That Buttery, Crunchy, Cast Iron Skillet Crust is My Favorite Part
Congratulations to Kristin of Going Country (where "city girl+country boy=one bizarre life") who is the random winner of a signed copy of The Cornbread Gospels by Crescent Dragonwagon! In her comment she said, I can't control myself around cornbread. Especially warm with butter and honey. Yum. I'm the same way. This book is probably a little dangerous for both of us.
A big thanks to everybody for entering and sharing your cornbread recipes, stories, and memories. I always feel like I'm the real winner when I hold a giveaway because I get to read all these heartwarming, hysterical, and just plain wonderful comments.
Stay tuned because I have several more great books to give away. In the meantime, if you love (or think you might love) homemade cornbread, then The Cornbread Gospels is for you. Besides containing over 200 scrumptious cornbread and goes-with-cornbread recipes, it's packed with all sorts of fun cornbread facts and stories—and is a bargain at just $10.17 from amazon.com. The cast iron skillet is optional but highly recommended. They're one of the best kitchen buys on the planet because they last forever and only get better with age—and besides, just look at that crust.
And now if you'll excuse me, I think I hear that one last hunk of cornbread in the kitchen loudly calling my name.
