Family Favorites


If you like a sweet, moist, buttery corn bread, this is it. So quick and easy to whip up, it rounds out an evening meal beautifully. Serve simply with butter and honey or one of my flavored butters.

Wonderful with soups, stews or chili or grilled chicken in the summer.

Never dry... always just right.This has been part of our evening meals for over 25 years. Enjoy!
