Autumn's Harvest Blog Hop

Autumn's Harvest Blog Hop

What do I love about the fall?

You mean aside from the tang in the air, the crisp snap of Cortlandt, Rome and Macintosh apples, the cozy nights?

Oh, honey, that's simple. It gives me the perfect excuse to indulge in one of my favorites: Howdy, Pilgrim Cornbread Puddin', an easy-peasy, but delish recipe!


1 can creamed corn
1 can kernel corn
1 c. sour cream (8 oz.)
3 beaten eggs
1 stick butter (or margarine)
1 box Jiffy corn muffin mix

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease oven-proof casserole dish. Supposed to be 1-1/2 qts, but the one I used in the picure abve is 2 qts and it's okay.

You can simply smoosh everything together in a mixing bowl, pour into the oven-proof dish and bake.

If you're more finicky, you can do it this way:

Pour butter and corn into mixing bowl (or the casserole you'll bake it in; it doesn't really matter, unless neatness counts!)

Blend in sour cream.

In separate bowl, beat eggs and stir into corn mixture. Add muffin mix and mix.

Bake 1 hour (or less) at 350.°

Don't burn it. Keep checking. It's better moist and creamy inside, golden brown, with slight crust on top. It's done when the center is firm and a knife or toothpick comes out more or less clean.

What else do I love about autumn? I love how spooky and shadowy everything turns when darkness descends and those sexy mystical currents swirl through the air. As they do in Sleepy Hollow, the setting for THUNDER and LIGHTNING, my two new hot 1Night Stand paranormals from Decadent Publishing, and SLEEPY HOLLOW DREAMS, my erotic paranormal from The Wild Rose Press.
Here's the blurb from THUNDER:
Lonely young witch, Veronica Hardwicke, has struggled to get on with her life after the death of the elderly husband who’d left her a fortune and a sprawling estate in mystical Sleepy Hollow. When frightening things go bump in the night on a stormy Fourth of July, who better to call than the sexy developer and contractor, Sean Jones, who's been renovating her mansion for months?
Sean may grace the tabloid pages with a different supermodel on his arm every night, but it's Veronica who drives him nuts. Ignoring his instinct to stay away, he answers her summons.
Will the thundering passion of their 1Night Stand tear down the barriers between them?

Here's the blurb from LIGHTNING:

In mystic Sleepy Hollow, succubus Lily Night put her prom date, Campbell Jones, into a coma after a night of wild, unbridled sex. She has steered clear of mortals ever since, afraid of damaging them or worse, not to mention the inconvenience of knocking out the power every time they have sex.
Successful architect Campbell Jones has lived with strange powers and a sexy secret since that prom night. He’s buried himself in work to forget the woman who’d dumped him at the ER then vanished from his life without a trace.
Neither Lily nor Campbell have forgotten that night or the love they’d shared. Will a 1Night Stand help them bury their past?

I also like the dark time of the day in autumn [and winter] and falling leaves but hate the weather -rain, wind..
btw, Lightning sounds good :)

Carla said...

We do a version of bread pudding that is a pineapple bread pudding, but ours is gluten and dairy free. Yours sounds yummy, but my extremely allergic son would boycott me if I made deliciousness he couldn't partake of.

susanmp said...

The best thing about autumn is . . .apples! I love them and all the things they are in, applesauce, apple pie, apple fritters! YUM!

Taryn Kincaid said...

I'm not so crazy about the day getting dark so early, but I love the rest!

Oh, so sorry about your son. Your pineapple bread pudding sounds scrumptious, gluten free or not!

Susan: I agree! I love apples. So much that in Sleepy Hollow Dreams, that was the hero's signature scent!

Laurie -- The leaves ARE gorgeous. But here on the east coast the storms have blown many of them bare!

Veronika -- Thanks for coming by. The heroine of Thunder is named "Veronica"!

BLHmistress said...

The pudding looks so good, I am definitely trying that.

I love the leaves changing and Football!


Taryn Kincaid said...

It's delish! Try it! (Don't mind my terrible photography which makes it look dry. It's custardy and wonderful.)

Anonymous said...

Isabelle Werneck said...

Thanks for the giveaway.

I adore autumn because of the amazing colors, bundling up in sweaters, Halloween and my birthday! Autumn also means cuddling up with a good book and a cup of cocoa!

I love the burst of colors! The fall earth tone colors are very festive and beautiful. I am lucky to live where you can see the seasons change.

I love reading any time so the season doesn’t matter.

Thanks for the opportunity for both of us to meet and to share.

Mer said...

I love fall baking! Pies, autumn squash, all sorts of yumminess. I've never tried corn puddin, but this does sound good. And of course, I must have a book to read while baking, though I've learned from experience that I must set the timer so I don't get lost in a book and look up to find smoke and a charred pie.

Taryn Kincaid said...

Belinda and Mer -- Thanks for stopping by and good luck with the contest. Many's time I've ruined something or other because I couldn't myself away from a book!

Kaci -- Might be with you on the football games, except the Giants are not doing particularly well against the Bengals this week! Hoping for a better half!

Thanks for dropping by, Joy. And you're welcome.

I like fall for the cooler weather, the leaves changing color, and pumpkin pie.

Catherine Lee said...

I love everything about Fall--the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and touch (of the cool air). I especially love that the tourists are gone from my area, the lovely deserted beaches, and "sweater weather." I am the queen of sweater twin sets!

Jo said...

I don't think I have ever had cornbread pudding before - thanks for the recipe. I love autumn's cooler temps, being able to wear a sweater again, and hot apple cider donuts. Thanks for being in the hop!

I love the crispness of Autumn the way it wraps around me!

Liese2 said...

Thanks for the great recipe!
I love the cooler weather and changing colors of the leaves in autumn. Thanks for the chance!

Nay Nay said...

My favorite thing about Autumn/Fall is the changing color of the leaves, orange, yellow, red, even purple. They are so pretty. My least favorite thing is raking up those pretty leaves. LOL I love to curl up by the fire and read a hot romance book on a cold fall evening. Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win. <^_^>

I love cornbread pudding but since I've gone gluten free I haven't tried to make it. I think I'm going to find a gluten free version and try before Thanksgiving. Thanks for being part of the blog hop!
