I love to cook and have thought about submitting some of my recipes for a long time. My supportive and encouraging mom finally convinced me to stop thinking about it...and do it! I often serve this corn bread with chili.

"This is a gread recipe. I have used it (minus the bacon drippings, and I use the exact amount of finely chopped green pepper instead of the onion) many times. I got the recipe from a Taste of Home magazine a couple of years ago and I love it. It goes great with beans or something that does not have a very strong flavor because this bread certainly does."

"I love this recipe! I sometimes include some chopped green chilies, but most of the time I make it just the way the recipe states."
