One Month & A Cornbread Recipe

Yippee!  Today my blog is one month old!

Below is one of my favorite songs:  "I Should Be Sleeping" by Emerson Drive.  I'm posting this song today, because its lyrics could easily be tweaked to show how I feel about this blog.  I find myself often up late at night (when I should be sleeping...) thinking about Sundresses and Smiles!  I am constantly getting new ideas for blog posts from the world around me; I find myself mentioning posts I've read in conversation; and I look forward to free time when I can check my blog reads out!  I am so glad that I started this new endeavor and have had all of your support along the way!



If I could re-write the lyrics to this song, instead of saying:

"After just three days (just three days)
And one great kiss (one great kiss)
It's way too soon...
To be obsessing like this!"

I would say this:

"After just one month (just one month)
And one great post (one great post)
It's way too soon...
To be obsessin' like this!"

So, again, thanks to all of you!  This blogging thing would not be nearly as fun (or addicting) if it weren't for all your support!

Additionally, I'm going to do my first link up today with one of my favorite bloggers Daphne at Flip Flops & Pearls.

Today's recipe is for the easiest and most delicious cornbread!  I am super picky when it comes to cornbread.  Back in the fall, I was babysitting at our Alpha Phi Advisor's house and she had made some of this cornbread.  I ate SO much...I couldn't stop myself!  I asked her for the recipe and made it for Thanksgiving.  My family loved it and I have a feeling it will become a Thanksgiving tradition.  So thanks to Farrell for sharing this wonderful recipe with me!


It smelled so good that my dad stole a piece before I could even snap a picture!


Ingredients
2 packages Jiffy Cornbread Mix
2 eggs
2 cups sour cream (I have used reduced fat or regular)
¼ cup sugar
1 stick butter

Preheat oven to 400°F.  Melt butter in 9 x 13 regular pan in the oven.  Combine remaining ingredients and pour into pan.  Do NOT stir in the butter, just layer batter on top.  Bake for 20-25 min until brown.  Cool 5 min.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

  1. That is yummy. We make the same, but we use oil instead of butter and a can of creamed corn. So good.

    I'm addicted to blogging, too.
