Louisiana is known for good food and LSU has a reputation for enthusiastic football fans. With the Super Bowl coming up; a friend and I reached back in time to LSU’s Tiger Bait Cookbook and made recipe picks for a football buffet.
Every year I make some healthy New Year’s resolutions: such as eat more vegetables. I got off to a good start when my mother-in-law came to visit. She raved about a Brussels sprouts recipe–the best she’d ever eaten–and bought me two pounds fresh Brussels sprouts at Cosco’s to make the point.
Impress your family with some homemade jalapeno cornbread muffins; but don’t tell the secret that these muffins are extremely easy to make. I made the muffins to serve along with Mustard Green and Ham Soup in the accompanying post.
If you don’t like mustard greens; try this soup made with fresh mustard greens and ham. You might be surprised that greens are so tasty. I served the soup with pipping hot Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins. Both are easy to make and warm the soul on a cold afternoon.
