Cornmeal Waffle

Breakfast for dinner is one of my favorite dinners. Waffles were on the menu, but I didn’t want another buttermilk waffle. Enter the cornmeal waffle. Would it taste like a breakfast corn muffin?

Corn Sugar Cookies

I originally tried this recipe about a year ago.  Overall the results were good, but I found the cookies to be a little too sweet and salty for me, so I decided to try it again.  I loved them.  I don’t usually devour everything I make because after a few months it would be hard…

Besides their amazing Amish Potatoes (which was something I was never quite able to duplicate), they also made really good blueberry cornmeal pancakes. When I saw this…
