paleo, gluten free, OR vegan.  BUT I did use all organic ingredients, so that has to count for something good, right?!  No GMOs, baby.  It’s a meal we typically only eat two, maybe three times a year, and it’s ALWAYS served at Thanksgiving.  I’ve been super homesick for the last week or so and needed some comfort food.  Continue reading “Mama’s Chicken & Dressing”
