Tuesdays with Dorie - Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins

So, this week, our Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins, chosen by Rebecca of Ezra Pound Cake. After I started reading the recipe, I thought "oh, okay, Mexican cornbread" lol. We like to eat it, but I don't usually make it, because Sean loves plain cornbread. I actually just took it out of the oven a little while ago. I've already taste-tested, lol, because I couldn't hardly stand it! They smelled soooo good while they were baking. I only made a couple of changes to the recipe. First, I added a handful of shredded cheese to the batter, and I left out the cilantro (because it never made it in my basket at the grocery store!). I never would have thought to put it in there, but the addition of the chili powder and the freshly cracked black pepper both add a nice flavor to the muffins. Mine turned out very moist and tasty! I'm planning on making either posole or taco soup for supper, and I think these will go quite well with either. I'm sure I'm going to have to make some plain cornbread for Sean, but this recipe will have to make it's way into the regular rotation. :)

Make your way over to the Tuesdays with Dorie site and check out the blogroll to see what the other bakers did with this weeks choice!!

Editing to add the picture, LOL!

Update!! D really liked them, and I think they were even better at room temperature after a few hours (although they were pretty darn good straight out of the hot muffin pan!). Sean would not even try them...he saw the "vegetables!!" in them, and said no. :) I wound up making posole to go with them. I would definitely reccommend trying this recipe!!

I added cheese too -- great minds must think alike ;)

I wish I had thought to add some cheese. That would be making a good thing better, for sure! Welcome to TWD!!

Wow, I'm glad they were well liked at your house.

I wish I'd have added some cheese, that sounds delish.

Homemade Cinnamon Dolce Latte

I recently professed my love of coffee and fancy coffee drinks.  After the success of the Peppermint Mocha , I decided to tackle the Cinnamon Dolce Latte, another one of my favorites.  According to the Starbucks website, it has flavors of "cinnamon, butter and brown sugar".  Well, I covered the cinnamon and brown sugar components, but left out the butter.  And you know what, I think it turned out quite well, if I do say so myself!  I honestly wasn't sure if the cinnamon flavor in the syrup was going to be strong enough, but it was.  I will admit to being impatient and not letting it steep for very long, so the cinnamon flavor might develop more if you do actually let it sit and cool off first.  If you wanted it to be even stronger, you could always add a tiny bit of cinnamon oil to it as well.  But be careful -- a little of that goes a long way! How much to make depends on how much you'll actually use.  I just made a single batch this first time, but considering

Thick and Chewy Snickerdoodles

I admit, I love snickerdoodles.   Cinnamon and vanilla?   Yes, please.   What’s funny is that I never really had them much as a kid, just occasionally in the school cafeteria.   I know, ew. Anyway, snickerdoodles were one of the first cookies that the Munchkin helped make when he was little.   He could help dump everything in the mixer (or “loud noise” as he would call it!) and then it was fun for him to roll the balls of dough in the cinnamon sugar before putting them on the baking sheet. Even since then, my go-to recipe for snickerdoodles has been this one by Emeril.   It’s a great recipe, baking up a thin, crispy cookie (at least when I make them!).   However, I was looking for something different this time, something thicker and chewier.   I found this recipe from the blog How Sweet it Is .   I decided to try it, and while I did keep the ingredient list the same I changed up the method a bit to suit me better.   The result?   What I was looking for – thick and

Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

While looking through my notebook, I ran across a recipe that I made oh, about 5 or so years ago. I remember making it. And I remember Sean loving it, which is a miracle considering it has a **shudder** vegetable in it. But I never made it again. I decided why not try it again. I've never made real Chicken Cordon Bleu, and I honestly think I've only eaten it once or twice, so I can't truly compare this casserole to the real thing. I made some changes to the recipe that I found, and in the recipe I've posted below I've made a few tweaks that I think will make it better. It's not a light recipe by any means, but if your New Year's Resolution was to eat healthier, you could probably make some changes to make it health ier ... It was good, but I probably won't make it often. While D and I liked it, Sean and even Kade just picked at it. Oh well. Random, but have I mentioned that school starts back today? I am SO ready. ;) Enjoy! Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole
