(2017) Skillet Lemonade Cornmeal Cake

Please don’t ask me why I have this in my files (because I have no idea), but it’s a recipe from Chick-fil-A. Guess they were encouraging us to cook with their lemonade? I love skillet cornmeal cakes – something about that crisp crust and the texture of the cornmeal ….

You could make this with apple juice, orange juice or whatever you have on hand. Although the lemon is pretty tasty.

Cornmeal and Kale Soup

Oops – this is another recipe that came from seriouseats.com but I couldn’t resist sending it when I saw that pretty bunch of kale in our boxes. You could make this with grits and just cook it a little longer until the grits are tender.

Cathy Conway’s Collards with Smoked Tomatoes and Cornmeal Dumplings

Chef Cathy Conway is the founder/executive chef of Avalon Catering – completely dedicated to local food. I do not remember how I got this recipe from her, but it’s delicious. I’m just loving dumplings these days.

Do you have some Riverview cornmeal leftover from last year’s boxes? Then you’re all set.
