My husband and I were having this long discussion about corn bread of all things. He like jalapeno corn breads and other savory corn breads. While on the other hand I like sweet corn bread. Well that conversation sparked a craving for corn bread. Messed around a bit with some corn-meal and came up with these muffins. So basically I totally disregarded his feelings and opted to make sweet corn muffins.
