"...rose before sunrise, always wrote or read until seven in summer or half past seven in the winter. His breakfast was then ready–he ate three small mush cakes swimming in butter and honey, and drank three cups of tea without cream."
This recipe for corn meal cakes modernizes our first President's routine breakfast. This recipe includes yeast, but the entire rising process takes place in the refrigerator so it's easy enough for a beginner to try. The cakes are satisfyingly filling thanks to the bone broth and the gluten-free corn meal. They have a pleasant crunchy texture and their flavor is complimented by a generous topping of butter and honey.
Perfect your President's Day with these historical breakfast treats.

Do yourself a favor; stock up on frozen homemade chili! This recipe generously serves 6, if you double the recipe you are guaranteed to have enough to freeze for a rainy day.
Freeze leftovers in 1-quart portions. Pull the chili the day before reheating. Alternatively, pull the chili directly from the freezer and run hot tap water over your container to release it. Pop the chili into a heavy bottomed pot, and reheat slowly, flipping every 15 minutes or so, for 45 minutes to an hour. Make sure to pick up cherry tomatoes for your reheated chili- their fresh flavor elevates this meal!
For those who have milder tastebuds, eliminate some heat by removing the seeds and white pith from the chilis. You may also omit the jalapeno pepper, but make sure to include the poblanos in adobo - the source of the chili's deeply intoxicating flavor.
