Book Description

Amazon Top Rated Best Seller

In The Cornbread Bible: A Recipe Storybook, Dr. Jennifer Shambrook not only shares recipes for some great, low-cost, Southern cooking, but also shares the stories behind the recipes. The people who created the recipes and the people for whom the recipes were created populate this recipe storybook.

Dr. Shambrook is a comfortable storyteller and you will find yourself relating these stories as your family or guests eat the down home recipes you prepare from this book. With The Cornbread Bible, you will find it very easy to be a good cook. You will also find these recipes to be very easy on your food budget. Shambrook cooks with an eye to saving time, effort, and expense.

The book offers both recipes and the principles behind the recipes. This enables you to follow step-by-step as you learn the principles, then use these recipes for inspiration to create your own delicious cornbread dishes.

There are also basic general tips such as how to care for cast iron cookware or tell when your oil is hot enough to fry a hushpuppy or corndog.

Included in the book are a variety of breads, including many gluten free options. But you will learn about a lot more than bread! You will learn to make side dishes (greens with cornmeal dumplings), main dishes (pot roast pie), and an easy, delicious recipe for gluten-free corndogs. There are recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

You will enjoy reading the stories behind the recipes as you learn to fry hushpuppies, make the Chihuahua Muffins, or cook hardy cornbread-topped entrees.

One of the best chapters in the book is the section on creating cornbread dressing or stuffing. Here, the author shares her version of an easy-to-follow recipe for dressing that has been passed down in her family for generations. But, she doesn’t stop there, she offers the principles of how to custom tailor your dressing to suit the tastes of your family and friends.

You will find The Cornbread Bible: A Recipe Storybook informative, entertaining and chock full of useful tips that will help you be a better cook while lowering your food budget at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cornbread Like You've Never Seen It Before! January 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to tell you, I have a bone to pick with Jennifer Shambrooke, author of The Cornbread Bible: A Recipe Storybook! She left out my favorite brand of cornmeal!

Very few meals are ever served south of the Mason-Dixon that are not accompanied by cornbread. The ones that are usually feature biscuits. If you're very lucky you'll get both! What you think of as "real" cornbread depends on where you were raised. Some of us were taught that yellow corn was for horses or that only Yankees put flour in their cornbread. Raised in a family where the Southern half was greatly pained by the spoonful of sugar that always topped my grits, even I was shocked enough to yell "Oh My God!" right out loud in the middle of the night when I read Jennifer's recipe for her daughter's Sweet Cornbread! Only for love would any Southern girl put so much sugar in the cornbread . . and I sure hope I didn't wake the neighbors.

Chockful of a lot of things cornbread (not quite everything), the Kindle version of the book features an easy-to-navigate Table of Contents that correctly links every recipe. Yes, there are pictures and you will find some real treats here. The Chihauhua Muffins look particularly scrumptious, corn dogs without the deep fryer - great football-watching food. I think my son-in-law might find a batch of those waiting for his next watching-football day off.

One tiny note: Follow Jennifer's directions for seasoning your cast iron, but you'll need to repeat that at least three times for a good season. The "preseasoned" coating most Lodge cast iron comes with these days is really there only to keep the pan from rusting before you get a chance to do a good job on it. Never mind. If you follow Southern tradition and turn out cornbread frequently your pan will be seasoned in no time!

Great job!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tasty recipes and entertaining stories December 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Cornbread Bible was downloaded for free on my Kindle PC. I enjoyed the book so much, I wanted to leave a review.

This book was a very nice exception to the continuous problem with the formatting of Kindle books. It was well formatted and I only found a few typos (another huge problem with Kindle books).

I really enjoyed the stories that went along with the recipes. They added charm as well as additional ideas for using the recipes. I appreciate that there were alternative ways to make some of the recipes - items that can be added to a recipe to make it a little different than your run-of-the-mill cornbread.

I especially enjoyed the recipe for cornbread stuffing/dressing. I've been making cornbread (other than Jiffy mix) for about 30 years, but I had never figured out how to make a pan of dressing. With this make-a-mix recipe, I can add what I like and leave out the rest. The basic ingredients, broken into proportions, makes it easy to get a good tasting dressing without having to waste ingredients as you try and make your own recipe.

And now I can make some corn dogs, too. I don't eat hot dogs very often, but once or twice a year it's a nice treat. I love corn dogs and now I can just make my own instead of having to depend on the ones from the store with questionable ingredients in them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cornbread Madness - that's a good thing!!! December 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was intrigued by the fact that there is an actual cookbook dedicated to a true southern delicacy - CORNBREAD. It is manna from heaven I tell ya!!! The stories and home-town folksie approach to sharing recipes should make this a fun read for anyone who loves cornbread or just a really good cookbook! For the record - cornbread and pot liquor - don't knock it til you try it - you can thank me later!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cornbread as you've never seen it before. November 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Dr. Jenny Faye is a Renaissance woman, which is good since in that time people didn't tend to wear shoes and having chickens in the yard was au courant. In this wonderful book she captures the lyrical flavor of each cook and recipe tying it all together with her particular lilting twang. In the first few pages I learned more about cornbread that I had in a lifetime of cooking "Southern" A delight to read, a fount of knowledge and comfort food And I'm making the crackling bread first. Very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful! December 4, 2012
The Cornbread Bible is a delight to read.. and if you're a cornbread newbie (or some other sort of non-Southerner), you might learn quite a bit (like how to properly season and care for your cast iron pan)! I love the stories and the recipes, and Jennifer's "voice" takes me back to the days of sitting on a stool in my mother's or grandmother's kitchen, watching her make our cornbread for dinner. LOVE this book!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cornbread heaven February 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The stories and recipes track together, showing how food and family go together. Recipes cut across the spectrum of sweet to savory cornbread based foods...and, in our family there are definitely strong preferences, or definitions, of what cornbread should be...Cornbread is a staple. A fun read with easy recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cornbread Stories February 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Cornbread Bible: A Recipe Storybook is exactly what it's title says. The stories are wonderful folk history. I could relate to some from my growing up and some had me laughing out loud. I have my own way of making cornbread (which, by the way, is similar to a recipe in the book) and I am particular about my cornbread skillet. This is a great read; the recipes look spot-on (although I haven't tried anything new just yet). This is more than your average cook book.
