Since I was making Slow-Cooker Turkey Chili this weekend, I decided to add in another new recipe for my 50 in 15 Challenge and make some Sweet Cornbread Muffins to accompany the chili. I found many variations of cornbread recipes, with the biggest difference being the flour-to-cornmeal ratio. And being a fan of sweet cornbread, I specifically looked for a recipe that used sugar. The recipe I ended up using is the Cornbread Muffins recipe by Jennifer Segal from the website Once Upon a Chef. And the end result was absolutely delicious — a perfect, tender, and sweet pairing to my Slow-Cooker Turkey Chili.

(This also gave me a good excuse to tackle my 3rd new recipe for my 50 in 15 Challenge.) I searched a handful of sites for different ways to make mashed potato “cakes”, most of which were same general recipe. So I pared them down to the most basic recipe and gave it a go.
