Homemade Honey Butter

Homemade Honey Butter

I ask you this, what is better than hot fresh cornbread or hot rolls right out of the oven? Hot fresh cornbread or hot rolls topped with homemade honey butter! I am not sure I have ever met anyone that doesn’t like honey butter. I actually have a honey butter crazed brother-in-law. He loves the stuff. He used to live in Utah where they had this bottled “honey butter”. I remember about 10-11 years ago we were visiting my mother-in-law in New Jersey and my Brother-in-law took my father-in-law on a wild goose chase to find this bottled “honey butter”. They had to have gone to every grocery store in a 20 mile radius and struck out everywhere. The only places you can get it is you have to live in Utah, or buy it from the internet. Now here is the twist, this bottled “honey butter”, has no honey in it nor does it have any butter in it. It has about 20 ingredients mainly soybean oil, corn syrup and other unpronounceable ingredients.

I always thought that I could make a better honey butter, but in the past we have tried a few different recipes for homemade honey butter and none of them worked very well, or had a good consistency. Then I found this recipe. What set it apart from the others was the addition marshmallow fluff. I know you will say that store bought marshmallow fluff has crap in it too, but you can make your own homemade marshmallow fluff and have it on hand for just such purposes, and in the famous words of Alton Brown, “Thats another post”. The fluff gives the honey butter a nice consistency and tames down the honey flavor just a tad. Its a wonderful addition to an old favorite. It has also gotten the two thumbs up approval of my brother-in-law, so it must be really good. I think you will love it.

High Desert Pizza’s Famous Focaccia Sandwich

Focaccia Sandwich

I orginially posted this recipe back in 2009, soon after I started this blog. I always thought it had the worst photo. We recently made it again, it was super tasty as usual, so I decided to take some better photos. What do you think? Here is the original if you want to see it. Its a really sad picture. I also use a different formula for the focaccia but the original recipe will work fine.

Maybe its not really a famous focaccia sandwich, but I am going to make it that way. This is the sandwich dreams are made of. I remember when my wife and I were dating when she would visit me at the pizza place where I worked: High Desert Pizza in Ivins Utah. She would come and I would treat her to this tasty focaccia sandwich. We both fell in love at first bite. It took me a little while to remember all the toppings but ultimately I did. I must say thank heavens for that.

Now you have to start off with the Focaccia Bread from this post. Some very tasty bread. We like it fresh out of the oven, but 1-2 day old is fine as well. This is a hot sandwich so it doesn’t matter.

Disneyland Shirt Vector Designs

We will soon be going on a trip to Disneyland. We thought it would be fun to have homemade t-shirts to commemorate the occasion. Being the designer I am I decided to design the shirts myself. I scoured Pinterest and the net for fun Ideas. I found an idea on Grey Luster Girl and absolutely loved the Old Disneyland Sign idea. One thing was that she didn’t have anything someone could download and use so I made one and this is the result for one of the shirts.

Pretty sweet I think. I also found found some shirts with the Mickey and Minnie heads with half of them being heir pants. I thought that was pretty cool. Although a lot of those were Etsy shops, so I decided to make some myself.
