Mmmmm.... If you want to take a simple weeknight meal and turn it into something magical use honey butter. Last night I made my easy chili and some cornbread. I also decided to whip (ha- literally) up some honey butter. It made the cornbread magical. And I ate way too much as a result. But I don't regret it at all. For those of you who have seen the film "Julie & Julia" I thought of it last night as I was applying my heavenly glob of butter. For those of you who haven't seen that film - you need to. Immediately! Also Julie loosely states that butter makes everything delicious. You can't have too much butter. Want to know how to make honey butter? It's so simple.
2 sticks unsalted butter and 4-6 Tablespoons of honey (to taste)
Whip together while butter is soft. Serve when done.
Butter Tip: If you butter just came out of the fridge you can still use it! Microwave it on a plate for 45 seconds at 20% power. Flip half way through the warming. Add 30 second intervals if it is still too cold. I do this all the time for baking at my bakery.
