I can never seem to get out of bed with enough time to make breakfast. My solution is to make these muffins ahead of time and pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds just before heading out the door. —Sara Sanders, Fountain City, Indiana
Featuring three types of peppers and a hint of basil, these tender muffins are perfect with chicken. I trimmed down the original recipe to make them low in fat and cholesterol. -Karen Shipp of San Antonio, Texas
It's sometimes difficult to get our daughter to eat healthy foods, but she gobbles up these fruit-filled muffins. Although these are a "must" around the holidays, I keep cranberries in the freezer so I can whip up a batch any time of year. —Esther Bowers, Westland, Michigan
When she was a teenager, Patricia VanWyk of Newton, Iowa adapted this recipe from a cookbook. "Since we didn't have the caraway seeds called for in the original recipe, I substituted poppy seeds," she explains. "We liked the savory cheese-topped muffins so well I still make them this way."
Chopped green onions and three types of cheese perk up these suppertime specialties. The large light-textured muffins have a golden look and savory flavor that's ideal with any entree.

Your family will likely gobble up these airy muffins, which won me a blue ribbon at our county fair! Pretty as well as tasty, their hint of spice will brighten breakfast, brunch or lunch for family or company.
