Cornbread is the American bread. The ...
Cornbread is the American bread. The by-the-people-for-the-people bread. So it should be put forth to the people with humor. And a whole lot of butter.
The Cornbread Book does just that with recipes for cornbreads, fritters, hush puppies, and biscuits. Cornbreads of the sweet persuasion appear, too, from biscotti to pound cake. And there are yeast breads such as Anadama Batter Bread and Cornmeal Pizza Dough. Don't forget timeless favorites like spoonbread, buttermilk cornbread, and popovers. Not to mention Gospel Buns, Sweet Potato Cupcakes, and Honey Snail (which doesn't come within ten miles of an actual snail).
Cornbread doesn't even have to be made with cornmeal. Hominy-Leek Monkey Bread has riced hominy. And Jeremy is as proud as a peacock to have come up with three yeast breads made with flour he milled from popped popcorn (Popcorn White Loaf, Popcorn Pita Bread, and Popcorn Focaccia). In the unlikely event you have any leftover cornbread, Jeremy has recipes for cornbread salad, croutons, and dressing.
And if you ever meet Jeremy, he might just sing you "The Cornbread Song" . . .

I purchased this for my daughter who will be attending college soon. However, it seemed that most of the best recipes require the use of a regular oven or range. This is usually not an option for incoming freshman, who might only have a microwave oven and maybe a blender. There were a few recipes that didn't require any cooking at all. So if the student has a small refrigerator, they could stock the ingredients for these recipes. In my opinion this book for for the older college student or college graduate living in an apartment complex (that furnishes a regular stove).Was this review helpful?

My kids and I like to bake together most weekends, and this book is chock-a-block with great recipes that the whole family can enjoy. We've had success with a couple of the recipes already (there was nary a crumb left over) and are anxious to try more! This is the type of cookbook one can curl up with and read for the sheer pleasure of it: it's funny, it's charming, it's informative. I can't wait to see what this author has in store next.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
