Country Cornbead with a Black Olive Tapenade topping.

Oh my oh my, well I am finally glad to share with you, one of my favorite bread. This bread is really a staple in my home.

We make it to serve with a hot chili dish, or just to eat as a snack food.

Because we don't eat any animal products in our family, it doesn't mean that we don't eat an array of deliciousness!! I will show you how easy it is to be vegan, and make new very simple dish that will please your family or guests.

As always, not only is it beautiful to look at, but also very tasty!

We eat spicy but if you want to leave out the heat, by all means!! You can find my sour cream recipe here, which is also very easy to make. I always have it on hand because sour cream goes on everything. I use it in a variety of dishes because it is so versatile.
