I debated about posting this honey butter recipe. Well, it is just honey butter and only has four ingredients. But this blog is all about favorites and this is hands down my favorite honey butter that I have ever tasted. I love it. Give me some warm, homemade rolls and I can’t get enough of it. It is devoured at every family reunion and brings back such sweet memories for me of my Grandma. This recipe was handed down to me by my Grandma Holman who lives in Rexburg, Idaho. I can’t remember even one visit without the comfort of this sweet treat. So whip up some of this tasty honey butter next time you make rolls and imagine the warm wind blowing your hair with each bite, as you peacefully rock on Grandma’s wooden swing.

I have been working on a personal cookbook for my family of our absolute FAVORITE recipes and I am happy to say that I am DONE! I posted all about it on Melandboys here.   I love the way it turned out but let me tell you it was a bit challenging to put together, since as you know I have collected a lot of recipes over the years:)  I had to sort through all of my posts and my old cookbook  binder that is stuffed with recipes and falling apart!  I wanted to find the best of the best to put in our family cookbook. So, I now have a list of recipes that we love that somehow were never posted here on The Sisters Café.  The first one I am excited to share with you is this Buttermilk Cornbread that is somewhat of a staple at our house, especially during ‘soup season’.  I am telling you–IT IS THE BEST CORNBREAD ever, hands down!  It comes together fast and with ingredients that I keep on hand.  I know that some of you do not keep buttermilk as a staple, but seriously you should!  It makes the best waffles, muffins, rolls, biscuits, cake and I could go on (just look here in the buttermilk section of our Recipe Index)!  We have this cornbread often and I even make a batch for my son Coleman (who has Celiac disease) by subbing out the flour for a gluten free blend.  It is especially good slathered with Grandma’s Honey Butter.

      I thought I would share some Sisters Café favorites to help with your planning!

      You can’t go wrong with either of these two recipes for your turkey:  Rosemary and Garlic Roasted OR my favorite the  Brined Roast  Turkey 

      Favorite sides: Wonderful Mashed Potatoes (they really are the BEST),  Celebration Salad ( super easy and perfect for a crowd),  Green Beans with Walnuts and Nutmeg, lots more vegetable side dish ideas here

      Rolls: Buttermilk Rolls are my favorite (this is a post on how to shape them with links to the recipe and our roll section if you want to try a different roll recipe–we have lots of good ones!)

      Flavored Butters:  I love making Grandma’s honey butter and Raspberry butter to offer with my rolls on Thanksgiving.

      Desserts:  We have TONS of fabulous Pies here.  I am making a classic apple pie, the Banofee (caramel banana) and this heavenly Pumpkin Trifle this year.
