A Good Recipe for a Cold Day

Here is another of Nancy's favorite recipes...thought it might be a good one for a cold day like this...comfort food. Leave a Comment if you try it; I'd love to know how it turns out!

Chunk 'O Cheese Bread
13/4 c. water
1/2 c. corn meal
2 t. salt
1/2 c. molasses
1 packet yeast
1/2 c. warm water
4-41/2 c. flour
1 lb. American cheese (I'd substitute cheddar), cut into 1/4 to 1/2 inch cubes
2 T. butter

Combine water, cornmeal and salt in saucepan. Bring to boil, stirring constantly. Cook until slightly thick. Remove from heat; stir in molasses and butter; cool 'til lukewarm. Soften yeast in warm water in large bowl. Blend in cornmeal mixture. Gradually add flour to form dough. Knead until smooth...about 5 minutes. Place in greased bowl and let rise until doubled in size...about 1 to 1-1/2 hours. Line two 8" or 9" loaf  pans with foil and grease well. Place dough on surface sprinkled with cornmeal. Work cheese into dough. Divide into two parts. Shape into oval loaves, covering cheese cubes. Place in pans and let rise until double in size, about 1 hour. Bake at 350 degrees about 40-55 minutes. Enjoy!

Hi there, I just stopped by to say hello and so glad I did-you see I lost my older(and only)sister to Ovarian cancer 5 yrs ago after she battled 8 years with it. I still miss her as I'm sure you do and this is a wonderful way to honor your sister. I'll be following you and can't wait to learn more about her life.
Hugs, Noreen

Cheryl, I came by to thank you for visiting me and when I read the reason for this blog, I was deeply touched. What a wonderful way to keep your sister's spirit alive. I am so very sorry for your loss. I am sure your sweet sister would be so proud of you though in this beautiful way to honor her life!

Hugs to you,

I like your blog and will follow because I too lost someone special to ovarian cancer just this year and my mother 13 years ago. My friend, Christine lost her battle on Feb 8/10 after 2 1/2 years. I can't imagine losing a sister and I understand your loss. Your blog is very heart-warming. Hugs, Deb=^..^=x5
