Pairs Well With
For our family, corn bread is a comfort food enjoyed most in the colder seasons of the year. We often pair it with a hot soup or homemade chili or simply slathered with a nice salty butter. We do our best to have good gluten free choices for our family since some members have gluten sensitivities.
