SENDING LOVE HUGS & FLOWERS PHOTO BK.jpg

A beautiful photo book of various, colorful flowers from my gallery that I designed on Shutterfly and ordered recently. It went to someone whom I felt would appreciate the beauty of the flowers and expressions as much as I do. 🙂

CORNBREAD MILLIONAIRE’S PICTURE COOKBOOK WITH KERNELS OF POSITIVITY

CORNBREAD COOKBOOK (FRONT)I am so excited!!!  Today, I received my beautifully illustrated, picture cookbook from Ms. Beverly Davis, Founder & Creative Director of the fabulous Cornbread Millionaire.com.  And exactly as the title states, not only is it filled with mouthwatering cornbread recipes, but it also contains kernels of positive, inspirational sayings.  She even weaved in some uplifting bits of humor.  Then there are the recipes, of course, which is why I ordered it in the first place, but to my exquisite delight, she has added extra bonuses throughout which also include some of her beautiful and refreshing photos of flowers.

Listen to a few of the recipes whose descriptions alone make them sound appetizing:

  • Cornbread Breakfast Pizza with Cheese, Eggs, and Sausage
  • Pepperoni & Cheese Flapjacks
  • Jumping Jalapeno Pineapple Hushpuppies
  • Red Leaf Tilapia Salad with Cornbread

Okay, I’ll stop.  By now, your mouth is watering like a fountain and you’re probably in need of a huge bib.  I don’t know which recipe I want to try first, but I’ll certainly let you know what I make when I do and how it turns out.  If you haven’t yet ordered your copy of Ms. Davis’ cookbook, you can still do so by going to her website and placing your order.

CORNBREAD COOKBOOK (BACK)Ms. Davis is such a positive inspiration!  I love her assertive and decisive attitude and her trademark slogan, P.U.S.H. (PERSIST. UNTIL. SUCCESS. HAPPENS.)

It is indeed a pleasure to know her and consider her my friend.

As always, this is from my heart to yours <3!

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 🙂
