Personal Notes:
I had heard of "corn pone" as a child, and associated it with the rural American south. But what it actually was remained a mystery to me until I came across this recipe in a vegetarian cookbook. I tried it, and I found it to be really yummy. Maybe y'all will like it, too! (I think this dish is especially nice served with a side of fresh
tomatoes and green salad or cooked greens, either
one with a vinaigrette or lemon dressing.)
