Muffins

Welcome to our Muffin Recipe Page.  Who doesn’t like muffins right??  We do, well I guess that I am the one who loves muffins the most, I could eat one every morning for breakfast and be happy.

There are so many different variations of muffins you could probably make up a new batch every week and not repeat the same one twice!  Muffins are great for breakfast and they pair really well with a great summer salad on the patio.  And if you think muffins can’t be served with dinner, think again, one of my all time favorites is corn bread muffins served with bbq ribs and beans!

As always the Muffin Recipe page is a work in progress.  Check back from time to time to see what we’ve added.
