cranberry corn bran muffins

Posted on

I adapted this recipe a whole lot and these little babies still turned out delish. I love corn muffins, corn bread, corn everything. When I taught in Atlanta and the school had fried chicken and corn bread, I would weasel my way to the front of the lunch line, throw 2 quarters down on the counter, and search for the largest possible piece there was on the lunch tray.  Those were the days.

Today, I worked in the morning at the bakery and had the afternoon off. What else would you do on your day off besides bake? Well, I also edited some wedding pictures. I am really into editing pictures at the moment. I am in love with my Canon EOS Rebel T3. The pictures come out incredible (when I know what I am doing) and the editing on these pictures is awesome as well. I want to take a photography class real bad. Anyone in the Reading area have a suggestion for where to take photography classes? Anyway, on to the recipe…
