Savory Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
Never having tried corn muffins these sounded like something that would be worth the effort. I used the salted butter instead of unsalted and I used all the salt (1 1/2 tsp) I served it with chili. I noticed no overbearing saltiness in the muffins. I love the idea of the creamed corn in the muffin. Our friend said they were good. I might try them again adding the jalepenos and cheese next time. I did over mix them I'm afraid but not sure if it changed anything. They fell apart as we ate them but maybe they all do that anyway. I would only eat these and not bother with corn muffins without the creamed corn. I like the bits of corn in the muffins. I don't want it to taste like a cupcake so I wouldn't add more sugar. I would think the idea is to add salt and sugar to enhance the corn flavor not make it salty nor sweet. Everything is too sweet these days. I like flavor more than sweet. If our friend wants them the next time he comes over - I'll make them. Maybe adding crumbled bacon to the batter might be nice.

Slow Cooker Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
My father was a child during the depression. This was something his mother made for her boys. Just as is - no tweaking. No apples, caraway seed, onions, bacon or tomatoes. He wouldn't eat it if it wasn't the way his mother made it. His palate couldn't or wouldn't adapt. She did have baking powder dumplings simmering on the top. It was served to him over boiled potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces. I could enjoy any of the other versions but this is the one I grew up with and it will always have a special place in my heart. Good food doesn't have to get complicated. It reminds me of my dad.
