My So-Called Corn Bread Muffins

It’s August 1994, and my aunt invited me over for dinner. Two big things happened that night: my first taste of corn bread, and the debut of My So-Called Life. Ever since, whenever I taste corn bread I can’t help but dream of Angela, Rickie, Rayanne, and Jordan Catalano trafficking the halls of teen angst and flannel.
