Meet the Cook: This recipe dates back to when our two girls - now 15 and 12 - were in preschool and it was my turn to bring a snack for the class. My husband especially asks for the muffins in winter.
Crafts and reading are my hobbies.

Meet the Cook: Because these muffins are a bit heavier than many of the snack type, they are perfect for when you wake up hungry. They're quick and easy, too. I adapted them from a poppy seed quick bread I was served once at a neighbor's.
My husband and I are the parents of three sons - 16, 15, and 12.

Meet the Cook: Unlike many other baked goods, these muffins aren't sweet...that's one of the reasons I like this recipe. I serve them with soups and stews, just like bread.
Cooking for family and friends is something I truly enjoy doing - it relaxes me. My husband and I have two children - a daughter, 4, and a son, 2.
