Buttermilk Skillet Cornbread

As a grandchild of the south, I have been in awe of my Mommom’s skillet cornbread ever since I can remember. Watching her golden creation fall out of her skillet with ease and onto the butcher block was nothing short of magical to this little foodie in training. I have to thank her for teaching me that if the cornbread does happen to crack and crumble, it can still taste even better than the perfect one before it. I still giggle at the irony of the cornbread for our Thanksgiving stuffing turning out absolutely perfect year after year only to be intentionally crumbled to pieces minutes later.

I made buttermilk skillet cornbread in the cast iron skillet that Mommom gave me for my birthday last year in celebration of her special day today. We’ll toast a slice of cornbread in her honor as I thank her for never letting me forget that, although I may crack and crumble at times, I’ll always be perfect in her eyes. Happy Birthday, Mommom! I love you and appreciate your many years of wisdom and love.

Your kitchen hoods can be exposed to numerous dirt issues as a result of continuous cooking. As time passes, they can become clogged with grease. However, you cannot just get any degreasing product and clean the kitchen hoods on your own. You might damage the kitchen ductwork, which will result in additional costs for repairs in the long haul. Also, chances are you do not know where to begin or even how to clean kitchen goods.
