Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread
This wasn't the best corn bread I've ever had, nor the worst. It was nice and moist, so wasn't lacking there in the least. I read some of the negative reviews to get a taste for what was going on. Some reviews said it was too salty so since I used salted butter I didn't add additional salt which was a good call. Then others suggested cutting back the sugar because it was too sweet. No I am not Southern and I like a sweet corn bread so I was fine with the sugar amount. Mine did back up a little but I still found it to be a bit dense and flat in places but overall the texture was decent. The flavor was the disappointment. People are right it's quite a bland corn bread, a little sweet, a tiny bit of corn taste but not much. It was okay with butter and preserves or honey on it but alone it was quite meh. It did taste quite a bit better after giving it a short rest to cool down.

Spinach and Strawberry Salad
QUICK, SIMPLE, DELICIOUS! I'd probably cut back on the sugar in the dressing a bit if you have sweeter strawberries as it's almost candy-like in quality but it's darn delicious regardless.

Italian Wheat Rolls
Beautiful rolls, these were light and airy, had an amazing flavor and disappeared in two days! I love the single rise of this recipe so they're actually fairly quick to make! I used them as dinner rolls and also as mini vegetarian/dessert calzone wrappers as well. So good!
