Happy Tuesday All. What a beautiful day it is here in Grand Rivers Kentucky. Home of Patti’s 1880’s Settlement. We had such a wonderful Easter weekend. We hope you did as well. We were happy to see all of our guests. Old friends and new ones as well. The Dogwoods were blooming and really showing off. It was just a beautiful day all the way around.
After leaving Patti’s on Easter Sunday, I went home and prepared our Easter dinner at Moms. 13 of us in all. Only missing one grandchild, who lives out of state. It was a wonderful gathering at
home too. What a way to end the day.
Now, on this beautiful sunshiny day. I am a little excited about a new product we are selling in
River Birch Mercantile. And online as well. We have a new honey line and my favorite is the Hot Honey. The sweet and the heat combined is just an amazing flavor sensation and started my head spinning about how I could use it. So many possibilities. But for today I narrowed it down to just a couple, and joined together they make for an amazing, spicy, little entrée.
So I started with my spicy cornbread. Added some corn and red peppers, a little sugar and topped with freshly sliced jalapeños.
While the cornbread was baking I took an 8oz container of whipped cream cheese, added some chives, ¼ cup of shredded parmesan cheese, ¼ cup sharp cheddar 1 TBSP finely chopped jalapeño and 2 TBSP Hot Honey. Blended that together and sat aside. In another bowl I mixed 8oz of whipped butter with 3 TBSP Hot Honey.
In a small sauté pan I heated 2 TBSP of the Hot Honey butter I just made, added peeled and deveined shrimp. I used about 8. Sautéed those for just about 2-3 minutes.
When the cornbread was finished I let it cool for just a bit. Dropped about a tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture and stood four shrimp on top of the cream cheese mixture. I poured a
bit of the melted hot honey butter that was left in the skillet over the top and sprinkled with chives. My people loved it. I hope yours do as well. And that left over Hot Honey butter is good on just about everything. Put it on a biscuit, put it on some chicken, chicken wings especially. Like I said, the possibilities are endless.
Until Next Time,
