Jambalaya and “Disneyland” Cornbread

Yes, I probably should have made this for Mardi Gras, but I didn’t think of it in time. Besides, there’s absolutely no reason not to eat Cajun food every chance you get!

The cornbread recipe is from Shan-made; I found it on Pinterest. I’ve never been to Disneyland, so I can’t speak to whether it actually tastes like the stuff they serve there, but the idea of combining cornbread mix with yellow cake mix seemed pretty awesome. The sweetness of the cornbread goes very well with the spicy jambalaya! Read More Jambalaya and “Disneyland” Cornbread

I made turkey three-bean chili the other day and, as my trusty Crock Pot worked its magic, I wondered what I should serve it with. Naturally, the phrase “chili cheese nachos” was the first thing to go through my head, but I wanted something a little more substantial and less bar food-y. So I scoured the trusty Joy of Cooking for some ideas, and quickly settled on a good one: cornbread. Read More Easy, Yummy Cornbread
