Ok. Bottom line.
This stuff is awesome.
Unfortunately, I add something a little bad to it.
Really, I am a real food person. What I mean by that is I like to cook with real ingredients and not a lot of processed stuff. That is why I mostly cook at home, and we really barely eat out. It has
everything nothing to do with the fact that sometimes it is crazy to go out to eat with three children. I just really like to eat real food.
Well….in saying that, there is always room to cheat. I mean, this honey butter recipe was really not even my fault.
Who to blame? It all boils down to this…
My good friend Abby.
Yep. All her fault. It all started one summer day….
She invited me over for lunch while our kids played together. She made this awesome white chicken chili and served this amazing cornbread to go with it. It was the first time she cooked for me, and I knew we were destined to be friends. She is an amazing cook. She is also one of those people that you just sit in amazement of how she can actually do all that she does. Really-this girl is AMAZING! She takes care of her three YOUNG children, is super involved in her church, cooks awesome food and still has time to make these cute little crafty things that she says are easy which if it came out of most everyone else’s mouth would be code for “I am good at crafty things so it is easy. For you…this might not be so easy.” But out of Abby’s mouth it is, “I am sure you could do this crafty thing because you are wonderful. And if you can’t, call me, and I will help you all along the way!”
Oh? Did I not mention that? She is one of the sweetest people to ever set foot on this planet.
Oh, and she actually manages to look cute everyday.
Yes, people. It is true.
She actually does not wear yoga pants everyday . She wears jeans… and cute tops. She even does her hair. Did you hear that? SHE DOES HER HAIR! On top of all that other stuff. I mean, really. I am not sure I have done my hair on a day that wasn’t a weekend day since….2004. Seriously. I am not proud.
Despite all her non-faults (as in…I have not found one single one yet! I know…just disgusting!) she is awesome-and her white chicken chili and cornbread are awesome too.
(Hold on..I am really getting to the point of the post here…stay with me!)
She served the cornbread with this delicious, creamy butter that we were slathering on the cornbread as if it wasn’t…um…butter with a million calories. It was so good, I begged for the recipe and of course she gave it to us… because she is sweet and generous as well.
Well, the honey butter contained one very sneaky, secret ingredient. I couldn’t believe it, but I speak the truth. Check out the recipe and you will have to try it to believe it. It is so good.
This Mother’s Day Recipe goes out to Abby-one of the best moms I know, and a very dear friend of mine.
