Firehouse Cornbread by the 3s

Rating: 4.83 stars
I came up with this during my previous life as a firefighter after finding myself having to repeat my more popular recipes over and over. This one is easy to communicate and even easier to remember, since all of the measurements are in multiples of 3, which explains some of the more arcane measurements! A triple recipe, of course. I use this recipe both to serve with soup or chili, as well as the foundation for Nana's cornbread turkey stuffing. Enjoy!

Banana Cornbread

Rating: 4.29 stars

Having vegan friends in college forced me to find some recipes that are friendly to their choice if I wanted to entertain. This recipe is delicious whether or not you are vegan. I've made it with almond, rice, soy, and regular milk and they are all very similar to identical in flavor and consistency.
