Strawberry Pecan Muffins

Strawberry Pecan Muffins

Strawberries are usually at their best when they are eaten at the peak of season and uncooked, since they have both a great flavor and texture when they are fresh. But when strawberries are in season, I find that I am very tempted to put them in to all kinds of things, from breakfast to baked goods. These Strawberry Pecan Muffins are a very good ...

Lemon Cardamom Cornmeal Muffins

Lemon Cardamom Cornbread Muffins

Spices find their way into cold weather treats more often than summery ones. Gingerbread and spice cakes are rich with many spices, but they’re typically reserved for the holidays and not served during summer.

Bountiful Blueberry Muffins

Bountiful Blueberry Muffins

Nothing is more disappointing than biting into a beautiful blueberry muffin at a bakery or coffee shop and finding out that there aren’t very many blueberries inside. Unfortunately, this happens more often than it should (and it really should never happen) because some bakers will stud the outside of their muffins with berries and skimp on berries in the batter. When you bake your own ... Read More »

Vanilla Coconut Muffins

Coconut fans will want to bookmark these Vanilla Coconut Muffins because, although they look plain, they are delicious muffins that deliver a lot of flavor. I happen to be a big fan of coconut myself, and one of my pet peeves about some coconut recipes is that they don’t have very much coconut in them. These muffins don’t fit that mold at all. They are ... Read More »
