Cornbread is a local favorite. The local barbecue place has hush puppies, which are small pieces of fried cornbread. The local cafeteria sells Mexican cornbread, with bacon, corn kernels and jalapeños. Cornbread is a favorite with chili and also with pinto beans. And, yes, I'm pretty fond of it!
Corn bread is ok but some are definitely better than others. I've had some that are too sugary with a hard sugar topping on top too boot. Then there are the ones that are some combination of too dry, too dense, too bland.
Cornbread is awesome, especially with chili or my baked beans (I have a recipe that calls for 5 different baked beans, prepared in a crockpot, it can be a side dish for a cookout; with cornbread it becomes a meal). I have an old cast iron skillet that belonged to my great grandmother that I prepare the cornbread in.
