At some point, most people have heard about GMOs or seen the “Non-GMO” label but what exactly are GMOs and how do they effect you and your health? This description is taken from the Institute for Responsible Technology website:
With the prices of produce sky rocketing and the amount of chemicals, GMOs and poisons in our food, it’s no wonder more and more people are turning to their own backyard to grow their own foods. While you may not think you can do much with your space, believe it or not, there are tons of options for small backyards, porches and even windowsills.

Cornbread is one of those things that is super delicious but when it’s bad, it’s bad. As simple as cornbread is, it’s pretty easy to make it too dry, too sweet, or lacking flavor in general. Over the weekend I was determined to make cornbread muffins that were just right. As with many traditional foods you probably have a preference on how you like your cornbread but this recipe turned out pretty awesome. Just ask my husband who ate six muffins. In a row. Give this recipe a try!(Eating six muffins in one sitting is optional;)
1 cup Bob’s yellow cornmeal
1 cup organic all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1⁄2 cup turbinado sugar
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1 cup whipping cream
2 large organic egg
1⁄2 stick unsalted organic butter, melted
1⁄4 cup honey
1. Preheat oven to 400
2. In a large bowl, mix all dry ingredients.
3. In a medium size bowl, mix all wet ingredients.
4. Slowly mix wet ingredients into large bowl with dry ingredients.
5. Add paper liners or oil to muffin tray and fill batter to the top of each muffin space.
6. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden.
7. Optional: Once muffins are done you can butter them promptly while hot or add a dab of honey or jam to each muffin.
Note* All the ingredients I use are organic, natural, and non-gmo. Flavor can vary depending on the products you use but you are more than welcome to use what you have in your cupboard or refrigerator.
