LODGE CAST IRON COOKWARE

WOW!!!  Lately, I have been getting some incredibly neat stuff in the mail!  Today, I received two free and extremely nice gifts from Cornbread Millionaire’s Founder and Creative Director Beverly Davis just for recently ordering her picture cookbook.CORNBREAD COOKBOOK  This was a wonderful surprise that I was not expecting until Ms. Davis messaged me that she was sending me some free gifts for placing my order.  Well, I had no idea that she was giving me something so nice!  Lodge cast iron cookware is now into its second century of existence–that’s over 100 years!

I remember well my mama’s humongous, black, cast iron skillet from my childhood, and I especially loved the cornbread she cooked in it!  Until today, I only possessed one large Lodge cast iron skillet similar to Mama’s, but now thanks to Ms. Davis, I am also the proud owner of two more beautifully and finely crafted Lodge skillets!LODGE CAST IRONLODGE CAST IRON 2  Thank you so much, Ms. Davis!!! 🙂

Have an awesome day, everybody!  And as always, this is from my heart to yours!

CRACKLING OR PLAIN?

CORNBREADMy husband loves crackling cornbread!  While I love it, too, there are times when I prefer to have it just plain.  This past Wednesday, we had pinto beans, cube steak and gravy (cooked several hours in my slow cooker), and cornbread (crackling for him and plain for me.)

Sometimes when I first take my cornbread from the oven, I like to cut a slice open while it’s still piping hot and spread on some butter.  Mmmm-mm, talkin’ ’bout good!  And how many of us don’t love us some buttermilk and cornbread!!!  Ooh-wee, my mouth is watering just talking about it!  How do you like your cornbread?

And speaking of cornbread, over five years ago, Beverly Davis, Founder and Creative Director of Cornbread Millionaire, started her own cornbread career business based on her grandma’s secret recipe.  Since then, she has developed her very own variations and creative serving suggestions.  For example, how do the following creations sound (just to name a few):  Creme de la Corn Muffin, Cornbread Meal Muffin:  Squash & Onions, Homegirl’s Cornbread Chili Sandwich, and Sweet Potato Cornbread Donut-Muffins?  But Ms. Davis also has some other fabulous creations.

Please click here to visit her beautiful website and see everything she has to offer.  I just ordered her elegant picture cookbook that contains baking tips, creative cornbread recipes, humor, kernels of positivity, and photos of flowers from her photography adventures.  Best wishes to Ms. Davis in her endeavor!

As always, this is from my heart to yours,

Maxine 🙂
