  • I still love corn bread after all these years and this is one that my grandmother actually taught me how to make when I was younger. So, I will never forget preparing corn bread here with here years back and just the thought of it makes me happy to have such great memories with her. So, would love to try your version now, too Carrie 😉

    • Isn’t it remarkable the memories that food brings and the bond of cooking together breaches the generations! What a wonderful grandmother,a d I’m sure you will pass that on to your girls. Thank you for sharing with us.

  • Carrie,

    I flip over cornbread. I normally make mine in my cast iron skillet that my husband’s grandma left me. It is over 100 years old. I have made all sorts of cornbread and the problems is I eat most of it before it hits the table. Seriously, I could eat the entire skillet full. I have never made it in my dutch oven inside or outside. You make it look so easy. One day, I am going to have to try it.
    Many blessings,

  • Mmmmm…love cornbread! Recipe look yummy and great tutorial! Have a wonderful long weekend! Diane
