Meyer Lemon Blueberry Cornbread

Today we are discussing this beautiful Sweet Meyer Lemon Wild Blueberry Cornbread! YAY! But before that, let’s talk about me. :/

I’m currently doing two things that are very topical: staring at the new Marie Kondo-ing (yes, her name is a verb now) my entire kitchen. Or at least trying to. I realize that trying to get a totally aesthetically and pleasing organizational space requires a bit of an investment in buying matching containers, dividers, mini shelves, etc. I’m hoping it pays off in the end. At the end of the year last year, I was terrified to open my drawers because after cooking day in and day out for 3 months straight, things had gotten a little disorderly.

Ginger Shrimp Stir-Fry with Garlic Bok Choy

Before the holidays, I ate SO many cookies. Too many cookies. I was feeling a bit sluggish and vowed to eat super healthy at the beginning of the year. Basically, like everyone else in the world lol.

When I returned this Ginger Shrimp Stir-Fry with Garlic Bok Choy was in order!

Most of the time—especially during the week—I want something FAST.This dish is it! It comes together in literally under an hour. The cooking takes about 30 minutes. It’s from A Common Table: 80 Recipes and Stories from My Shared Cultures. I cannot tell you how much I love this book. There are tons of recipes I want to try. This one popped out at me because it was something I could see myself making over and over and over.

I love dishes like that!
