“My mother and my grandmother are the loves of my life and I still have the privilege of spending this special day with both of them,” says Doreen Colondres, chef and creator of La Cocina No Muerde. And lucky for her, she gets to share this delish cornbread (created by her Aunt Carmen) with them.
“When I was little, she used to call us to visit and would always have her coconut cornbread waiting," Colendres said. "One day she shared the recipe with my mom. I used to love to help my mom prepare it and then enjoy the aroma of the house while baking it.”
