WE HAD a lot of family get-togethers when I was growing up.
My grandmother, aunts and mom were all good cooks, and each had her own specialty when it came to bread. But Mom's was my favorite - she started making it 40 years ago. The flavors call to mind the taste of corn bread stuffing!

Mother's corn bread is a special treat she made often while I was growing up and still makes today. My grandmother came up with this recipe years ago. True to tradition, I serve it frequently to my own family.
This homeade corn bread sent in by Angela Oelschlaeger is dressed up with green onion, cheddar cheese and jalapeno pepper. It takes just minutes to bake. "Serve it warm with honey," suggests the Tonganoxie, Kansas cook.
Looking for a moist bread to dunk in a bowl of chowder or chili? Try this tasty recipe. It’s one of Isaiah’s favorites, Silvana says. “He could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner.” —Silvana Nardone, New York, New York
