The BEST Most Amazing Cornbread Ever!

The BEST Most Amazing Cornbread Ever!

This is no ordinary cornbread. Seriously people – I couldn’t decide whether I should put this in the “bread” section of my recipe book or the “desserts!” This amazing cornbread is not your typical run of the mill, dry crumbly cornbread. This is more like CAKE cornbread.

I remember when my dad first made this and it was like heaven in my mouth! I haven’t made any other cornbread since and I have yet to taste a cornbread recipe I like better. This will quickly become your favorite I can almost promise you!

AND, it’s incredibly easy! Seriously, you can’t go wrong. You literally mix the ingredients in a bowl, toss it in a pan and bake until that gorgeous, golden surface of cornbread assails your senses! Roughly 5 minutes of prep time and 30 minutes bake time and you’ve got yourself a slice of heaven in a 9X13 pan!

I hope you love this recipe as much as I do! So let’s jump in!

You’ll want to have two bowls handy, a large and medium-sized, as well as a 9×13” pan.

In your large mixing bowl, toss together your dry ingredients and mix until combined.

In your medium sized bowl, mix together your wet ingredients until combined. (The butter will typically turn a little lumpy when mixed into the milk and eggs, this is totally okay so no worries!)

Combine the wet ingredients with the dry and mix together well – there will be some small lumps.

Make sure to grease your 9×13” pan and pour the mixture in.

 

 

 

 

 

 

After that, you simply bake for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees until nice and golden and the center is no longer giggly!

Let sit for a couple minutes and then slice and dig in! Serve this with your favorite chili (my favorite is my Whole30 Sweet Potato Chili – YUM!) and you have one of the best cozy evening dinners in! You can make these into muffins or cook in a cast iron or whatever suits your fancy!

Let me know how yours turns out if you give it a go! You won’t regret it I promise!! Happy cooking!

Crockpot BBQ Ribs

Crockpot BBQ Ribs

Oh hot mamma’s! My kitchen seriously smells GOOD!

When I walk into my house and smell the sweet aroma of cooking ribs… mm mm good.

And THEN, combine that with the fact that it’s cooking in the crockpot and therefore I don’t have to do anything else other than EAT THEM – this is seriously the face these ribs will cause you to make. (Unless of course you don’t like meat… awkward….)

Seriously though, if you are looking for an awesome crock pot meal that takes only minutes to throw together and tastes amazing – look no further.

Added bonus?? My husband loves these so I’m sure you’re man will too!

So first thing is to make sure you have your crock pot out and ready to go! I like to drizzle a nice little layer of barbecue sauce in the bottom before I put the ribs in, just to be sure all that goodness covers every inch of those ribs! 

Next, lay your ribs out on a paper towel or a clean surface, with the meaty side up. Mix all your spices together in a small bowl and stir well until combined. 

NOTE: if you prefer to go sugar free – ditch the brown sugar and use cinnamon! If this sounds strange to you don’t be alarmed! Cinnamon is surprisingly crazy good on certain kinds of meat (I use cinnamon for crock pot carnitas too! YUM!) If you aren’t positive about the cinnamon at first just use a little bit to see how you like it.

Next, rub the spice mixture on the meat. This is easiest using your hands! Once your ribs are smothered in spiced goodness, wrap the ribs around the inside of the crock pot with the meaty side facing out. “They” say (whoever they is) that this is the best way to cook ribs in the crock pot but if you are in a hurry just cut up the ribs into three or four sections and throw them in the crock pot. Whatever is easiest for you! To me personally, they taste the same and it doesn’t make a big difference! 

Once your ribs are in the crock pot, smother those babies in barbecue sauce! I put down about 2-3 cups of sauce on the recipe card, but really I just smother all over until I feel satisfied that there are no sauce free spots on any of those ribs! So smother away with how every much barbecue sauce you want! Then throw your lid on and let the magic happen! Typically I will cook these for about 6-8 hours on low –  but if you are anything like me and forgot about dinner until 2 in the afternoon, cook for 4 hours on high! The ribs are done once the meat begins to fall off the bones! 

Eat these on their own or serve with something else scrumptious like potato’s and roasted cauliflower! Whatever strikes your fancy!

Let me know how the rib cooking goes!

Bon Apetit!
