Karl’s Jalapeño Cornbread Pudding

Jan is on a soft food diet—nothing where she has to bite with her front teeth—and I have spent the last two weeks thinking up interesting foods that she can still eat. She decided that she could handle chili, but tortillas would not work. She likes bread pudding, so we agreed that I could make a soft cornbread pudding to serve on the side.

Karl’s Venezuelan Arepas Rumberas (arepas with pulled pork)

Jan had been going on about the stuffed arepas that she had had at Pica Pica.  You can fill these corn bread pockets with almost anything. I want to make my filling Venezuelan, but this was for a weekday meal, so I did not want to start from scratch.

Venezuelan Arepas (corn pocket breads)

Jan went to Sonoma a few weeks ago and while she was there she went to a Venezuelan restaurant, Pica Pica. She came back raving about arepas, Venezuelan corn pocket breads. I was ordered to learn how to make them.

Karl’s Cornbread & Claudia’s Johnny Cake

I am making ham steak tonight and my choices were baked yams or cornbread to go with it as the starch. I chose cornbread. While Jan will not touch cornmeal “mush” she loves cornbread.

Karl’s Corn Bread Stuffing for Pork Roast

I am spending hours roasting a pork shoulder to have the pulled pork for tamales on Sunday. I wanted something more than my usual boiled parsley potatoes to go with it. Stuffing came to mind. However, my thanksgiving stuffing is enough for a crowd and it has been a while since I’ve used instant stuffing. Since this will be for pork I am using cornbread and I have reduced the proportions, because this is just for the three of us.
