Canyon Ranch Spa Style Cornbread

Here it is y’all, a perfect crumbly goodness of cornbread brought to you by Canyon Ranch. I hope you enjoy this as much as I have!

Ingredients
  • 5 tablespoons cane sugar
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup fat-free milk
  • ½ cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
 
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 325F. Lightly coat a 9-inch square baking pan with canola oil spray.
  2. In a large bowl combine all ingredients and mix until just combined.
  3. Pour batter into baking pan. Bake for 35 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean when inserted in the middle.
  4. Remove from oven and let cool. Cut into 24 pieces.
 
NOTES 
Honestly, 24 cubes out of a 9 inch pan was a bit small for our tastes. We made larger squares because the calorie count was still less than a full sized corn muffin, but you could also add a dollop of batter to 12 mini muffin wells (either 1 or 2 batches) to make small pieces for portion control. All things in moderation — including moderation.

Canyon Ranch 1000 Island Dressing

 Traditionally I would post a food or drink recipe, however. Today I think it is important to focus on condiment. I mean you can make all the recipes in the world, but without that BAM! factor of a glaze or dressing it just wouldn’t be the same. Thank you Canyon Ranch!

1000-Island

 

“Thousand Island dressing is versatile in any number of ways:  Use it as a dip for raw vegetables, as a salad dressing, or spread it on sandwiches or burgers. With our low-calorie version you can enjoy it often, but be careful with commercial varieties. Some of them pack in a whopping 120 calories for 2 tablespoons For a dairy-free rendition, omit the yogurt and double the amount of fat-free mayonnaise.”

 

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup non-fat plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup fat-free mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground
  • black pepper
  • fresh lemon juice to taste
Directions
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  2. It will keep, tightly covered, in the refrigerator for 1 week.
