Cheesy Cornbread Sticks

Corn bread shaped like “corn” sticks or cactus? You bet! Easily made with cast iron pans/molds made by Lodge.Cheddar cheese mixed into the batter makes theseTh  corn sticks even more special.  Perfect for a southwestern themed party or a cowboy themed birthday party. Cheesy Cornbread Sticks are perfect served with chili, stews, soups or baked beans. Cheesy cornbread sticks are also great served plain or with small pats of butter. 

Spur of the Moment Ranch

Not far from where I live there is a super fun and unique ‘ranch’ called “Spur of the Moment Ranch. Spur of the Moment Ranch offers its guests several different themed cabins. Each cabin is different and can accommodate any number of guests. What is so special about Spur of the Moment Ranch is the fact that it’s one of the few “green” facilities around and it’s one of the few places that you are encouraged to bring your horse. Take your horse out on the many trails that wind through the Nicolet National Forest. Cheesy Cornbread Sticks would be perfect to make while enjoying the rustic pioneer life at Spur of the Moment Ranch.

Small Town Friendliness

Many of the towns in Wisconsin were settled over  150 years ago by pioneers of European ancestry. They have gone through logging days when towns were crowded on Saturday nights with lumberjacks. Railroads have come and gone, as have dozens of small family farms. The complexion of the state has changed through time, but one thing that remains constant is its atmosphere of small town friendliness.

The House on the Rock

The House on the Rock is Wisconsin’s #1 privately-owned tourist attraction. Looming atop the 60-foot high Deershelter Rock, it was originally hand-built as a summer home by Alex Jordan. Now a fantastic collection, it includes the original house, a gate house, a mill house with guns, dolls, antique music machines, a nostalgic Street of Yesteryear, a 35-foot doll house, the world’s largest carousel, a 45-foot perpetual motion clock, a 56-foot giant cannon, a roomful of automated one-of-a-kind music machines with life-like characters including “The Mikado,” and more and more. This amazing spectacle is located between Spring Green and Dodgeville WI.
