Muffins and Scones

Cranberry Walnut Muffins

When something I’ve baked invokes “No. More. Wire. HANGERS!”” a la Mommie Dearest, I know it’s time to put down the wooden spoon and back away from the oven. With this last batch of muffins, I think I might just be all muffined-out. I’m not sure I can eat another one. If it’s true, that [...]

Blueberry Lemon Muffins

Blueberry Lemon Muffins

I remember when I had time to cook my husband pancakes, eggs, and bacon every morning for breakfast. You can bet my husband remembers those days, too. Those were the good ol’ days.

(For cupcakes, I stick to the Number 12 scoop.) My infatuation for this scoop comes not from gotta-have-that-gadget consumerism but a desire [...]

Corn Muffins

Growing up, I’d only eat corn in two forms: on the cob and popped, with the latter preferably coated in caramel. I could watch you cut fresh corn off the cob, put it straight on my plate, and I’d refuse to touch it. Why? Rational thinking didn’t seem to come naturally for me as a [...]
