Cornbread Muffins - just about the BEST side that goes with everything! Slather on the butter and honey for a special treat! Click on the Photo for the Recipe!

Even though I was born and raised in the Midwest, I feel like I have always been a Southern girl at heart. Maybe that’s why I married a Southern guy. Well, technically Doug is not from the South – at least not the real South – but to me Southern Illinois is far enough South. He did have a Southern accent when I met him, so I think that counts.

Anyway, back to food. There is just something about Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Baked Beans, and Cornbread that makes my heart sing! How about you?

Southern food, in my opinion, is the ultimate comfort food. I don’t think I have ever been to a family reunion at my in-laws that there wasn’t Fried Chicken, Homemade Noodles, Beans, and yes, even Cornbread.

Cornbread Muffins

These Cornbread Muffins are a snap to make, they go together quickly with simple ingredients. The addition of sour cream makes them moist, and the sugar gives them the right amount of sweetness.

Are you a fan of cooking shows? I am. There is a new show on Ovation TV that we recently discovered and have been enjoying – Southern Uncovered with the Lee Brothers.

The hosts Matt and Ted Lee, tour the South on their journey to explore Southern cities and the food stories behind them. Tune in on Sundays at 8 p.m. EST to discover all the unique and unexpected Southern cuisine and culture. They have discovered Louisville, Asheville, Atlanta, and Charleston, and they will visit Dallas and New Orleans soon.
