By golly, I would not be outdone by my husband! I went straight to Pinterest and searched for Southern Cornbread. This picture popped up and it was said to be 'grandma's recipe'. So I went to the link here and realized I had all the ingredients, except the buttermilk. I made it using regular milk and let me tell you, this is delicious cornbread!!! It was crispy on the edges and creamy in the middle..... so so good!
The men loved it and Daddy went back for seconds and thirds! So yes, this is my new 'go to ' cornbread recipe. Let hubby make it.... pffft!
For dessert, I looked in my pantry and decided to make an old school dessert: Cherry Dump Cake.
Sometimes the 'old faithful' recipes are the best! I didn't have any pineapple, so I dumped two single serving containers of applesauce in the bottom with the cherry pie filling. I had pecans from my daddy's freezer, some that my mama had picked out by hand, shortly before she died. I think we all thought the recipe was just a little bit sweeter because Mama's hands had been on the pecans. (I only use half the cake mix; we like it better this way)
Speaking of 'old faithful' recipes, do any of you still make sausage balls? I started making them again last year and sent several batches out as Christmas gifts to my dad's friends. I took some to the church Christmas party and someone exclaimed "I haven't seen these in years!" They were eaten up in no time. Why do we forget those yummy recipes sometimes? What are some of your tried and true recipes?
I've mentioned my daughter and her husband's Little Blue Gas Station on my blog before. Finally, after much persuasion, she has decided to blog a little about it here. I hope you will enjoy seeing what she and her husband are transforming into a cute little home! Please leave a comment if you visit her!
