Strawberry Mint Corn Bread

A few weeks ago I shared this delicious recipe over at Katherine Martinelli’s lovely blog!  If you have not stopped by her site, you are truly missing out!  She shares some wonderful recipes, and her photography is beyond beautiful!

Corn bread is a weakness for me, but I don’t eat it enough for sure.  My hubby is weird, and doesn’t like corn bread-corn flour-corn cake…….you get the picture.  When I made this recipe, I wanted to add in anything you can find at a farmers market.  So this recipe is truly versatile, have fun and make it your own.  Now that blueberries are coming in season…..OR wait….blackberries…..either would be fantastic in the recipe!

I don’t know if you knew that I contribute over at Queen City Exclusive?  I love their site, it is fun AND elegant!  Queen  City Exclusive is a website, and they publish a magazine every couple months.  It is truly an honor to contribute with them!  SOOOOoooo, that is why I am excited to announce that QC is up for a Best Neighborhood Blog web award, WOO HOO!!!!

I would love love if you could give them a vote, they SO deserve to win!  Here is the link to vote! Thank you so much!
