 QUOTE
"To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people and
affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the
betrayal of false friends,
To appreciate beauty,
To find the best in others,
To leave the world a better place,
Whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed
social condition.
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived,
This is to have succeeded."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

-----------------------------------------------------------------
 TRIVIA
Robert Burton's 'The Anatomy of Melancholy' published in 1621,
proposed 64 remedies for gas produced by eating beans.

 QUOTE
"Non cooks think it's silly to invest two hours' work in two
minutes' enjoyment; but if cooking is evanescent, well, so is
the ballet."
Julia Child

 RECIPE REQUESTS FROM READERS
.................................................................
CORNBREAD
1 1/4 pounds self rising white cornbread mix
1 1/2 cups All purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon double acting baking powder*
1 teaspoon salt

6 large eggs
1/2 cup canola oil
1 quart milk
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1/2 cup sour cream

Combine the dry ingredients.
Beat the eggs, then add the remaining liquid ingredients
Combine the wet and dry mixtures and mix.
Mix thoroughly, but do not over-mix
Refrigerate for 1 hour. (this allows one part of the *double
acting baking powder to work)
--------------

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Spray a 10 to 12 inch cast iron skillet thoroughly with 'pan
spray' (aerosol can of oil).
Heat the skillet in the oven for 5 minutes.
Remove skillet from oven and pour in batter to fill skillet
about 1/2 to 2/3 full.
Return pan to the oven and bake for 25 to 35 minutes, or until
top is a medium dark golden brown.
--------------

*Double acting baking powder produces carbon dioxide gas to
'rise' the batter in two different ways.
The first component works when it gets wet, the second when
heat is applied.

NOTE: The sour cream is for flavor and texture (so it is not
as 'oily'), but it makes the batter 'heavier', so the extra
baking powder is needed.
The vinegar is for both flavor and to make the mixture slightly
more acid, so the baking powder works better.  The salt also
for the same reasons.
Use this information to play with your own recipe
Try it with yellow corn bread mix, following the package
directions, and use the explanations above to change the recipe
slightly.
Try it with 1/2 white and 1/2 yellow cornbread mix.
Try slightly different proportions of oil and sour cream, sugar
and vinegar to experiment with different flavors and textures.
Use slightly more extra baking powder for a lighter texture.
Experiment to get 'your' ideal cornbread.
