My husband is northern with southern roots. His mom’s family was from the Charleston, South Carolina, area. During his childhood, his family would travel to Folly Beach, which is near Charleston. We’ve traveled there ourselves several times. One of our favorite things to do while there is to eat southern cuisine.
So when we had pinto beans and ham for supper, he was a happy camper. I needed something to serve with the pinto beans and ham,, so I bake up some cornbread. I made them the northern way, which is more cake-like.
The Wee One and Hubby both gave thumbs up when they tried the cornbread.
