Toffee Snickerdoodle Muffins

Toffee Snickerdoodle Muffins

Light and airy, sticky and sweet, these bite-sized morsels mimic snickerdoodle cookies, but are packaged as a breakfast food so you don’t have to feel so guilty for indulging.

You know how much I hate making messes. These muffins are full of mess. Dropping blobs of batter into cinnamon sugar and then having to …

Cranberry Spiced Muffins - play with your food! - Poet in the Pantry

{Edited January 9, 2015} Today, I am craving muffins. Not that such a thing is all that unusual, or varying much from any other day. But it’s been a while since I’ve baked any and since the weather has been quite frightful, I thought it was time to resurrect a Muffin Monday favorite of the …

Sandy is coming and there’s nowhere to hide.

For the second year in a row, Connecticut will be receiving abnormal weather at the end of October, disrupting Halloween and wreaking havoc on homes everywhere. At this point, there is still some dispute as to what exactly awaits us, but all are clear: there will …

Pear and Raisin Allspice Crumb Muffins

Sometimes you need a little decadence in your morning. The ho-hum bowl of cereal just isn’t enough. That’s when you need Pear and Raisin Allspice Crumb Muffins. (And some googly eyes if you’re grumpy and need a laugh, too!)

Like going to a party, these require a little extra preparation. I pre-cooked the pears …

Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Muffins

Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Muffins

Last week we missed out on Muffin Monday, seeing as it was very busy and I had a lot of other commitments that kept me from doing it. The kids seemed a little lost when it came time to pack their lunches and snacks: they had gotten used to a muffin a day. They practically …

Orange Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin is a tough sell in our house. The kids love it but my husband is not a fan. Can’t stand the smell of it, doesn’t want to look at it, and he better not hear it’s in anything I’ve tried to feed him. He will not budge.

This makes it difficult to experiment …

Whole Grain Zucchini Lemon & Lavender Muffins

Zucchini Lemon & Lavender Muffins

On the first try, I was a little too ambitious. I was stressed out from a last-minute need to bathe the dog (I don’t want to talk about it). During the bathing, the kitchen sink AND the bathtub drain started leaking. And our comforter was in desperate need of a wash. Oh yeah, AND we …

Twix Muffins

Twix Muffins

When An sent us this recipe, I really wanted to make Peanut Butter Twix Muffins. Caramel Twix are just fine, but Peanut Butter Twix hold the key to my heart, being superior tasting and somewhat nostalgic of my college days as my snack of choice. Unfortunately Peanut Butter Twix–like my kids when it’s time to …

Chunky Peach Muffins

Chunky Peach Muffins

Monday, Monday… Never the same without a muffin in hand and a coffee in the other!

This week, An of Baker Street chose Martha Stewart’s Chunky Apple Muffins as our starting point. I love apples, but I have an overabundance of peaches right now–thanks to one of my co-workers, who has some peach trees …
