Costco and cornbread

We've been keeping busy here with some home improvement projects along with regular household tasks. Rob has been spending lots of time in the yard and garden and has appreciated the cooler temperatures this spring. If the rain holds off we may go strawberry picking tomorrow with Nora and two of the children that she nannies.

I've been wanting to mention two products which I have tried from Costco that we really like. One is the Kirkland plastic wrap. It really clings well and the box has a sliding cutter rather than a serrated edge and it cuts great. It is the best plastic wrap I have ever used. The other product is the Kirkland frozen pineapple chunks. We have eaten some with cottage cheese and used the majority of it to make pineapple smoothies/sorbet. I just put some pineapple, vanilla yogurt and a little orange juice in the food processor and blend it until it is smooth. It makes a cool refreshing treat in a flash.


Many years ago when we lived in Michigan The Detroit News published this recipe for cornbread. They said that it had won a blue ribbon at the state fair. It is attractive and tasty. You might want to try it if you want to dress up your cornbread. I usually bake it in a pie plate and then cut and serve it in wedges. It freezes well when wrapped in plastic wrap and then placed in a ziplock bag. Reheat briefly before serving.


Topper Cornbread

1/4 cup chopped green onion
1 Tbsp. butter
1 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
4 tsps. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1 cup yellow cornmeal
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 cup oil
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 tsp. celery seed

Cook onion in butter until tender. Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cornmeal. Stir together milk, eggs, and oil and then combine with the flour mixture. Blend just until combined. Pour into a greased and floured 9" round pan. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the batter. Top with the onions and then sprinkle with celery seed. Bake 25-30 minutes or until it tests clean. Bake at 375 degrees.

Have a blessed weekend!

    Becka, thanks for the pineapple recommendation. We’ll have to try that. Also, I agree with you on the Kirkland plastic wrap. Once i tried it, I’ve never gone back to Glad wrap.

    The cornbread recipe sounds delish! Jalapenos on top would also be quite tasty! We like spicy! I will try this soon. Thank you! (I think I’ve tried more of your recipes than I have of Pioneer Woman’s!) 🙂
