A Popular Muffin Recipe!

I think it’s fun to take note of stats of particular posts, especially when they keep coming up in the top 5 for weeks at a time.

As of today, this recipe for Savory Cheddar Cheese Muffins¬†from my cookbook has been read over 7000 times, here at Veggies….That’s a lot of muffin-lovers! ūüėČ

If you haven’t tried these, they really are good. Light, fluffy and full of flavor.¬†Great with soups, chili, stews…and fall is certainly the time to start¬†enjoying all of those again.

I apologize for the less than perfect photo and text size. It was one of my earliest posts here at Veggies…and I had a lot to learn LOL.

Hope you enjoy¬†these muffins¬†soon. Happy Baking. ūüôā

A Good Add-On Recipe with Soup!

I’ve noted a lot of hits for this Cheddar Cheese muffin recipe in the past few days. There must be¬†quite a few people searching for a good add-on/sides to go with soups, chili etc… this time of year.

These muffins are consistently good. Nice texture, quick to make and a wonderful flavor. I also make them without the herbs for a breakfast-type muffin (yummy with blueberry or blackberry jam). They would be perfect with the Cream of Cauliflower soup recipe (post directly below this one). Do let me know if you give these a try!

On the home front, I’m working on a number of projects (as usual) including getting a number of knit and crochet items¬†blocked and ready to wear or give as gifts. There’s quite a stash of these, waiting! I blocked a beautiful moss green wool/hemp shawl last night and another one to do tonight. I will share pics as soon as I get a few more completed. It’s nice to finally see the final results. I don’t know why it’s sometimes hard to¬†get to¬†this final step. Is blocking ever fun?¬†LOL¬† I’m making progress now.

I also have some online projects in the works that will be finalized soon. I’m very excited about these and again, will share more about this soon.

What are you working on this week? ūüôā¬†¬†Do tell!

Savory Cheddar-Cheese Muffins

These muffins have received rave reviews from so many of my cookbook readers. And thousands of page reads, here at Veggies…So easy to make and¬† always delicious. Adding¬†crushed, dried¬†herbs makes these muffins ideal to accompany any soup. Leave the herbs out, add your favorite jam or preserves and you have a satisfying breakfast to go. Enjoy!!!¬†¬†¬† ¬†

2 teas. baking powder

1 C. milk 

1 large egg, beaten 

¬ľ C. light olive or vegetable oil¬†

Preheat oven to 400. Grease muffin tin and set aside. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add shredded cheese and¬† (optional) herbs and stir to combine.
