These Cornbread Muffins with Cream Style Corn only take 5 ingredients and pair perfectly with just about any meal!
I am a huge fan of cornbread muffins, IF they are sweet enough. When I worked as a Head Start nutrition coordinator, the cooks made amazing homemade cornbread with just the right amount of sweetness. Since then, I’ve had a hard time finding a decent recipe with enough sweetness and flavor. Typically I just buy the cheap Jiffy cornbread mix which is good, but definitely not the same as homemade.
Recently though I added cream-style corn to the Jiffy mix along with 4 other ingredients and the flavor is so much better! The creaminess from the corn added just the right amount of texture and moisture. Of course I could try making cornbread from scratch again, but you know I’m all about saving time when it comes to cooking or baking, so these worked just great.
Since yesterday was Halloween, I thought I’d mention the candy craze that goes on around this holiday. In recent years many parents take on the “Switch Witch” technique when it comes to regulating their children’s candy intake. Personally, I don’t make it a big deal. The day of Halloween (and few days leading up to Halloween), my kids eat more than their share of candy (about 3-4 fun sizes pieces/day). I only worry that they will eat too much and get a stomach ache (which happens when your body isn’t used to so much sugar at one time, at least with my kids). They know the feeling so when I remind them they are not anxious to eat additional candy. Then over the next few days they ask to have candy, which I allow, then I put it in the cupboard and they typically forget about it. Of course, for those children who have allergies or other health issues the Switch Witch concept may be a great alternative to candy. I suggest do whatever works best for your family and don’t stress over it!
