I know it seems too soon to post another muffin recipe, but the Tropical Muffins are gone, because my husband was eating them two and three at a time. Well, these are not so sweet, with only half the sugar, … Continue reading Sour Cream Carrot Breakfast Muffins
This recipe differs in both ingredients and method from the one I posted two years ago. I like both for different reasons, as you’ll see. Two years ago I wrote about Homemade Muesli, one where I hand-chop all the fruit … Continue reading Another Muesli Recipe
We’ve had enough days of cold and snow to bring out a desire for some big bran muffins full of walnuts and raisins. Of course I already have a pretty perfect Buttermilk Bran Muffin recipe, just not all of its … Continue reading Revising a Recipe without a Parachute
This is a merging of two recipes in my old Betty Crocker’s New Picture Cook Book (1961): “Cranberry-Orange Muffins” (p. 88) and “Oatmeal Muffins” (p. 90). The recipes are so similar in amounts of ingredients, that it didn’t take much … Continue reading Oatmeal Cranberry Walnut Muffins

I suppose you’ve seen the Molasses Ginger cookies featured on my home page, and maybe I’ve said that oatmeal-raisin are my all-time favorite cookie, so it should come as no surprise that bran muffins with molasses and raisins are my … Continue reading Buttermilk Bran Muffins
What was the answer to yesterday’s mystery question? Continue reading It was Pesto!
If you’ve been reading my posts recently, you knew this was coming. I did debone a 15 lb turkey and successfully rolled and roasted it. Very pleasantly surprised, especially since my oven has ruined several recent holidays by refusing to … Continue reading Turkey Roll with Cranberry, Walnut, Sausage Stuffing
I had to get that two day cranberry experiment out of my head, plus, I had buttermilk in the fridge calling to me. I had some figs and some walnuts, so all I needed was the blue cheese—some Stilton to … Continue reading Savory Scones: Blue Cheese, Figs, and Walnuts
