Cornbread Casserole

This stuff is sooooo good, please try NOW.

1 stick butter, melted
1 container sour cream (80z)
1 small can green chilis (I used Hot and they are not really hot, but these add excellent flavor to the dish)
1 can cream style corn
1 can whole kernal corn (do not drain)
2 eggs (optional, but I have added them every time)
1 box Jiffy corn bread mix
1 Tbs sugar (optional)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Combine all ingredients in a large box except the cheese. Add the corn bread mix last. Pour in a greased 9x13 baking dish. Bake at 350 for approx 30 minutes. Top with the shredded cheese and return to the oven for 5 to 10 more minutes.

Feel free to add drained ground beef and maybe some onion for a one dish meal. I may try taco meat next time I make this. I think I'll layer it in the good does this sound?!

Chocolate pudding dessert

14 graham crackers (approx)
1 pkg chocolate pudding
2 cups milk
1 cup Cool Whip
1 can Cherry pie filling

Combine milk and pudding as directed on package. Blend in cool whip. Place a single layer of graham crackers on the bottom of 9 inch square pan. Place 1/2 pudding mix on crackers. Layer with another layer graham crackers and then the remaining pudding. Add one final layer of graham crakers and then top with pie filling. Refridgerate for several hours before serving.

I doubled for a 9x13 pan.

This is such a great summer dessert. The crackers become cakelike and the tart pie filling is a great compliment to the smooth chocolate pudding mixture. This can also be made with vanilla pudding.

Cake Mix Cookies (Strawberry in this case)

So, I'm thinking about added a new recipe every Friday...Fabulous Food Friday, maybe??? I don't have much willpower on any day of the week, but Friday's are BAD. I tend to bake because I find Friday to be celebratory. Here is today's Fabulous Food Friday post. Don't be surprised if most of FFF's are desserts!

Cake Mix Cookies-in this cake Strawberry White Chocolate Chip

1 box Duncan Hines Strawberry Supreme cake mix
2 large eggs
1/2 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla (optional)...I feel like every cookie deserves vanilla
3/4 cup white chocolate chips

Mix well and roll into balls and place at least 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 10 - 12 minutes. Be careful not to over cook.

I can't wait to try other combinations - lemon, orange, devil's food, butter. I think cake mixes are great. How about lemon cranberry or chocolate butterscotch. The combinations are endless. Let me know if you have any other fabulous combinations.
