National Day of Something on a Stick – Homemade Corn Dogs
This recipe comes from the cookbook Better Homes & Gardens Heritage Cookbook (pg. 334 under the Fairs & Expositions Heading, © 1976). After devouring my mother’s copy (reading, not eating…) my mother gave me my own copy after she received a second copy. Since the first time I read this recipe I have wanted to try it. I am so excited to share it with you. Happy National Day of Something on a Stick (tomorrow, March 28).
