Allow me to introduce you to one of my long-time favorite Fall foods, courtesy of my amazing momma: broccoli cheese cornbread. One word… amazing! It’s the perfect accompaniment to a big bowl full of homemade chili & is perfect on crisp autumn evenings. This cornbread recipe is simple to make & so cheesy and delicious. Trust me on this one; it’s an annual favorite of mine! I baked a pan of this scrumptious, warm cornbread for my friends this past weekend, and it was devoured quickly!
