Ultimate Recipe Swap [4]

Since it’s the first week of the year, I get to start our New Year’s resolutions off with a bang with this week’s URS. What other time of the year are a majority of people all geared up to eat better? And enjoying whole grains are a great way to do that.

I love cornbread.I make it with whole wheat pastry flour and whole grain cornmeal [5]. Makes it a little bit more substantial and toothsome.

(Isn’t that a cool word?)

It goes so wonderfully with a myriad of meals: Chili, Lasagna, Spaghetti. For some reason, I really like to serve it with Asian Chicken Salad. Don’t ask me why.

A few years ago, I was making dinner to take to a friend and mixed up a batch of this cornbread. What was I thinking?!

Suzanne’s from Mississippi and her parents (also from Mississippi) were visiting. California girls aren’t supposed to make cornbread for true Southerners! And to top it off, I made it with buttermilk and brown sugar, two ingredients that neither of these mamas had ever heard joined with cornbread.

Well, it’s really good. And they agreed.

Or they were just being polite.

You’ll have to make it yourself and let me know what you think!
