Easy Savory Cornbread

I like all kinds of cornbread—traditional cornbread is great, but it’s also fun trying out different add-ins. This Easy Savory Cornbread starts off with some corn muffin mix and gets its’ savory flavor from a can of diced tomatoes and green chilies, along with a cup of cheddar cheese mixed into the batter. Pretty easy, right?

I don’t make pies often, so I needed an easy recipe, and I found it at a site called the Sager Creek Vegetable Company (the site is no longer up, so I can’t link to it). This recipe makes three, yes three, sweet potato pies, so it’s perfect if you’re needing to make lots of pies for the holidays!

Dark Chocolate Caramel Bars

Chocolate and caramel are such a great combination! And I’m very partial to dark chocolate so I love these Dark Chocolate Caramel Bars! This is a really good and easy recipe—it uses cake mix as part of the ingredients for the yummy chocolatey crust, so it’s simple to put together. I usually prefer making things from scratch, but sometimes a mix comes in handy if you’re in a time crunch. And these bars are so good you may not mind that they’re made with cake mix!
