    our fav cornbread is pretty traditional; a mixture of flour and cornmeal and we like a touch of sugar added. hubby especially likes for me to make it into corn sticks. Love, love, love cast iron. I have one of my mother’s along with a whole drawer of different sizes. Made a wonderful chicken breast in one the other day. Sauteed some mushrooms, garlic and shallots; then added boneless breasts and thighs sprinkled w/salt pepper and dried tarragon. added a bit of brandy at the end. Wonderful!
