This is a fun, easy, CORN-y recipe that I made up for this week’s BSI (Blogger Secret Ingredient)… I’m trying to use up some orange juice that’s in the fridge, so I incorporated that as well. It adds a really subtle sweetness that is mandatory for all good cornbread. And the bitelettes are just too cute.
Corn Bitelettes with a Hint of Orange
Ingredients (makes 27 bites)
- 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 egg whites
- 3/4 cups orange juice
- 1/2 cup corn meal
- 1/2 cup wheat bran (or flour)
- 1/4 cup oat bran (or flour)
- 1.5 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup frozen corn kernels
- Preheat the oven to 425F.
- Mix together the wet ingredients (olive oil, egg whites, OJ). Mix together the dry ingredients (corn meal, wheat bran, oat bran, baking powder, salt). Mix them together. Add the corn! and mix well.

This recipe for apple pie is a far cry from the buttery, sugary goodness that my Grammie serves up each year at Thanksgiving… but it’s different in a good way! Bobby and I both loved the flavors and textures of this unsweetened-yet-strangely-traditional apple pie. I hope you try it out, because it’s really delicious.
The inspiration comes from Meg’s blog – she recently posted this recipe for apple pie. I made a smaller and slightly different version.

The Blogger Secret Ingredient for this week was kabocha (Japanese pumpkin) and I had some wonderful entries:
I asked Bobby to help me pick the winner, and this week’s winner is…
Michelle, with Oven-Roasted Fusion Kabocha! (My mom actually commented that this looked amazing and incredibly gourmet – she reads the blog.) Go make her recipe!
Thank you so much for all of the creative entries. I’m passing on the BSI to the only person that might love kabocha more than me (well, I’m pretty sure she loves it at least as much): Sophia @ Burp and Slurp~. Check in on her blog for the next Blogger Secret Ingredient announcement!
