Loaded with pizza flavor, these moist muffins are served at Andrea McGee's home regularly. "They're great for lunch but also make good appetizers when baked in mini muffin cups," suggests the Port Alsworth, Alaska reader. "Try adding chopped mushrooms or green pepper to the batter."

I love to cook and have thought about submitting some of my recipes for a long time. My supportive and encouraging mom finally convinced me to stop thinking about it...and do it! I often serve this corn bread with chili.
I add potato flakes to make my butterhorns moist and tender. The rolls complement any meal wonderfully with just the right sweetness to make them a coffee hour favorite. Remember to hide a few for yourself!

WE HAD a lot of family get-togethers when I was growing up.
My grandmother, aunts and mom were all good cooks, and each had her own specialty when it came to bread. But Mom's was my favorite - she started making it 40 years ago. The flavors call to mind the taste of corn bread stuffing!

Meet the Cook: Back almost 30 years ago, when I was an Indiana farmer's daughter and a 4-H'er, this won me champion honors at the county fair - then a blue ribbon at the state fair! To this day, my husband tells me it's the best thing that I make.
