Mexican Corn Bread

Our family moved to Southern Maryland in 1997 but we lived there for less than a year before we moved to Northern Virginia.  During my time there I had the opportunity to work as the Curriculum Specialist at "The Seafarers Harry Lundeburg  School of Seamanship" for about six months.  This was the most fun job that I have ever had and it was a wonderful experience!  I enjoyed gourmet lunches every day as I updated the school's website with recipes, menus, and an online cookbook for chefs embarking on a seafaring career.  It was there I met the Director of Culinary Education, Chef Allen Sherwin who gave me so many recipes and tips on baking and cooking.  He gave me this recipe for Corn Bread and since then it has always been a family favorite!
