The American restaurant business has been shaped by many entrepreneurs, so determined to realize their dreams of owning a hot dog cart of starting a restaurant that they sell everything they own to raise cash. Food lore is littered with these stores, and this one is no exception. This time the family car was sold to pay for one month's rent on a converted World War II army tent, an oven, refrigerator, rolling pin, and some hand tools. It was 1948, and that's all Marie Callender and her family needed to make enough pies to start delivering to restaurants in Long Beach, California.

It was the pies that started the company, but soon the bakeries became restaurants and they started serving meals. One of my favorites is the Famous Golden Cornbread and whipped honey butter that comes with many of the entrees. What makes this cornbread so scrumptious is its cake-like quality. The recipe here requires more flour than traditional cornbread recipes, making the finished product soft and spongy just like Marie's.

As usual, this recipe is great! Now, if Todd would just clone O'Charley's potato soup recipe, I would have all I need to keep me happy forever!

This is a very good and easy recipe. I have never tasted the original, but cornbread came out just as described. My husband loved it.
