Adrienne and I made ATOMIC CORNBREAD for Thanksgiving, as part of her xoxocooks Cooking Show.
Okay, here’s my disclaimer before you watch this. I know NOTHING about cooking. But I followed directions, took criticism well, repeated what Adrienne said to say, and the muffins were delicious enough to eat!
1 cup flour 3/4 cup cornmeal 1/4 cup sugar 1 tablespoon baking powder 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk 1 egg 2 1/2 cups corn (one bag of frozen corn)
5 tablespoons butter 3 teaspoons red pepper flakes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt the butter and the pepper flakes together on the stovetop, and pour into the bottoms of 2 muffin tins (we had enough batter for 22 muffins, so leave a couple holes empty). Put buttery muffin tins in the oven to warm up while you work on making the muffin batter.
Stir together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together buttermilk and egg in another large bowl, then add in the corn. Combine wet and dry ingredients, stir a bit, then pour into the warm muffin tins. Cook for 30-40 minutes, until they begin to brown on the edges.
Here are my 5 weeks exploring South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula in 3 minutes and 30 seconds.
In here we’ve got swells at the gangway from the mud room, mating and snoozing Elephant Seals, well-fed King Penguins and 10 month old chicks, a blizzard, rolling hurricane seas, waddling Adelies, copulating Chinstraps and a calm day at Baily Head. And lots of interesting noises!

I went over to Adrienne's tonight and Guest Chef'd on her xoxocooks Cooking Show. We made super easy and delicious Cranberry Sauce. And it was fun! I hope she asks me to do it again, because all I know about cooking I’m learning from her xoxocooks YouTube Channel.
