Wills Kitchen: Mexican Cornbread Casserole
Winter Storm Quinn dropped 7 inches of snow on us today. A great day to stay in and make a hearty meal!
I had some Jiffy Cornbread Mix I had to use up and found a recipe that I thought Evan and I would both like...
Wills Kitchen Mexican Cornbread Casserole-- recipe here. Delicious! (Only Evan's side got the jalapeños)
It looks like Will has some other great recipes, too!
Soughdough Dinner Rolls
I'm a big bread lover, and have really enjoyed trying different bread recipes. I was intimidated to try sourdough bread till one of the recipe blogs I follow posted a recipe, with a link to how to make an easy 'starter'. So, I made it-- and so glad I did! It's a simple recipe that just involves some waiting time. The easy Sourdough Starter Recipe I used is here, and the Sourdough Rolls Recipe is here. Great thing is, the 'starter' keeps in the refrigerator, so I'll be ready to go next time. :-) Try it, you'll like it!
I enjoy watching baking competitions on TV and was inspired to try something a little over-the-top for Evan's birthday cake this year-- a four-layer, supposed-to-be-'pumpkin'-shaped chocolate cake with orange-colored peanut butter frosting. Each layer had chocolate frosting and chopped up Reece's cups in the middle, and as you can see-- the whole thing is covered in fall sprinkles and peanut M-n-Ms. Pheww! Yeah, it's a little rich... While it's no showpiece, Evan liked it and it was fun to make!

Thank you, Jesus, for your love...
And the loved ones You've given me...
to enjoy this life with!
"That's the Best Frosting I've Ever Had" (Recipe)
