Maple Cornbread Muffins

"recipes from Vermont's renowned vegetarian restaurant", author Ginny Callan.

I am not a vegetarian, haven't even considered it. But I am a child of the 60's having growing up in Marin County California, and as such I am attracted to ideas or ideals of a different nature. Having been exposed to the colorful world around me at a very impressionable age, I came away with what I consider to be the best of it all. Vegetarian cookbooks seem to fall in that category, for me; a carnivore.

Also they usually have great whole grain baked goods and main dish recipes that are full of vegetables. Both of these items, using more whole grain and eating more vegetables, are sadly on my side bar and have been there for a long time, unable to be deleted; because I have not accomplished either as I cook.

This was another book I was able to pickup for a song, at the local thrift store. The recipe that caught my eye right away was the, Maple Cornbread Muffins. We had these for breakfast this morning, along with bacon and eggs. The maple flavor is very faint, but it is a good recipe for a mostly whole grain baked good sweetened with a natural sweetener.

Maple Cornbread muffins
400 degree oven

1 c whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 c all purpose flour
2/3 c cornmeal
1 T baking powder
1/2 t salt2 eggs
1/3 c real maple syrup
3/4 c milk ( I almost forgot this ingredient, you can tell; it is not in the photo!)
1/2 c butter - melted and cooled*

Whisk together all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Beat eggs, syrup and milk together, beat in butter. Combine wet and dry ingredients. Spoon evenly into 12 prepared muffin tins.
Bake 20 minutes or until golden. Makes 12.

These are good, they are especially good with raspberry jam! They would also be great along side a bowl of soup, chili or a salad.

Enjoy!

Welcome to Our Sunday CafĂ©, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

These meatballs are delicious and wonderful to have on hand for quick dinners. Simply let the container thaw in the fridge while you are away, and when you return home, cook up some mashed potatoes or rice.

Salisbury Meatballs
While the meatballs are baking begin making the sauce.

1 stick (1/2) butter
1 pound of mushrooms sliced
1/2 c flour
2 c whole milk or light cream (I used milk)
1 T beef base
1 T Worchestershire sauce
1/2 t pepper
4 c water

Saute the mushroom in the butter. Beat the flour and pepper into the milk until no lumps remain. Stir all remaining ingredients into the mushrooms, bring to a boil. Let simmer 5 minutes stirring constantly. Set aside to cool.

Divide the meat and the sauce evenly into 3 one gallon freezer bags or reusable containers. Freeze.

To serve, remove the package from freezer; let thaw in the refrigerator. See heating directions below:

Stove top: Empty into a skillet and bring to a simmer, do not boil.

Oven: Empty into a casserole, bake 350 degrees 30 minutes.

Enjoy!
