New grandmothers sometimes get a little goofy - in my case it was "corny". Since our state is known for growing corn, I planned a corn theme dinner for our grandson's first visit. These golden mini muffins with a rich corn taste were a fun part of the meal. -Nadine Brimeyer, Denver, Iowa

"The canned corn makes these very moist and sweet. I varied it just slightly, topping some muffins with the sunflower seeds, and then mixing them into the batter for a few at the end. I used a full-size muffin tin and the only problem I had was that the tops didn't become high and domed, possibly due to moisture content - or pilot error. Doesn't matter - they were delicious!"
