Project Pastry Queen: Whole Lemon-Blueberry Muffins

Whole Lemon Muffins with Blueberries

It’s Wildcard Weekend for Project Pastry Queen. We get to go back and make any recipe that we missed along the way. I chose to make the Whole Lemon Muffins that Tara hosted a few weeks ago. The recipe is unique in that you take an entire lemon, remove the seeds, and then throw the [...]

Strawberry Cream Cheese Muffins

Strawberry Cream Cheese Muffins

While dessert is typically at the top of our list when it comes to strawberries, breakfast is a close second. Muffins, scones, and anything else that can be eaten with one hand has been super popular around here ever since the Foodie Baby made her appearance last year. They’re also popular with the Foodie Groom [...]

Strawberry Jam Scones

Strawberry Jam Scones

This week’s Project Pastry Queen was a Wildcard Week. We could go back and make any recipe that we missed. I loosely interpreted that rule (it’s really more like a guideline anyway ) and made a dish that I had already made once: Peach Jam Scones. Only this time time, we didn’t use peach jam! [...]

Project Cranberry-Orange Muffins

Rather Rich Corn Muffins

Amanda of Fake Ginger chose this week’s Project Pastry Queen Challenge: Rather Rich Corn Muffins. I’ve made these muffins a hundred times. Quite possibly literally 100 times. It’s my go-to cornbread/corn muffin recipe for good reason – it’s perfectly sweet and super moist. It’s also a very non-fussy recipe. I throw everything into the mixer [...]

Peach Jam Scones were one of the featured menu items of the cooking class Ashley (Delish) and I attended back in June. I picked up an important tip: Work fast. The warmer your dough, the more likely you are to get [...]

Sun-Dried Tomato, Basil, and Parmesan Muffins

[Take a large, super unlady-like bite of muffin.] [Lick fingers, wipe on jeans.] [Enter a witty antedocte that somehow relates to food and marriage.] [Or not.] [Click Post.] Another batch of savory muffins using the “master recipe” from 1 Mix, 100 Muffins. I loaded these muffins with sun-dried tomatoes, fresh basil, and a mound of [...]

Scallion and Goat Cheese Muffins

I put all new cookbooks go through an initiation process, of sorts. Maybe it’s more of an orientation. I read each book, cover to cover, once. Well-written books like those from The Pastry Queen find their way to my nightstand Then I sit next to my husband on the couch while he plays Gears 2 [...]
