If I was told that I could only have one food for the rest of my life it would be a serious toss up between beans and cornbread. I am a huge fan of cornbread, who isn't right? I had to re-work and dig for amazing new recipes when I discovered I was Celiac and had to 100% commit to a gluten free diet for life. So, along with that came a new recipe for cornbread given to me by my Mom who makes this for my Dad who also is a Celiac. I love it. My friends who come over to eat love it. My kids love it. It is a recipe I now make for my family all the time and I hope it is a recipe that my children will one day make for their kids too. It is an easy to make, delicious-must-try.
