Really lovely cornbread muffins. I went just a bit heavier on the chives as mine are growing insanely this year. I think they are planning a coup to take over the yard! But I digress, the recipe took just a few mins to put together and they are delicious. Perfect with grilled chicken and a light fruit salad. Well done Jackie. Made for Cornbread is King,Part 2.
Wonderful easy recipe for cornbread muffins!!! I made these as written with the exception of using melted butter for the oil. Served these with a crock pot pinto bean and ham hock recipe, yummy!!! I liked that these weren't very sweet like most cornbread recipes. Thanks for sharing/making this recipe. Made for CQ 2014.

I didn't start cooking until my early 20's, even though I come from a family of accomplished and admired home cooks. While I grew up watching my Italian grandmother in the kitchen, I remained uninterested in trying anything on my own. As a young lady, I was known for being particularly ignorant in the kitchen, with no idea how to even make a hot dog! All this changed, however, when I got engaged. I realized it was time to let my inherent talents out of the bag. At the time, the New York Times had a weekly column called The 60-Minute Gourmet by Pierre Franey. Each week, I would follow these recipes diligently, and taught myself to cook that way. From there, I began to read cookbooks and consult with relatives on family recipes. At my ripe old age now, I feel I know enough to put together a very pleasing meal and have become accomplished in my own right. Having an Irish father and an Italian mother, I'm glad I inherited the cooking gene (and the drinking one too!). One thing I have learned is that simpler is always better! I always believe cooking fills a need to nurture and show love. After being widowed fairly young and living alone with my dog and cats, I stopped cooking for awhile, since I really had no one to cook for. I made care packages for my grown son occasionally, and like to cook weekly for my boyfriend, so I feel like I am truly back in the saddle!!
