  I was wondering if you have a copycat of the Rosemary Cornbread served 
  at the House of Blues restaurants.  I know that it has red and yellow 
  peppers in it in addition to the rosemary.


Hi Kathy,

I found two copycat recipes. See below.


  House of Blues Rosemary Cornbread

  3 oz. frozen corn
  1 T. roughly chopped fresh rosemary leaves (no stems)
  1 c. heavy cream
  1 package corn muffin mix
  1/4 c. finely diced red pepper
  2 eggs
  1 T. minced shallot or green

  Spray 13x9 or 11x9"cake pan with non-stick oil and coat with 
  granulated sugar. In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and mix 
  thoroughly. Pour mixture into cake pan and bake in a preheated oven 
  for 30 minutes at 300F. Raise temperature to 325F and bake an 
  additional 20 minutes.

Lamb Seasoning

  On the brand of seasoning or recipe used by Outback Steakhouse on the 
  rack of lamb. Not the cabernet sauce, but the actual seasoning or spices 
  used on the lamb?
  Any ideas?



Hello Ken,

My guess is that it's Schwartz Lamb Seasoning. Just a guess, though.

Below is a recipe for homemade lamb seasoning. Can't say that it's the same as Outback's, though.


  Lamb Seasoning:

  1 tbsp. sweet paprika
  2-1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  1/2 tsp. white pepper
  1/2 tsp. black pepper
  1/2 tsp. dried thyme
  1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  1/4 tsp. dried rosemary, crushed

Mix and store in a airtight container in a cool place.

Lamb Seasoning like Outback

1 1/2tsp  kosher or sea salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Powdered garlic
1/4 tsp Powdered onion
1/4 tsp Cayenne
1/4 tsp dried thyme 
1/4 tsp dried rosemary
1/4 tsp dried basil 
1/4 tsp Dried Marjoram
1/4 tsp dried oregano

Mix in a small bowl. Sprinkle each rack with the seasoning blend
before cooking.

  We saw these 2 to 3 inch cones at a big flea market displayed in 
  rustic tinware containers for decorative purposes.  The looked like 
  they had been poured into a wood sugar mold.  Would love to know how 
  to make.  Do you have a recipe or any suggestions? 

  Boulder, CO

Hello Jewell,

Well, if we are reading from the same sheet of music, these are "piloncillo". They're little cones of brown sugar made by pouring liquid raw sugar into sugar molds. They aren't the sort of thing you can make at home. They're common in Mexico and Central & South America. You might find them in a Mexican grocery in Boulder or Denver. Or, on your next vacation go down across the border and you can pick up all you want.
