Baking: Cornbread Muffin

10 more days to go before christmas! i’m sure everyone’s very busy doing their last-minute shopping, attending parties and pigging out left and right. i surely miss the festive mood of holidays in the philippines. here in christchurch, i don’t feel the christmas spirit unless i go to the mall and see the decors, massive sale and the throngs of people with their big shopping bags. but looking elsewhere, it just look like an ordinary day.

for some reasons, kenny rogers roasters restaurant crossed my mind and i suddenly thought of their cornbread. yep! it’s the cornbread that i miss and not the chicken. haha!

so now, you know what my latest project is. 😉
