Light & Fluffy Corn Muffins – the perfect salty and sweet combo muffins that are fluffy and delicious!
I made it through my kids made it through another school year! Yesterday was the last day and we also had our championship baseball game for my oldest.
It was a rough game and we ended up losing but my boy played his heart out and I was just SO proud of his commitment and his hard work. He managed a few runs and had some RBI’s so I felt like it was a good game and a successful season. Next up, football!
I’m not particularly happy about summer. I feel like this blog will be my sanity to help me get through the long days where I’ll mostly likely have a house filled with my boys’ friends. That’s what it seems like nowadays.
Apparently word gets out that a certain mom cooks a lot and you end up having the whole neighborhood wanting to come over and hang out aka eat your food. 😉 It’s nice to be the party house but I hope it doesn’t turn into an all day, every day thing this summer!
A few weeks ago, when I was picking up my husband from the hospital after his appendectomy, we headed to Sweet Tomatoes. Have you ever been there before? OMG. I love that place. It’s funny how you think you’re being all healthy going to a salad bar but I swear I leave there probably consuming more calories than I normally eat in a week!
Anyway, we all know I’m a carb freak, yes? They have these corn muffins there that are so freaking amazing. They’re full of corn kernels and just wow. I always have the urge to wrap a huge bundle in napkins and stick them in my purse before leaving. (Don’t worry, I haven’t done that! Yet.)
Corn muffins are one of my very favorite side dishes and my boys feel the same. These muffins are amazing. Light, fluffy and easy as can be. I LOVE the whole corn kernels in here and the texture of them in the muffins. If you’re looking for a fun side dish to cook up this weekend, give these a try. You won’t be sorry!

Well.. thats what happens when you have a cool mom that can cook.. you become the “place to go”. 🙂
I love sweet tomatoes too, these corn muffins sound awesome. Perfect with a salad during the summer or with a bowl of chili for the fall! 🙂

These muffins look yummy with the whole corn kernels and mozzarella too! Great additions. Boys are so different from girls, when the girls are all here I don’t even know it but when my sons’ friends are here it’s crazy time. Good Luck 🙂

I, too, am a fellow carb lover! LOVE carbs. Mmmmm …. breads, crackers, cookies, mmmmm
And do you know what one of my very favorite carbs? Yep! Cornbread! My littlest loves it too! I love to make it when we have Mexican for dinner, but it really could go with pretty much any meal ever! Thanks for a delicious recipe! I cannot wait to make these little fabulous morsels!
Shelley and I know exactly what you mean about the kids coming and eating! She’s got loads of kiddos on her street and they often run through and grab something while we are testing recipes – we usually have to remind them that the recipe isn’t totally done yet … and then we also ask for feedback! It can work out really well! 🙂
Kids are the best taste testers!! At least they’re honest, right?! Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’re having a great weekend!

No wonder you are the popular house – everything you make looks amazing! And these muffins are no exception – they look like perfect corn muffins. So fluffy!!
You’re so sweet, Cate!! Thanks! My boys sometimes brag that I’m a food blogger to their friends and the other kids usually have no idea what a food blogger is. HA! So much for glamorous, huh?! LOL!

They look perfect Jen! It’s been too long since I’ve had corn muffins.
