Kelly’s Choice Cerebral Palsy Conference

Hello my name is Kimberlee and I have Spastic Diplegia Cerebral Palsy. Usually when I say that and there is this look of shock that comes across people’s faces. Well on Saturday March 31st, I didn’t get that response. I can be in a room with people who have CP and/or has a child that has CP. This conference was organized by Kelly’s Choice a local non-profit that was started by Edwina and Quarry Wilson. They are the caregivers for their daughter Kelly, who has CP.

National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day

That’s right April 2nd is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day. Growing up I always loved PB &J, it was a sandwich that I knew I could always get and always eat. I was one of those kids who would change out the jelly each time though. Most kids want the standard grape jelly. Me, I wanted to be different. I would ask for Strawberry, Peach, Orange, or my favorite Blackberry.

To share in the festivities of today I’ve decided to showcase some peanut butter and jelly recipes from some of my Courage 2 Earn blogger friends. Be sure to check out their pages and enjoy the recipes.

Taste Test Tuesday: Jiffy Cornbread

Yes, that’s right this post says Jiffy cornbread. I was originally going to write about something else but Sunday dinner inspired this post. Growing up there was always some type of bread to go with dinner, whether it be biscuits, yeast rolls (yes, made from scratch), cornbread or spoonbread. You just knew that you were having brad with EVERY Sunday dinner, you just didn’t know what kind. Then you had to decide which recipe was going to be used lol.

I love me some Jiffy cornbread, shoot I love cornbread in general. Call me ‘country’ if you want, I don’t care. LOL Jiffy gives you so many options. There is a recipe on the back of the box for the cornbread, so you can use that. Me…… well I add some extra stuff in mine, I’ll add about 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract and a tablespoon of mayonnaise. The vanilla was an accident and has stuck with me for years and the mayo is something I got from my gramma. It does make the cornbread a little fluffier. I love it this way.

 

Now there are times where I will add other items like broccoli (about 2 cups) and cheese (about 1 cup, shredded); cheesy broccoli cornbread is so good and you get your veggies. Other times I’ll make hush puppies and add 1/2 cup of finely chopped onions and 1/4 cup of flour. You can’t always find hush puppies in the store, so why not make your own.

Do you have any variations of cornbread? Let me know!!
