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
