Christmas Corner

Christmas is the gentlest, loveliest festival of the revolving year - and yet, for all that, when it speaks, its voice has strong authority.
- William John Cameron



Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we're here for something else besides ourselves.
- Eric Sevareid



What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace.
- Agnes M. Pahro



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!
