Corn Bread Mix & Muffins, Guest Antonia Scott

I am a busy high school teacher with a teenage son and a husband. The mix was a quick fix for me. It was 'wow' at first bite! It was very quick and easy to make. It went well with my spagetti and meat sauce. I am glad that I choose this recipe. I give this mix and recipe an A+.
