Every year, we buy the Jiffy cornbread mix. We buy two boxes, and I’m in charge of making cornbread muffins (well, adding milk to the mix). I make the first batch, forget it’s in the oven, and it comes out a little burned. Then, I make the second batch, watch it like a hawk and it comes out great. No matter what, only two of the muffins get eaten.
