Chilly.....

....weather calls for Chili! Chili and cornbread to be precise. My cornbread recipe comes from my mom and it is the best, and easiest cornbread recipe ever!

Cornbread

1 box butter recipe yellow cake mix
2 boxes jiffy corn muffin mix

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Pour mixes into a large mixing bowl and stir in all of the additional ingredients called for. (this usually ends up being 1 stick butter, 5 eggs, 2/3 cup milk, and 1 cup water, but it may be different depending on the brands you use.)
3. Pour cornbread into a greased 9x13 and bake for 35 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.

Serve this with honey butter and it will be better than cupcakes :)
Mia wore her chef's hat that Aunt Stephanie sent her for Christmas.
Max offered to do the dishes. What a great helper!

i grew up on, i guess you could call it 'old fashioned' cornbread and cannot get used to the sweet, cakelike taste of many cornbreads i've had. i didn't realize some people actually use cake in their recipe, lol! :)
