Usually when I have friends and family over to eat, I mix up my menu with tried-and-true dishes I know everyone will love alongside a few new recipes I’ve never attempted before. I figure if the new dishes don’t turn out, I can fall back on the old favorites and pretend the failed recipe never existed. I mean, why not add to the adventure of entertaining by making something new?
A couple weeks ago, I saw a corn muffin recipe that gave classic cornbread a savory makeover. I’m always a little nervous when I make new recipes for guests, but I think this one has officially earned a spot in my regular entertaining repertoire.
