Soup and Cornbread

On any given evening at the Patty house: Mom makes the main course, and I usually take care of the side dish/salad/dessert (one of the three). That's just how we've been doing things lately. I love to make dinner with Mom-- I learn so much about cooking, get to be a taste-tester, and enjoy some of the sweetest conversation as we chop, simmer, mix and bake.

Anyway....on to soup...

There are few things more comforting than soup on a chilly day. Mom knows that well! She found a delicious recipe for a red lentil soup online. Success! We loved it...which is why I wanted to share it with you.

Here's the link to the recipe: Lentil and Potato Soup. We omitted the kale, cilantro and file powder, just because we didn't have it on hand. I'm sure it'd be great included too.

And now for cornbread. Ah, how I forget how much I love cornbread! Warm, crumbly goodness, with honey drizzled on top. I need to make this recipe again soon. It's a healthier version, and is naturally gluten-free. I think next time I would use less sugar, but otherwise it was perfect.

I hope you're having a joyful week!
