Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread
This is the best cornbread I have EVER tasted. It was so good, that I just had to leave a review! Easy to mix up, moist and sweet....great with chili! Try it, you won't be sorry. I will try it with some whole wheat flour next time as someone suggested, but I always try the original recipe first! Enjoy!

Simple Beef Stroganoff
I make this a lot, but my recipe calls for worchestershire sauce...add as much as you'd like. Also I add 1 cup of sour cream. It is one of my sons favorites!

Mini Cheesecakes
I made these for my son's surprise 30th birthday party- everyone loved them. The filling puffs when baked, but will lower as it cools. Mine made 14-15 a batch. I plan to make these at Christmastime to give to the neighbors! Enjoy!
