Moist Jalapeno Cornbread

Cornbread.   I love you.  

Jalapeno Cornbread, I especially love you.

I love how moist you are. I love how brown your edges stay.  I love the kick of the jalepenos.    

I’m totally in my 90s music mood right now and am jamming to Britney Spears “You Drive Me Crazy” and that’s exactly how I feel about this cornbread.

Cornbread is such a comfort food.  It’s always a dinner favorite on the side to soak up the juices, gravy or just devour by itself.  When I found myself craving some cornbread to go along with BBQ ribs (recipe coming soon!) I whipped up this recipe.  This cornbread is a winner, and for those that love a spicy kick you will love it.  This recipe uses 3 tablespoons of diced jalapeno peppers which makes it spicy enough to give it that extra pop, but not too hot that you can’t eat 6 pieces of cornbread in a row.  That’ real talk y’all. 

This recipe asks for 1 cup of buttermilk which makes it as soft as a cloud.  I didn’t have buttermilk but I learned how to make some quickly with ingredients you have in your kitchen I’m sure!  For 1 cup of buttermilk you need 1 cup of milk + 1 tablespoon lemon juice.  That’s it!   Place your tablespoon of lemon juice in a 1 cup measuring cup.  Add your milk to fill up to the 1 cup mark.  Then let stand for 5 minutes, you will see it will start to thicken up.  Boom, buttermilk! It’s that easy!

Next time you’re looking for a quick cornbread, look away from your usual box mix and make some homemade cornbread.  It’s well worth it.

Here’s the mix with our homemade buttermilk added in.  I don’t think I’ll ever buy store bought buttermilk again!

Let the bread cool then cut into pieces.  Try not to eat them all at once.

Smokehouse Brisket Sandwich

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Arby’s for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Arby’s was a childhood favorite of my family.  There was one local Arby’s restaurant and it was located in a mall which was about 20 minutes away.  Getting Arby’s meant that I must have been a good girl because I was absolutely in love with their Roast Beef and Cheese sandwich.  Actually I still am, those sandwiches can’t be beat!   

Can I tell you guys how  much I love brisket?  You might have noticed by the Slow Cooked Beef Brisket recipe or my multiple brisket photos on Instagram followed by multiple hearts.  But what happens when you don’t have hours to slow cook your own?  Leave it to Arby’s to solve all your problems in a delicious way!

Arby’s is introducing the Smokehouse Brisket sandwich which is slow cooked for at least 13 hours.  That means it’s smoked low and slow, keeping all the smokey flavor you crave in your brisket.  Even better, it’s there when you want one.  No waiting hours for dinner,  with Arby’s sandwich, just go and grab one!  The Smokehouse Brisket Sandwich is piled high with slow-smoked beef brisket, smoked Gouda cheese, crispy onions, BBQ sauce and mayo.  It’s served on a crispy toasted bakery style bun.  Am I making your mouth water yet?  

Look at this beauty.  Let’s all take a minute and sigh.

And please don’t forget to get a side of Arby’s curly fries.  Do they get any better than that? 

When  I told Matthew about this sandwich, especially those crispy onions on top, I think he was going to faint.  I needed to grab a chair and fan the poor boy!  That’s what good brisket sandwiches do to you, you know?

Don’t know where your local Arby’s is? Find an Arby’s here.  

Are you excited to try the new Smokehouse Brisket sandwich? Leave a comment letting me know how hungry you are after looking at this sandwich!
