MOM’S DELICIOUS CORN BREAD

This is the second recipe I am sharing from my mother’s recipes and this selection is the recipe for cornbread, good Southern cornbread.

 I’m going to cook my mother’s recipes one by one and document the journey.  When I’m finished – I will have a recipe book waiting to be put together. This is a pretty easy one, but it is something every Southerner should know to make. And, cornbread should alway be cooked in cast-iron. In fact, if you look closely, you can see the pan I used actually makes corn shaped cornbread – how cool is that???? It was great to come across this pan – because it came already seasoned. 

If you don’t know about seasoning cast-iron cookware – you can read about it here. This is a sacred tradition in a Southern household. In fact, I had a houseguest that wanted to cook while here. When they departed, I discovered to my HORROR my favorite cast iron skillet had been washed!!!!! I know the guest was trying to be kind, but I will never allow that to happen again.

You can download the recipe HERE

I previously posted a recipe for her delicious Hawaian Chicken, you can download that recipe here.

 

 

A GIFT TO YOU – MOM’S RECIPES

Last week was the week of Thanksgiving in the United States. Americans across the land generally stop working and get together with friends and loved ones to give thanks. The year of 2016 has been a challenge, there have been some ups and there have been some downs. But, it has been a year of opening myself up and learning and receiving. This is the first year I haven’t actually had a “job”. But, still I worked. 

It was a year of transition and education, resulting in reflection and meditation. We had to move my mother into memory care. As a result, we spent time cleaning out my mothers house. As many of you know, that can be a very emotional journey – with emotions ranging from highs and lows. 

As  I started going through my mothers recipes, I decided to cook her recipes one by one, document the results and make a page for each recipe. So, today I offer you the first recipe I cooked, Hawaiian Chicken. Hawaiian Chicken Yes, I could read this recipe, but I’m not sure everyone else could.

Here is a version for you to download and print to try out on your own, click here.  Adjust the recipe to your taste, I use freshly squeezed pineapple juice and more garlic. And, yes, the 36 hours marinating works.

Next up – maybe her “Very Good Cornbread” of “Very Italian Chicken” (her names).

I’ll close with a picture of mom with all her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
