She, Crescent Dragonwagon, that is, came to understand, cornbread “not only is hot, just baked cornbread delicious, it evokes ~ powerfully ~ the heart, soul, and taste of home.”
Amen! CORNBREAD, I love cornbread!
After making this cornbread, I know why it was the single most requested recipe at the Dairy Hollow House in Eureka Springs, Arkansas!
I’ve tried what seems like a ton of cornbread recipes and I’ve made more than one from this great cookbook by Crescent Dragonwagon. I’m just trying to figure out what took me so darn long to make this one!
Crescent Dragonwagon is her real name ~ read here ~ or buy her great cookbook, if you want to know more about it.
Dragonwagon’s cookbook, The Cornbread Gospels, is a surprising eccentric read, filled with curious antidotes and tales along the cornbread trail from the Appalachians to the Rockies to the Green Mountains. I was hooked from the beginning to the end ~ this is just not a recipe book to take up space on your kitchen counter, it’s at home in any room.
Thank you, Crescent Dragonwagon for the great recipe, great cookbook!
This cornbread is the créme de la créme of cornbread!
