Cornbread is great with chili, and this Cowboy Cornbread is extra-good because it’s meaty, it’s cheesy, and green chilis and jalapeños give it a little kick! Actually, this cornbread seems like it could be a meal in itself, served with a salad or soup. Or you could cut it into small squares and serve it as an appetizer or snack—this would be great for game day!Continue reading
I’m a big fan of cornbread and this Cheesy Zucchini Cornbread is perfect for summer, when there seems to be no shortage of zucchini at farmer’s markets and in most homegrown gardens! It’s a savory, cheesy cornbread, flavored with Italian seasoning and a hint of garlic and onion. Cheddar cheese is mixed in the batter and sprinkled on top. Continue reading
Cornbread muffins are so good with chili and soup in the cooler weather months. But when you add crumbled bacon, cheddar cheese, and green onion, it really takes them to the next level! Continue reading

Tailgating season is in full swing and I wanted to share a game day spread I put together, along with two tasty recipes I came up with using Krusteaz® cornbread mixes (thanks to Krusteaz® for providing the “game day” spread ingredients and supplies!). The photo above shows the Cornbread Sausage Balls and the photo below shows the Cheesy Chili-Cornbread Bake. The two mixes I used were Krusteaz® Honey Cornbread and a great new flavor, Fire Roasted Cornbread.
This cornbread is so good, you’d never guess it was so easy! If you’ve ever been to a restaurant called Tippins (as far as I know, there’s one in Kansas City, Tulsa, and Dallas) and had their delicious sweet cornbread, this recipe tastes a lot like that. It’s great with chili or just on its own, warm and served with honey butter.
A friend had told me about this cornbread recipe after I talked about how good the Tippins cornbread was. And when I made this for a potluck, everyone wanted the recipe. They couldn’t believe how easy it was. It’s made with a blend of cornbread mix and cake mix. I typically like to make things from scratch, but I do like to make this every so often. If you’re not crazy about baking with mixes, this recipe may not be for you. But it is really, really good, so you might want to make an exception and try this out!

This cornbread tastes really good with honey butter! (see recipe below)
