My lovely wife came up with this little nugget. Tired of making dry cornbread? Take a box of Jiffy...follow the instructions, but add about 7 oz. of creamed corn (half a large can). To me, cornbread tastes better when baked in an old caste iron skillet. Don't have one? Most antique stores have them for pretty cheap.
