Christmas Corner

Christmas – that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance – a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved.
- Augusta E. Rundel



Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childhood days, recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth, and transport the traveler back to his own fireside and quiet home!
- Charles Dickens



Christmas is most truly Christmas when we celebrate it by giving the light of love to those who need it most.
- Ruth Carter Stapleton



Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts.
- Janice Maeditere



Jalapeno Cornbread Recipe

Ingredients:
1 can cream corn
3 cups cornbread mix
1 3/4 cups milk
1/2 cup oil
3 eggs
5 jalapeno peppers, seeded (Use fewer peppers for a milder version)
1 large onion
1 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated

Directions:

Step 1:
Mix cornbread mix and cheddar cheese in large bowl.

Step 2:
Blend corn, milk, oil, eggs, peppers and onion in blender. (You can leave out some of the milk in blender if it fills it up too much, and then add in later).

Step 3:
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well.

Step 4:
Bake in greased pan at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes, or until top is golden brown and toothpick comes out clean. See photo below for how it should look when done.



Note: This is my own special recipe that I've been making and bringing to family holiday dinners for the last 20 years or so. It is always a favorite, and there are never any leftovers. This isn't your standard dry cornbread - it is actually very moist due to all of the wet ingredients. Definitely give this a try!
