There are no rules for what is appropriate to serve for Sunday Dinner, it can be as fancy as you like or as frugal as you need! What makes Sunday Dinner special is who you get to dine with...

We have news! Proudly presenting our unique and delicious cookbook series, “Cooking by the Seat of my Pants!” from Our Sunday Cafe, available right here!

For this week's Sunday Dinner, I would like to suggest the following...

Maple Cornbread Muffins, from Horn of the Moon Cookbook."recipes from Vermont's renowned vegetarian restaurant", author Ginny Callan.

I am not a vegetarian, I haven't even considered it. But I am a child of the '60s and having grown 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 into 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 on my goal list and I hope to become an accomplished cook for all things whole grain and of course lots and lots of vegetables, the fountain of health!

This was another cookbook I was able to pick up 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 mild, but it is a good recipe for a mostly whole grain baked good sweetened with a natural sweetener.

Best of all these are really good, but they are especially good with raspberry jam! While I try very hard to make a recipe exactly as written the first time, I can tell you that my next batch will be 100% whole grain.

They would also be great alongside a bowl of soup, chili or a salad.

  1. One more comment... I just reserved that cookbook through our local library. :) Thank you for the recommendation. I am not a vegetarian, either, but we don't use a lot of meat. Just some. Speaking of vegetables, here is a post I did this morning that you might find interesting:

    1. Hi Yolanda, I noticed your post in my RSS feed, a perfect solution! We do not eat a lot of standard lettuces instead going for mixed greens of all kinds so this tip is one we shall use. We also have what we call "Salad Eggs" where the dressed salad is place on a slice of toast, then a fried or poached egg is placed on top, a delicious lunch dish. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. You can't go wrong with maple syrup, right? Those mufiins look so yummy.

    1. Your right! We sweeten a lot of our foods with Maple syrup.

  3. I have that cookbook! I haven't looked at it in years. The muffins look yummy.

    1. They are not too sweet like a lot of recipes that call for the pancake version.

  4. These sound so good! I'm going to have to add them to the menu.

  5. Cornbread is a staple here at the cottage and we will love your recipe! Hope you are having a great day and thanks so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday!
    Come Back Soon,
    Miz Helen
