Delish Heather! I may have missed this, but how do you make your lemon cream cheese? Thank you!

I haven’t posted the recipe – it’s a recipe from a cookbook I’m reviewing, and I hope to post the review tomorrow. My version of the lemon cream cheese spread was super easy – 8 ounces of softened cream cheese + zest of one lemon + vanilla stevia drops (I used about 6 drops). 🙂

Thanks! Blueberry Goat Yogurt Cornbread…maybe with chocolate-chips 🙂

Is there anything to sub for the Sour Cream? I don’t usually have that.

Also – I noticed there are different “grades”(?) to buying cornmeal – a fine, medium, etc. (I think – or am I totally mistaking it I wonder!)…not sure. I know I wasn’t a big fan of it before because of the grittiness so maybe a finer texture would work better?

Yogurt should work in place of the sour cream – any type, and yes, there is regular cornmeal and stone ground. Stone ground is more gritty. So, if I were you, I’d buy the regular cornmeal or try corn flour for a finer texture.

Do you think plain yogurt would work in place of sour cream?


HEAB June 7, 2011 at 1:25 pm

Yep. 🙂

Heather this looks amazing, but I can’t do sour cream…any idea what to sub for that???


HEAB June 7, 2011 at 1:25 pm

Do you do yogurt? Any type of yogurt should work or coconut cream (the cream skimmed off the top of a can of coconut).

Ooh, this sounds amazing. Lemon and blueberry is such a perfect combo and definitely perfect for summer time! I can not find cornmeal at the store we shop at, I’ve been dying to try your cornbread recipes for a long time now!
