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!
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.
What a treasure this book is. Not only is it a recipe book for the best loved cornbread recipes but it's also a story book about the origins and other tales about the food.
Love the differences between even the utensils used and the recipes are so easy to make.
Had just had 2 cornbread muffins at the hospital last week and know I need to make some for these cold winter days we are having.
The recipe with broccoli would be just perfect for a meal.
Some of the recipes use Jiffy as a starter.
