Topped with blacked peas-chopped onions and a dash of vinegar…

Hey Ya’ll, Kenny here to share a recipe that I found in one of my wife’s older cook books. It’s titled – Country Living Recipes – and was written by Jean Wickstrom Liles. The recipe is by Mrs. N.A. Gilcrease from Corsicana, Texas.

As you all know, I am a big fan of corn bread and thought I would try making this recipe myself.  (Please…hold the applause for later.)

Now don’t get me wrong here…I love my wife’s Country Corn Bread the best. You knew I had to say that. After fixing up this bread I found it to be a little dry but, tasted pretty darn good. It would go great with black-eyed peas or fried fish which is what we enjoyed it with.

O.K. enough of my jabbering…here’s the recipe—>

  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon soda
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  1. Combine the dry ingredients.
  2. Add egg and buttermilk mixing well.
  3. Pour batter into a well greased 8 inch square pan.
  4. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or until it is golden brown.

I think i would have used a wider pan for a thinner bread. We like our corn bread a little cruncher.

Hope you try this corn bread and enjoy eating it. Oh yeah…..don’t expect me to do this too often….

Stop Light Potato Saute

I’m not sure about you, but husband and I love the smell of peppers and onions sauteing in the frying pan and it’s something that is cooked quite often in our home and on the grill! I can remember when I was a kid, yes I can remember some things, going to calm bakes with my folks and they always served Italian sausages piled high with peppers and onions. Of course being the fuss-pot that I was, I wouldn’t touch these sandwiches with a ten foot pole, but I did love the smell coming from the booth that served them. Well this recipe, combines the onions and peppers with potatoes and this month is Bell Pepper Month!
