Usually I only crave certain foods during their respective seasons. Once again my mother handed me a recipe that she was just itching to make and you know you can’t tell momma NO. It was this cornbread recipe that she found in a magazine.
Instantly you think of the fall or winter time! Serving hot cornbread with some hot and steamy soup. Well, unfortunately its 95 degrees outside in Texas and the only way its going to get cold anytime soon is if we turn the AC below 60.
Shaun would have wanted me to hold off on making cornbread until we made some soup. However, when a pregnant lady wants or craves something you just kind of let her have her way or so I seem to think that way. Nothing is better than hot fresh bread out of the oven with butter. I would have an extra hot roll over dessert any day!
