Cornbread Stuffing

I think most people love stuffing at Thanksgiving. Whether you call it stuffing or dressing, you cannot have turkey without it. When I was younger, I remember my mother stuffing the turkey with it. But as the years went on, she moved away from that and started to cook it on the side, like most people have done. I definitely prefer it cooked in a separate dish because I like crispy edges and you do not have to worry if the stuffing has been cooked all the way through. I also remember growing up on Stove Top stuffing and I thought there was nothing better. Then as I got older, my mom started making her stuffing from scratch with cornbread and you can definitely taste the difference. Fresh is always best! I prefer to use cornbread over regular bread because I like my stuffing to have a slight sweetness to it.

Peach and Raspberry Mason Jar Pies

Have you ever had a pie out of a jar? If not, you have to try these Peach and Raspberry Mason Jar Pies. If you look into my pantry, you will see that everything is in some sort of glass jar. As I have moved more towards glass and not plastic in my home, plastic containers were some of the first things to go. So…I went out and bought all new glass containers, including a ton of mason jars. Mason jars are great for storage and in my opinion it looks more organized. I use mason jars for a lot of things, hence this recipe!

This is a standard fruit pie recipe, but it is just placed in a mason jar. For this recipe, I used 6 oz wide mouth mason jars. The only place I was able to find these jars was at Cost Plus World Market. I am surprised that Ball does not sell this size, at least not in my area. I’m sure you can find these online though.

In this recipe, I used black caraway seeds, which are aromatic with a peppery bite. You can use whatever caraways seeds you have on hand, but I prefer the black ones. What else makes these rolls different? The sour cream! The sour cream makes these rolls soft with a slight tang. These rolls also contain sugar. The recipe states to use 1/3 cup of sugar, but I have also made these with 1/4 cup of sugar. If you would like to decrease your sugar intake, the puffs come out good either way.

Apple Crumble Brownies

A few weeks ago, I went to a dessert place with my friend On the menu, they had a apple cobbler topped with a chocolate sauce. Now, I am not a very big fan of combining apple and chocolate flavors. I feel the two items should remain separate. I want my chocolate in things like cake and brownies and my apple in things like pie and cobbler. I never really thought about combining the two. But now you are starting to see more apples covered in chocolate and apples and chocolate mixed together in recipes. Needless to say, I tasted the apple cobbler in chocolate sauce and WOW it was very good. The two flavors welded together very nicely. So, I thought…I am going to try an apple and chocolate recipe at home and I came up with Apple Crumble Brownies.

Who doesn’t love a nice apple crumble? And who doesn’t love a chocolaty brownie? I cannot resist both. Combining the two really create a delectable and tasty treat in your mouth.

Goat Cheese and Sweet Potato Frittata

This frittata is all about the goat cheese. Goat cheese is made from goat milk and is creamy and salty. There are many different types of goat cheese, but I used goat cheese crumbles in this recipe. I was not always a goat cheese lover. Even though I love cheese (I can eat a whole bar in one sitting if you let me), goat cheese was foreign to me. But now goat cheese is becoming more and more popular as more people are turning away from cow’s milk. Goat milk cheese is a great alternative to cow’s milk cheese as it contains less lactose and is easier to digest. Goat milk cheese also contains more calcium than cow’s milk and is a good source of protein. So as you can see, this frittata is extra healthy.

Do you see the creamy goat cheese throughout the frittata?

And adding sweet potatoes and spinach adds more nutritional value. You can substitute regular potatoes if you prefer.

Make sure you savor every bite of the creamy and light deliciousness. From the goat cheese to the sweet potatoes to the spinach to the eggs…

Yum! EAT and Enjoy!
