Corn Dodgers – An Accidentally Simple Recipe

by Texas Homesteader ~

I was in a hurry. We were planning a day trip to see my father & I always try to bring food along so he doesn’t have to bother with ‘entertaining’.

So early that morning I made the Homemade Soup and some homemade Apple Crumble. And dad loves cornbread, so I whipped up some of my homemade cornbread too (no Jalapenos this time though…)

But as RancherMan came into the kitchen he  saw ‘that‘ look on my face. “What’s wrong?” he asked. 

UGH! My cornbread wasn’t rising. In my haste to get everything done I’d apparently forgotten to add the baking powder.

Looking at the flat cornbread & to make me feel better he said: “Don’t worry, I’ll eat them. They’ll be CORN DODGERS!”

Corn Dodgers are like cornbread, but more dense and not as crumbly. My baking mistake had delicious results and I'll be making them from now on. #TexasHomesteader

Favorite Feature In My Homestead Kitchen: Drop-Level Countertop

by Texas Homesteader ~

So if you’ve been following along my path to simplicity, you know I bake bread.


It’s true that handsome RancherMan of mine is a certified bread-a-holic. He loves bread in all its forms that’s for sure. But he loves my homemade bread the most.

Since I’m always making bread, my favorite feature in my homestead kitchen is this little section of counter top. It’s purposely dropped to a lower level to make my bread-making easier.

My favorite feature in my homestead kitchen is my drop-level countertop. It makes the task of kneading bread so much easier! #TexasHomesteader Continue reading

Fluffy, Delicious, Jalapeno/Cheese Yeast Bread Recipe

by Texas Homesteader ~

When we travel to west Texas to visit my aunt, she always picks up a couple of loaves of our favorite jalapeno-cheese bread from a nearby deli for us to enjoy while we were there.

I wondered if I could make a loaf of that spicy, cheesy bread at home. So I decided that the next time I was baking RancherMan his favorite sandwich bread I’d make one loaf into a jalapeno-cheese bread.

I figured it would as simple as rolling out the dough, sprinkling chopped jalapenos and some grated jalapeno muenster cheese given to us by a very sweet friend before rolling the dough into a loaf before baking.

But did it work?
