Hispanic Heritage Month Recipes

Happy Hispanic Heritage Month! Each year, from September 15 to October 15 Americans celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month by sharing the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America. Last year - 2021 was especially significant because it was the 200th anniversary of Costa Rican Independence from Spain. Here are a few traditional & unique Latin American recipes you may want to add to your menu: 

Skillet Corn Bread

I have fond memories of making corn bread from a box mix and then eventually from scratch with my Mom growing up. So when I heard that my local park system was sponsoring a "Corn Bread Contest," I decided to participate. The contest is located at the beautiful Historic Walnford Park, it has the original house, barns, and a working grist mill. It's a beautiful place to spend a leisurely Sunday afternoon. I'm trying to come up with a special recipe for this contest, but in the mean time I'll leave you with my tried and true skillet corn bread recipe. Wish me luck and I'll post my contest recipe soon!
