Richard worked from home yesterday. It was nice to have him around. I had asked him if he wanted me to bake anything and he said no, or really that he didn’t care. Colby asked me to make him these oatmeal cookies. The problem is Richard doesn’t like those cookies, so maybe I’ll make them like Monday so they can go to work and Colby can take them with him for his lunches.
So when I came home from the grocery store today I was in the mood to bake something, but didn’t want to make cookies. I’m not a big cake or pie eater as discussed here and here. So what can I make? Hmmm Colby had suggested banana bread, but the last few times I made that I was the only one who ate it.
Well lets see what I have for ingredients…
The last time we went to Costco (which I refer to here as Not BJ’s… funny story), I picked up mixed berries. The bag is a mix of raspberry, blueberry and blackberry. I bought it under the premise of I was going to start making smoothies a few days a week for breakfast, yeah that hasn’t happened yet.
I just bought cornmeal at the store since we didn’t have it when we grilled the pizza and need it before we try again. Hmm I was in the mood for cornbread or corn muffins the other day can we combine the two things? Sure why not??
So off to the internet I went. I found this recipe for Sweet Blueberry Cornbread Skillet and figured I could tweak that to work. I didn’t make too many changes. I used a bit more than a cup of the fruit and used a combination of honey and agave nectar.
I thought it turned out really yummy. No one else has tried it. My boys didn’t and that is no shock to me and Richard isn’t home yet. I will certainly enjoy having this for breakfast tomorrow with a cup of coffee.
Quick question. would you prefer that I start typing these recipes out on my blog or is the link to the original recipes good enough?
