    I have a question about the Dressing…you listed the ingredients for the dressing as follows:
    1 1 /2 cup salad dressing
    1 cup sour cream
    1 /2 package Ranch dressing mix
    Mix and spread half of this dressing over the cornbread.
    When you say 1 1/2 cups salad dressing, do you mean mayonnaise?
    Thank you for clarification.

    Hello to Gloria and Kevin – I have had cornbread salad and loved it, but I am always eager to try a different recipe! Thank you! I am so enjoying your column Gloria – you have a nice way of writing and it is so enjoyable to read!!
    I have a question for Kevin – I have tried to buy a subscription for your new addition but when I try to log-in it won’t let me. I have a password that I have not used in a long while – does it not work after a certain time frame? I would appreciate your help. Thank you both and have a great day!!

      Colleen, thanks for the kind comments! I think what you have to do is make sure you are logged out and then try subscribing. Ignore your old login, you have to create a new one. If you still have a problem after doing that, please email me and I’ll help you further!
