TWD - Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins

This week's recipe on TWD (Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins) was chosen by Rebecca of Ezra Pound Cake, one of my favorite blogs to read! Head over her way and check out the recipe.

Let me just say, "you had me at muffin."
I'm a huge muffin fan and especially anything that looks like, tastes like, or feels like cornbread in my mouth gets an A-plus from me. I always say a muffin tastes so much better when a little batter spills here and there. Don't you say that too?
My DH did not care for them so much. That's because he is not a fan of red bell pepper and he said that is all he could taste in them. I am not sure how he missed the wonderful taste of the corn and the jalapeno and just the batter itself, but he baffles me sometimes.

These muffins completed me. They were delicious.

My batter was much thicker than yours! Looks like the turned out lovely, though.

LOVE the Jerry Maguire assimilation!

Your muffins look fantastic...I like when a bit of the batter dribbles, too!

I have an aunt who hates red bellpepper and claims that the flavor overwhelms everything else around it. It's tricky when she's around because I love red bellpepper and add it to almost everything. Your muffins look delicious.

I wish I could eat Red Peppers, but they do not agree with me. I would leave those out of mine... BUT I love the color combo of the red, green and yellow.
Yours are pretty like that! :)

Your muffins turned out great!

Cathy said...

Yes, I DO always say that thing about the batter, Peggy. And you know how we Yankees can be with cornbread. You'll have to cut your hubs some slack, he can't help it. I can tell from your pictures that your muffins were FABULOUS!!

TeaLady said...

My DH doesn't like pepper either. Ah, well. Your muffins look yummy! Glad you liked them.

BTW my goodies from W-S came. Can't wait to show y'all what I got from your fantastic generosity and giveaway. Thanks.

I'm so glad you liked these! I can be iffy on bell pepper at times; we really liked the canned green chiles in these muffins, so maybe hubby would agree?
Muffins of all kinds are big favorites at our house too!

I agree these corn muffins were yummy! Yours looked great.

Yours turned out great! I missed the gene that allows one to get muffins out of a tin without mangling them... thus the papers.

Sara said...

These look perfect! I must try this recipe soon, corn muffins are one of my favorites.

Tammy said...

I'm pleased you enjoyed them. I think I am more with your husband - although I love peppers!

Audrey said...

They usually have me at muffin too...I want to make Dorie's lemon poppy seeds muffins next. I'm glad you liked these!

I wonder if DH would like the flavor of roasted red peppers. I think that might add another layer of flavor to the muffin come to think of it!
By the way, I'm not sure if I ever told you how much I love your Dr. Seuss quote. I'm going to share it with my fourth graders. Kids are notorious at hiding who they really are so they can fit in. Thanks for the inspiration!

Marthe said...

Sounds like you loved these as much as I did. I can't see how your husband couldn't like them!!
