    Happy New Year!

    It's cornbread. What's inside is goodness. It's a tradition in parts of the USA to have cornbread for New Year's. It's supposed to be lucky. Some say the gold color attracts wealth. Black-eyed peas are also lucky - they are said to represent coins. Collard greens - that's the cash money.

    Sometimes I add fresh/frozen corn. I used to add cheddar; usually not anymore. This time I kept it simple with some hot chilies. It's not a sweet version; I make mine with the tiniest amount of sugar. I also use very little whet flour, and it's 100% stone ground whole wheat. The rest of the ingredients are a mix of corn meal, polenta, and masa. The liquid is buttermilk. I have two corn stick pans and one "corn bread" pan - all cast iron. This makes for lots of crust on every piece, and I put butter all over the top about five minutes before they are done to crisp them up. Preheat the pans and put some butter in right before adding the batter - it sears and gets crispy. It's one of my most-requested foods, but I only really make it a few times per year. Great for potlucks and, of course, wishing everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR. The batch I took out last night all got eaten pretty quickly. I had some left, and I took them to work... but I decided not to share. Yeah. They're tasty.

    They make a calorie-free version. It's called "Tap water."

    It would be unusual if you didn't. I'm happy to share my recipe. Main thing is CAST IRON. and the corn stick pans are the bomb. I prefer them to the triangles, but... they both make me smile on my face and in my tummy. Not sweet, and with a nice tooth. Not at all like cake or bread, but.... I better go get some more buttermilk......

    They sound amazing! I got package mixes to use with my new scone pan, I bet your recipe would come out great in it!

    I had to laugh at how this thread slowed down over Christmas and just started having posts again, I think we've been enjoying "no calories '! Well, I have one Christmas celebration left so here I've been back on track and Saturday is a large family Christmas. Just found out my mom is making Suberage, an Armenian dish. It's sheets of buttered philo dough with cheese and parsley in between the layers (you brush melted brown butter every 3 sheets). It's so good,I usually save calories for things like my aunt's truffles but am looking forward to both!

    Fresh, warm chips and fresh, spicy salsa - if I could stop at a few I'd be good, but never happens.
