Pepper Cornbread

Pepper Cornbread

If you like smoked or grilled food, chances are you like cornbread. I've made cornbread from mixes, but it usually comes out a little sweet for my liking. I make this version that has no flour in it, just cornmeal for a base. It has a nice coarse texture, but is still tender & makes a great side dish for ribs, BBQ chicken, pulled pork, chili & most Mexican dishes. You can trust me... everyone knows Canadians make the best cornbread!

Serves: 8 to 12

Almond Butter Cookies

Almond Butter Cookies

These cookies are so yummy & you can customize them in many ways. Don't limit yourself to just almond butter... you can also use an equal amount of either cashew butter, peanut butter (either smooth or crunchy) or any type of nut/seed butter you like. Make a double or triple batch & freeze them, so you'll always have some on hand for a cookie craving!

Yield: 2 dozen cookies

Peach Apricot Ginger Spread

Peach Apricot Ginger Spread

This mildly spicy, yet wonderfully sweet spread is best served on Naan bread (see Tip# 1) & served with a variety of spicy Asian style foods, including Thai & Indian food. It will last for months in the frig, but mine never lasts that long... as I'm always finding new dishes to pair it up with!
