It's been a while since I've done one of these but I definately plan on making it a regular comeback in 2010!! Wish I would have stayed on it more religiously at the end of last year because Trader Joe had some rockin! Christmas goodies! oh well... I'll be sure to highlight them next year!
If there is one thing I am realizing about this journey is that I am trying foods I once disliked, or even new foods I'd never tried before, and actually enjoying them!
One of them being sweet corn bread, oh lord... how I love me some Boston Market corn bread, and in an effort to find a suitable replacement I began my search for the perfect corn bread recipe.
Yeah...I'm a guessing a boxed mix isn't really a recipe but the recipe I did find was well, time consuming, meaning I had to buy a few different boxed mixes and then I feared I would have a freezer full of cornbread. oh, and of course, I was crunched for time...so as I was meandering the baked goods boxed aisle, Miracle Maize only had a few boxes left in their section and hell... if they are almost sold out, that must mean they are good right!?
Anywhoo...the first time I made this, I made it per the directions but yeah... it had too many points for me to be comfortable eating it so the second time around I swapped out the oil for applesauce and me likey! i'd still prefer the Boston Market loafs but these are a great substitution that I will continuously reach for to kill that craving without breaking the bank and that is what a huge part of this journey is about, but I'll save that for another day.
