HONORING A SOUL FOOD STAPLE: CORNBREAD

This month at BAM we’re honoring the Soul food staple, Cornbread, and we would love to taste your take on it. We are asking families to bring their own version of cornbread to share with the BAM community to Black History Night. We will be posting new and exciting takes on cornbread each week, so don't fret if you don't have a go-to recipe. And remember when in doubt, a box of Jiffy will do the trick!
