Buttermilk Cornbread Muffins

The first time I went to Famous Dave's BBQ I tasted with some skepticism the small, flat cornbread muffin that came with my dinner. What a surprise: the muffin was very moist and just sweet enough while still retaining that fundamental taste of cornbread. So I decided that I'd try my hand at a tasty cornbread muffin that I could serve with any meal.

Yields 10 muffins.

Caesar Salad Dressing

This recipe is based on a recipe I found online; I held back a bit on the garlic and anchovy paste to meet my tastes. This recipe yields enough to dress a large bowl of caesar salad (for ~ 6 adults).

Cajun Spice Blend

One thing I dislike about commercial seasoning blends is the amount of salt they include; not only am I paying a premium for something which is usually mainly salt, but it's impossible to balance the spice-to-salt ratio just as I like it. This recipe leaves the salt out; the Old Bay and oregano make the biggest difference. If you don't believe me, try making the recipe without them then add them.

Pasta Dough

Pasta has a bad rap when it comes to "eating healthy." So long as you don't have issues with gluten, though, I tend to think that the main problem people tend to have is that it's incredibly easy to overindulge. It's easy to buy a pound of dried pasta; instead, practice moderation in pasta consumption by going to the effort of making it yourself from scratch.
