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!!

Taste of Now Ground Pork Taco Salad

Happy Tuesday Everyone!! For some reason I’m craving tacos today, well not just me but Pumpkin too.  I figured I would share this recipe with you today. Do you enjoy tacos? What are some of your favorite toppings?

In between Christmas breakfast and dinner we have this snack session going on at my grandparents house. We are a family that eats while cooking, we can’t help it, it’s hereditary. Taco salad is one of those quick items we throw together to munch on. The meat we choose is always different and really depends what’s left from breakfast. Sometimes it’s ground pork, shredded pork, chicken, fish, whatever. Today I’ll share our ground pork selection.

Ingredients

6 cups torn romaine lettuce
1/2 cup Thick ‘N Chunky Salsa
1/2 cup Shredded cheese
1/2 cup  Sour Cream
1lb ground pork

1 packet taco seasoning
Doritos

Directions

Brown the ground pork, and drain. On medium heat add in taco seasoning (follow directions on packet). Once it simmers, remove from heat.

Arrange Doritos on plate. Place lettuce on top.

Sprinkle on pork.

Then add cheese and salsa.

Add sour cream and serve.

Sometimes I switch up my ingredients:

  • Chicken
  • Beef
  • Pork (chorizo, works well too)
  • Shrimp
  • Fish (sway or cod)
  • corn salsa
  • guacamole
  • cole slaw
  • monterrey jack cheese

My ingredients for tacos depends on how I’m feeling or what I have a taste for. Add some family and friends and make tonight a Taco Night!!
