Is that what it is? Is that why I don't "get" Brent's love of biscuits? I have had good biscuits (by my standards), but I don't catch myself ever saying "that's a really good biscuit". No matter how good it is, it's still just a biscuit.
Cornbread, on the other hand...I have actually said it more than once about one particular cornbread recipe (Hard Times in Rockville -- the chef was experimenting a little bit, threw in some dessert-y type spices -- cinnamon? Whatever it was, it was really subtle.).
