Discoveries in the Kitchen

About My Cookbooks No Comments

Have you ever just had a recipe come to mind? Something makes you think, “wow, I’ll bet those things will taste good together.” 

I am not sure what made me think of the new recipe that i came up with today. I made Spicy Cheeseburger Mini Corn Muffins.  I browned & spiced ground beef.  Then i added some jalapenos. You need to let the meat cool down & then mix in some cheese.  Now it is time for the cornbread. Once it is mixed up, you spoon in  some cornbread mix into a prepared mini muffin tin. (you need to spray it with non stick), then add the meat mixture. don’t make it too full. Top with another spoonful of muffin mix.

After they set up for a minute or 2, these little muffins come right out & are delicious. They turned out like jalapeno cornbread with cheesy hamburger in the middle.

This will be in the newest Love of Cooking: Beef book that will be out this week.

Don’t you just love it when an experiment works?

Tell me about a cooking experiment that turned out better than you expected.

The History of Labor Day!

About My Cookbooks No Comments

“Labor Day: How it Came About; What it Means

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

Founder of Labor Day

More than 100 years after the first Labor Day observance, there is still some doubt as to who first proposed the holiday for workers.

Some records show that Peter J. McGuire, general secretary of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and a cofounder of the American Federation of Labor, was first in suggesting a day to honor those “who from rude nature have delved and carved all the grandeur we behold.”

But Peter McGuire’s place in Labor Day history has not gone unchallenged. Many believe that Matthew Maguire, a machinist, not Peter McGuire, founded the holiday. Recent research seems to support the contention that Matthew Maguire, later the secretary of Local 344 of the International Association of Machinists in Paterson, N.J., proposed the holiday in 1882 while serving as secretary of the Central Labor Union in New York. What is clear is that the Central Labor Union adopted a Labor Day proposal and appointed a committee to plan a demonstration and picnic.”

This is quoted from the US Dept of Labor. After those first union workers proposed a day to recognize all workers, we seem to just have our last long weekend of the summer that many use to gather with friends & family. How ever you choose to honor the American Worker, food is almost assuredly a part of the celebration. I hope that my Labor Day book becomes a go to cookbook for Labor Day Weekend & that everyone uses it all year long as well.

Enjoy!  Maggie
