I was thinking when I saw ‘Grandmother’s Buttermilk Cornbread’ that it was Graces’ so I looked at the recipe and was perplexed until I saw it was from someone named Bethany. Being perplexed came from the fact that it is ‘sweet’ cornbread and I know that my Grandma (Maude) or Grandpa (Jim) for that matter, never made sweet cornbread. 🙂 I’m still thankful for Though The Eyes of Grace, because it afforded me a view of a young Maude that I never knew. 🙂 🙂
I wish I had all of their recipes! But the ones I do have I’ll be sure to add them here. Do you have any of your family recipes?
