Foodie Friday: Kitchen Knife Skills

Recently I started taking some cooking classes at Sur La Table. This latest one was a bit different though. Instead of going in a cooking a themed dish we learned how to properly use a Chef’s Knife. Safety in the kitchen should be a pretty high priority and this class was great for that because

Foodie Friday: Bacon-Cheese Cornbread Muffins

Today’s post is not a recipe because I wasn’t completely happy with how they came out. They did taste good thought! I actually used the recipe for the cornbread itself that is on the back of the Pioneer Corn Meal bag. However, with the added ingredients I felt that this recipe came out a bit
