Recipe: Z’Tejas Cornbread Copycat

Just 3 ingredients and you're left with restaurant style cornbread. Honestly it couldn't be easier or yummier!
  Z'Tejas was one of those restaurants the musicmaker and I went to A LOT when we were dating and first married. It was yummy and their complimentary cornbread is SO good. Unfortunately they seem to continually change their menu and after finding new favorites to only find them off the menu next time we showed up the restaurant got retired from our rotation. Luckily a friend shared this great recipe that tastes like a Z'Tejas cornbread copycat to me.       Ingredients
  • one egg
  • one box of jiffy muffin mix
  • one can of creamed corn
Put into a pie pan (or whatever type of baking dish you prefer) and bake at 400 F for about 20-30 minutes or until browned on top and toothpick comes away clean. So yummy and so easy. Also if you're adventurous it looks like Z'Tejas actually has a cornbread recipe on their website but it is definitely more involved and has more ingredients. You also might like:

DIY Elsa and Anna Sister Shirts with Cricut

I'm pretty obsessed with these DIY Frozen Elsa and Anna sister shirts. No surprise since it's the perfect wearable costume. DIY Frozen Sister Elsa and Anna shirt tutorial My sister gave the girls a trip to Disneyland for Christmas and the one thing she wanted for their trip were Elsa and Anna shirts. Sure I could have just grabbed some blank shirts and vinyl-ized them but I can't resist a good costume-y project so I tried to make versions of shirts that had elements of the characters' outfits.

Frozen Elsa and Anna Shirt Tutorials

I was so giddy about how these turned out plus I love how they can wear these to school. Their trip was back in February  but I've got both of the girls wearing these multiple times since and you know there isn't a better compliment you can give someone who makes you clothes than wearing them alot :).

What You Need

i'm-her-elsa-anna-downloada

What to do
  1. Sew the shirts according to the pattern directions. I opted for hemming the Anna sleeve and bottom hems with the my favorite method instead of the bands but that's a personal preference and doesn't really change the look.
  2. For Elsa when adding the sleeve band instead of folding the band piece in half and sewing, fold it in half, cut it and then fold in half to find the center (for the finger loop) cut it at an angle. Cut a small piece of elastic and pin it between the two layers of the cuff. Then resew the angled side. Sew the short edges together and now you can add the cuff like normal.
  3. Use the free design and cut out vinyl with the Cricut. And iron onto the shirts.If you don't already know how to use iron-on vinyl see this post.
  4. For Anna, use gold thread and sew a decorative stitch across the sleeve seams.
  5. For Elsa hand sew the sequins along the top.

You don't have to do the detailing if you don't have fun stitches on your sewing machine but I absolutely adore how it turned out with the gold metallic thread.

Frozen Elsa Shirt Tutorial

This was one of my first times sewing sequins and it was pretty easy I just kind of took stitches and tied knots every 3-4 pieces since if one stitch pops I don't want ALL the pieces falling off.

DIY Elsa and Anna Frozen shirts

I just love how these are regular shirts but how the hood totally is a nod to Anna's cape and the sequins is like all of Elsa's sparkles!
