Homemade Corn Dogs in a Muffin Shape! and Michael Pollan’s Cooked!

Hi everyone! I know what you’re thinking:  Corn dogs are terrible for you! Hey, well guess what? Not these! Sure, it’s not the most nutritious dinner but if your kids are jonesing for corn dogs filled with garbage additives, this is a great alternative if paired with a nice helping of vegetables. And who doesn’t like a cupcake shape?

My pickiest kid LOVED this so I will be making it again. I used my own cornbread recipe, added a bit of honey to it and used no nitrate hot dogs so my kids wouldn’t get sick!

I also want to share that Michael Pollan has a new book about the need to cook. He discusses many historical facts that we discuss here on tbk but I think he still needs my help:
Michael Pollan’s New Book

Please email him and tell him he needs my help to get people to be ABLE to get into the kitchen!!
