a blog I wrote about a year ago. Since then I've found other uses for cornmeal. Most recently, pancakes and dinner rolls. I had some leftover buttermilk from the Cookie Salad I made for a holiday potluck, so you know what that means - pancakes! I came across a recipe on my new favorite recipe site Food.com. Cornmeal Molasses Pancakes sounded like a really good, old-fashioned recipe. I love the flavor of molasses and have been a little obsessed with gingerbread lately. I added some cinnamon and cloves to the batter and they turned out to be the perfect winter-morning breakfast.
Cornmeal Dinner Rolls. I saw the recipe and knew I had to make it very soon. It was the perfect roll to go with the Turkey Soup I mentioned in my previous blog. Baking bread and rolls is another one of those things that remind me to "live simply." It's such a basic thing to make and I've found it to be a very satisfying process. These rolls did not disappoint. They were so soft and pillowy, I just wanted to rest my cheek on one and take a nap. A nice, fresh-baked-bread-scented nap. Heavenly.
