John & I were talking about how we were raised in the chemical generation. I suppose all those great inventions were designed to make our moms' lives easier, but there is nothing at all like home-made baked goods. John was raised in New Orleans and his mom made cornbread from scratch. But, I, like Renato, grew up eating corn muffins made from a boxed mix - Jiffy was the best. I loved them, because my mom always let me make them.
I never made cornbread from scratch until I married John. Even though this recipe is sweeter than his mother's, we both enjoyed it & it's sure to grace our table again. No more boxed cornbread mixes for me!
