Cooking cornbread & mixing up dressing in my Vintage Pyrex Primary Yellow 404

I knew I wasn’t making enough dressing for thanksgiving even though I doubled my cornbread batch, next time I’ll be sure to multiply it by 4. My husband wanted more dressing so this Sunday I made up another batch.   This was great because I wanted to make sure we finished up all the leftovers.   We did get a break on Saturday because I made tacos.  Trust me if I hadn’t mixed the taco meal in, they definitely wouldn’t have jumped for joy over Sunday’s dinner. 

Y’all know I’m a pyrex junkie.  I absolutely love my pyrex.   The best part about loving my pyrex,  I use my pyrex. Faithfully.   While mixing up my batch of cornbread in the mixing bowl I wanted to try cooking in it too.

Since this was my first time I did pour the cornbread mix into another bowl.  Which was my primary yellow 404.  I mixed it in the 404 Spring Blossom and with it being one of my favorites I didn’t want to risk it.  So, I poured it in my yellow primary and popped it in the oven on 350°.

Since I didn’t set a timer I can’t tell you how long it cooked.  What I did do was…  after browning I used a skewer to poke it in the center to test it.

image

The skewer came out clean and I allowed it to cool before mixing up my dressing.  The coolest part about this was after the cornbread cooled, I didn’t have to get another mixing bowl.  I mixed it in the same bowl after crumbling up the cornbread.

image

This was so easy!

image

Once everything was mixed I poured it into another pyrex dish to place in the oven.

image

I have no idea why no haven’t don’t this before.   All of the Vintage pyrex dishes are made out of the same material.  However,  I associated mixing bowl for mixing and casserole with oven.  Hmmm… I may be making cornbread again tomorrow ;).

Do you have any pyrex mixing bowls and if so, have you used them in the oven?

Spice up that Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix

We grew up on this stuff and with the hustle and bustle of life, there are times you need some help in the kitchen.

image

I don’t favor many boxed foods and have recently streamed down can goods to fresh produce mostly.  However, there are days you’d like to get in the kitchen and get out. 

We’re experiencing another Polar Vortex and tomorrow will be day two of school cancelled due to weather.  Making some soup for the soul was a necessity ( recipe post coming).  Made some more Chicken & Acorn Squash Soup and had to please my meat and potatoes man. So, I whipped up a batch of cornbread.  You know I love throwing a twist on my meals.

Directions
2 boxes of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix + 2 eggs + 1 can enchilada sauce mixed well.

image

Oil skillet with olive oil and place in oven to heat up a bit. Pour in batter and place in oven until done.

image

This cornbread didn’t stand a chance!

image

Moist, slight spicy kick and absolutely delicious!

image

Do you make any out of the box items that you add your own special touch too?

It’s an obsession and I know it

I think…I think…I think I know how it started, but I’m not really sure.  I think it started from me picking up pieces from the thrift to photograph my food pictures for this here blog.  Yeah, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. 

Then I started seeing Milk glass, Pyrex, Corningware and Pinterest. Oh, Pinterest!  Yeah, that’s how I got to this place. I’d love to say that I’ve turned into my mother. I can’t even say I’ve turned into my grandmother. I’ve turned into somebody’s mama that collects vintage stuff! Yeah, that’s it. 

I’m being transparent here so don’t judge me 😉  It started with one itty bitty piece of this stuff.

A itty bitty piece so not the one pictured. Which led to this.

And this.

Before you feel sorry for my family and think they live in neglected conditions. They don’t and they eat pretty good if I say so myself.

Collecting the Cornflower Corningware is an obsession indeed, but have you ever cooked in one of these things? They cook AWESOME and the cleanup is even BETTER!!! Not to mention it makes cooking that more enjoyable.

I have an all time favorite song that was out in the early 90’s. My family and friends know the song and every time they hear it I’m sure they think of me.

image

And every time I put this baby on… I sing that song. It’s time for the percolator. It’s time for the percolator….

I’ve turned into somebody’s mama and I likey 😉
