Cornbread Recipe

This Cornbread Recipe is made from scratch with a great texture and delicious flavor. It's perfect topped off with some butter and honey or along side homemade Chili.

Cornbread Recipe

I have searched so long for a cornbread recipe that wasn't hard or dry or crumbly. I finally got it right with this recipe. This is my go-to cornbread recipe, for sure. It's the one I always reach for when I need a good ol' piece of cornbread. I love it topped with this honey butter topping. I use it on my Mormon Muffins as well. Always. You can also use this recipe as the topping for a Tamale Pie. Make this soon. Do it!

Caramel Apple Poke Cake

Hello Mandy's Recipe Box readers!  It's Lori from A Pinch of Glitter, and I am so happy to be back with you again this month, sharing one of my favorite desserts of all time.  My parent's have an orchard. They grow everything from peaches, cherries, apricots, and more!  One of their biggest crops is apples, and every time that I go to visit them during apple season I seem to go home with more apples than I know what to do with. Last year during apple season, I remember coming home with an entire bushel of apples - for just me and my husband.  There was no way that we were going to be able to eat all of those, even with one packed in each of our lunches every day.  I tried to use them everywhere I could, and made things like my Mountain Dew Apple Cinnamon Dumplings, Apple Jello Salad, and Milky Way Caramel Apple Nachos.   But I still had apples left.

Beef Stew

There's nothing quite like a bowl of hearty Beef Stew. A slice or two of some french bread makes for a comforting meal on a blustery day. I also have a giveaway with Hammer Stahl cutlery after the recipe!
Beef Stew
It's starting to feel like fall! I've not yet turned on my heaters, but we do have an electric heater in the living room going to take the chill off and I love it. Yay for that crisp chill in the air! I am sure I will be singing a different tune come winter. But for now nothing is better than curling up on the couch with some pumpkin spice hot cocoa and a good book. This Beef Stew also hits the spot on a fall or winter evening. I used my dutch oven for this recipe since it goes from stove top to oven for cooking. Don't confuse it with a cast iron dutch oven that you cook outside or when camping. This is the heavy enamel coated dutch oven kind. I also used new favorite knife from Hammer Stahl.
