"Haven't made yet, but want to comment anyways.....it does sound good,and I may try it.....but why not try " DILL PICKLE SOUP" to go with it ? Someone just sent me this recipe and I think it is very interesting......have had deep fried dill pickles....to me not all that, but I have heard from a lot of people they love it.....so is a preference.......probably just like this soup.....so if anyone has made this soup, can you please let us know what you think about it ? Thanks"

"Everyone loves these. I did make minor adjustment reducing the corn meal to 3/4 cup and increasing all purpose flour to 1 3/4 cup. It was a little too grainy otherwise."

"I made these delicious muffins and took them to a Chili Cook-Off as a "side." They were a hit! Very tasty, moist and the cranberries and nuts really gave the corn muffin a tangy taste and nice texture. I will definitely bake them again!! Nancy S. from Larue, Texas"
