Skillet Cornbread

I haven't been very inspired to cook much recently, so this recipe is from when I made my mom's baked beans. I've been living off of roasted veggies and take-out. Sometimes I just get into a funk. I NEED to start eating better/healthier though as I keep feeling super sluggish! How do you get out of cooking funks?

This cornbread isn't the absolute best cornbread I've ever eaten, but it is super easy, fast, vegan, made from pantry staples and still freakin' delicious. Also, it is a sweet cornbread. If you omit the honey and add some savory spices and jalapenos I'm sure it would be delicious as well.

Best of all? It only messes up two bowls and a non-stick skillet (which you can just wipe out). Awesome for us lazies I tell you, awesome!

I based my recipe on Peggy's skillet cornbread recipe found here.

PS.  I just found her blog and I LOVE it.  Check it out.  

First you mix wet and dry, separately.  
Then, mix them together and pour into a pre-heated skillet.  

Bake for a short bit (15 min). 
And enjoy!

This looks so easy! And I get in cooking funks all the time--I find that it helps to start with something fun, even if not necessarily healthy, like cookies! Who can't get excited about/inspired by cookies??

Also, I MADE YOUR PRETZEL DOGS and have expressed by obsessive love for them on my blog :D
