I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Savory Skillet Cornbread

This made from scratch cornbread with it's crisp edges goes perfectly with a nice bowl of chili, or soup, or ribs or....just about anything!
1 cup flour
1 cup cornmeal
1 tbsp honey
2 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 cup bacon drippings or melted butter (or some of each)
1  1/2 cups milk with 1 tsp vinegar added
2 eggs

Butter a 9" cast iron skillet and place in the oven, then pre-heat the oven to 400 F.

Melt the bacon drippings and/or butter, add the honey and set aside. Whisk the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, salt and paprika together in a large bowl. Add the milk/vinegar and eggs then add the bacon drippings etc. Mix until combined. 

Remove the skillet from the oven and carefully pour the batter into the hot pan. You should hear a sizzle!
Bake at 400 F for 20-22 minutes.
Remove from oven and top with a pat of butter.
Cool 5-10 minutes before slicing.
And I'm still amazed at how nothing sticks to my cast iron skillet!
