Muffins

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Muffins

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Muffins

I’m most definitely not a morning person. Fortunately my schedule as a grad student changes and I only have a couple of what I consider to be early mornings. When you do have to leave the house pre 8 AM, these muffins are the best way to convince yourself to get out of bed. Peanut…

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

I’ll post a pumpkin recipe since it is now October, and pumpkin season is in full swing. These were actually made in the middle of September, which Dustin claimed was too early. Whatever… he doesn’t have to eat anything he doesn’t want to (he did eat these, by the way). Usually when I make muffins…

Coffee Cake Muffins

Coffee Cake Muffins

As many things as I have mastered over the last year and a half of perfecting my baking, one seemingly simple thing that has managed to elude me is streusel topping. I have tried multiple different recipes with different ingredient ratios and butter temperature all over the map from right-out-of-the-fridge cold to just short of…

{Shortcut} Butterscotch Monkey Bread Muffins

{Shortcut} Butterscotch Monkey Bread Muffins

I’ve been planning on making monkey bread for Christmas morning a long time now. I had found recipes and an elaborate plan to make a full on monkey bread with yeasted brioche dough and homemade caramel completely from scratch. But as Christmas got nearer and I realized how much other stuff I had to do,…

Cranberry Orange Muffins

Cranberry Orange Muffins

As I’m sure everybody knows, today is 12/12/12! Pretty cool day numerically speaking, but… Today is also my birthday! Last night we went out to a fabulous dinner at Shiro’s in Seattle, the premier sushi restaurant in Seattle. This amazing sushi chef trained at an elite restaurant back in Japan. For Dustin’s birthday last month,…

Sweet Potato and Ginger Muffins

Sweet Potato and Ginger Muffins

Even though sweet potato puree is very reminiscent of pumpkin puree, which I love in baked goods, I had never thought to put it into a muffin. I’ve been saving this recipe for a cool, fall week in Seattle ever since I saw this recipe for sweet potato muffins in my Good To The Grain…

Coconut Muffins

Coconut Muffins

I made these muffins watching Jenn Kessy and April Ross beat Brazil to make it to the finals of the women’s beach volleyball during the Olympics a few weeks back. The match was pretty intense, and the Americans were the definite underdogs, but they came back to take down the number one team! I was…

Perfect Blueberry Muffins

Perfect Blueberry Muffins

Calling any muffin the perfect muffin is a big claim. Probably every blueberry muffin recipe you read describes it as the perfect blueberry muffin, but I did some research (and so did America’s Test Kitchen) to find the ultimate blueberry muffin because I have been craving a fluffy muffin with plump and juicy blueberries for…

Chocolate Cherry Muffins

Chocolate Cherry Muffins

Chocolate and cherries are a perfect flavor combination, so when I saw this recipe for cherry chocolate muffins, I thought this would be a great way to use our copious amounts of fresh cherries (and eat chocolate for breakfast). The best part about these muffins were that they don’t have a ton of sugar in…

Raspberry and Cream Muffins + A Busy Summer Day

Raspberry and Cream Muffins + A Busy Summer Day

Back in late July, Dustin and I went whale watching on a tour out of Anacrotes, Washington, about an hour and a half north of Seattle. It was a tour of mixed results. We did see a few Minke whales from a distance, which was nice, but if we’re being honest here, the real point…
