The Best Sweet Cornbread

The Best Sweet Cornbread

When I was young, I loved it when my mother made this Sweet Cornbread. I would always ask for more because it was delicious, moist and it tasted like cake. Later I learned that it tasted like cake because a cake mix is one of the ingredients! Yum! This Sweet Cornbread is now a recipe I make regularly for my family, and it’s definitely the best cornbread I’ve tasted. I add it to our meals when I make soup for dinner.

Easy Pork & Veggie Won Tons

Easy Pork and Veggie Won Tons

During my childhood, my mom would make these Pork & Veggie Won Tons for New Year’s Eve every year. It was something special that I looked forward to each year. They are so good, you can’t just eat one! And the ketchup and horseradish sauce add to the delicious flavor. This recipe was given to our family from one of my best friend’s mother. She is a wonderful cook, and has shared some delicious Asian recipes with our family. Making these Pork & Veggie Won Tons has become a tradition and now I make them for my children every year for New Year’s Eve.

These Pork & Veggie Won Tons are perfect to take as appetizers for holiday parties, New Year’s Eve, Chinese New Year or football tailgate parties. They really are a yummy appetizer to have wherever you go.

Peppermint Oreo Truffles

Peppermint Oreo Truffles Christmas Holiday

I made these Peppermint Oreo Truffles for my family and they are yummy and chocolatey. I especially love the peppermint flavor when I bite into the truffle because I think of the holidays. What I also love about the truffles is that they only take four ingredients to make them. I had three of the four ingredients in my pantry, and only had to pick up the almond bark during one of my grocery shopping trips.

For the outside of the truffle, I chose to use almond bark but you could use a chocolate bar. You could even do half and half and make some truffles with white chocolate and some with chocolate.

Wrap up a handful of these truffles in a cellophane bag and add a tag and bow to make a sweet treat for neighbors and friends for the holidays. Here’s how to make the holiday Peppermint Oreo Truffles:

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins

We have been harvesting a lot of zucchini from our garden this year. I’ve been shredding and freezing it, and I’ve also been making Zucchini Cake with Fudge Frosting, Zucchini Bread, and these delicious Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins.

Since this Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffin recipe makes about 52 muffins, once they are cooked and cooled, I’ll put them in gallon freezer bags and place them in the freezer. The muffins freeze great! We love to pull them out of the freezer for snacks for the kids and also for my husband when he goes to work. And we add these muffins to the school lunches. By the time the kids eat their lunch, the muffin is thawed. If you are wondering what to do with all the zucchini in your garden this year, then you’ll definitely want to make these Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins.
