Cozy Corn Muffins: Easy Recipes

After last weeks 70° temperatures here in New England, I would be lying if I told you 22° on a Tuesday morning was a welcoming feeling. It's cold here again, and yesterday was so windy that it felt like I may blow off the pavement on my way into Target! Last week was beautiful, warm and welcome and a bit of a tease! I know it's spring and I know the worst of winter is behind us (and it was the easiest Winter I can remember) but I'm not liking the looks of this weeks temperatures one bit! 

Today I decided my crockpot will be my BFF this week. Like so many of you, we've got a busy schedule, so when we all come together at the end of the day, a nice, warm meal will be welcome! For snacks this week, i'm making some delicious, hearty corn muffins. These are wholesome and yummy. It occurred to me that mini muffins were some of the first snacks my babies enjoy the most. I used to make them weekly, perfect size for little hands. Isn't it fitting that my first baby has her very first theater performance this week? A nice time to revisit a beloved recipe and to remind her, how proud I am, how far she's come and that no matter how busy the schedule gets, she is always  welcome home with a delicious snack made with ❤️.

  1. We've had the same kind of weather! Last week was so nice, and it was beautiful until Sunday night when it decided we needed rain again! I'm welcoming the break, though, because too much nice weather this early has made everything start to bloom, and all the pollen is out, a month and a half early! My allergies are hating it, ha!
    Corn muffins are delicious, but I've never heard of putting yogurt in them before! Then again, I've only ever made them from the Jiffy mix, ha. Will have to give this recipe a go! :D

    1. Yes, strange weather all across the country!

      This recipe is delicious, and if I'm being honest, is much yummier than the box of Jiffy! Although, I do love that old school mix :) The yogurt seems to help avoid these from being too crumbly.

  2. It's 28 here this morning and we had those awful wind gusts over the weekend. I thought our roof was going to blow off or a tree would fall on us. I'm not liking this week's forecast of cold temps either. Bring back Spring! These corn muffins look so good. We like eating them for breakfast too. How exciting about the first theater performance. I hope she gets the "performance bug". They are really fun!

    1. I think we are all screaming bring back Spring! Today just feels cruel!

  3. I've heard about the crazy weather you guys have been having up there! Corn muffins to the rescue! Good luck to your daughter. I loved doing theater in High School. I regret not being in more plays.

    1. It's been a great experience. First show is tonight :)

  4. Crazy weather here too!
    I am pinning. :-) And a good reminder to make mini muffins. Sometimes we forget to make those favorite old time recipes.
    xx oo

    1. Sometimes these old school recipes just bring us back! Simple!

  5. I am intrigued at the brown sugar in your recipe, definitely trying!
    Looking forward to how the theater performance goes!
