Sunday Supper Suggestion, Cornbread with Broccoli and Cheddar

Celebrate the family with your own Sunday Supper. Sunday Supper is one of our favorite ways to bring the family together! We offer the following suggestion, and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

I have been a bit absent here, yet so very busy at work with a web-based software conversion that turned out to be a train wreck. Two years history lost at conversion upload. I needed to rebuild all the financial records in order to bill for services.

However, I am glad the project is far enough along for there to be a point of some sanity and I can resume part of normal life. And just to clarify, normal is very underrated! Needless to say, during this time we ate what ever the hand touched. It might have been leftovers, or if I was lucky, something I threw into the crock-pot before going to work for the day.

Delicious Cornbread with added Broccoli and Cheddar Cheese.
This smelled so good baking! 
Now I get to dig right in!

But today I had a bit of time and I found fresh broccoli in the vegetable drawer. Then I found this recipe over at Claudia's blog and wanted to give it a try with our favorite cornbread recipe as my starting point.

Cornbread with Broccoli and Cheddar
inspired and adapted from:  Claudia @ What's Cookin Italian Style Cuisine
425-degree oven

1 c corn meal
1 c flour
1/3 c sugar
3 t baking powder
3/4 t salt
1/2 t granulated garlic
1/2 t oregano
1 t basil
2 T dried parsley

3 eggs
1/3 c oil or melted butter or bacon drippings (use what your prefer.)




heaping 2 c chopped broccoli, steamed until tender - I used 1 large crown.
1 c grated cheddar cheese

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients, stir well to combine. Set aside.

In a small bowl beat the eggs, beat in milk and oil. Stir in broccoli.




Add milk mixture and grated cheese to dry ingredients and stir together quickly, lumps may/will remain.  Scrape mixture into a 7X11 baking pan.

Bake 25-35 minutes or until tests done in your oven.

Sunday Supper Suggestion, 5 minute Brownies

Celebrate the family with your own Sunday Supper. Sunday Supper is one of our favorite ways to bring the family together! We offer the following suggestion, and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

I have been making these brownies for ages! They originally came from the side of the Hershey's can, I think, but no matter they are delicious, easy, economical and we made them again last night. They aren't much more difficult than a box mix, so, make some already!


I have them titled in my aging recipe binder as 5 Minute Brownies, which leads me to believe they were part of a recipe series. Not too long ago I shared a delicious 5 Minute Chocolate Cake. And they really don't take much more time than that. All mixing is done by hand.

Another childhood favorite, 5 Minute Brownies.
5 Minute Brownies

5 Minute Brownies
adapted from Hershey's (I think)
makes 1 9X13 pan
350-degree oven

3/4 c cocoa
1/2 t soda
2/3 c oil - divided
1/2 boiling water
2 c sugar
2 eggs
2 t vanilla
1 1/2 c flour
1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt

1-2 c broken walnuts - if desired


In a large bowl, combine cocoa, soda and 1/3 c of the oil.




Add boiling water. The mixture will foam up.















Add the remaining 1/3 c oil, and sugar beating well. Add eggs and vanilla, beat again.  Add flour, baking powder and salt. Mix in until mixture is smooth and no dry pockets remain.


Turn into a prepared 9X13 pan, sprinkle with nuts.

Bake 35 - 40 minutes or until done in your oven. Let cool, cut into bars.


Enjoy!
