This recipe is my three sons' favorite side dish.  They give it a 5 star rating!  It will be served at our Christmas dinner.  This is sooo much better than corn pudding!

1 box Jiffy corn muffin mix
1 can whole kernel corn (drained)
1 can cream style corn
1 - 8 oz sour cream
1 stick of butter melted
2 eggs
1 TBSP sugar
1/2 tsp. garlic pepper
1 jalapeno pepper chopped (you can use less if you don't want that much heat) or you can use a small amt. of red pepper flakes.  We prefer the jalapeno.

Mix all ingredients together.  Pour into a 9 X 13 greased pan.  Bake at 400 for 40-45 minutes.  Cut into squares to serve.

$100.00 Chocolate Cake

Here's a recipe from my mother-in-law, Mary Marinaro Sloan.  She made this recipe MANY times for the Elkhorn City United Methodist Church events and her family.  It's still one of our favorites here on the farm.  *It pairs perfectly with our Blackberry Wine:)

Cake Ingredients:
2 C. flour
2 C. Sugar
1 C. Water
1/2 C. oil
1 stick of butter
4 TBSP Cocoa
1/2 C. Buttermilk
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

1 stick butter
4 TBSP milk
4 TBSP cocoa
1 TBSP Vanilla
1 box confectioner's sugar

Stir flour and sugar in mixing bowl.  Mix water, oil, butter, and cocoa in a saucepan.  Boil 3 minutes, stirring constantly.  Pour over flour mixture.  Mix buttermilk, eggs, baking soda, and salt together, then pour into mixture.  Mix well and pour into floured 9 X 13 pan.  Make in 350 degree oven for 40 minutes.
ICING:  Mix butter, milk, cocoa, and vanilla in saucepan and bring to a boil.  Add conf. sugar until it's a spreading consistency.

Holiday Cheeseball and Chambourcin Wine

     This is one of our family's favorites, and it's so easy to make!  Serve it with your favorite cracker.  It pairs perfectly with any of our dry reds, especially the Chambourcin.  Hope you enjoy it too!

* 1pkg of pecan pieces.  I used the pkg that was 1 1/2 cups
Toast pecan pieces in the oven.  I usually put them in a preheated oven set at 350 degrees for about 5-6 minutes.  Be careful...you do not want to burn them.  Let them cool while you mix the cheeses.

*Soften one 8 oz. cream cheese (bring to room temp)
*Shred 1 lb. sharp cheddar cheese
  Mix these two together
*Add 2 TBSP Worcestershire Sauce
      & 1/4 tsp. onion powder
   Stir until well mixed
**I use my hands to form two balls from the mixture.  However, you can make smaller balls and get 4. (They do make a nice hostess gift!)  Roll the balls in the pecan pieces, and refrigerate until ready to use.  I cover mine in plastic wrap to keep it fresh.
