A stick of butter on Halloween night

Halloween night I ate no candy!
But shoot, I may have eaten a whole stick of butter.
We had chicken tortilla soup and this cornbread with honey butter
You MUST make this . I have tried many cornbread recipes, even the one where you add a yellow cake mix to a box of cornbread mix (which I didn't think was all that great) This is THE only corbread I will ever serve in my house again. I want to serve soup and chili once a week just so I can accompany it with this.
Sometimes I post a recipe and hope people that try it will like it as much as I do and worry they may not. I have no doubt this will be a winner in your kitchen. So put it on your menu for a cold day this week with your favorite chili and get cooking. You can thank me later. Just beware, before you know it you may consume an entire stick of butter in the form of this honey butter.
Ready for action :
When we went to Grandma Susan's house to trick or treat, we were greeted with this sign:
When we looked in the window, this is what we saw. How cute is this?
It was a fun night, butter and all.
The look on Addie's face is the look I had on my face when I ate the cornbread,
sheer joy I tell you, sheer joy.

You're not exaggerating when it comes to the cornbread sista. That honey butter recipe should come with a warning!!! YUM

Thanks for having me to dinner!

My kids often put the same sign on my bedroom door while I am napping on Sunday afternoons.

It isn't as adorable then...

And... looking forward to trying the recipe. I LOVE me some cornbread with yummy honey butter.

I am so sad. I don't remember seeing those cute kids come to my house. :( What adorable costumes.

Well, I ate a whole stick of butter and a whole slab of cream cheese and a whole bag of powdered sugar, in the form of your wonderous cream cheese frosting, with a whole loaf of pumpkin bread. SO THERE!

I love looking at your blogs. I was sick with the swine flu on Halloween, so I just put the candy out there in a bowl with a sign that read, "Witch is ill, just take one." Yesterday I made your lemon drop cookies. We were celbrating Cookie Monster's 40th anniversary. They were delicious and Bill and I ejoyed several of them. Now, I will try the cornbread recipe I've gotten from you. Thanks!
