"The flavors of cheese, pepper and sage come through in slices of this zippy corn bread that's best served right out of the oven," assures Norma Pederson of Colman, South Dakota. "Warm slices are great with a simple soup."
Because my family loves muffins, I'm always on the lookout for new variations. When I tried these nutritional muffins the first time, they were really a hit and became a favorite addition to our big family meals.
Bold autumn flavors of sweet potatoes, cranberries and cinnamon give seasonal appeal to these golden muffins. I recommended them for a change-of-pace treat with a meal, packed into a lunch box or as a snack.

WE LIKE corn bread with our chili, and this makes just enough for two people. I received the recipe from a quilting friend at church and have shared it with many others.
Another way that my husband and I like eating corn bread is straight out of the oven, buttered and topped with syrup.

If you love chocolate, you won't be able to resist this rich, fudgy torte. I often make it for company because it's easy to prepare yet looks so impressive. For special occasions, I place it on a fancy cake plate and I use a can of whipped topping to decorate it. It looks and tastes awesome!

Popular served with tea in Victorian days, scones are making a big comeback. Apricots and nuts are stirred into the batter in this recipe I baked for the theme shower. Spread with Devonshire cream, they delighted the bride-to-be and guests.
