Cornbread Dressing

Bring something a little different to the table with this simple but exciting stuffing. Your friends and family will think you spent hours on this dish, but don’t worry – we won’t reveal your secret. You’ll need: ¾ stick butter, 3 cups chopped onions, 2 cups chopped celery, ¾ teaspoon Kosher salt, ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper, 7 cups day old cornbread, 2 tablespoons minced fresh sage, and 2 cups of chicken or vegetable broth.

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Meanwhile, in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter. Add onions, celery, salt, and pepper; cook until slightly softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl, and add cornbread and sage. Mix well.
  2. In the same skillet over medium heat, melt 3 tablespoons butter. Add cornbread mixture. Add broth and stir to moisten. Dot with remaining butter, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bake until brown and crispy on top, 40 to 50 minutes.

Cheddar with Honey, Walnuts & Dried Cherries

This simple appetizer is all about the presentation. If you have a wood cutting board, cheese knife, and a taste for simplicity, then you’ll be able to pull of this dish with ease. You’ll need: 6 to ounces of various types of cheddar, 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts, 2 tablespoons chopped dried cherries, 1.5 tablespoons honey, water crackers for serving, and fresh apple slices.

  1. Place cheese on serving plate or board (let stand at room temperature for about 30 minutes if time allows).
  2. Top with nuts and dried fruits, then drizzle with honey. Serve with crackers and fresh fruit slices.
