What I particularly enjoy about this recipe is the amount of salt in it. While it does have some brown sugar to help bring out the sweetness in the pumpkin and corn, it’s most definitely a muffin erring more on the side of "savory" than "sweet." Perfect, in my opinion, to enjoy over a cup of coffee in the morning or pass around the dinner table at night.
Give it a go and feel free to experiment with some of your favorite variations. Want to top it with chopped nuts or streusel? Go right ahead. Hankering to fold in 1 cup of shredded dry Jack or sharp cheddar cheese? Brilliant! – Patrick Deckertags: breakfast snacks lunch box brunch rice, grains and breads vegetables bake more
My kids, sadly, prefer Duncan Hines mix, which I refuse to buy (I have a baking business!) but my husband will "sneak" it for them periodically. I finally hit on my official favorite brownie recipe and the irony is that it most closely resembles our favorite DH boxed mix. Thick, chewy, toothsome, with the coveted crackly top. The recipe calls for three kinds of chocolate and is made in one bowl. I'm a believer.tags: desserts snacks bake more
I love the combination of feta and spinach because the saltiness of the cheese really pairs well with the mild earthiness of the spinach and the lemon zest just wakes it all up so beautifully with its bright and refreshing flavor. Baking the quiche filling inside a ciabatta loaf not only looks gorgeous, it means you don’t need utensils to eat it – this is a perfect playdate snack, because mommies can munch with one hand and hold their toddlers in the other. Genius, if I do say so myself!tags: snacks brunch rice, grains and breads eggs vegetables bake more
It’s no secret that I love oatmeal. I literally eat it all year round. I do, however, like to mix it up a bit as the weather warms up and make a chilled version of my favorite breakfast food. The best part is, it’s not only super quick to toss together, it can be made in advance and stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. This recipe is wide open to interpretation. In fact, I encourage you to play around with your favorite dried fruits and nuts and even spices. The possibilities are endless and only limited by your imagination, so go wild!!tags: breakfast snacks fruit rice, grains and breads no-cook more
