Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins (Tuesdays with Dorie)
Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins

My log of activities from New Years Eve to the present...

Honey and tea.
Salt water gargling.
Warm blankets.
Can't taste food.
Hand sanitizer.
Kleenex (box #1).
Zicam (via the nose).
Sudafed (the “meth” edition).
Heart races.
Go to work, go home early.
Still can't taste food.
More Kleenex (box #4).
Zicam (rapidmelt).
Even more Kleenex (box #9).
Losing will to go on because I can't taste food.
Urgent care.
Z-Pack antibiotics.
Another box of Sudafed.
Crazy stomach stuff with antibiotics.
Make muffins for Tuesdays with Dorie to share with only myself.
Add extra jalapeno and chili powder so I can actually taste something.

Yeah, Happy New Year!

I apologize for not commenting on blogs since the new year and checking out all your yummies. I have been coming home and going to bed with my humidifier and cat. Seriously crazy amounts of sleep - like going to bed at 7:10 pm. I'm starting to feel a bit better now and am still in awe of those great scientists who created The Wonderful World of Antibiotics.

I can't really tell you how these tasted...since I'm not the best judge at the moment. But they certainly are more colorful than your regular corn muffin! Be sure to check out the other Tuesdays with Dorie bakers! And stay healthy!!!!

Good gravy, your holidays sound remarkably a lot like mine, sans antibiotics! Glad that you're on the mend, I'm sure the extra dose of chili in the muffins will help.

Wow, those look beautiful! I'm so jealous of their perfect shape. Sorry to hear you've been so sick, hope you're feeling better!

Jessica said... [Reply to comment]

Feel better soon! I've been doing almost anything I can think of to avoid getting sick and I'm crossing my fingers that it works. Not being able to taste things is the worst too. They look great though. I froze the rest of mine. Hopefully they'll freeze well and I can continue to enjoy them.

Hope your feeling better soon! Despite your illness, the muffins are very pretty. I bet they're perfect with a big bowl of chili.

The flu is also going around here, including a raging case of pink eye. Yikes! Take care of yourself.

Oh you poor thing - I'm glad you are on the road to recovery!

My husband came down with pneumonia the day after Thanksgiving and it took 6 weeks, 15 boxes of Kleenex,2 rounds of antibiotics, and 2 bottles of codeine cough syrup for him to get better!

Sexxxay!!! Hope you're feeling better. You coaxed some great color out of these muffins.

Nancy/n.o.e said... [Reply to comment]

Now that's dedication: getting off your sickbed and baking and posting your TWD recipe - a baker has to have her priorities, right? And you know it's bad when Zicam doesn't knock it out. I seriously love that stuff. I hope you saved some muffins for the return of your sense of taste, and that you like them. I put extra spice in ours - no colds here, we just like them that way. They were yummy. Yours look amazing.

Rachel said... [Reply to comment]

Glad you're feeling better! Your muffins look great!

spike. said... [Reply to comment]

I'm impressed you still made the muffins when you can't taste anything! Hope you are feeling better soon

Jacque said... [Reply to comment]

Aaaah, sounds like you got a really nasty bug. Hope you get to feeling better soon.

Your muffins are beauti-muss! Maybe you put some in the freezer for a later date, so you can enjoy them fully? Anyway, way to get your TWD done, in spite of being sick.

AmyRuth said... [Reply to comment]

Ah so glad you are on the mend and sorry to hear you've been choking the cold virus. A holiday to hoo. Stellar effort on your carousel of colors muffins. Isn't it amazing how vibrant they are? Glad you had a change of pace. Get well soon.

I hope you are feeling better! Spicy food always helps clear up those nasal passages... I hope these helped!
