A Muffin Cookbook unlike any you’ve ever seen! My Muffin Madness Cookbook has everything you’ll ever need in a muffin.
Madness and Necessity
In my family, I’ve always been known as the ‘Muffin Queen’. Out of necessity, I created muffins for breakfast, lunch, on the go snacks, sometimes dinner and a sweet yet healthyish treat for dessert.
As a single mom of 4, during those maddening, insanely disjointed, hectic years from age 6 to 16, with school, hobbies, work and hormones, I needed a friend!
Muffins became my antidote to madness, my friend. How? I needed a quick, healthy and affordable breakfast, lunch, to-go snack and a bribery sweet treat, and I needed the kids to be able to help make them.
Fast forward to my very chic and exciting grandma life now, in which I am the CEO of a scrumptious Food Blog, ‘Whisk and Dine,’ have become a public personality on several television cooking shows, and indulge in the healthy charms of a countryside home, my muffin repertoire has been elevated with a splash of whimsy and diversity, yet still easy enough for my grandchildren to make.
My Muffin Madness cookbook is something I hope will find a one in your lives, whether buzzing with busy kids, or in the calm elegance of your lovely kitchen life.
Best Muffin Cookbook
Hot off the press yet created over the span of 40-years, My Muffin Madness was created with the love for my children and grandchildren in mind when I made, tested and retested each recipe.
Sort Of Sweet muffins are a collage of sort of healthy nibbles. Fruits, both fresh and dried, grains of all types, nuts galore, honey, molasses or agave for a sweet kiss are the ingredients that go into my sort of sweet muffins.
Sort Of Savory Muffin recipes are totally ‘out of the box’ creativity! I was that weird mom that sent my kids to school with ‘over the top’ healthy food for their little lunches. Spanakopita was their favorite was to eat spinach, so I created my spanakopita in a muffin. Savory muffins are the best ‘to-go’ healthy meals without all the mess of a plate!
I love how we gravitate to specific flavors or visuals for various holidays, and so I just had to capture some of those in a muffin!
Using a baking mold that can shape the muffin for you, frees us to make a delicious muffin to bake inside, such as the Skull muffin tin I used for my Peppery Bacon Corn muffins for Halloween.
Eggnog has been the drink served at Christmas time since I was a kid. When I grew up and realized it was raw eggs, I never touched it again until I created a Deconstructed Cooked Egg Eggnog. But an eggnog muffin? The eggs, of course, are cooked and the finish is just as festive as any fabulous eggnog you’ve ever sipped.
Healthy Hack Muffins
A health nut since I was a teen and that was a longggggg time ago! In this section of recipes, while I have given you health hacks in a muffin for ordinary health concerns, such as antioxidants, tummy troubles and a good morning constitution (wink), you will find a section that may be totally foreign to you; Blood Type Eating.
